Spritz thinks the Dems should run Che Guevara 2024. Hold on...listen before you dismiss.

Easy...dont' blow a gasket just yet. My logic. The Dems don't want some fuddy duddy retread. They're looking for someone who's inspirational and of course "progressive", sorry "very progressive".

Che fits all the bills. Yes, he's a dead guy...but honestly, I'm not sure that's a bad thing. We can all pretend he's living with Joe in the Sleepy Acres Memory Rehab Center. Plus the campaign posters would be amazing!

2024: Voters Don’t Want Retread Presidential Candidates

Rasmussen Polling

Thursday, July 21, 2022

Media rumors suggest Hillary Clinton may be planning a comeback, but voters overwhelmingly don’t want her to make another White House run in 2024. However, voters also aren’t keen on other failed candidates who have previously sought the presidency.

A new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports finds that 69% of Likely U.S. voters believe Clinton shouldn’t run for president again in 2024, while just 20% think the former Secretary of State should run again. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Voters have similarly negative opinions about 2024 White House bids by such hopefuls as Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Utah Sen. Mitt Romney and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

With many Democrats souring on President Joe Biden, whose approval ratings are at or near historic lows, Clinton’s prospects for a 2024 campaign have been boosted in the news media. Recent weeks have seen headlines like “The whispers of Hillary Clinton 2024 have started” (CNN) and “Now more than ever, Democrats need Hillary Clinton” (The Hill). However, even most voters in her own party are against a Clinton comeback in 2024.

Fifty-three percent (53%) of Democratic voters say Clinton should not run for president again in 2024, a sentiment shared by 83% of Republicans and 72% of voters not affiliated with either major party.

The survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters was conducted on July 12-13, 2022 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Clinton can take solace in the fact that voters also oppose other losing presidential candidates taking another swing at the White House. Twenty-one percent (21%) of Likely Voters favor a 2024 presidential campaign by Sanders, who placed second in the Democratic primaries in 2016 and 2020. Just 20% say yes to another White House run by Cruz, who lost the 2016 GOP nomination to former President Donald Trump. And only 19% want a 2024 presidential bid from Romney, who got the 2012 Republican nomination and lost to former President Barack Obama.

Democrats are even more opposed to another White House run by Sanders than they are to a Clinton 2024 campaign. While 33% of Democratic voters want Hillary to run again, just 28% of Democrats favor Sanders in 2024 and 59% are opposed.

Republicans are much more against Romney than Cruz. Twenty-eight percent (28%) of GOP voters say yes to a Cruz 2024 presidential campaign, compared to just 16% who think Romney should run for the White House again. Seventy-one percent (71%) of Republicans say no to another Romney campaign in 2024, compared to 48% who say the same of Cruz.

A Clinton comeback in 2024 is opposed by majorities of nearly every demographic category. Seventy percent (70%) of men and 68% of women voters say Clinton should not run for president again in 2024. Another Clinton campaign in 2024 is opposed by 76% of whites, 47% of black voters and 61% of other minorities, with just 15% of whites, 39% of black voters and 26% of other minorities saying she should run again in 2024.

Voters under 40 are less opposed than their elders to another Clinton campaign in 2024. However, more under-40 voters favor a 2024 White House bid by Sanders (34%) than Clinton (32%).

Breaking down the electorate by education levels, majorities are against another Clinton presidential run in every category except those who didn’t finish high school, where 47% favor a Clinton 2024 campaign and 27% are against it.

By an overwhelming margin, voters don’t want President Biden to seek reelection, and they’re not excited about two possible alternatives in 2024, either.

While President Biden has denied involvement in his son Hunter’s foreign business dealings, most voters don’t believe the president’s denials.
