A majority of Americans do not want Donald Trump to run for President again in 2024, according to a new poll, while another indicates he’s behind President Joe Biden in a hypothetical contest.
What Happened: A new poll from PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll indicates that 61% of Americans don’t want Trump to take another shot at the presidency.
Forty-four percent of Americans believe that Trump has done something illegal, according to the poll, while almost half believe that he should be charged with a crime, reported PBS.
The level of support for Trump is largely unchanged from Dec. 2020 — a month after he lost the last presidential election to Biden.
“The good thing for former President Trump is his numbers don’t drop. The bad thing is he’s only talking about a third of the electorate who are in his corner,” said Lee Miringoff, the director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, according to PBS.
Meanwhile, a Yahoo News-YouGov poll, first noted on The Hill, showed that 48% of registered voters would vote for Biden if the 2024 election were to take place today, while 42% would vote for Trump.
Biden is leading Trump by 6 points in this poll, while he held a 3-point lead in the hypothetical 2020 rematch. Trump’s support was steady in both polls.
The poll was conducted between Sept. 2 and Sept. 6 with 1,634 U.S. respondents and carries a 2.6 percentage point margin of error, according to the Hill.

Why It Matters: Both polls indicate that the base for Trump remains steady and largely unchanged.
The PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll noted that the views of Trump’s actions are largely based on partisan lines. The opposition to his candidacy is largely driven by Democrats.
