48% of Democrats want to replace Joe Biden as candidate: Rasmussen poll

While Democrats were divided when it came to who they'd like to see replace Biden, Michelle Obama was their first choice after the option "none of them."

A new poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports has found that nearly half of Democrats would like to see the party ditch Joe Biden and find a new candidate to take on Donald Trump in November.

While Democrats were divided when it came to who they'd like to see replace Biden, Michelle Obama appeared to be their first choice.

According to the poll, 48 percent of Democrat voters said they would "somewhat" to "strongly" approve of the party "finding another candidate to replace Joe Biden."

Among Americans of all political persuasions, 47 percent said they believed it was "somewhat" to "very likely" possible that Democrats would switch candidates, with 33 percent of blue voters thought so.

Respondents were given a list of potential replacements, and asked, "Which of the following Democrats do you think would be a better presidential candidate than Joe Biden?

Among those named were Vice President Kamala Harris, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former First Lady Michelle Obama, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. Respondents also had the option to choose "none of them."

While "none of them" ended up receiving the most support with 46 percent, among the actual options Obama came out on top, with 15 percent of voters overall and 20 percent of Democrats saying she would be the best replacement. Harris garnered 10 percent of the vote, while 9 percent said they wanted to see Hillary Clinton in the White House.

Despite repeated calls from certain sects of the Democratic base for Obama to put her name in the race, the former first lady has made it clear that while she will continue to do what she can to ensure the best future for Americans, she has no interest in running herself.

The poll was conducted via telephone and online among 960 likely voters between February 18-20. It has a margin of error of 3 percent.
