( – A new Monmouth University poll released on Thursday has found that American voters are more certain about who they don’t want to support in the 2024 presidential election, rather than who they want to support.

The poll asked voters to choose in hypothetical head-to-head match-ups between President Biden against possible Republican nominees, including former President Trump, former Vice President Mike Pence, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. DeSantis and Trump have officially joined the Republican primary race, while Pence has not yet declared his candidacy.

In the hypothetical match-ups, 44 to 46 percent of voters stated that they would “definitely” not support Biden, while 7 to 8 percent said that they would “probably” not vote for him.

Around one-third of respondents also said that they would “definitely” vote in favor of Biden against both Trump and DeSantis, who received 32 and 31 percent. In a race against Pence, 27 percent stated that they would definitely vote for Biden.

In races against Biden, 46 percent said that they would “definitely” not vote for Trump, while 29 percent have said that they will. Forty-one percent said that they would “definitely” not support DeSantis, while 26 percent said that they will. Finally in the Biden vs. Pence hypothetical race, 36 percent said they would not vote for Pence, while 18 percent said that they definitely would.

The GOP presidential primary includes a lot more names that were not accounted for in this poll including, Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy.

The poll surveyed 907 registered voters and was conducted between May 18-23. The margin of error was 5.5 percentage points.
