Voters aren’t eager for a rematch between former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden in 2024, new polling suggests.

A CNN/SRSS survey conducted from December 1 to December 7 revealed that most Democrats and left-leaning Independents — 59 percent — would prefer another candidate to win the Democratic National Committee nomination.

Sixty-two percent of Republicans and right-leaning Independents would prefer someone other than Trump to win the Republican National Committee nomination.

However, the survey revealed that if both candidates survived the primaries, most of the party-affiliated voters would support them.

Thirty-six percent of Republican participants indicated they would “definitely” vote for the former President if he survived the GOP primary, while 30 percent said they would “probably” support Trump.

Trump’s loss in support culminates to 12 percentage points over the last three surveys, according to CNN.

Biden has far better odds among Democratic voters. Fifty-one percent of Democratic and left-leaning Independents would “definitely” support Biden if he won the primaries. In comparison, 28 percent said they would “probably” support Biden should he win the primaries.

Biden also had better approval than potential competitors in the Democratic primaries. The President beat California Governor Gavin Newsom and Vice President Kamala Harris in hypothetical one-on-one matches in the Democratic primary.

However, Trump was beaten by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in a hypothetical one-on-one match between the two.

DeSantis has also outpaced Trump in approval among Republican and right-leaning Independents.

The survey was conducted on a randomly selected national sample of 1,207 adults, with a margin of error of 3.6 percent.
