Following his disastrous debate performance, 68% of independent voters want President Joe Biden to drop out of the 2024 race, according to a JL Partners poll, while only 32% believe he should remain the Democrats’ nominee. There is increasing pressure on Biden to step down following his performance on Thursday as many Democrats and members of the media reacted negatively to his performance. But a Biden campaign official stated that the president will stay in the race, while it’s being reported that Biden will take part in the ABC News debate in September.

The poll found that 41 percent of independent voters who supported Biden in 2020 think he should withdraw from the race. Among independents, 44 percent said they now plan to vote for former President Donald Trump, marking a four-point increase after the debate. In contrast, Biden experienced a decline in support, with only 24 percent of independents indicating that they intend to vote for him, down from 28 percent prior to the debate, Breitbart News reported.

The outlet added:

Sixty-four percent of voters believe the Democrat party should replace Biden as its nominee, a New York Times/Siena poll found this week, underscoring a lack of enthusiasm behind the president’s reelection campaign.

The poll asked voters, “Do you think Joe Biden should remain the Democratic Party’s nominee for president, or should there be a different Democratic nominee for president?”

  • Yes: 29 percent
  • No: 64 percent

Among Democrats, a slim majority said Biden should remain on the ticket:

  • Yes: 52 percent
  • No: 45 percent

An overwhelming amount of independents said Biden should not remain on the ticket:

  • Yes: 21 percent

  • No: 71 percent

Conservatives are actively preparing for another Trump presidency by launching a highly focused and organized effort to maximize his potential second term. According to The Center Square, “the movement, named Project 2025, announced this week it had the backing of 100 conservative groups, including the most established and well-funded institutions inside Washington, D.C.”

There are four areas of focus for the project, per the outlet:

  • A database of conservatives and Trump loyalists to quickly stock the executive branch.
  • Preemptive training for those appointees so they can immediately take action once they take office.
  • An aggressive policy agenda to begin implementing on day one.
  • A 180-day playbook for Trump’s second term.

During his first term, former President Trump faced significant challenges that hindered his administration’s effectiveness. These included defections within his ranks, uncooperative Republican leaders who often opposed him on various policy issues despite having full control of Congress, and a barrage of investigations from Executive Branch agencies. Notably, the special counsel investigation into alleged ‘Russian collusion,’ authorized by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, was a major distraction, the outlet reported. Trump’s initial months and years in office were also marked by chaos and disorganization because his victory over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton took many by surprise, the outlet reported.

“This is a historic moment for the conservative movement,” Paul Dans, director of the 2025 Presidential Transition Project, said in a statement, per The Center Square. “From the time we launched this project, we knew conservatives needed to put aside differences and come together if we are to succeed in restoring our federal government to one ‘of the people, by the people, and for the people.’ And reaching 100 members on our advisory board is monumental.”
