POLL: Many Voters are Open to Voting for a Third Party Candidate In 2024 Presidential Election
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 43% of likely United States voters would pull the lever for President Joe Biden in the 2024 presidential election. By contrast, 42% indicated that they would vote for Trump. 12% of voters signaled that they would vote for another candidate.
If the 2024 presidential election ends up being a rematch of Joe Biden vs. Donald Trump and there’s also a strong third party presidential candidate present, 38% of voters indicated that they would vote for a third party candidate. This includes 16% who said that it’s very likely that they would vote for a third party.
On the other hand, 56% of voters expressed how they are unlikely to vote for a third party candidate, which includes 35% who expressed it’s “Not At All Likely” they will end up doing so.
42% of Democrat voters, 35% of Republican voters, and 37% of independent voters are at least somewhat likely to pull the lever for a third party candidate if the 2024 presidential election is a Biden-Trump rematch.
In this likely rematch, Biden would pick up 80% of Democrat voters, 15% of Republican voters, and 31% of independent voters. Trump would pick up 68% of Republican voters, 14% of Democrat voters, and 47% of independent voters.
44% of white voters, 49% of black voters, and 36% of non-black minorities are in favor of Biden. Trump is backed by 42% of white voters, 39% of black voters, and 45% of other non-black minorities. Black voters were the group most likely to consider voting for a strong third party candidate in the 2024 presidential election.
87% of self-identified liberals would pull the lever for Biden in a 2024 rematch against Trump. Additionally, 47% of moderate voters and 17% of conservative voters share this view. Trump has the support of 66% of conservative votes and 34% of moderate voters, but only 9% of liberal voters. Liberal voters are the least likely group to indicate that they would vote for a strong third party presidential candidate.
When it comes to income earners, those making over $100,000 annually are most likely to indicate that they would vote for a strong third party presidential candidate in 2024, but they are also more likely to prefer Biden over Trump in a presidential rematch.
Americans have every reason to be disappointed with the current electoral system. It serves to prop up the DC duopoly which actually functions as a Uniparty once in power.
That said, the election of Donald Trump in 2016 was the closest thing to a third party win in American political history.
Despite his flawed presidency, Trump brought in massive dissident energy to American politics unlike any other candidate in American history. There’s no real reason to be going hard on Trump. If anything, we should be learning from Trump’s mistakes and building off his successes. That’s how we move forward and restore order in this country.
