Can Biden Make it to 2024, and Do the Democrats Want Him to Run Again? Despite calling himself a “transitional candidate” during the 2020 presidential race, which was interpreted by many as a commitment to step aside for his running mate before the end of his first term, President Joe Biden has said that he plans to run again in 2024.

During an interview in December, President Biden also suggested that former President Donald Trump entering the race would increase the chances of him running again.

Answering questions about whether he would run again, President Biden told ABC News anchor David Muir, “yes – but look, I’m a greater respecter of fate. Fate has intervened in my life many, many times.”

“If I’m in the health I’m in now, if I’m in good health, then in fact, I would run again,” he said.

With a poor showing in the polls over the last year, however, the question of whether the president really plans to run again is being asked more and more.

Will President Joe Biden make another run for president in 2024, or might he bow out and make way for someone younger?

Polls Don’t Look Good for Joe Biden

If President Biden intends to run again in 2024, he’ll need to improve his showing in the polls not just to ensure he retains his party’s nomination but also to give him a shot at winning in the presidential election.

Polls continue to show the president with minority support among the American public, with Pew Research Center showing only 41% of Americans approving of the job he is doing. 56%, meanwhile, disapprove of the job he’s doing.

Another poll from Redfield & Wilton Strategies published last month showed only 39% of Americans pledging to vote for President Joe Biden in 2024, compared to 44% who said that they would vote for former President Donald Trump.

In a hypothetical matchup between the two candidates, a poll by Emerson College showed Trump beating Biden with 45% support to his 43%.

Following the Democrats’ loss in the Virginia gubernatorial race in 2021, President Biden’s odds of winning in the 2024 presidential elections dropped substantially. BetOnline reported that his odds fell from 7-2 to 4-1.

Already the oldest president in American history, Joe Biden will be 82 years old by the time he is sworn in for his second term. Critics already argue that the president is experiencing severe cognitive decline, meaning that not only will the president’s policies and performance come into play in 2024’s primary season but his age and overall health will, too.

    82-years-old would be the right age to visit an old folks home.

    Biden doesn’t possess the moral gumption to demonstrate real quality leadership as a US president expected at his level of advanced age or level of senior years. Forget 2024.

    Already, US troops are leaving for europe and some of those already there are moving closer to russia, exactly like what obama (then bright-eyed & bushy tailed) did in 2009 when he pompously announced his afghan troop surge. What later happened? Massive rise in afghan civilian deaths and increased numbers of soldiers returning home in wooden boxes.

    Though obama won in 2012 mainly because he was a snappy orator and had a swarm of admirers in india, china and australia. Biden? He’s nothing by comparison.

    Besides the previous comments, what exactly does he have to run on. He has not done anything he campaigned on and everything he does turns to crap.

    He’ll be dead long before that! Dementia is a rapidly declining condition.

    If I were Joe, I would be more concerned about staying alive for the next 3 years vs. thinking about working another 7 years. He’s way beyond retirement age and he already made $31 million dollar from China and other countries with Hunter’s shadey business dealings. What is the motivation unless someone like Obama wants to be the behind the scenes president.

    I really think Biden actually believes he’s pulling the strings, when it’s obvious that somebody behind the scenes is doing it. All he’s doing is what he’s told to do, and his cognitive abilities, which never was very sharp to begin with, have declined to the point that he don’t know the difference. It’s sad to see the “leader” of the once free world in that condition, and the so-called mainstream media not even question his ability. Of course, they knew what was happening when they got him elected. Shame of them.
