(PresidentialHill.com)- Sometimes the Atlantic runs articles that go against the grain. Democrats have been reluctant to endorse Joe Biden for president, but just days after the White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre confirmed the president’s intent to run for re-election, the Atlantic ran an article titled, “Why Biden Shouldn’t Run In 2024.”
The author, Mike Leibovich, reportedly cited declining poll numbers, his age, and an overall bad strategy for renominating Biden. Recently, even CNN’s Van Jones questioned the president’s age, nervous at the octogenarian’s constant stuttering, stammering, and stumbling.
Leibovich also cites the faltering poll numbers, claiming that a majority of voters do not want to vote for the president over fears that he is unfit. 62% of voters reportedly said that he is mentally unfit because of his age.
“Biden is by no means the more eloquent character he was in his younger days,” Leibovich wrote. “It can be painful to watch him give prepared speeches. His tone can be tentative, and certain sentences can become hopscotching journeys,” adding that the president’s aides look around nervously when he is speaking.
Perhaps this is why they’re constantly shooing reporters out of the room, lest the president answer questions and make a fool of himself.
Recently, just days after CNN questioned his mental fitness, Biden was videoed riding his bike, stopping to greet the few supporters waving to him before he caught his foot on the pedal and fell over in front of them all, hitting his head and back on the concrete.
At least Democrats are in unison over the dumpster fire that is the Biden presidency.
The Atlantic isn’t the only publication distancing themselves from a possible Biden re-election bid. Other outlets include Axios, the New York Times, FiveThirtyEight, and Vanity Fair, according to Breitbart News.
When speaking with Dana Bash on CNN, far-left squad member and democratic-socialist, Sandy Cortez, laughed awkwardly when asked whether she would endorse Biden for re-election in 2024. “We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it,” she said, adding that she is focused on securing a congressional majority.
Republicans currently hold the lead over Democrats in the polls, according to Rasmussen.
