Biden’s Support Plummets: Calls for a New Democratic Candidate Grow Louder

Following a disastrous debate performance, President Joe Biden is rapidly losing support, even among his former staunch backers. Recent post-debate polling data reveals that two-thirds of voters believe Biden is too old to be president, with one in three Democrats suggesting he should step aside in the upcoming election. Notably, long-time supporter George Clooney has also turned against him.

As the Democratic National Convention (DNC) approaches, set to be held from August 19th to 22nd, the calls for Biden to allow another Democrat to challenge Trump are increasing. Despite this, Biden remains steadfast in his decision to stay in the race.

The New York Post interviewed four Democrats desperate for an alternative candidate in 2024. Among them is Getulio Gonzalez-Mulattieri, a 36-year-old Air Force veteran and public policy student at Cornell University, who has voted Democrat in every presidential election since 2008.

“I’ve slowly gotten to the point that I just can’t go through with this guy,” Gonzalez-Mulattieri told The Post. “All this recent debate did was confirm for me what I already suspected… The guy is cognitively impaired. His mental acuity isn’t there. How is he supposed to have the most important job in government?”

Gonzalez-Mulattieri, who has a background in community organizing and advocacy for racial equity, environmental justice, and immigration reform, feels betrayed by the Democrats’ portrayal of Biden’s mental state.

“Democrats keep pushing the narrative that he’s strong, he’s energetic — don’t give me that b******t,” he said. “Why would I trust you after you’ve given me this false narrative over the course of two years?”

Concerns about Biden’s cognitive health have been echoed by Dr. Tom Pitts, a New York specialist who recently told NBC that Biden displays classic symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease. “I could have diagnosed him from across the mall,” Pitts said. “It’s just like — this guy is not a hard case. I see him 20 times a day in clinic.”

Despite these concerns, the Biden administration continues to obfuscate the issue. The latest effort involves downplaying the significance of Parkinson’s expert Dr. Kevin Cannard’s eight visits to the White House over the past eight months. White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre initially claimed Cannard’s visits were unrelated to Biden’s health, only for Biden’s personal physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, to later admit otherwise.

Adding to the skepticism, Biden has refused to take a diagnostic cognitive test and make the results public. In a recent interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Biden brushed off concerns, claiming he undergoes a cognitive test “every day” and insisting he is capable of running the country. However, his performance on the global stage and domestic issues tells a different story.
