Many times, he has been asked if he will run for president again.
“It is my intention …”” is his standard answer.
Joe Biden, who is scheduled to make the announcement on Monday, confirmed his intention to Sky News tonight.
“Are You Going to Run Again, Sir?” “Are you going to run again, sir?” I asked him in the Rose Garden when he was about to enter the Oval Office.
“Yes!” He told me.
Washington DC has been anticipating this announcement for a long time.
He has achieved what he set out to do: he’s got his family’s blessing.
I admit that I was skeptical. I wondered if Jill Biden, the First Lady would tell him to “stop”. He’d be 82 when he runs for re-election, and 86 by the end of his next term.
He’ll have to endure the intense election campaign before he can do anything else. Candidates half his age have been broken by it.
Republicans use his age as a major attack point. Democrats are concerned about it, but they also see it as an advantage.
His supporters are quick to point out his experience. His age alone gives him more experience than other politicians in the country.
His record is also impressive. In 2020, he beat Donald Trump. Trump’s obsession with the Republican Party makes it possible or even probable that he is his competitor.
Trump’s indictment, and everything between, has made it impossible for him to have gained any support in the last two years.
His team hopes that a second run would ensure Biden’s term.
The latest polling shows a different story. A new NBC survey shows that only one out of four Americans are in favor of his decision to run for a second term.
