A new Emerson College poll released on Tuesday shows that 58 percent of registered Democrats currently believed that Biden should be the Democratic Presidential nominee for 2024. However, around 42 percent said that they wanted to see someone else as the nominee.

Spencer Kimball, the executive director of Emerson College Polling has said that Biden has managed to win the support of many minority groups. According to the poll, 72 percent of Hispanic Democratic voters and 75 percent of Black Democratic voters wanted to see Biden as the Presidential nominee. By contrast, only 51 percent of white voters said that Biden was who should be the 2024 presidential nominee.

According to the same poll, there has also been an increase in Biden’s approval rates which have gone up to 44 percent. The November Emerson college survey had placed his approval rating at 39 percent. However, despite the increase in his approval rating, his disapproval rating had consistently remained at 48 percent.

Speculations want Biden to be preparing to make the official announcement that he would be seeking reelection. According to an on The Hill, Biden is most likely going to announce his reelection campaign in February.

However, Biden currently also has to face the investigations into the classified documents that were found in his former office in Washington, D.C., and Delaware home. The several batches of classified documents have also led to a lot of criticisms for the President.

The Emerson poll also showed that in a potential matchup with former President Trump, who is facing a similar investigation, Biden would lose, with only 41 percent of the respondents choosing him, while Trump would have 44 percent of the votes in his favor.
