Ahead of the 2024 presidential election, Joe Biden is far from a shoo-in for a second term. Despite being the incumbent Democratic candidate and significantly leading primary challenger Dean Phillips, the president still has some strikes against him.
For starters, a series of polls show Biden either in dead heat with Trump or trailing him by multiple points. Meanwhile, other surveys indicate most Americans believe the current president is too old to remain in the White House for another four-year stint.
At the same time, Biden’s support for Israel following the October 7 attack has hurt him among some left-wing supporters. Segments (but not all) of the left support Palestine and/or Hamas over Israel, with some even labeling the terrorist group as “freedom fighters.”
Biden, for what it’s worth, has not adopted this disposition.
Nevertheless, if the president wants another term in the Oval Office, he’ll need the votes. In an apparent effort to connect with younger people, Biden recently set up an account on TikTok. This subsequently triggered backlash from both Democrats and Republicans.
This didn’t pan out so well
The president made his debut on TikTok with a video answering questions about the Super Bowl. Captioning his video was a simple “lol, hey guys.”
