New Poll Provides Brutal News For Democrats Who Want To Replace Biden


A new poll from Ipsos/Reuters found that Democrats will have a difficult time defeating former President Donald Trump even if they move to replace President Biden.

A number of Democrat lawmakers have been calling on President Biden to step aside in the days following last Thursday’s disastrous debate. Despite growing panic, Biden has repeatedly refused to step down and has remained adamant that he will stay in the race.

If Democrats did move to oust Biden, it will be difficult to replace him with anyone other than Vice President Kamala Harris, as campaign finance laws would prevent the transfer of Biden Campaign donations to anyone else. Harris is also expected to receive the president’s support if the Democratic Party takes the choice out of his hands.

Harris and other top replacement candidates — including Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and California Governor Gavin Newsom — have publicly offered support to Biden over the last week and a half. Harris participated in a campaign “pep talk” with staffers earlier this week while Democratic governors have stood behind Biden after attending a White House meeting earlier this week.

Recent polling has found that a growing number of Americans want Biden to step aside, including 32 percent of Democrats, according to the latest Reuters/Ipsos survey.

While Biden and former President Donald Trump remain tied in the same poll, the results are less than encouraging for those who want the president replaced. Trump beats Harris with 43 percent of the vote to 42 percent, while Newsom comes up short by three points in a 42 percent to 39 percent race.

The results were even worse for Whitmer, who trails trump by four percentage points. Additional candidates, including Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear and Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker, also come up short against former President Trump.

Reuters/Ipsos did find one candidate who would be able to provide a win for Democrats, as the poll found Michelle Obama slightly in front in a head-to-head matchup with Trump. Obama has repeatedly stated that she is not interested in running for president, however.

“As former First Lady Michelle Obama has expressed several times over the years, she will not be running for president,” Crystal Carson, director of communications for her office, said in March.

“Mrs. Obama supports President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ re-election campaign,” the statement added.
