As Joe Biden and Kamala Harris grow increasingly more unpopular, Democrats are scurrying to find candidates outside of the administration to lead the ticket in 2024, including Hillary Clinton, some strategists suggest.
However, if she tries, the twice-failed presidential candidate will likely find herself losing for a third time.
Hillary Clinton is currently trailing 45th President Donald Trump by 10 points (51 percent to 41 percent) in a hypothetical 2024 head-to-head rematch, according to a McLaughlin & Associates poll of likely voters.
Trump crushed Clinton’s presidential dreams nearly six years ago after he won the presidency against all odds with an upset victory over the long-time politician.
Interestingly, the poll surveyed more Democrats than Republicans (37 percent to 36 percent), but the 45th president still polled far ahead of them in a hypothetical match-up.
Trump polled ahead of Joe Biden, of whom nearly three-fifths of Americans disapprove, by five points, and Kamala Harris by 11 points.
While Trump is set to comfortably clinch the 2024 GOP primary if he seeks nomination, Biden, Harris, and Clinton are not.
Only 25 percent of Democrats would support Biden in the 2024 Democrat primaries, according to the poll. Harris and Clinton were even more unpopular, each receiving less than 10 percent support.
Meanwhile, former first lady Michelle Obama received 17 percent support in a hypothetical primary, only eight points under Biden, which she could easily surmount if she runs a strong campaign.
Without Biden on the ticket, Mrs. Obama led the primaries with 22 percent. Harris came in second with 16 percent. Clinton and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., tied for third with nine percent each.
Whichever Democrat grabs the nomination will face difficulty winning the general election by virtue of divide within their own party, election integrity reform in states such as Georgia, the increasing unpopularity of the Biden administration, and the surging popularity of President Donald Trump.
