Joe Biden shied away from answering a question aimed at confirming whether he would run for the office of presidency again in 2024 during an interview released last week on “60 Minutes.”
“Look, my intention, as I said, to begin with is that I would run again,” he stated. “But it’s just an intention. But is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
Biden’s comments have drawn some confusion, based on previous remarks that seemed to clearly indicate that he plans to run again in 2024.
Last year, the Washington Post reported that Biden said, “Why would I not run against Donald Trump as the nominee? That would increase the prospect of running.”
Unfortunately for Biden, President Trump’s polling numbers have resoundingly creamed Biden’s numbers going into a hypothetical 2024 matchup. Even a recent Harris & Harvard Caps poll found that if the election were held today, Trump would still carry 45 percent of the vote among registered voters against Biden’s projected 42 percent.
However, among Independents, the same poll found that Trump would net a whopping 43 percent compared to Biden’s projected 35 percent. Additionally, Biden’s current job approval among Americans is dismal.
Fox News reported in a September poll that 69 percent of Americans disapproved of Biden’s job performance, while a Politico & Morning Consult Poll found that 59 percent disapproved. Even with the differences between polling groups and media outlets, Biden’s popularity with the American people has continually sunk lower since he took office in 2021.
Conservative Republicans have been particularly unhappy with Biden’s recent inflammatory attacks on and against the MAGA movement, who he again slammed during his interview on “60 Minutes.”
“MAGA Republicans are the people who refuse to acknowledge that an election took place and there was a winner,” he stated. “MAGA Republicans are those people who, in fact, say that the use of violence is a legitimate tool, like what happened to the Capitol.”
President Trump also leads Biden in five important battleground states heading into a 2024 matchup, projecting a “red wave” of victory in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, as previously reported by RSBN.
