A strong plurality of Democrats believe Joe Biden should not be the party’s nominee this year, with a notable exception: voters aged 65 and up. While 47% of the party believes the President should “definitely” or “probably” exit the race, only 26% of the senior cohort feel this way according to a new YouGov poll. In contrast, 58% of Democrats aged 18-29 want Biden out.

Ex-speaker Nancy Pelosi has made it abundantly clear that she wants the President to stand down, but she’s so far refused to say so directly — perhaps because of the optics, given that she herself is 84. Rep. Maxine Waters, 85, has also predictably come to Biden’s defence.

All this is hardly new. Ruth Bader Ginsberg famously refused to retire in her 80s under a Democratic administration, and her death under Donald Trump led to the current 6-3 conservative majority on the Supreme Court. The Democratic Party has clearly learnt few lessons in response. Here’s to 20 more years of Boomer hegemony.
