Considering all the disasters to occur less than two whole years into Biden’s presidency, it’s very hard to imagine what the basis of any 2024 reelection campaign may be.
In 2020, Biden ran on restoring America’s soul, bringing back decency to politics, and ending division.
The president hasn’t lived up to even one of these things; however, he’s certainly managed to make a mess of our southern border, economy, crime rates, and a host of other issues.
All of this would work against Biden if he went through with plans to pursue reelection. In a recent interview with 60 Minutes, however, the president gave himself an escape route from seeking another term in office, as reported by Washington Examiner.
Biden on the Possibility of Running For Another Term
Previously, Biden and his White House have definitively stated he’s going to run for reelection. Though during his 60 Minutes interview, the president walked this back a little.
Instead, Biden declared he would review the midterms before deciding whether or not to seek a second term. The president then noted that while running for office again is his “intention,” it is definitely not a “firm decision.”
“My intention, as I said to begin with, is that I would run again. But it’s just an intention. But is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen,” President Biden tells Scott Pelley on whether he will run in 2024. https://t.co/yxmSENk4KK pic.twitter.com/mcTIRtkUBi

Biden likewise told 60 Minutes that he’s a huge advocate of “fate” and his focus continues to be on doing his job. Unfortunately, Biden doing his job thus far is wreaking havoc in the lives of everyday Americans.
This is a huge factor in the midterm races currently playing out and it won’t be something Biden can escape in 2024, unless he chooses not to run for another stint in office.
The Case For a Different Candidate
In a recent Meet the Press interview, Joe O’Dea, a Colorado Republican running for Senate, expressed that Biden shouldn’t seek reelection and neither should Trump.
Rep. Tim Ryan, an Ohio Democrat seeking reelection, has likewise stated that both political parties could benefit from a new generation of leadership.
Biden on @60Minutes on 2024:
– Reelection is "intention."
– "But is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen."
– "It's much too early.
– Biden says he's "a great respecter of fate."

The laundry list of reasons for Biden not to run has been widely acknowledged by politicians on both sides of the aisle. Many Americans likewise are raising issues about Biden’s age.
Already, Biden exhibited behaviors that demonstrate he’s not as clear or sharp mentally as he used to be. Yet, if he were to go for another term in office, Biden would be 82 years old (thereby subject to even more mental decline) amid running.
There are many other younger candidates who can run for the White House in 2024. It remains to be seen exactly how this election plays out.
Do you believe Joe Biden is setting the stage not to run for a second term after all? In the comments area, you’re more than welcome to share your thoughts about 2024 and whether or not Biden should seek reelection.
