(Washington, DC) -- A majority of Americans apparently don't want either President Biden or former President Trump to run for the White House in 2024.

"And so we don't want to repeat that, being people not being on board with the candidates," said Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson. "It's going to take alternatives."

An NBC News poll finds 70 percent of those surveyed, including just over half of all Democrats, believe Biden shouldn't run for a second term. Half of them cite Biden's age as a major factor.

As for Trump, 60 percent of those polled, including a third of Republicans, think the former President should not run in 2024.

The poll was taken just days before Biden's expected announcement for re-election, which could come as soon as this week.
