A US special counsel report released on February 8 cleared Joe Biden of criminal charges related to mishandling classified documents, but highlighted concerns about his memory and age.

The report described Biden as an elderly man with memory issues, leading to embarrassment and criticism.

The report is “a devastating blow which obviously the Trump people are delighted about. They can’t believe their luck,” journalist Michael Wolff wrote.

Democrats are divided, with some feeling that the party’s establishment made a mistake in backing Biden as the presidential candidate. Questions about Biden’s age, health, and competence have become increasingly prevalent, with concerns about his ability to lead effectively.

Top editors at Politico outlined a potential three-step political process for Democrats to replace President Joe Biden on their 2024 ticket. The editors discussed potential alternatives such as Vice President Kamala Harris, Hillary Clinton, and Michelle Obama.

The process suggests Biden voluntarily stepping aside before the Democratic National Convention, delegates nominating a new candidate at the convention, and the addressing of logistical challenges.

“For those curious, Democrat Party has multiple easy ways to get rid of Biden and replace him with a potentially less senile/less corrupt candidate,” Federalist editor-in-chief Molly Hemingway wrote on X. “The challenges are basically just political, not procedural.”

1. Biden Must Voluntarily Step Aside Before Democrat National Convention: Politico writes, “Biden would announce he would not accept the nomination and release his delegates to back a different nominee. He could insist he’s still fit to serve out another term but that he accepts the public’s concerns with a president who would be 86 at the end of a second term.”

2. Delegates Nominate a New Candidate at Convention: Politico reported, “Heading into the convention, Biden would still remain a kingmaker. If the rest of the primaries went as South Carolina and Nevada have, the vast majority of delegates to the convention would be pledged to Biden. They aren’t legally required to support the president — or anyone he’d potentially endorse to replace him on the ticket — but these individuals would’ve been vetted by the Biden campaign, and many would likely follow his lead if he backed a candidate.”

3. Recognize the Democratic Nomination: Politico added, “A late Biden departure from the ticket would pose a logistical nightmare for the states. Overseas military ballots are set to go out in some places just a couple of weeks after the convention ends, and in-person early voting begins as soon as Sept. 20 in Minnesota and South Dakota. Yes, Americans technically vote for electors, not presidential candidates — but any post-convention effort to replace Biden would likely end up in court if votes have already been cast with the name ‘Joseph R. Biden Jr.’ on the ballot.”

“The latest polling has over 80pc of the public concerned about Biden’s age. And they say age, they don’t say health,” pollster Frank Luntz said. It’s a “proxy for a loss of activism” in government “and get-it-done-ism… It’s about how he makes them feel.”

“Seventy per cent of Americans don’t want Trump or Biden…. So people throw up their hands in desperation and say, how can a country of 337 million people give us these two choices?” he added.

There has been a growing focus on Biden’s age and performance, with criticisms from both sides of the political spectrum.
