Few Democrats think Joe Biden will run for re-election.
But now all hell is breaking loose.
And that’s because Joe Biden gave this strange answer about running again in 2024.
Joe Biden claimed he planned to run for re-election in 2024.
But everyone understood Biden has to say that because should Biden say he is not running for a second term his presidency ends on the spot.
However, given that Biden is already in severe cognitive decline and would be 82 in 2024, few actually take Biden seriously when Biden claims he is running for re-election.
One data point insiders pointed to in thinking that Biden’s senility would make it impossible to run again is the fact that Biden only sat for 15 interviews as president.
Biden’s sinking poll numbers forced Biden’s handlers to adjust their strategy due to the fact that Biden lost control of the narrative surrounding his presidency even though the corporate media gladly supported Biden at every turn.
As Biden’s failures – particularly on COVID – piled up, Biden’s handlers agreed to an interview with friendly ABC News anchor David Muir.
One of Muir’s obvious questions was if Biden really intended to run for re-election in 2024.
“Yes,” Biden responded by issuing an odd qualifier that Biden could not guarantee he would be in good enough health to mount another presidential campaign.
“But look, I’m a great 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,” Biden added.
Muir asked Biden if Trump running for re-election would influence Biden’s 2024 decision.
Biden claimed Trump winning the GOP nomination would make it more likely Biden ran for a second term.
“You’re trying to tempt me now,” Biden stated.”Sure. Why would I not run against Donald Trump if he were the nominee? That’ll increase the prospect of running.”
But even this boast rang hollow.
The decision may not be up to Biden.
Democrats only supported Biden in 2020 in the belief Biden was the strongest candidate to take on Donald Trump.
There were several reports that Barack Obama never believed Biden could win and did not even want Biden to run.
Multiple polls show Trump leading Biden if the two squared off in 2024 with the latest being an American Greatness/Insider Advantage survey with Trump besting Biden by eight points.
If the polling data shows Biden likely to lose to Trump the entire Democrat Party – including former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton – would work behind the scenes to push Biden to bow out of the 2024 election so the party could pick a new nominee.
