  • Six democrat voters out of ten (58%) would have preferred the Democratic Party to choose a candidate other than Joe Biden. This proportion is higher (72%) among democrat voters aged 18 to 34 years old.

Methodology

This web survey was conducted from May 24 to 26, 2024, with 1,620 Canadians and 1,003 Americans, 18 years of age or older, randomly recruited from LEO’s online panel.

A margin of error cannot be associated with a non-probability sample in a panel survey. For comparison, a probability sample of 1,620 respondents would have a margin of error of ±2.44%, 19 times out of 20, while a probability sample of 1,003 respondents would have a margin of error of ±3.09%, 19 times out of 20.
