Fresh doubts over Biden’s re-election bid surface amid Pelosi and Clooney criticisms

U.S. President Joe Biden faces mounting skepticism about his viability for re-election following critical remarks from influential figures like former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Hollywood star George Clooney.

Both figures, known for their sway among Democratic lawmakers and donors, have cast doubt on Biden’s readiness to lead into the 2024 race.

Pelosi, a longtime Biden ally, hinted at concerns over his candidacy during an interview on MSNBC, refraining from explicitly endorsing his continued run. She emphasized the need for Biden to decide swiftly on his electoral future amidst growing internal party deliberations.

Clooney’s condemnation, articulated in a scathing New York Times op-ed, further underscored the erosion of support. “It’s devastating to say it, but the Joe Biden I was with three weeks ago at the fundraiser was not the Joe ‘big F-ing deal’ Biden of 2010,” Clooney wrote, highlighting perceived declines in Biden’s political vigor since his previous terms.

Despite these challenges, Biden’s campaign remains steadfast, asserting his commitment to staying in the race and prevailing over Republican challenger Donald Trump.

The campaign pointed to Biden’s recent engagements with key constituencies, including labor leaders and minority groups, as testament to his enduring support base and strategic alliances.

While some Democratic lawmakers express reservations about Biden’s electability, particularly after lackluster debate performances and ongoing health concerns, others within the party leadership continue to publicly endorse him.

The internal discord underscores the pivotal juncture facing Biden’s campaign as it navigates calls for reassessment amid a competitive electoral landscape.

As Biden continues to rally support and strategize for the upcoming election, the outcome remains uncertain, with pivotal decisions ahead that could shape the Democratic Party’s path to retaining the White House in 2024.
