A majority of Democrats say they want a new leader to run for election in 2024, in a further sign that Joe Biden could end up becoming a one-term president.  

Only 35% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents want to see Biden stick around while the poll suggests the majority, 56%, would like to see the Democratic party choose someone else. 

The findings were revealed by  a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, as speculation mounts that the 79 year-old president - the eldest in American history - will be too old to remain in office. 

The lack of fervor for President Biden is not because Democrats think Biden is doing a terrible job.

In fact, the President's overall approval rating across Americans of all political affiliations increased from 36 percent in July to 43 percent in September.

On the other side of the aisle, Republicans seem to have have more excitement for Trump to run again than Democratic voters feel for Biden, although there was bad news for the 45th president too. 

The figures suggest Republicans and GOP-leaning independents, are completely split on whether Donald Trump should make a third run at the White House. 

The poll suggests GOP voters are split 47%-46% on Trump to the nominee.

That level of support sits 20 points lower than when he was nominated in 2020, as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is touted as a new challenger for the role.

The figures appear to show that voters from all ideologies want to see fresh faces enter politics. 

Last weekend, Biden would not commit to running for re-election in 2024, though he told CBS News that is 'the current plan'

The poll also calculated a 2024 presidential election that would essentially be a repeat of the 2020 vote. 

In the hypothetical match-up between the same two contenders, Biden would have the support of 48 per cent of the poll respondents, while Trump would get 46 per cent - in effect, 'too close to call'.

Among registered voters, the result flips, with 48 per cent opting for Trump, and 46 per cent deciding to go for Biden.  

Trump is still the favored candidate to run in this poll despite 52 per cent of Americans saying he should be charged with a crime in any number of federal investigations that he is now facing. 

If Trump does not run, a decision the former president is likely to delay for as long as possible, there are inklings that Florida's Governor Ron DeSantis could edge his name onto the GOP's ticket.

DeSantis, a pugnacious governor has used the power of his office to rise to national prominence by shunning COVID-19 lockdowns, mocking Biden's age and abilities, penalizing Disney World for opposing a new state law limiting discussion of LGBTQ issues in schools, and
