According to reports, President Biden has not yet announced his intention to run for reelection in 2024. He is not yet ready to do so.
The Democrat discussed the White House Easter egg roll as a guest on NBC’s “Today” program with Al Roker.
He said he intended to run, but he’s not ready to make the announcement just yet.
Roker had asked the president whether he planned to vote in the forthcoming election, and this was his answer. Biden quipped that he had at least four more Easter egg rolls at the White House.
The president, who is 80 years old, has been hinting about a second bid for office for months. However, he has made no formal announcements.
Biden would turn 82 at the beginning of a second term as president.
According to a recent national survey by Monmouth University, almost half of Democrats (44%) would rather see President Biden not run for another term in 2024 and let another person be the party’s standard bearer.
However, the study reveals that Democrats are split on who should succeed Biden as the party’s presidential contender and that the president has just around two-thirds of his party’s members’ support.
In the survey, 44% of Democrats would want to see Biden stand down so that someone else may run in 2024, while 25% would like to see Biden run for reelection, and 30% have no opinion.
Democrats are split on who should follow Biden in 2024, even though a majority of them say they’d like a different candidate to run, according to the Monmouth survey.
Reports show that Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a prominent anti-vaccine campaigner and environmentalist, formally launched his 2024 presidential campaign on Wednesday by filing papers with the Federal Election Commission (FCC).
Kennedy’s father was Robert F. Kennedy, who ran for president of the United States in 1968 but was assassinated by Sirhan Sirhan while campaigning.
Kennedy Jr. registered to run as a Democrat against President Biden in 2024, joining self-help expert Marianne Williamson as the other notable candidate in the party.
