Even though the red wave didn’t happen as expected, it appears that the Democrats aren't happy with their chances in 2024 of retaining the executive branch.
As per Fox News, a group known as “Don't Run Joe” has already begun to build momentum in an attempt to convince the Democrat Party to ditch the Biden ticket in the coming election season:
“It’s clear that Joe Biden should not be the party’s presidential nominee in 2024,” the grassroots organization RootsAction said in a press release on Wednesday, announcing their “Don’t Run Joe” campaign.
The campaign’s intent is to point to Biden’s unfavorability and the perceived risk of running a presidential candidate that has held one of the lowest approval ratings in U.S. history against momentous Republicans.
The “Don’t Run Joe” campaign said renominating Biden would be “a tragic mistake.”
It added: “A president is not his party’s king, and he has no automatic right to renomination. Joe Biden should not seek it. If he does, he will have a fight on his hands.”
“We cannot risk losing in 2024. We shouldn’t gamble on Joe Biden’s low approval rating,” the campaign will say in its digital advertisements.
RootsAction hasn't announced who they'd like to be president instead and is only contributing to the notion that Democrats think anyone would be better than Biden.
And they probably aren’t wrong. Biden's approval ratings have been poor for a long time and aren't showing any signs of rising to levels that are acceptable. In August of this year, Biden's approval rating was 38 percent and his disapproval rate was at 58 percent.
While the absence of a red tsunami could increase his approval ratings somewhat, it will surely fall back and continue to decline since his policies will continue to hurt Americans in their money, schools, and streets.
However, RootsAction isn’t attempting to bring normalcy to the White House. They aren’t allies of Republicans. According to the group, their anger towards Biden is based on his “administration’s failure to do more to help fight climate change, protect voting rights, and relieve student debt.”
If you look at his disapproval ratings, it is clear that this group isn't the only one that desires to see Biden removed, but not necessarily due to similar reasons. Time will tell if the effort to get Biden removed from the race will be successful, but if the right and those on the left would like to see him go, chances of success are extremely high.
