Biden expresses skepticism at polls showing that Democrats want a new presidential nominee in 2024: 'Do you know any polling that's accurate these days?'

"Y'all told me I couldn't win the general election. We did well. I feel good about where we are," Biden told Noticias Telemundo during an interview.
President Joe Biden has not yet formally announced his 2024 presidential campaign, but he is widely expected to do so in the coming weeks.

Amid the chatter about the upcoming White House race are several surveys, notably a recent ABC News-Washington Post poll, which have shown that Democratic voters wanted someone other than Biden to lead the party in 2024.

The ABC News-Washington Post survey revealed that 58% of Democratic-leaning respondents wanted a new presidential standard-bearer in 2024, compared to only 31% of respondents from this group who wanted to see Biden run for reelection. (Ten percent of Democratic-leaning respondents had no opinion on the matter.)

However, Biden, who stumbled in the earliest Democratic nominating contests in 2020 but was able to soar to the top of the field after the crucial South Carolina primary, said that he wasn't worried about such polling.

The president, in making his case to Noticias Telemundo on Thursday, pointed to the raft of polls that predicted major Republican gains in the 2022 midterms, only for the GOP to underperform relative to expectations.

He said that he felt confident in his standing among Democrats across the country, despite some surveys showing the desire for another nominee.

"That's not what I hear. Look, do you know any polling that's accurate these days?" he said on the program.

"You all told me that there was no way we were going to do well in this off-year election. I told you from the beginning we're going to do well. Y'all told me I couldn't win the general election. We did well. I feel good about where we are," he continued.

Biden then remarked again on disparities in polling, which were evident in many races in both 2020 and 2022.

"I feel good about the way things are, and I feel good about the reception I get. And I think it's awfully difficult to poll these days," he said.
