Biden Leaves Democrats In Tough Predicament

Biden’s standing was recently strengthened by the surprisingly good results in the midterm elections which allowed the Democratic party to keep control of the Senate while only losing a handful of seats in the House.

Outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) both recently said that President Biden should seek reelection.

At the same time, former President Trump is facing a number of controversies that are clouding his attempts to win back control of the White House. Trump is also facing trouble within the GOP as many are questioning the direction that the Republican party needs to take in order to win the 2024 presidential election.

Still, despite all of this not all Democrats are happy to see Biden running again.

According to a recent CNN poll, 59 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents would prefer to see a new candidate take the nomination in 2024.

Brad Bannon, a Democratic strategist noted that while Biden is well-positioned to be the 2024 nomination for the Democratic party, however, that does not mean that everyone in the party would like him to run again.

A similar CNBC poll found that around 57 percent of Democrats did not want Biden to launch another presidential campaign. This sentiment was also shared by 66 percent of independents.
