The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin explains why that not only might happen, but could be a successful effort for Biden (beverage warning):
Even if his poll numbers are down, the potential to run against a hyper-flawed candidate like Trump may well keep him in the race. (Carter ran in 1980 despite approval numbers that had dropped to 28 percent in 1979) https://t.co/9NKU0Q7uZl

Do Biden supporters really think Jimmy Carter comparisons are indicative of a successful run for re-election?
And how did that turn out for him?

Yes, hopefully Biden does run for re-election, and that it goes just like 1980:
And he was destroyed.

When’s Biden’s “malaise” speech going to take place?

The self-own is strong with Rubin’s take.
