A number of Democrats are now openly saying they will not support President Biden for reelection in 2024 while others waffle over commitment, opting instead to seek “new leadership” as he turns 80 years old.

The list of those defecting from Biden’s camp seems to be growing by the day. Torn over the president’s advanced age and his massive unpopularity in the polls, Democrats are seriously questioning if he is the best candidate to run in 2024.
While Biden has insisted he will run for reelection in 2024, he has not made an official announcement concerning his plans to do so. Many believe he will not run due to his age and health, not to mention his poll numbers.
What's the biggest beatdown an incumbent president has taken in their reelection bid? Because Biden and the Dems want to annihilate that record.

Two Minnesota Democrats have bluntly stated they will not endorse Biden as the Democratic presidential nominee in 2024.
Rep. Dean Phillips recently responded to a town hall question regarding whether he would support the president for reelection. His response was a blunt “no.”
He reportedly believes that the country “would be well-served by a new generation of compelling, well-prepared, dynamic Democrats who step up.”
Joe Biden "wasn't my Democratic candidate of choice…I'd like to see who my options are," state Sen. Katie Muth (D., Montgomery) said to a Republican tracker in this video. Muth, one of the most outspoken Dems in the chamber, is up reelection this year. https://t.co/xCIpoF6GdE

Fellow Minnesotan Rep. Angie Craig was also asked about support for a Biden run in 2024 and stated that the Democratic Party needs a “new generation of leadership.”
“I’m going to do everything in my power as a member of Congress to make sure that we have a new generation of leadership,” she vowed.
“Many Minnesotans, myself included, are ready to see a new generation of leaders in the Democratic Party, and I will do everything in my power to help those new leaders up and down the ballot,” Craig said in a statement to Fox News.
“I remain immensely proud of the bipartisan work we’ve done in Congress and with President Biden to lower costs for working families, protect women’s reproductive rights and keep our communities safe, and I will continue to work with anyone who will help get results for Minnesota’s Second District,” she added.
No one is concerned that 75 percent of Dems don't want Biden to run for reelection?

Both Minnesota Representatives are seeking re-election in November’s midterms which potentially has a lot to do with the lack of support for Biden.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) declined to endorse Biden for reelection back in June. He’s evidently just not radical enough for the Democratic Socialist.
“We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it,” she stated on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“But I think if the president has a vision, and that’s something certainly we’re all willing to entertain and examine when the time comes,” she equivocated.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) is also apparently not on team Biden when it comes to reelection. He won’t commit to supporting the president for another bid.
“I”m not going, I’m not getting into 2022 or 2024,” Manchin said on ABC’s “This Week” in July when asked about a run in 2024 by Biden. “Whoever is my president, that’s my president. And Joe Biden is my president right now.”
Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) is sidestepping the issue as well.
“I don’t want to answer that question because we have not, that’s not, yeah, I don’t want to answer that question,” she said in July. “I mean, he’s the president, and he has the right to run for a second term, absolutely, but I don’t want to, I’d rather you not do that, ask that question.”

Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) also did a two-step when cornered on support for a Biden reelection.
“Too early to say. Doesn’t serve the purpose of the Democratic Party to deal with that until after the midterms,” he weaseled, according to The Hill.
