As Biden’s popularity craters with the American electorate as well as his own party, more Democrats are entering the primary for the 2024 Presidential election with the belief that Biden could lose as an incumbent President.

His dip in popularity comes as he is expected to announce a re-election bid as soon as next week, according to sources within the White House.

With one of the top concerns being Biden’s continued cognitive decline, the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board unloaded on Biden and said that he should not run in 2024.

The paper, which is one of the largest in the country, said that the primary reason Biden shouldn’t run for election is due to his cognitive decline, that is evidenced by a lack of press conferences, frequent unforced errors and gaffes, and scripted appearances.

They went so far as to call a re-election bid by Biden ‘selfish’, noting that he would be serving in the White House until he was 86 years old.

A Harvard CAPS Poll conducted in February of 2023 shows that voters share the WSJ Editorial Board’s concerns about Biden’s cognitive state, with 57 percent of voters having doubt about Biden’s mental fitness.

The Wall Street Journal editorial board argued President Joe Biden is too old to run for re-election Friday, admit reports he is likely to announce his 2024 bid next week.

“The public understands what Mr. Biden apparently won’t admit: that electing an octogenarian in obvious decline for another four years could be an historic mistake,” the editors wrote.

The editors continued, “asking the country to elect a man who is 80 years old and whose second term would end when he is 86 is a risky act that borders on selfish.”

The editors alleged the White House “goes to great lengths” to hide what they speculate is Biden’s declining health.

“But his decline is clear to anyone who isn’t willfully blind,” they argued.

They pointed to his lack of press conferences, scripted appearances, and public stumbles as evidence for their position.

“Different people age at different rates, but the risk of an accelerated decline for Mr. Biden is considerable. The chance that he could serve a full second term is hardly assured,” they wrote.
