President Joe Biden speaks about education loan debt forgiveness in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, Aug. 24, 2022, in Washington. One in four Black borrowers would see their debt cleared entirely beneath the administrations plan, which cancels $10,000 in federal education loan debt for all those with incomes below $125,000 per year, or households that earn significantly less than $250,000. The program includes yet another $10,000 in relief for Pell Grant recipients, that are more than doubly apt to be Black. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci, File)
Fifty-nine percent of Democrats in Massachusetts say President Biden shouldn’t seek another term, in accordance with a University of Massachusetts Center for Public Opinion poll published Thursday.
The poll, published prior to the states primary elections on Tuesday, shows 77 percent of Democratic voters in Massachusetts approve of Biden, yet they favor other candidates for his or her 2024 nominee.
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg had the best support for another presidential election, at 53 percent, while 51 percent said Vice President Harris should run. Both Harris and Buttigieg previously ran in 2020 against Biden.
Other high-profile Democrats scoring high marks of approval for a White House run include Sens. Elizabeth Warren (Mass,) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), at about 40 percent.
John Cluverius, director of survey research for the guts for Public Opinion, said Democrats in Massachusetts are prepared for Biden to pass the torch.
Any political scientist will let you know that the very best technique for any party in capacity to win re-election is because of its incumbent President to perform again, he said in a statement.
The news headlines comes as Bidens approval rating hit 40 percent in August following the president notched a number of victories, including passing the historic climate, tax and healthcare bill the Inflation Reduction Act and announcing an idea to cancel around $20,000 in student debt for a few borrowers.
Thats up from 31 percent in exactly the same poll in July, once the president was fighting high inflation, soaring gas prices and stalled agendas in Congress.
THE GUTS for Public Opinion poll was conducted Aug. 15-26 among 800 Massachusetts Democrats. The margin of error is 3.9 percentage points.
