“Despite the White House’s damage control efforts since Biden’s disastrous debate performance, prominent Democrats are increasingly going public with their criticism. Rep. Lloyd Doggett of Texas became the first Democrat in Congress to call for Biden to step down, saying in a statement that ‘I am hopeful that he will make the painful and difficult decision to withdraw.’ Adam Frisch, a Democratic Congressional nominee in Colorado, swiftly followed, saying that ‘the path ahead requires a new generation of leadership.’ … Meanwhile, three quarters of US voters believe Democrats would have better odds of keeping the White House with a candidate other than Biden, a CNN poll conducted after the debate showed.” (07/02/24)
