You know what’s funny? President Joe Biden, always a character, seemed pretty annoyed when a reporter asked him about his plans for 2024. The poor guy was just trying to leave Ireland West Airport Knock and hop onto Air Force One to head back to his cozy little home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

These reporters, man, they just wouldn’t let up! They kept pestering him about whether he’d run again in the next election. Finally, ol’ Joe gave them a piece of his mind, saying he’s “already made that calculus” about his re-election plans. He even admitted, somewhat begrudgingly, that he’s planning to run again.

Now, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard this. Jill Biden, the First Lady, and Karine Jean-Pierre, the White House press secretary, have both mentioned before that Biden has his eye on another term. I mean, Jill said he’s “not done” and Karine confirmed his intentions on TV. But let’s be real, no official announcement has been made yet.

While we’re waiting for the big reveal, a couple of underdogs—Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Marianne Williamson—have thrown their hats in the ring for the 2024 Democratic nomination. And hey, don’t count out California Governor Gavin Newsom, who’s been making some waves lately with his cross-country tour.

Not everyone in the Democratic camp is thrilled about the idea of Biden running again. A Yahoo News/YouGov poll found that a lot of voters think he’s just “too old for another term.” Out of all the voters surveyed, 68% said his age is a problem, and even 48% of Democrats agreed.

The New York Post dug into the poll a bit more and found that 18% of Democrats aren’t sure if Biden is too old for another go-around. If he were to win re-election in 2024, the guy would be 86 at the end of his second term! That’s seriously old! Most independents, 71% to be exact, also think 82 is too old to start a second term as president.

Here’s some food for thought: before the midterm elections last year, an AP-NORC poll showed that 52% of folks wanted Biden to run again in 2024. Fast forward a few months, and now only 37% of Democrats support him for a second term. The Associated Press said it best: people are focusing on his age, his coughing, his gait, his gaffes, and the idea that the world’s most stressful job might be better suited for a younger person.

So, what does all this mean for Biden and the Democrats? Well, it’s clear that age is a real obstacle for our dear President. The party’s gotta think long and hard about whether they want to stick with good ol’ Joe or find some fresh blood to lead them into the future. With younger faces popping up as potential candidates, the Democrats need to weigh their options and figure out if Biden’s experience can win over an increasingly doubtful voter base.
