President Joe Biden has assured voters that he plans to win the 2024 presidential election, despite criticisms about his age and speculation that he would not run.
During his Labor Day address in Philadelphia, President Biden acknowledged his age, saying a benefit of becoming older is the knowledge that comes with it. In addition, he noted that he’d been in politics longer than anybody else. The tone-deaf President doesn’t realize that the modern-day voter is not looking for an advanced-age politician. Diane Feinstein, Mitch McConnell, and even Nancy Pelosi have all been recently viewed as being well past their expiration dates.
The tone-deaf Biden said with the people’s support, he wants to keep doing it.
The remarks came after Biden biographer Franklin Foer, author of The Last Politician, said it wouldn’t be a complete shock if Biden dropped out of his reelection run due to his age during an appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday.
Biden, who is 80 years old, has offered no indication that he is contemplating withdrawing from the race. However, the President regularly uses the phrase “fate” when talking about his life, as noted by Foer.
A political science professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison was quoted in an article by USA Today as saying that he was worried that people would have a negative impression of Biden because of his age.
The president has made several blunders in recent public appearances, including confusing Ukraine with Iraq twice and misidentifying India’s prime minister as China’s prime minister. After falling during this summer’s U.S. Air Force graduation ceremonies, concerns about Biden’s health have intensified.
A Wall Street Journal survey shows that former president Donald Trump has a 26-point advantage over incumbent Joe Biden regarding the candidates’ ages.
Seventy-three percent of participants in the survey agreed that Biden is too old to run for president, with 66 percent of Democrats holding a similar view.
