Lisa Lerer, a national political correspondent for The New York Times, spoke to voters about their options in the 2024 presidential election.

00:00:00.000 —> 00:00:03.210 Not interested in seeing Biden-Trump rematch again. 00:00:03.210 —> 00:00:04.730 We’ve done that already. 00:00:04.730 —> 00:00:06.860 I think both parties can do better. 00:00:06.860 —> 00:00:09.320 I kind of felt like, why are you making me choose 00:00:09.320 —> 00:00:10.760 between these two people? 00:00:10.760 —> 00:00:13.790 ”We are here at the Iowa State Fair, that bastion 00:00:13.790 —> 00:00:15.770 of fried food and politics, to talk 00:00:15.770 —> 00:00:19.460 to voters about how they are feeling about the 2024 00:00:19.460 —> 00:00:20.047 election.“ 00:00:20.047 —> 00:00:22.130 The polls are showing us that a lot of the people — 00:00:22.130 —> 00:00:24.500 the candidates coming through this fair greeting, 00:00:24.500 —> 00:00:26.600 voters, making their stump speech — 00:00:26.600 —> 00:00:28.880 really don’t have a chance, at least not right now, 00:00:28.880 —> 00:00:32.000 unless things change — that this is really shaping up 00:00:32.000 —> 00:00:35.090 to be a race between a president, Joe Biden, 00:00:35.090 —> 00:00:37.220 and a former president, Donald Trump, 00:00:37.220 —> 00:00:39.750 coming back together for a rematch. 00:00:39.750 —> 00:00:41.960 And that’s really something that voters are not very 00:00:41.960 —> 00:00:43.430 enthusiastic about. 00:00:43.430 —> 00:00:45.300 I do feel like people want options. 00:00:45.300 —> 00:00:49.290 And it’s not like a — like, cut-and-dry thing. 00:00:49.290 —> 00:00:50.630 Right? You did it. 00:00:50.630 —> 00:00:51.950 You’re done. 00:00:51.950 —> 00:00:53.610 Let’s get some fresh blood in here. 00:00:53.610 —> 00:00:57.080 I would want someone younger who 00:00:57.080 —> 00:00:59.690 is less committed to the two-party system in the sense 00:00:59.690 —> 00:01:03.150 that I feel like people run based on party values and not 00:01:03.150 —> 00:01:04.410 individual values. 00:01:04.410 —> 00:01:05.800 We’re not getting younger voters. 00:01:05.800 —> 00:01:07.590 And so the older voters are kind 00:01:07.590 —> 00:01:10.120 of staying with who they know 00:01:10.120 —> 00:01:12.660 and what we’ve seen — you know, sometimes lesser of two 00:01:12.660 —> 00:01:13.540 evils. 00:01:13.540 —> 00:01:15.270 ”If the choice is Trump-Biden, 00:01:15.270 —> 00:01:18.020 you guys, 100 percent —“ ”Oh, 100 percent Trump. Yep.“ 00:01:18.020 —> 00:01:21.600 I would bite my tongue and go ahead and vote for Trump 00:01:21.600 —> 00:01:22.740 again. 00:01:22.740 —> 00:01:25.770 Would vote Biden again just for our two-party 00:01:25.770 —> 00:01:26.830 political system 00:01:26.830 —> 00:01:29.440 that kind of doesn’t give us very many options. 00:01:29.440 —> 00:01:31.810 So it’ll be interesting to see as we move forward, 00:01:31.810 —> 00:01:34.890 whether people do get more enthusiastic about 00:01:34.890 —> 00:01:37.980 their party’s nominee as we get closer to Election Day, 00:01:37.980 —> 00:01:42.060 or if we see a contest where turnout isn’t quite as high 00:01:42.060 —> 00:01:45.560 as we’ve been seeing in the past couple races.
