Democrats with a range of political perspectives have expressed reservations about endorsing President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris as the ideal Democratic presidential ticket for the 2024 election.
Increasingly Vocal About Their Concerns
Critics on the left have become increasingly vocal about their concerns regarding Biden’s advancing age, his frequent missteps, and Harris’ declining approval ratings.
They Shouldn’t Run for Re-Election
In a recent op-ed for The Washington Post, David Ignatius voiced his reservations, stating, “I don’t think Biden and Vice President Harris should run for reelection.”
Biden is Too Old
He pointed out that Biden would be 82 years old at the start of a potential second term.
‘It’s Painful to Say That’
Ignatius went on to say, “It’s painful to say that, given my admiration for much of what they have accomplished.
But if he and Harris campaign together in 2024, I think Biden risks undoing his greatest achievement — which was stopping [former President] Trump.”
Other Candidates Would Have a Better Chance
Representative Dean Phillips of Minnesota also expressed doubts, telling NBC News that other candidates have a better chance of winning without the age-related concerns associated with the current president.
People Aren’t Considering the Implications
He questioned why people seem to be moving forward without fully considering the implications, saying, “Why does everyone have blinders on?
Why are we essentially being led to this cliff without knowing what’s on the other side?”
They Need to Energize Voter Enthusiasm
Donna Brazile, former chair of the Democratic National Committee, discussed Biden’s age issue over the weekend, emphasizing the need for Democrats to act as if they are trailing by “10 points” to energize voter enthusiasm.
Younger Voters Are Concerned Over Age
She expressed concern about younger voters questioning Biden’s age and urged Democrats to make a compelling case for their candidate.
Most Democrats Question Biden
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough revealed that every Democrat he has spoken to acknowledges concerns about Biden’s age.
It’s in Every Discussion
He stated, “When I say every discussion, I don’t mean 99% of the discussion — every discussion.”
The White House Defends His Age
The White House has consistently defended Biden’s age and cognitive abilities when questioned by the media.
They Emphasize His Wisdom
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre emphasized Biden’s wisdom, experience, and historic accomplishments in response to questions about voter concerns regarding his age.
77% of Responders Say He’s Too Old
A recent poll by The Associated Press found that 77% of respondents believe Biden may be too old to effectively serve another four years.
Everyone Else Does Too
This was shared by 89% of Republicans and 69% of Democrats.
