Joe Biden reportedly told Obama recently that he is definitely planning to run again in 2024.
Biden’s approval rating is currently in the 30’s and still dropping.
Democrats are headed for a massive loss in the 2022 midterms, partly because of Joe Biden’s disastrous presidency.
The Hill reports:
Biden has told Obama he’s running again
President Biden has told former President Obama that he is planning to run for reelection in 2024, two sources tell The Hill.
The admission to Obama is the latest indication that Biden is likely to run for a second term, something the president has spoken about publicly.
During a press conference in Brussels last month, he told reporters he’d be “very fortunate” to run against his rival in the 2020 election, former President Trump.
“[Biden] wants to run and he’s clearly letting everyone know,” said one of the two sources familiar with the conversations between Obama and Biden.
The source also said that Biden, despite his faltering approval ratings, remains the most likely Democratic candidate to defeat Trump. This was a key part of Biden’s salesmanship to voters as he sought support for this 2020 bid — and a big reason primary voters rallied to him in South Carolina and “Super Tuesday” states where he sealed his status as the Democratic frontrunner.
“I believe he thinks he’s the only one who can beat Trump. I don’t think he thinks there’s anyone in the Democratic party who can beat Trump and that’s the biggest factor,” the source familiar with the Obama-Biden talks said.
This is going to put Democrats in a very awkward position. What if they don’t want him to run?
Lol… this is why liberal media is now gearing up to attack Biden… they don’t want him on 2024 ticket, and honestly, I don’t think he even wins Dem primary https://t.co/UiqvcKtbeq

And I mean that honestly. He is simply not up to the task. https://t.co/Rb5PvYzF1G

Do Democrats think Joe Biden is going to be sharper two years from now?
