Biden needs to give up running, it’s urgent!

In The Washington Post Yesterday, guest columnist Steven Eisenberg said that Biden should soon announce that he will not run again. Yes, pressing. In my opinion, announcing his retirement is the only way to save his party from disaster in the November mid-term elections.

At 79, he is already the oldest president in US history. Among Democrats (out of pity for Biden?), we dare not mention it publicly. His age will no doubt be used by Republicans this fall. This has caused great concern among the surveyed voters.

No one wants that for 2024: Democratic or independent voters, or his party’s elected officials. A study The New York TimesSiena College reveals that 64% of Democrats want someone other than him to run in 2024: 33% of them say it’s because of his age, and 32% are dissatisfied with the way he’s performing. Among Democrats under 30, 94% prefer a candidate other than Biden.

If he decides to run again, the referendum The New York Times Still indicating the fight will be tight: Biden 44%, against Trump 41%. Such a difference does not guarantee his electoral victory.

Distrust of the American electorate

Three-quarters of American voters are very pessimistic about their country’s future. It includes people of all ages, all ethnic or racial origins, rural and urban. America is going through a dark period in its history. The rise of the neo-fascist Trumpian right threatens the very foundations of their democracy.

With the announcement that he won’t seek re-election, Biden and Democrats can focus between now and the midterm elections on the need to win enough majorities in both chambers to complete their plan. Remaining two years.

Political hell for the Democrats

One can only imagine the political hell Democrats will be thrown into during Biden’s last two years in office, with Republican majorities in the House and Senate. Expect a flurry of investigative commissions on anything and everything involving Democrats.

Through no fault of Biden’s, he was unable to implement many of his plans. The pandemic, the war in Ukraine and its global economic consequences worked against him. It has a lot to do with useless Democratic senators Manchin and Cinema.

On the positive side of his presidency, we should be infinitely grateful to Biden for narrowly succeeding in ousting the notorious Trump from the White House, who tried to stay in power by all means, including rebellion. He also strongly opposed China and Russia. His support for Ukraine is exemplary enough to be admired by Republicans.
