Biden Says He’s Running For Reelection In 2024
President Joe Biden told former President Barack Obama that he does intend to run for reelection in 2024, according to two sources with knowledge of the conversation.
Biden went on to say that he views himself as the only person who could defeat former President Donald Trump if he runs in 2024.
Biden is the oldest U.S. president to ever serve and would be 82 at the beginning of a potential second term in 2025. After a speech in North Carolina Thursday, Biden turned away from the podium and extended his arm for a handshake even though no one was near him.
Biden’s approval rating plummeted to a new low of 33% in an April Quinnipiac poll.
“When you have three of four pollsters showing the lowest numbers for the President of the United States, that is indicative of a president who’s in a lot of trouble at least to where he has stood historically,” CNN senior data reporter Harry Enten said April 15.
“There was always this thing, ‘Oh, Donald Trump has the lowest approval rating at this point in his presidency.’ We did it over and over and over and over again. Well, at this point in his presidency, Donald Trump’s average approval rating is one point higher than Joe Biden’s,” Enten said.
