Democrats Consider Replacing Biden with Harris Amid Concerns Over His Health and Performance

Democrats are reportedly considering replacing President Joe Biden with Vice President Kamala Harris at the top of their ticket for the 2024 election. This comes amid growing concerns over Biden's health and performance, as well as his faltering debate performance against former President Donald Trump.

According to a recent op-ed by former Ohio congressman and presidential candidate Tim Ryan, while he loves Biden, Harris should be the Democratic nominee for president if Biden were to remove himself from the ticket. Other possible contenders, including Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and California Gov. Gavin Newsom, are reportedly not planning to enter the race this year and would support Harris if Biden were to step aside.

Biden himself has admitted to feeling tired and needing to work less, telling a group of Democratic governors that he needs more sleep and wants to wrap up his days by 8 p.m. He also joked that while his health is in good shape, "it's just my brain."

The president reportedly had a brief medical check-up after last week's debate, which came just hours after White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre insisted that Biden had not seen a doctor since the debate. Jean-Pierre also denied that the president has any form of degenerative brain disease.

Despite these concerns, Biden has insisted that he is in good health and is determined to defeat Trump in the upcoming election. He has also sought the advice and expertise of Democratic governors, and has pledged that "no one's pushing me out."

However, CNN commentator Van Jones has said that behind closed doors, Democrats are discussing "how" to replace Biden at the top of the ticket, "not whether." He added that there is a "full-scale panic" within the party, with people passing around legal memos and PDFs trying to figure out how to replace Biden in a way that respects him.

This comes as polling tips in favor of Biden's criminally convicted and twice-impeached Republican rival, Donald Trump. At least three sitting Democratic members of Congress have publicly called on Biden to drop out of the race for the White House.

It remains to be seen whether Biden will step aside and allow Harris to take the top spot on the Democratic ticket. However, it is clear that there are growing concerns within the party over his health and performance, and that Democrats are actively discussing their options for replacing him.
