Even though RootsAction is a group that describes itself on its Twitter page as a “progressive group that helped defeat Trump,” it is not very happy now. This week, the group released a new “Don’t Run, Joe” one-minute-long ad in New Hampshire that shows real voters explaining why Biden should not run for president again.
However, the reason why people in New Hampshire don’t want Biden to run again is not because of his disastrous job performance.
“We can’t afford to risk the White House to a Republican who could defeat Status Quo Joe,” one “vote blue no matter who” American said, implying that Trump and Ron DeSantis would easily be able to defeat Biden in 2024.
Other people agreed and said that “the election is at serious risk” because Biden’s low popularity turned him into a man who is “way too much to gamble.”
“Our ideas are way more popular than Joe Biden is,” one of the people said.
Pollsters back up the opinions of the people by showing that it is not just some anecdotal evidence.
“Pollsters with the CNBC All-America Economic Survey last week asked if Biden should run again and 70% said no — just 19% want him to go again. When broken down by party, a majority of Democrats (57%) said ‘Don’t Run, Joe,’ along with 66% of independents,” the Wire reported.
The majority of people, including seniors, agree that Biden’s age is a significant factor.
“The poll found that 47% of those who don’t think Biden should run cited age as a major reason, including 61% of Democrats and 66% of seniors.”
However, the younger people showed different results.
“The younger set was different: just 43% of the 18-49 demographic group cite age as a major reason for Biden, 80, not to run.”
A joint founder of RootsAction, Norman Solomon, said that Biden should heed leftist voters rather than just simply telling them to watch him run for re-election.
“His public approval ratings remain dismal, as they have been all year,” he said on Twitter.
“No amount of bravado from the White House can change the severe vulnerabilities that a Biden 2024 campaign would face.”
Bookies also don’t like Biden.
“Biden’s crushed approval ratings and worsening betting odds are causing Democrats to wonder if he is the right figure to take on Trump in 2024,” Joe Short of Gambling.com said.
“According to the Wall Street Journal, Democrats expect him to go for a second term at the age of 82, but they’re not sure he should.”
