Report: Democrats Worried Biden Could Lose to a Younger Candidate in 2024

Some Democrats are concerned that a younger GOP candidate could be a threat to President Joe Biden in the 2024 election.

The issue was discussed in a recent CNN report that emphasized young Republican leaders like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

"Two unnamed Democratic operatives are 'uneasy' about the idea that Biden can pull a victory against DeSantis or another younger Republican, and another believes that Biden’s chances are 'not great,'" the Daily Caller reported.

"Four Democratic members of Congress, who asked to remain unnamed, believe that half of Democratic lawmakers would prefer a candidate other than Biden," it added.

The issue also comes as Biden recently celebrated his 80th birthday, making him the first president to do so while in office.

The growing fear also follows an Economist/YouGov poll conducted in October that showed that a majority of Democrats would not support Biden running for reelection in 2024.

The survey revealed that 26% were in favor of Biden running for reelection, with 52% opposed.

The concern is not new. A writer for the Atlantic noted in June that Biden will be too old to run again in 2024.

The writer, Mark Leibovich, urged Biden to step down for another candidate to run to give his party a chance at a win in the next election.

The nation remains politically divided, but even many Democrats now agree that Biden is simply not able to make it through a second term, encouraging him to bow out after one term.
