Many Michigan voters ready to move on from Trump, Biden in 2024

President Joe Biden rallied in Maryland while former President Donald Trump rallied in Ohio ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.

President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump have something in common that may prove troublesome to both: Michiganders in each of their parties are largely cool on the prospect of either being the presidential nominee in 2024.

So says a poll of likely voters released Friday.

Start with the current president. Among self-identified Democrats surveyed by EPIC-MRA of Lansing, just 24% said they wanted Biden to be their party’s nominee in two years. A majority of them — 60% — said they want someone else. Sixteen percent were undecided.

The news isn’t much better for former President Donald Trump, who recently announced he is running for reelection in two years. Trump faces a similar problem with Michigan Republicans. Only 35% of those voters are supporting his candidacy, with 47% saying they preferred someone else to be the GOP nominee. Eighteen percent were undecided.
