David Axelrod Question About Joe Biden Goes Viral
The 2024 presidential race is already heating up, as concerns over President Joe Biden’s potential run for a second term continue to grow. On Sunday, CNN political analyst David Axelrod questioned whether it is wise for Biden to pursue another term, especially in light of the latest New York Times/Siena poll, which showed former President Donald Trump leading in multiple swing states.
Axelrod, who served as a senior advisor to former President Barack Obama, pointed out that it is “very late to change horses” and that Biden’s team has affirmed his commitment to running in 2024. However, he also noted that the “age arrow only points in one direction” and that Biden’s biggest liability is his age.
The latest Times/Siena poll, which surveyed voters in six key swing states, showed Trump leading Biden in five of them, including Arizona, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Michigan. This has sparked concern among many Democrats, who fear that Biden may not be able to defeat Trump if he were to run for re-election.
Other prominent figures, such as conservative commentator Bill Kristol, have also called for Biden to step down and pass the torch to the next generation of leaders. At 79 years old, Biden would be 86 at the end of his second term if he were to win.
It's very late to change horses; a lot will happen in the next year that no one can predict & Biden's team says his resolve to run is firm.
He's defied CW before but this will send tremors of doubt thru the party--not "bed-wetting," but legitimate concern. https://t.co/g6zeWF0T87

The growing concerns over Biden’s ability to defeat Trump in a potential 2024 rematch are only amplified by recent national polls, which also show Trump leading Biden. Independent voters, in particular, seem to be turning back to Trump, which could have major implications for future elections.
These concerns are not only coming from Democrats, as Trump himself has also been chiming in. Trump has accused Biden and his team of using “election interference” tactics against him, pointing to the ongoing civil fraud case in New York that Trump is set to testify in on Monday.
As the 2024 presidential race begins to take shape, the stakes of miscalculation for both Biden and the Democratic Party are extremely high. While some believe that Biden should continue to run and be the nominee for the party, others are questioning whether this is truly in his best interest or the country’s.
Regardless of Biden’s decision, it is clear that the 2024 presidential race is already shaping up to be highly competitive and intense. As Trump and other potential candidates begin to enter the field, the political landscape in America is once again becoming volatile, with both sides gearing up for a major showdown in the next election. While it remains to be seen who will come out on top, one thing is for certain: the next presidential race will be a battle that will have major consequences for the country’s future.
