During a CBS News interview that aired on Sunday, Democrat President Joe Biden said that it was “much too early” to decide if he was running again for president in 2024.

“Sir, are you committed to running again, or are there certain conditions that have to be right?” CBS News host Scott Pelley asked.

“Look, if I were to say to you, I’m running again, all of a sudden, a whole range of things come into play that I have– requirements I have to change and move and do,” Biden responded. “And it’s much too early to make that kind of decision. I’m a great respecter of fate. And so, what I’m doing is I’m doing my job. I’m gonna do that job. And within the timeframe that makes sense after this next election cycle here, going into next year, make a judgment on what to do.”

“You say that it’s much too early to make that decision,” Pelley responded. “I take it the decision has not been made in your own head.”

“Look, my intention as I said to begin with is that I would run again. But it’s just an intention,” Biden answered. “But is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”

Biden’s comments mark a shift in language as he has repeatedly stated previously that he intends to run in 2024. In fact, Democrat New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney was forced to backtrack on similarly saying last month that it is “too early to say” if Biden is running in 2024.

Meanwhile, Biden’s support has fallen dramatically among Democrats. According to a recent CNN poll, 75 percent of Democrats want someone else as the Democratic nominee in 2024, while only 25 percent support Biden.
