Less than half of Democratic voters want Biden to run in 2024, CNN survey says

President Joe Biden and his White House might continue to insist that he’ll make another run for the White House in the 2024 presidential election, but not if Democratic voters have anything to say about it.

According to Fox News, according to a CNN survey — yes, you read that correctly — only 45% of Democratic voters and Democratic-leaning independents believe that Biden should be nominated to run again in 2024. 

Adding insult to injury, 51% of that same group said in the survey that they’d prefer a different candidate for the next presidential election. Only 5% indicated that as of now, they have no opinion on the subject.

“Of the Democratic-aligned voters who said they would like to see Biden replaced, 31% said it was because they didn’t want to see Biden re-elected, while 35% said they didn’t think he could win against Republicans,” Axios reported.

But will he run?

Though the 2024 election is a long way off, as America still has to get through the upcoming 2022 midterms in November, that hasn’t stopped speculation of who might become the face of the Democratic Party as the next presidential election inches closer.

That’s primarily due to just how ineffective and weak Biden has been in his first year in the White House, as his administration can’t seem to get a grasp on any of the major crises America currently faces, such as inflation, illegal immigration, and foreign policy.

On several occasions, Fox noted, Biden has insisted that he’ll run again, saying last March, “My answer is yes. I plan on running for reelection. That’s my expectation.”

However, as recently as December, during an ABC interview his confidence seemed to wane to some degree, replying to the same question by saying, “If I’m in the health I’m in now, if I’m in good health, then in fact, I would run again.”

Should he run again, Biden would be a ripe 82-years-old for his second inauguration, should he somehow win. Many have already speculated that his cognitive decline seems to worsen by the day, which casts heavy doubt on Biden being able to withstand the rigors of going through with yet another presidential campaign.

What about Kamala?

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is undoubtedly in a real pickle at the moment, as their savior, Vice President Kamala Harris, turned out to be a rather poor choice as Biden’s vice president, as her approval rating polls continue to indicate.

Some pundits have speculated that Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg could be a possible replacement for Harris on a 2024 ticket, should Biden choose to hang up his hat at that time.

The bottom line is that the Democratic Party will be in an absolutely stunning mess after the 2022 midterms, and who they choose to lead the party will be a make-or-break moment.
