Last Minute Effort from the Left to Stop Biden from Running in 2024 – Watch
As the 2024 presidential election draws closer, a last-minute attempt to stop President Joe Biden from running is underway. A number of left-wing networks are reportedly pressuring Biden to step aside, citing his age, declining mental acuity, and record of failed policies.
The networks, which include MSNBC, CNN, and The New York Times, have been critical of Biden in recent months. They have pointed to his gaffes and misstatements, as well as his handling of the withdrawal from Afghanistan and the ongoing inflation crisis.
This weekend CNN led the way, touting numbers showing the president in a deep deficit when it comes to public opinion about him and his job performance. NBC News did the same song and dance, promoting their own poll numbers showing that most Democrats do not want him to run again.
Then there was ABC News, which pulled no punches and went right at the heart of Biden’s biggest weakness: The fact that he’s old and senile.
The pressure from the left-wing networks is unlikely to have any immediate impact on Biden’s decision to run for re-election. However, it could put pressure on Biden and his allies to address the concerns raised by the networks.
If Biden does decide to run for re-election, he will face a number of challenges. His approval ratings are low, and he is facing a number of scandals, including the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan and the ongoing investigation into his son Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine.
In addition to the pressure from the networks, there are a number of other factors that could contribute to Biden’s decision not to run for re-election. For example, he could be facing pressure from within his own party to step aside. Some Democrats believe that Biden is too old and too damaged to be re-elected, and they may prefer to run a younger candidate in 2024.
