Dozens Of Democrats Preparing To Call On Biden To Drop Out ‘If He Seems Shaky’: Report

 Dozens of Democrat lawmakers are reportedly preparing to call on President Joe Biden to drop out of the 2024 presidential election following his disastrous debate performance last week.

At least 25 Democrats were preparing to push Biden to step down “if he seems shaky in coming days” and is unable to quell growing dissent within the party, according to a report from Reuters.

Biden reportedly acknowledged to a close ally that if he is unable to convince the public that he is mentally fit for office in the coming days he might not be able to salvage his presidency. The White House denied that report.

Bloomberg News reported that “Biden is rapidly losing the support” of Democrat lawmakers and candidates who are panicking that if he stays in the race, Republicans will have a “sweep of Washington” on Election Day.

There are reportedly multiple letters that are circulating among House Democrats — including members in swing districts and members in deep blue districts — that would call on Biden to drop out.

The potential mutiny that Biden could face from within his own party comes as he is set to meet with Democrat governors on Wednesday evening in an attempt to reassure them about his abilities.

Top Biden donor Charles Myers told Bloomberg that the effort to replace Biden on the ballot was moving “much faster” than Biden’s team anticipated and that they have “probably another five to six days.”

Former President Barack Obama reportedly started to sour on Biden in the days following the debate, even though he said publicly that he still backed him.

Three Democrat officeholders stated on Tuesday that they believe Biden will lose to Trump this fall, including Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), who called on Biden to step down; Rep. Marie Gluesenkamp Perez (D-WA), and Rep. Jared Golden (D-ME). Obama’s former HUD Secretary Julian Castro also called on Biden to resign on Tuesday.
