President Biden has consistently been telling Democrats that he will be running for a second term, but there are still those who aren’t sure if he will go ahead with it.
Cedric Richmond, the former Democratic lawmaker and Biden White House official, said that not only is Biden planning on running but they are currently working on the infrastructure that will allow him to campaign successfully in 2024.
Still, with the upcoming midterm elections and the poll numbers being so tight, many Democrats have doubts about the overall approval rates of President Biden. Voter registration numbers though have increased in response to the Supreme Court’s overturning of abortion rights.
Many Democrats are also wondering whether if Biden will stick to his plan to run for a second term if the House is lost and only the Senate majority is retained.
Many are also questioning whether his age is going to stop him from considering a second term as Biden will turn 81 in November 2023. Questions regarding Biden’s potential opposition, with many speculations wanting former President Trump as the GOP nominee, will have effects on Biden’s ambitions as well.
Democrats are frequently debating the advantages and disadvantages of President Biden running for the Presidency again.
Vice President Harris has also said in a recent interview that Biden intends to run in the 2024 election. If Biden doesn’t run, Harris would be considered a top candidate.
