Washington’s worst kept secret is the assumption, correct or not, that President Joe Biden will not seek reelection in 2024. Apparently, the majority of the American public was let in on the secret, too. According to new polling released by Quinnipiac University, a majority of Americans, 54 percent, believe Biden will not run for president again.

At 78 years old, President Biden was already the oldest person ever to be elected President. If he were to run again and win, he would be 82 at the time of his second inauguration. According to findings in the same Quinnipiac poll, nearly half of Americans, 48 percent, believe it’s bad for the country if Biden runs for president in 2024, while only 37 percent believe it would be good for the country if Biden ran again.

Biden himself seems uncertain if he will run – or if he will physically be able to. At his first news conference as president back in March, Biden said he planned to seek reelection in 2024. “My plan is to run for reelection. That’s my expectation,” Biden told reporters at the time. However, he later followed up and clarified that his decision was not set in stone when a reporter pressed him to answer more definitively on his reelection plans. “I said, ‘that is my expectation’… I’m a great respecter of fate. I’ve never been able to plan four-and-a-half, three-and-a-half years ahead for certain.”

While it is not exactly clear what Biden means when he says he “respects fate,” his statements nonetheless highlight the uncertainty of his political future. If Biden ultimately opts not to seek reelection as so many assume, he will be the first president since Lyndon Johnson to voluntarily become a one-term president.

But Biden has surprised people before. By conventional wisdom, he was never supposed to be in this position to begin with. After two disastrous past presidential runs in 1988 and 2008 and declining to run in 2016, insiders assumed that Joe Biden’s political career was dead.

Even when Biden ran in 2020, it was widely assumed he would not win, as his campaign repeatedly look dead. Normally, a former Vice President might be expected to discourage most challengers from entering the race. But nearly 30 other Democrat candidates ran to oppose Biden. Even the President he had served loyally under for 8 years in the White House tried to convince him multiple times not to run. “You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t,” Obama reportedly told Biden in the spring of 2019 before he announced.

Biden went on to get shellacked in the Iowa caucuses in a horrible fourth place finish. He slipped further in New Hampshire when he came in a shocking fifth place. And after suffering a runner-up finish to Bernie Sanders in Nevada, it looked like his campaign was over. That was until the Democrat political machine went into full panic mode and realized that socialist Bernie Sanders was about to be on a runaway train to the party’s nomination if they didn’t step in and stop him.

The rest is history. Biden won the next primary in South Carolina thanks to strong support among African-American voters and a key endorsement from his old friend Jim Clyburn, and then all of the pieces fell into place—just barely. Nearly every Democrat candidate in the race subsequently ended their campaigns and endorsed Biden to deny Bernie Sanders the nomination – the plan apparently worked just like the Democrat party establishment drew it up.

Of course, Biden would eventually go on to become president, although the election remains a fraught issue to this day. 42,918 votes spread across the battleground states of Wisconsin, Arizona, and Georgia were the difference between Electoral College victory and defeat for Joe Biden in the official tally. For comparison, Biden’s 2020 vote margin is smaller than the 77,774 votes spread across Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan in 2016 that propelled Donald Trump to the White House four years earlier.

The reality is that despite a once-in-a-generation pandemic that shut off the world’s strongest economy, widespread protests and riots spurred on by left-wing activists not seen in a generation, and the unprecedented advocacy of the mainstream media and Big Tech reporting outright lies to help defeat the incumbent president, Joe Biden officially still only managed to eek out one of the closest victories in the history of the American presidency – not to mention Democrats lost seats in the House and only secured a 50-50 split in the Senate. That means Biden was sworn in not with a clear mandate, but by way of a very ambivalent electorate and in a clear position of vulnerability.

Nevertheless, President Biden has proceeded to ignore the warning signs over his first eight months in office and has governed more radically than any administration in recent history. The political consequences for President Biden’s defiance of voters’ wishes are beginning to emerge.

Last week marked President Biden’s lowest approval rating of his presidency in the RealClearPolitics average. Trillions of dollars in new spending has given way to rising inflation, which threatens the economic stability of American families. A complete reversal of the Trump administration’s immigration policies has resulted in an open southern border and a catastrophic migration crisis. According to Customs and Border Protection figures released last month, Border Patrol agents have made more than a million arrests at the U.S.-Mexico border so far this year, surpassing any full-year total going back to at least 2005. And despite being handed three vaccines by his predecessor to massively aid him in accomplishing his promise to “defeat the virus,” it now appears America is regressing with regard to the COVID pandemic. Mask mandates are being imposed again across the country, and what was supposed to be a historic economic recovery is in jeopardy.

If Biden continues to pursue the radical left’s unpopular agenda and history repeats itself with devastating midterm losses for his party in Congress, don’t be surprised if the President takes an exit ramp ahead of 2024. After all, most Americans already expect it.

