If you’re feeling like the Trump v. Biden rivalry has sort of fizzled out of competition and relevance, you’re not alone.
In fact, a recent poll found the majority of Democrats would like to see someone other than Biden on the ballot; whereas a growing amount of Republicans wish to see a younger candidate represent the party in the 2024 election.
The 2024 presidential election poll shows interest in Trump v. Biden is dropping
At the time, Trump’s support has fallen to 44%, with 49% claiming they’d much prefer another candidate over him. The selection is already looking pretty good, seeing as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis may be taking the lead among the other candidates.

His performance during the midterm elections, as well as his work as the state’s governor, makes him an excellent candidate for office.
Biden’s trend of being the least popular president in recent history has continued. 62% of all Americans would be disappointed and even angry if he were to be reelected in 2024.
It was already obvious that not even his fellow party members want to look at him for much longer; if his declining health is taken into consideration, he’s not a good fit for the White House anyways.
On top of this, only 7% are actually enthusiastic about Biden as a candidate and the possibility of him winning this time around; if this keeps up, his shot of even running for office will take a massive hit in the coming year.

Big red flags for Biden’s and Trump’s 2024 campaigns
However, if we take a look at the grand scheme of things, nothing much has changed since the midterm elections a couple of months ago. Both of the old men had their work cut out for them even then.
While this was surprising for the handful of Biden supporters who were amazed at his performance during the midterm cycle, this was a long time coming. Biden’s unwillingness to fight for this country was his downfall.
Despite the Democrat Party overperforming during last year’s midterms, it didn’t do much in terms of improving voter sentiment. The tiny bit of advantage he’d gained for a solid week quickly dried up as if it was never there.

Seeing that we’re only a year from the primary season for the presidential election, this can only spell disaster for Biden’s campaign; although the same can be said for Donald Trump, who suffered major losses as well.
We already knew the 2024 run wouldn’t be easy for Trump, but the growing number of alternative candidates, paired with DeSantis’ interest in the White House, may be enough to stop his campaign dead in its tracks, at some point.
Of course, he’s still doing better than Biden, but if you add two and two, it’s easy to see that barely anyone is excited to watch this pairing for a second time.
Both Biden and Trump have aged way past their expiration date in terms of competence for the White House, at least comparatively; the average American is perfectly aware of this.
