Joe Biden Stops Short of Committing To Another Presidential Run
(RepublicanPress.org) – As the United States moves toward the midterm elections in November, many people are starting to look toward 2024. There are rumors that former President Donald Trump or Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) will run on the Republican ticket, but those assumptions are not as of yet confirmed. However, President Joe Biden has indicated he intends to go for a second term in the Oval Office for the Democrats.
On September 18, the US leader confirmed his “intention” to run for re-election, but stopped short of declaring a commitment to running again. He said he hasn’t made a “firm decision” yet. During an appearance on “60 Minutes,” Biden told host Scott Pelley several election laws would come into play with a campaign confirmation. He’s not prepared to take what he aims to do to that level quite yet. For now, the president simply plans to continue running the country.
According to data accumulated by FiveThirtyEight, Biden’s popularity has dropped since he took office in January 2021. He started with an approval rating of 53% soon after swearing in, but that number steadily fell to an all-time low of 37.5% in July 2022. The polls currently sit around 42.6%, giving him less than a majority and uncertainty about another successful run for the White House in a little over two years.
During his interview, Biden said he wants to wait until after the midterms and into next year before “making a judgment on what to do.”
