The Presidental Drama; it’s Back

The Presidental Drama; its Back

The four years are almost up, and it is that time again: the United States Presidental Elections.

Just a few days ago, President Biden announced that he is running for re-election in 2024, stating that he wants voters to let him “finish this job.”

Biden is running on the same ideals that he ran on the first time around, and what he has been upholding throughout his time in office so far. That being women’s health care rights, LGBTQ+ rights, book banning, and the battle “for the soul of America.”

In his launch video, the ideal of freedom was extremely prominent. Biden stated, “freedom. Personal freedom is fundamental to who we are as Americans. There’s nothing more important. Nothing more sacred.” To me, this sounds like a strong connotation to the republican party and what legislation they have been pursing the past years.

The Problem

It is well known that President Biden is the oldest President in United States history at the ripe age of 80. Many voters find this problematic regardless of the constant clean bill of health he holds. He would be 86 by the end of the second term if re-elected, but he is extremely healthy.

Another issue is the approval ratings that have dipped down into the low 40s, but the Biden administration is continuing to let us know that they are higher than his past opponent, and possibly future opponent, Donald Trump.

As for democratic opponents in the upcoming primary elections that determine the party’s nominee, they typically do not run somebody against an incumbent. But due to the age concerns, they may go with somebody younger.

It is all up in the air right now, but hopefully there is no repeats of the events surrounding the 2020 elections.
