The Democrat-allied New York Times published a damning article Saturday calling into question President Biden’s 2024 “political viability” as the nation is “completely falling apart.”
The Times spent the majority of 2020 supporting and aiding Biden’s chances of defeating Donald Trump. Now, the Times has issued a stark warning about Biden’s “age” and his ability to fight back against former President Donald J. Trump.
The paper, which was based on old age and lack of excitement and’regret und anxiety’, outlined Democrats’ concerns about Biden running again for president, but this time with a poor track record. The Times pointed out numerous failures of the president, including 40-year-high inflation and record-high gas prices. They also cited multiple losses in culture wars such as abortion and the stalled far-left proposals in the Build Back Better package.
The Times stated that interviews with close to 50 Democratic officials (from county leaders to members Congress) revealed that the party was alarmed at Republicans’ growing strength and extremely pessimistic about a path forward. “As the nation faces increasing challenges and tired base voters show low enthusiasm Democrats in union meetings and back rooms on Capitol Hill, as well as party gatherings across the country, are quietly worried about Mr. Biden’s leadership, age, and capability.”
Steve Simeonidis, a member of the Democratic National Committee, told the Times that the nation is not on a right track. As a result, Biden shouldn’t seek the nomination for 2024.
According to a Democrat congressional candidate, Democrats are confused about the country’s future. She also pointed out the lack of enthusiasm among Democrats heading into 2022’s midterms when Republicans are expected win the House.
Despite this, Democrats are not in agreement on who could replace Biden as the leader of the Democrat Party. The Times listed many names, but each one lost to Biden during the 2020 Democrat primaries.
Biden has said he will run for president in 2024. Perhaps because it would decrease his political capital. However, Biden’s current political capital is in poor shape. Only 73% of Democrats are satisfied with Biden’s job performance. According to the Times’ recent polling, only 48 percent want Biden running for office in 2024.
