Democrats Turn on Biden: Calls for Withdrawal from Presidential Race Grow Louder



In a surprising and unprecedented move, prominent Democratic figures are now openly calling for President Joe Biden to withdraw from the 2024 presidential race. Leading the charge is Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), who has served in the House since 1995. Doggett’s call comes on the heels of Biden’s recent debate performance against former President Donald Trump, which many viewed as lackluster.

Doggett, who has been a steadfast supporter of Biden in the past, commended the president for his efforts to “rebuild our country” in the aftermath of the Trump administration and the COVID-19 pandemic. However, Doggett pointed to Biden’s trailing polling numbers against Trump as a significant concern. “The president failed to effectively defend his many accomplishments and expose Trump’s many lies,” Doggett said in a statement. “Recognizing that unlike Trump, President Biden’s first commitment has always been to our country, not himself, I am hopeful that he will make the painful and difficult decision to withdraw. I respectfully call on him to do so.”

Joining Doggett in this call is former San Antonio Mayor and HUD Secretary Julián Castro, who has also expressed concerns about Biden’s viability as the Democratic nominee. Castro, a prominent figure within the party, emphasized the need for fresh leadership that can energize the base and effectively counter Trump in the general election.

These calls for Biden’s withdrawal highlight a growing unease within the Democratic Party. Many members fear that Biden’s declining popularity and perceived weaknesses could jeopardize the party’s chances in the 2024 election. This internal dissent represents a significant shift, as Biden has enjoyed relatively strong support from his party since taking office.

The debate performance and subsequent calls for Biden’s withdrawal have sparked intense discussions among Democratic strategists and voters alike. As the 2024 election approaches, the party faces a critical decision: rally behind Biden or seek a new candidate who can more effectively challenge Trump.
