Top Biden donors quietly ‘nervous’ about president’s chances in ’24: Report

President Joe Biden, and his 81 million supposed voters, are presumably not exactly thrilled with how things are going, at least in the polls.

Over the past several weeks, a number of polls clearly revealed that Democratic voters want someone — virtually anyone — other than Biden to run for the presidency in 2024. According to an NBC News report, Biden’s donors — including his top-dollar supporters — are “nervous” over a possible Biden ’24 run.

Many mainstream media journalists have hammered top Democrats in Congress about whether or not they’ll support a second run for the White House by Biden, who would become the oldest president in history.

Most of those who are asked if they support Biden’s vow to run in 2024 have danced around the question, sometimes extremely awkwardly, as the party, and its top donors, quietly search for a viable replacement option.

“Very nervous”

In the report, which is rare in its own right, given that NBC News is typically Biden admin-friendly, references top donors and strategists who are far from excited about the possibility of Biden running again.

“Privately, I see a lot of donors being very nervous,” one veteran party fundraiser said. “There’s going to be a lot of pressure [for Biden to step aside] coming up post-midterms.”

Last month, a bombshell CNN poll revealed that some 75% of Democrats wanted someone other than Biden to run.

The results of such polls shouldn’t come as a surprise, as inflation is still in record-high territory. That’s being driven by sky-high gas and diesel prices, and lingering supply-chain issues from the pandemic.

The Trump factor

Even though top Dem fundraisers and players prefer a different candidate, it appears as if it could all hinge on whether or not former President Donald Trump tries for another term.

The school of thought is that even though Biden is a weak candidate for the party, he’s still the party’s best chance at a repeat of beating Trump.

However, that changes in a big way if someone like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) or another popular, young Republican candidate becomes the nominee for ’24.

The situation could once again change significantly after the November midterms, when Democrats are expected to suffer major losses in both chambers of Congress.
