According to reports, President Joe Biden has told former US president Barack Obama that he would be standing for reelection in the 2024 elections.

There is widespread speculation over whether Biden, 79, will seek another term as president. The US president may be pitted against Trump who was beaten by Biden in the 2020 US elections.

In the latest Gallup poll, Biden's current job approval ratings fell 14 points compared to the early months of his presidency with the younger generation disappointed with the president.

The Gallup poll showed Biden's job ratings was at its highest between January to June last year with 56 per cent Americans on Biden's side but it began to plummet from July 2021 and has stayed in the 40 per cent range.
