As the country continues to face mounting challenges, Americans are increasingly concerned about Joe Biden’s ability to lead. At 80 years old, the president is showing signs of his age, and it’s starting to affect his ability to govern effectively.
From the rising inflation to the border crisis and foreign threats, it seems like the problems are only getting worse under the Biden administration. The country is also more politically divided than ever before, and the culture war is raging on.
What’s even more concerning is that Biden’s own party is starting to doubt his leadership. Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a member of the Democratic Party, has announced his candidacy for the 2024 Democratic nomination, and he’s off to a strong start.
A recent poll by USA Today found that Kennedy has the support of 14% of voters who backed President Joe Biden in 2020, a surprising strength for a candidate who was once mostly known for championing a debunked conspiracy theory.
Meanwhile, Biden’s support among his own voters is slipping, with only 67% expressing their intention to back him for the nomination over his current contenders.
The poll results underscore Biden’s potential vulnerability to a more mainstream challenger for the Democratic nomination. While there hasn’t been a top challenger just yet, these findings suggest that there may be a risk of a third-party candidate posing a challenge to him in the general election.
Given the current state of the union, it’s no surprise that Americans are concerned about the future of the country.
With Biden’s age and declining leadership abilities, it’s time for Democrats to start considering other candidates who can lead the country out of the current crisis.
