President Joe Biden’s serious mishandling of classified documents may sink his chances of reelection in 2024. While he attacked Donald Trump for issues surrounding top-secret documents, Biden was holding onto material he shouldn’t have.
The documents found in Joe Biden’s home and library date back to his time as vice president and senator from Delaware. They also underscore the crucial errors Biden made in handling these sensitive documents.
Democrats understand that Biden’s errors take away any moral high ground he was hoping to have against his potential 2024 opponent. However, the growing nature of the Biden scandal means that Biden’s chances are slipping away.
The president hammered former President Trump over the presence of classified documents at the latter’s home of Mar-a-Lago.
The hypocrisy couldn’t be any clearer. Back in Sept. 2022, President Biden described the actions of his predecessor as “totally irresponsible,” saying in part, “I thought, what data was in there that may compromise sources and methods? And by that, I mean, names of people who help et cetera, and it’s just totally irresponsible.”

The trouble doesn’t end for President Biden just from his comments on former President Trump. Indeed, the scandal surrounding the document scandal appears to be growing. Since there is a high chance that Biden’s son Hunter had access to these documents, the issues may only grow from here.
Recent polling doesn’t help the White House, either. A recent NBC News poll found that Americans were just as concerned about Biden’s documents as they are about the allegations against Trump.
The poll found 67% stating that the documents found in Biden’s home were very concerning, compared to the exact same percentage about the ones found in Trump’s home.
More than a few Americans have noticed the difference between how Biden and Trump have been treated.
Democrats must see the position that Joe Biden put them in. It might be time to put the 80-year-old president into retirement and see who might be able to run in 2024.
