A new Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey shows 38 percent of likely voters say if a candidate was endorsed by President Barack Obama that would make them more likely to vote for that individual. Forty percent said Obama’s endorsement would make them less likely to vote for that candidate.

Obama’s continued popularity overshadows President Joe Biden’s. If Biden endorsed a candidate, just 28 percent said they’d be more likely to vote for that individual. Forty-six percent said they’d be less likely.

As for President Donald J. Trump, his endorsement would lead 35 percent of voters to be more likely to vote for a candidate and 40 percent less likely.

Biden’s endorsement would only make 51 percent of Democrats more likely to vote for a candidate.
