For those longing for four more years of Joe Biden, they may just get their chance.
According to sources reported by The Hill, Biden recently met with former President Barack Obama, and told him that he plans to run for a second term in 2024.
Biden has said publicly in the past that he does plan to seek a second term in the White House, but by telling Obama, he’s clearly clearing the deck ahead of what would otherwise be a crowded primary.
Joe Biden tells Obama he is running for re-election in 2024. That’s good news for President Trump!

Biden The Democrats Only Hope?
Joe Biden’s tanking approval numbers and low approval on the key issues could make him a huge liability, but 2024 is a longtime from now in terms of politics.
Just last month in Brussels, Biden told the press he’d be “very fortunate” to face Trump again in 2024 – and he could just get what he wishes for.
Though it’s a long way off, a recent Harvard poll shows Trump trouncing Biden in a 2024 rematch.

And it’s not particularly close, showing Trump taking 47% to Biden’s 41%.
The Hill also reports that a source familiar with the meeting between Obama and Biden stated, “I believe he thinks he’s the only one who can beat Trump. I don’t think he thinks there’s anyone in the Democratic party who can beat Trump and that’s the biggest factor.”

Biden 2020 pollster John Anzalone, in a recent interview with Politico, said:
“You go head-to-head and Joe Biden’s always ahead of him. Not by a lot — one or two points. People don’t want the chaos. Even at his lowest approval rating, he still beats Donald Trump.”
Should Joe Biden for whatever reason not run in 2024, what is the Democrats’ “Plan B?”
Several names have been tossed around, but is there one name who would be able to smell the impending vacuum of candidates should Biden not run?
Back in December, Hillary Clinton started to show up at various conferences and online venues and appeared to offer up her candidacy.
More recently in March on an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Mika Brzezinski questioned whether Clinton would be up for running again. She laughed it off, saying, “No. Just no. No, but I am certainly going to be active in supporting women running for office and other candidates who I think should be reelected or elected, both women and men.”
And while no one is mentioning it, there’s no doubt that Michelle Obama would be a formidable candidate in a Democrat primary.
