WASHINGTON – Joe Biden said his decision to seek re-election did not come automatically and that he thought four more years as president of the United States would be a long time.
“It’s not an automatic decision to run again,” Biden said Wednesday night at a fundraiser at former Blackstone vice chairman Tony James’ New York apartment.
Biden, 80, also admitted that the question about his age was “perfectly valid.”
However, he said he hopes his experience in government will give him an advantage.
“But I hope there’s a little bit of wisdom I can bring to this job that I’ll continue to have going forward,” said Biden, who announced his re-election campaign late last month. there is no.”
“I think we made a pretty solid decision,” he added.
An ABC News/Washington Post poll released over the weekend showed the president’s approval rating at just 36%, with 68% of Americans saying he’s too old to serve next term.
But a Yahoo News/YouGov poll released early Wednesday gave the president a slight lead over both. Former President Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis – Two leading Republican candidates – Possible head-to-head.bloomberg
