Rep. Carolyn Maloney doesn’t think President Joe Biden will run for re-election in 2024.
“I don’t think he’s running for re-election,” Maloney declared Tuesday night during the NY1 tripartite debate for New York’s 12th congressional district against Rep. Jerry Nadler and attorney Suraj Patel.
Biden’s poll numbers were abysmal.
A recent Gallup poll found that 60% of Americans disapprove of his job performance — the lowest rating of any modern president, including ex-Presidents Jimmy Carter and Donald Trump.
Americans also blame the Commander-in-Chief for policies that have led to a bleak economy riddled with inflation, soaring gasoline and house prices.
Maloney’s outspokenness could serve as a warning to other Democrats backing away from Biden ahead of the November midterm elections.
A senior member of the US House of Representatives, she is also the moderate candidate of the three Democratic primary candidates vying to represent the newly created 12th District.
Nadler, who answered the same question, “Should President Biden run again in 2024?” was less direct, but would not commit to supporting his party’s de facto leader.
“It’s too early to tell,” Nadler said. “It doesn’t serve the purposes of the Democratic Party to deal with this until after the midterms.”
Patel replied, “Yes.”
