According to a poll of probable voters in New Hampshire, the state that hosts the first primary in presidential elections, only 9% of people "absolutely" want President Biden to run again, while 20% said he should "probably" do so.
According to a University of New Hampshire Survey Center poll issued on Wednesday, the percentage of respondents who are unambiguously opposed to Biden running again rose from 43% in 2021 to 52% in 2022.
Just 54 percent of prospective Democratic voters believed that Biden should run for office again, a significant decline from the 74 percent of Democrats who classified themselves as such in the University of New Hampshire study from 2021.
A Wednesday poll evaluating support for possible 2024 candidates found that Vice President Kamala Harris has far lower approval ratings in New Hampshire than President Joe Biden.
Biden's net unfavorability, which was set in May 2020, just before he received the Democratic presidential nomination, is tied for the lowest ever at - 30 percentage points.
In light of the president's dismal approval ratings, worries about his age, and the prospect for a devastating election cycle for Democrats, speculation about choosing a Democratic nominee other than Biden has grown recently.
Voters viewed Florida Governor Ron DeSantis more favorably than former President Donald Trump in the University of New Hampshire poll that featured included candidates for the Republican presidential nomination.

DeSantis' advantage was comfortably within the survey's sample error. Respondents were given a list of probable candidates for the GOP presidential candidacy in 2024.
In a hypothetical general election contest in 2024, the survey reveals that DeSantis would defeat Biden 47 percent to 46 percent in New Hampshire while Biden would defeat Trump 50 percent to 43 percent.
