Biden Dropout Tracker

This page will track Democratic Congresspeople who have called for Biden to withdraw from the 2024 Presidential Race. 

On June 27th, CNN hosted the first debate of the 2024 Presidential Race between Biden and Trump. The debate was an unmitigated disaster for Biden. He appeared frail and confused during the debate. Biden also made multiple gaffes, including an infamous conclusion that he “finally beat Medicare” during one of his responses. 

Since that disastrous performance, Democrats across the country have begun calling for the embattled incumbent president to withdraw from the 2024 Presidential Race. So far, many of those calls for withdrawal have come from anonymous sources or unelected pundits. However, on July 2nd, the first Democratic Congressperson — Lloyd Doggett (D TX-35) — called on Biden to withdraw from the race. This page will track those calls from Democratic Congresspeople. Click here to read about my methodology.

Methodology

[jump to top]

I track what percent of Democrats in the House and Senate are calling for Biden to withdraw. I’ll measure this two ways for each chamber:

  1. Weighted by # of reps (i.e. 5 out of 213 Democratic representatives have called for Biden to withdraw)
  2. Weighted by # of constituents (i.e. There are 161.4 million people living in a district represented by a Democrat. The representatives calling for Biden to withdraw represent 3.8 million of those constituents)
    • For the Senate, I count all constituents/states that have at least one Democratic Senators.
