The Majority Of Voters Don't Think Biden Will Run Again

As reported by Newsmax, the survey also revealed that the majority of voters — almost two-thirds —  believe Biden's first term will be his last.

The poll found that 64 percent of likely voters surveyed believed that Harris would be president before the end of Biden's four-year term.

Theories have long swirled around the possibility that Biden will be replaced by Harris.

As The Inquisitr reported, The Daily Wire's Ian Haworth previously suggested that Harris' phone call duties are a sign that she will be assuming power earlier than previously predicted.

Oddsmakers Suggested Harris Has Better 2024 Odds Than Biden

Online betting site US-Bookies previously gave Harris better chances than Biden to win the 20204 presidential race, The Hill reported.

“Kamala Harris remains the favorite to win the 2024 U.S. Presidential Election. Her 7/2 odds (22.2% implied probability) put her just ahead of Joe Biden, who’s 9/2 (18.2%) to win re-election in 2024,” a release from the oddsmaker said.

According to the site, Harris had 7-to-4- odds of being the Democratic Party's 2024 nominee, while Biden had 9-to-4 odds.

The odds were released in April of 2021.
