In a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll, alarming numbers have emerged for President Joe Biden as he gears up for a potential rematch against former President Donald Trump. The survey, conducted among 1,250 American adults, reveals that Trump is currently leading at 40%, while Biden lags behind at 34%.
But a big concern for both candidates is the significant 18% of respondents who expressed their unwillingness to cast their vote if faced with a choice between Biden and Trump. This substantial portion of the electorate opting out of the process underscores a growing disillusionment among Americans with political options that are currently available.
Beyond the individual candidates, the poll sheds light on a broader sentiment permeating the electorate – and that is dissatisfaction with the two-party political system. The fact that nearly one-fifth of respondents would abstain from voting underlines a deep-seated frustration with the perceived limitations of the current political landscape. The poll also showed that the age of both candidates is a concern for voters as well.
