Poll shows most Democrats don’t want Biden to run in 2024

Conservatives have long argued that President Joe Biden’s advancing age and obvious mental decline make him unfit for office.

Yet in a development that is sure to cause concern for the White House, a new report states that even most members of his own party don’t want him to seek another term. 

Ninety-four percent of Democrats under 30 want someone else

According to a poll conducted by Siena College and commissioned by The New York Times, a mere one out of every four Democrats would like to see Biden nominated again in 2024.

This figure drops to single digits among Democrats who are under 30 years of age, with 94% of them indicating that they would like to see someone else at the top of the ticket.

The two most common reasons for why Democrats would like Biden replaced are age and job performance, which were mentioned by 33% and 32% of respondents respectively.

Nicole Farrier is a preschool teacher in her 30s who comes from a small northern Michigan town, and she expressed frustration over the lack of younger leaders in her party.

“I’m just going to come out and say it: I want younger blood,” Farrier was quoted as telling the Times. “I am so tired of all old people running our country. I don’t want someone knocking on death’s door.”

New York Times correspondent makes note of Biden’s diminishing abilities

Times chief White House correspondent Peter Baker reiterated the concerns many have in an article published over the weekend.

“But the reality is that managing the schedule of the oldest president in American history presents distinct challenges,” Baker wrote.

“And as Mr. Biden insists he plans to run for a second term, his age has increasingly become an uncomfortable issue for him, his team and his party,” he continued.

Baker asserted that the president “often shuffles when he walks, and aides worry he will trip on a wire,” adding, “He stumbles over words during public events, and they hold their breath to see if he makes it to the end without a gaffe.”

The writer referenced an incident in which Biden addressed Virginia’s Democratic Sen. Mark Warner as “John,” apparently confusing the lawmaker with the late Virginia Sen. John Warner, a Republican.
