The American people have spoken, and the message is clear: Joe Biden is past his prime and should step aside. A shocking new poll conducted by DailyMail.com/Tipp has revealed that a staggering 67% of registered voters believe that the 80-year-old president is not mentally or physically up to the task of serving a second term. Even within his own party, support for Biden’s re-election bid is lukewarm at best, with only a third of Democrats believing that he should run in 2024.
This is not just a matter of political opinion; it’s a question of Biden’s fitness for office. As we’ve seen over the past two years, Biden has become a maestro of gaffes and falls, stumbling over his words and tripping up on stairs. His cognitive decline is no secret, and it’s time for the American people to face the truth: Joe Biden is simply too old for the job.
To make matters worse, Biden is already facing challengers within his own party. Marianne Williamson, the self-help guru, and Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the notorious anti-vaxxer, are both vying for the Democratic nomination. While it’s unlikely that either of them will pose a serious threat to Biden’s campaign, their very presence is a troubling sign of the state of the Democratic Party.
If Biden wants to retain any hope of winning in 2024, he’ll have to fend off a new generation of Democratic contenders. The list of potential successors is long and growing, with names like Gavin Newsom, Gretchen Whitmer, Kamala Harris, and Pete Buttigieg all being touted as the future faces of the party. These are younger, more energetic politicians who can appeal to a broader swath of the electorate, not just the die-hard Democratic faithful.
Of course, Biden himself is well aware of the age question, and he’s been doing his best to downplay concerns about his energy levels and sharpness. But the reality is that he’s the oldest president in American history, and every day that goes by is a reminder of his advancing years.
In fact, according to the DailyMail.com/Tipp poll, a whopping three-quarters of voters want to see Biden in a TV debate with Williamson and Kennedy. This is an epic showdown that could make or break Biden’s campaign, and it’s one that the Democratic National Committee needs to take seriously.
The stakes couldn’t be higher in the 2024 race, and the American people deserve a president who is up to the task. As things stand, it’s clear that Joe Biden is not that person. It’s time for him to step aside and make way for a new generation of leaders who can take America forward.
