On Sunday, Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin (WV) refused to say if he would support President Joe Biden if he runs for president again in 2024.

Manchin made the comments during an interview with CNN anchor Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.”

“President Biden says he plans to run for re-election in 2024. You have not yet committed to supporting him in 2024. Do you think President Biden deserves a second term?” Tapper asked.

“Jake, I’m not getting involved in any election right now. 2022, 2024, I’m not speculating on it,” Manchin answered.

“President Biden is my president right now, and I’m going to work with him and his administration to the best of my ability to help the people in my state of West Virginia and this country. And we have agreements,” Manchin added.

“We have respectful agreements where we respect each other, and we work through them. So, this is what people are upset about. Everything is about the next election,” he said.

Manchin’s comment come as Biden has continued to lose support from other Democrats. According to a CNN poll from last week, 75 percent of Democrats want someone else as the Democratic nominee in 2024, while just 25 percent support Biden.

As noted by The Hill, “By comparison, 51 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents questioned in a similar poll earlier this year said they wanted a different candidate to be their presidential nominee in the next election, while 45 percent of respondents expressed interest in Biden running again.”
