AOC Might Not Back Biden in 2024

New York Democrat refused to answer a question posed by ’s on Sunday about whether or not she would support President in 2024.

During an interview on CNN’s State of The Union, Bash posed the following question to Ocasio – Cortez:

“I just want to ask about President Biden,” Bash asked the Congresswoman. “He is saying he’s going to run again in 2024. Will you support him?”

Ocasio – Cortez didn’t give a straight answer, and waffled in her response:

“If the President chooses to run again in 2024, I mean, first of all, I’m focused on winning this majority right now. “And preserving a majority this year in 2022. We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it. But I think if the president has a vision, then that’s something we’re all certainly willing to entertain and examine when the time comes.”

Bashed pushed her further, replying “That’s not a yes.”

“Yeah, you know, I think we should endorse…when we get to it,” Ocasio-Cortez hastily corrected. “But I believe that the President has been doing a very good job so far.

The Congresswoman continued -“And, you know, should he run again, I think that I — you know, I think it’s — we’ll take a look at it,” “But right now, we need to focus on winning a majority instead of a Presidential Election.”

As highlighted by Townhall, Ocasio – Cortez’s comments closely follow a recent “New York Times report with “dozens of frustrated Democratic officials, members of Congress and voters” about Biden’s ability to “rescue his reeling party.”

AOC’s hesitancy to support the President mirrors findings from a Morning Consult poll released earlier today.

Key findings released by the group show that “only 43% of young Democrats say Biden has been keeping the promises he made during 2020, compared with 60% of the average Democratic voter who said the same.”

Biden’s most recent approval rating drop has been driven by Democratic women aged 18 – 34, a group in which Representative Ocasio – Cortez squarely finds herself.
