Slightly more people think Joe Biden should replace Kamala Harris on the 2024 presidential ticket than keep her, according to a new survey released Monday by Rasmussen Reports.
Harris, whose anti-gun-rights and other social issues stances equal, if not exceed, those of Biden, gets the support of 41 percent of likely voters. However, 45 percent favor replacing her with a different running mate, the veteran polling firm discovered with its survey, conducted Nov. 16 and Nov. 19-20 from among 997 likely voters. The survey has a +/- 3 percentage point sampling of error, with a 95 percent level of confidence.
According to Rasmussen, “Among Democrats, 57% think Harris should be Biden’s running mate again, an opinion shared by only 30% of Republicans and 32% of voters not affiliated with either major party.”
Biden has made it clear he is running for re-election. However, he has appeared to be increasingly frail, and continues to stammer during press events or public speaking appearances.
On the other side of the political fence, Rasmussen said if Donald Trump gets the 2024 nomination, 16 percent of likely voters think he should choose Nikki Haley as his running mate while 12 percent favor Gov. Ron DeSantis for the vice presidential slot. Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie gets 11 percent support and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy has 10 percent support to be Trump’s running mate.
The survey also identified some less-likely Trump running mates, including Arizona’s Kari Lakem, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, businessman Mike Lindell and attorney Harmeet Dhillon.
According to Rasmussen, Harris gets the strongest support from black voters (60%), but only 38 percent support from white voters. Among other minorities, she only gets 36 percent support.
