Democrats are warming to a Biden 2024 campaign. They're just not sure if he'll run.

Many Democratic leaders, operatives and officials are cautiously warming to the idea of President Joe Biden running for reelection in 2024, dozens of high-ranking Democrats told CNN.

But just like many voters and donors -- as poll after poll shows -- they're still not sure he should do it, or that he will. The mood has notably shifted among top Democrats in recent months. During the depths of Biden's political struggles in March, some party leaders from all over the country huddled in the hallways of the Hilton a few blocks from the White House for the annual Democratic National Committee meeting, according to four people involved in the conversations. Over drinks, while looking around to make sure no one overheard, they winced and grimaced and whispered: What could they do to stop Biden from running for reelection again?"There were people who were not certain he would be the right candidate," said Jim Roosevelt, a top DNC member and the grandson of a president who ran for reelection more than any other. When those same state party chairs and executive directors returned to the capital for their fall meeting two weeks ago, the disposition had whipped around. Biden's summer of successes has started to permeate. Fears of a radical Donald Trump restoration remain high, mounting legal problems regardless. A potentially bruising open primary would loom if Biden decided against seeking another term.Read More"In New Mexico I've seen a radical shift after his speech in Philadelphia," said the state's Democratic Party chair Jessica Velasquez, referring to the President's battle for the soul of democracy speech."Part of that is he just keeps showing up." A state party chair who asked not to be named added,"People were grumbling because nothing was passing. Now we're getting the Biden we all voted for."ReplayMore Videos ...MUST WATCH

FJB !!!!! I don’t a single person who is excited for another bumble of 4 years Respectfully didn't agree with the sanctions, but he did bring back oil prices to be affordable, so overall good job. Hope he normalizes relations with Islamic Emirate Afghanistan, changes strategy so we can contain china and push back Russia from gaining influence in Afghanistan

The smart thing for Dems to do is find a more youthful candidate who appeals to the younger voters and women of our country. The new generation will steer the course of America. Older Dems need to know when to get out of the way. Dems need fighters not appeasers. Lol, god I hope he runs !!! Yes we are. Yes he will & he has my vote!