Well now, not until the final sentence in this article does it state what in all actuality will have to happen… Biden taking an exit before 2024 needs to be clarified however…Biden should be gone anywhere between now & Oct. at the latest…The audits are complete in AZ, time to release them & get it over with… The entire nation & the world over already know the results. MASSIVE ELECTION FRAUD… Georgia will be worse followed by PA, WI, MI & NV & not necessarily in that order…
The nation is in a State of Emergency in real time, every American citizen sees it, MSM & Big Tech know this, yet they still REFUSE to report what is really happening to this nation…
America has been under attack by a foreign adversary since the 2018 midterms & in truth it goes further back than that… The Trump 2018 Executive order was written & signed into LAW on the US Presidential Election Law with respect to the Domestic & Foreign US Election Interference… The genie is out of the bottle here & believe a massive global sting operation has been ongoing out of public purview with arrests for quite some time now…We have a strong military that believes in the Constitution & We The People will prevail after all is said & done. Keep the faith… I have no room in my heart for defeatist people in our hour of need…

There’s a whole sea of Americans a wash, floating neither for or against but will not ever support Trump again. We voted for him, we supported him, and he embarrassed us beyond repair. We’ve moved on. He may not have lost, we’ll never know but it’s over, done. Give us a candidate that supports America, Truth, Justice and the American way. There are people out there that aren’t perfect but try to do the right thing, don’t have to hide their taxes and may have had a “normal” life. A veteran. An American first and a politician 5th. Find that person, give us reason to support them and maybe, just maybe all of us who walked away may walk back. And by the way, you can’t win without us….

Joe is only in the WH because they cheated. He was not elected by We the People. He is nothing but a lying con-man with dementia. The faster we impeach him the better. I’m tired of playing the “cutesy” game. We Conservatives need to start playing hard ball and stand up for ourselves…or it’ll be too late.

I am a right-leaning moderate and voted against Biden back in 2020. I do not think he is a good President at all. That said, I must say it scares me a little that in 2024 Democrats will nominate somebody who is even more left leaning. And they can win.

You see, it is really easy to promise people free money and get their votes. The 2020 election already gave us a taste of that – Democrats won in large part because they were a great deal more eager to send checks to the struggling families. The same trick can be repeated practically endlessly as we have a larger and larger segment of population that has become used to such handouts.

I guess on a personal note I will be buying more solid stocks and bitcoin to preserve my meager wealth. But then who knows, maybe Democrats will introduce a wealth tax, a bachelor tax, and a bitcoin ban down the line. So if you think Biden is bad, the next Democrat President can be a great deal worse for a capitalist.

Who are the people that think he will run again? He was in the basement for most of that last campaign, can’t answer basic questions, even when the teleprompter tells him what to say. The 25th Amendment is coming, Joe, that was the plan all along.

Quinnipiac poles are skewed at best. The results are influenced by the College Educators then passed on to many students with no opportunity for competition. The teachers at college’s have done away with Conservative thinking and they are pushing towards Communism!
Another area that puzzles me is what States or methodology was used to obtain these results. I DONT KNOW ANYONE WHO VOTED FOR BIDEN I DONT KNOW ANYONE WHO SUPPORTS PELOSI AND SCHUMERS AGENDA BECAUSE IT SURE ISNT BIDEN CALLING THE SHOTS!
Joe Biden is in Advanced stage Dementia! Yes it’s that obvious! IMPEACH BIDEN!

Biden is incompetent, the southern border is a disaster, drugs pouring in as fast as illegal aliens, cities going to hell, all the squak box does is fuel hate and division between parties groups or factions. this country has truly went backwards. It is unfortunate and horribly sad that people hated Trump so much that they elected a socialist communist President. The folks that voted for Biden are as much to blame as Biden himself for the bull

He is a mentally incompetent buffoon now and also an illegal president who used voter fraud and Chinese help with Dominion machines to flip votes. You cannot tell me that this imbecile won the election….he stayed in his basement, could not fill up a parking lot or a high school gym with people and he somehow won this election when thousands of people showed up to support President Trump? He did no campaigning because the fix was in. He should be removed along with Harris and anyone in on this treasonious act need to be in GITMO awaiting trial and if found guilty hung.

I feel that the original plan was to have Biden bow out in the first year and have Harris take over. That way, he could make the worst new rules and she could take over and then run again, claiming the failed stuff was Joe’s fault.

However, she turned out to be so dislikable (as we in CA already knew) that the Dems are doing everything possible to keep him propped up (not unlike Weekend At Bernie’s) to make it through to the next election. They’ll worry about who will run in 2024 when the time comes, it’s their M.O.

America needs a lesson in “Waking up.” Not “woke.” That is sleep walking gibberish. Really “waking up” and learn why and how this country was founded and what principles and ideas guided the founders. It was not the 1619 project, Black Lives Matter, or Antifa or Karl Marx or Saul Alinskey. Arise out of your ignorant stupor.

Biden did NOT “win” the election. There are not enough American voters who are so STUPID as to cast a vote for anyone who is as clearly “mentally impaired” as Biden is. Hillary lost the 2016 election because the Dems’ plan to steal it failed.
They then spent the next 4 years obstructing a duly elected president and ‘perfecting’ their methods in stealing the 2020 election.
I will be convinced otherwise ONLY if it comes from God’s lips to my ears.

I strongly suspect Biden won’t even last as a one term president. Many is the time when he’s not remotely lucid, he has sexual harassment and worse allegations hanging around his neck like an albatross, he continually supports positions that are not even remotely “for the good of the overall country”, and at 78 years of age he could even die in office.

Biden will take the exit ramp after the midterms when Republicans take over Congress decisively. He will not want to face all the congressional investigations of his family’s corruption. Not only is he the most inept president in history but also the most corrupt.

As bad as Biden is, and as unlikely as it is that he will be mentally and physically fit to finish his first term, it will be much worse if (or when) Harris takes over. Americans need to take the possibility of a Harris administration seriously and vote to remove all liberal/socialist/ America hating democrats out of office in the midterm elections. The only way to derail the progressive socialist agenda is to return control of the house and Senate to Republicans.If the midterms do not result in that happening, then Americans need to make preparations to to be able to survive America’s greatest political crises. SOMETHING TO SERIOUSLY THINK ABOUT !!!!
