The speculation surrounding the 2024 election may very well have surpassed that of the 2022 midterms, on account of both its urgency and its grandiosity, and with several months still to go in the penultimate aforementioned contest.
But that, according to an abysmal survey, seems to be precisely the worry in this day and age.
President Joe Biden told the Rev. Al Sharpton that he will seek a second term in a private conversation at the White House last month, Sharpton informed his National Action Network staff in Washington later that day.
The President seemed Certain.
“I’m going to do it again,” Biden said as he posed for a photograph in the Roosevelt Room with Sharpton, who is also an MSNBC host, according to an official of Sharpton’s National Action Network who recounted Sharpton’s description. “I’m going.”
While Biden allies have said he will seek re-election, he has shied away from declaring it unequivocally, at least in part to avoid triggering campaign finance reporting laws. His remarks to Sharpton at the tail end of a meeting with the leaders of several of the country’s most prominent civil rights organizations represent a stronger assertion that he will be on the ballot again.
The Democrats had better make a decoration soon about Joe Biden, lest they wisih to be embarrassed in 2024.
