Would Joe Biden Resign? Some Democrats are Hopping Mad over This Latest Scandal: It seems like every day, Joe Biden’s team of lawyers finds more and more classified documents that somehow made went from secure locations in the Obama administration into a Biden home or near his coveted Corvette.

While I highly doubt it was Joe Biden who was taking all of these documents out on ‘loan’ – I guess that staffers took them out for whatever reason – Biden does seem like he has a full-blown crisis on his hands at a time when he should be thinking about his state of the union speech and eventual run in 2024.
Now, instead of planning for the future, Joe Biden is once again stuck trying to defend the past.
So what happens now?
As I like to do, I did my best to poll the DC political community to get a sense of what elites and others in circles of power are thinking.
I was surprised to get quite a few diverse reactions – all on the weekend, no less.
Joe Biden: Time to Resign?
“Honestly, how stupid could Joe Biden and his staffers be? This is looking Donald Trump-level bad,” explained one Democratic Party pollster who worked for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.
“Biden and his team had no business taking out of the White House or wherever any sort of classified documents.
Now Biden will have to spend the next year playing defense on this issue and losing traction. He just handed whoever runs against in 2024 – Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis – a great weapon to use against him. This is just one of those errors that makes you sick. Joe Biden is smarter than this and knows better.
Even if it was a staffer or staffers that made the mistake, he owns it.”
Another Democratic Party official, one who served in senior leadership posts in the DNC just a few years ago, was pretty hot and upset. “Why would Joe Biden ever do this considering his supposed vast national security experience? What a disaster.
Considering how so many people call out his clear aging right in front of our eyes and how he is not even the man he was back in 2020, it might be time to consider heading into retirement. This classified documents stupidity makes me think he should just consider resigning.”
I know that seems extreme, but his approval ratings are dropping, the economy is in bad shape and looks to be getting worse with layoffs spiking, and he could face a GOP now emboldened. I don’t think he will resign, but he clearly has a severe problem he can’t solve that will suck up a lot of time. Maybe it is time for Kamala Harris 2024?”
This is going to get very intense. Stay tuned…
