(RepublicanInformer.com)- Despite the White House’s repeated insistence that the 79-year-old Joe Biden will definitely run for reelection in 2024, the speculation that the Democrat nomination is up for grabs just isn’t tamping down.
According to former Clinton advisor Dick Morris, there will be a runaway Democrat primary for the nomination in 2024 unless something can be done to mend the divide between the far-Left and the “centrist” wing of the Democrat Party. And only someone all Democrats respect could do that.
One possible “party elder” Morris suggests is former President Barack Obama.
The last thing Democrats need in 2024 is a bitter, runaway primary season. Morris believes that if the primaries are still divided by Super Tuesday, it could be damaging to the Democrats’ prospects in the general election.
Given how unpopular the Democrats are right now, this herculean task may be beyond even the skills of Barack Obama.
One senior aide to a 2020 progressive candidate told the Washington Examiner that the Democrat Party isn’t resonating with most Americans because most Americans are moderate or conservative. And the party has shifted so far left, their language and messaging are out of touch.
On Wednesday, President Biden told ABC News’ David Muir that he is absolutely running for reelection in 2024 provided he remains as healthy as he is today.

Democrats, however, don’t seem to agree. One Democrat party official told the Washington Examiner last week that even when the White House pushes back on the notion that Biden is a one-term president, they aren’t pushing back very hard.
The fact is, polling shows the American people do not want Joe Biden, who would be in his eighties in 2024, to run again. In a recent Politico/Morning Consult poll, 67 percent of Independents said they hope Biden doesn’t run.
Already some of the Democrats who ran in 2020 are signaling they plan to run again in 2024, including Vice President Kamala Harris, Senators Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar, and stay-at-home dad Pete Buttigieg.
