A report from Reuters suggests that Joe Biden is facing growing pressure from within the Democrat Party to withdraw from the 2024 Presidential race.

At least 25 House Democrats are reportedly planning to urge Biden to end his campaign following his poor debate performance against President Trump. Concerns are especially strong among moderate Democrats in swing districts, who are receiving a barrage of questions about Biden from their constituents.

Polls, including one from Reuters/Ipsos, indicate that one in three Democrats believe Biden should step down. An unnamed Democratic aide mentioned that the situation could worsen if Biden has more public mishaps.

“It looks like the dam has broken,” one aide said.

Some Democrats, like Rep. Lloyd Doggett and Rep. Jared Golden, have already publicly called for Biden to leave the race.

Later the same day, Rep. Jared Golden (D-ME) said that Biden will lose to Trump in the election and “Democracy will be just fine.”

Additionally, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has recently questioned Biden’s mental fitness, after previously defended it.

“I think it’s a legitimate question to say, ‘Is this an episode or is this a condition?’ And so when people ask that question, it’s legitimate, of both candidates,” Pelosi said.
