Another Reuters/Ipsos poll published on 16 November revealed that Americans who are inclined to vote for Biden in the 2024 election said they are more motivated to stop Donald Trump from returning to the Oval Office than they are by supporting the incumbent.

The two-day poll, which closed on Tuesday, showed Biden and Trump locked in a tight race, with Republican Trump leading Biden 51 per cent to 49 per cent when respondents were asked to pick between the two, within the poll's credibility interval of about four percentage points. As per a Reuters poll, many Americans are fed up with both Biden and Trump. The Reuters/Ipsos poll showed significant support for independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr, an anti-vaccine activist and scion of a storied political family.

In a hypothetical three-way contest, 30 per cent of poll respondents picked Biden, 32 per cent picked Trump and 20 per cent selected Kennedy. The rest said were unsure or wouldn't vote. The poll was conducted online, gathering responses from 1,006 adults nationwide.
