At this rate, what Joe Biden has planned for the 2024 presidential election is anyone’s guess. The current president has been all over the place when it comes to whether or not he intends to run for the White House.
Originally, Biden claimed from the start of his term that he planned to run again; however, when he was asked later, Biden said it wasn’t soon enough to make a call.
At the rate things are going, polls show that if Biden were to go up against Trump, he’d win by a handful of points. However, polls that pit the current president against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis have Biden losing by a handful of points.
As this data emerges, first lady Jill Biden is weighing in with her own commentary regarding the 2024 presidential election, per CNN.
The First Lady on 2024
According to sources close to Jill Biden, she initially had her reservations about the president running for a second term earlier this year. However, these same sources now allege the first lady is all in for the president seeking another stint in office.
The outcome of the midterm elections is believed to have played a role in the first lady’s change of mind. Congressional and gubernatorial races this year were much better for Democrats than anticipated.

This has been largely attitbuted to former President Trump choosing to endorse Republicans who wound up being deeply unpopular with the national electorate. Though in spite of this, the Republican Party did manage to take back the House of Representatives as expected.
Out of Step With the Country?
While Jill Biden may be all on board for her husband to run for president again, polling shows that most Americans don’t share this sentiment.
The latest data has anywhere from six to seven in ten Americans opposing a Biden 2024 run. Former President Trump isn’t too far behind, either.
It turns out that many Americans don’t want a 2.0 version of the 2020 presidential election. There is also significant interest for a generational change in leadership.

After all, Biden himself is in his 80s and would be 82 upon starting a second term in office. Some people in support of generational leadership change also have floated the possibility of age limits on who is eligible to run for the White House.
At the end of the day, time will tell whether or not Joe Biden actually does choose to campaign for another term in office.
What do you think about Jill Biden now being on board with her husband running for a second term in the White House? Do you believe it’s time for the country to move on to other candidates?
