According to a new CNN report, a growing number of "top Democrats and donors" are reaching out to potential replacements for President Biden as the 2024 Democrat presidential nominee.

Several aides of top Democrats have allegedly told the outlet that the "lack of the more robust campaign activity" from the Biden camp has signaled to them that the current president isn’t actually running again despite his insistence that he is. As a result, they are keeping their options open.

Democrats within Biden's circle claim, however, that this is just another bit of underestimating Biden, who won the 2020 Democrat primary and subsequent general election despite doubts from many in the party.

CNN’s report, titled, "Slow pace of Biden’s re-election campaign feeds Democrats’ 2024 anxiety," opened with a picture of the doubt that Biden’s apparent campaign efforts have sown among the party.

It stated, "The conversations keep happening — quiet whispers on the sidelines of events, texts, emails, furtive phone calls — as top Democrats and donors reach out to those seen as possible replacement presidential candidates."

According to aides and others connected to these individuals, they feel that "despite what he has said, despite the campaign that has been announced, President Joe Biden won’t actually be running for re-election."

CNN claimed they "feel like time is already running out and that the lack of the more robust campaign activity they want to see is a sign that his heart isn’t really in it."

Uncertainty about Biden’s campaign has been an issue among Democrats for several months. In addition to low polling — some of which puts Biden as the loser in a presidential rematch against former President Donald Trump — the lack of campaign staff and money raised since Biden’s campaign announcement has worried Democrats.



What is surprising is that Brandon's obvious decline is just starting to concern them. 

If it boils down to Trump v. Chuckles, it's going to be a complete nightmare.
