Who will be the Democratic nominee for the 2024 US Presidential Election? (Who will be the Democratic nominee for the 2024 US Presidential Election? (Michelle Obama))
Joe Biden won the 2020 US Presidential Election against incumbent President Donald Trump. Biden has since expressed his intention multiple times of running for re-election, particularly if the Republican party nominated Donald Trump again. However, a March 2022 poll found that 52% of Americans expected Biden not to run for re-election, versus 29% who expected that he would. Biden's approval rating has remained from 45% to 40% from September 2021 to June 2022, and the US Inflation rate reached 8.5% in 2022.
Vice President Kamala Harris, often speculated as being likely to run in 2024, has had a net -10% approval rating from January to June 2022. As of June 2022, no other candidates have expressed intent to run, and no candidate (besides Harris), stands out in early polling.
The New York Times reported in June 2022 that many top Democrat officials expressed (off the record) concerns about a Biden re-election campaign, and uncertainty about selecting an alternative nominee.
