Establishment network CNN has suggested 11 candidates who could replace Democrat Joe Biden in 2024.
The network, which has downplayed Biden's awful economic record, admitted his “ongoing political struggles” and "age" could mean he could be switched out.

On Monday White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked about rumors regarding Biden’s “political fate” and whether Democrats will replace Biden in 2024.
“The White House’s message is focused on what the American people elected the president to do,” Psaki said.
“The President has every intention of running for reelection.”
As Breitbart reported:
Fueling the talk about Biden’s potential replacement in 2024 is the New York Times, which published a Sunday article saying “there is no shortage of chatter about the options if he continues to falter.”
The Times article suggested the Democrat Party could face a possible contested primary between Democrat candidates over fears of Biden’s “unpopularity” and a “Trump comeback.”
“A nexus of anxious currents in the Democratic Party has stoked speculation about a possible contested primary in two years,” the publication wrote.
“On top of concerns about Mr. Biden’s age and present unpopularity, there is an overarching fear among Democrats of the possibility of a Trump comeback — and a determination that the party must run a strong candidate to head it off.”
In an October NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll, the plurality of Democrats believes Biden isn't th best candidate to retain the White House in 2024.
Just 36 percent of Democrats indicated Biden was their choice for the 2024 election, while 44 percent believed a new nominee would increase their chances of retaining the presidency.
