Joe Biden just learned a stunning truth about what Democrats think about him running in 2024

Joe Biden says in public and in private that he is running for re-election.

But not many in Washington actually believe that to be the case.

And now Joe Biden just learned a stunning truth about what Democrats think about him running in 2024.

In a New York Times article about Joe Biden’s future, prominent Democrats went on the record to express their misgivings about him seeking a second term.

Former Barack Obama chief strategist David Axelrod worried Joe Biden would be too old to realistically assure the public he could serve two terms as President.

“The Presidency is a monstrously taxing job and the stark reality is the President would be closer to 90 than 80 at the end of a second term, and that would be a major issue,” Axelrod told the Times.

The day after the Times published that article, New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sent a shockwave through Washington, D.C. and the Democrat Party by refusing to endorse Joe Biden for re-election when asked by CNN’s Dana Bash if she would commit to supporting him in 2024.

To measure the level of support among Democrats for Biden’s re-election, the Daily Caller contacted the offices of all 50 Senate Democrats and asked if they would endorse Biden’s re-election campaign.

Just five Senators responded they would go on the record and endorse Biden in 2024.

The Daily Caller reports:

The Daily Caller contacted all 50 Senate Democrats repeatedly and asked if they would support President Joe Biden in his 2024 presidential bid. Five Senators said “Yes.”

A spokesperson for Senate Majority Leader and Democratic New York Sen. Chuck Schumer responded to the Daily Caller with a one-word answer: “Yes.”

Spokespeople for Democratic Sens. Tim Kaine of Virginia and Jack Reed of Rhode Island responded in the same way: “Yes.”

Democratic New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker’s spokesperson also said the senator would endorse Biden, noting, “Yes, Senator Booker supports President Biden for re-election should he run again in 2024.”

Joe Biden’s approval rating sunk to 39 percent in the Real Clear Politics polling average.

And as Axelrod mentioned, Biden would be 86-years-old at the end of a second term.

Biden’s lousy poll numbers, failures on domestic and foreign policy, and his cognitive decline have Democrats worried that he cannot defeat Donald Trump or any other Republican in 2024.

And Democrats want to preserve their ability to pressure Biden not to run for re-election by holding off on endorsing him in 2024.
