Let me start off with two words. I support Biden. I support Biden.

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden’s political world is collapsing. Top allies have either publicly or privately called on him to step aside. Major donors have fallen off a cliff. Grassroots fundraising is not keeping up with the demands of a campaign that needs to aggressively scale up three months before the presidential election. Members of his own re-election effort have already declared he has no path.

...there is now a palpable sense that the ground has shifted from under him, according to five people with knowledge of the situation, even among some of the president’s most defiant backers internally who now believe the writing is on the wall.

“We’re close to the end,” a person close to Biden said.

That person, who previously doubted Biden would ever step aside, acknowledged that it’s the president’s decision but joined in the array of Biden allies who say he is nearing a point of no return.

A person with knowledge of the projections said the Biden campaign now expects it will only raise 25% of the big donor money it had originally projected to raise in July — that’s a further downgrade from the expectation last week that large-dollar fundraising would be down by as much as 50%. The money has “dried up,” this person said.

One Democratic lawmaker on Wednesday said if Biden didn’t agree to step aside, the cacophony of calls would grow only louder, with more lawmakers expected to urge him to do so. The lawmaker called it a “sad moment” for the party.

A person who spoke with a senior campaign official said a sense of a new reality has fallen over the campaign.

“They’re finally realizing; it’s a when, not if,” the person said.

There has been a shift behind the scenes in the president’s openness to stepping aside, according to multiple people close to Biden, despite his aggressive insistence in public appearances and private phone calls with allies that he is not going anywhere.

If you're old enough, doesn’t it feel a little like the last days and hours of the Nixon thing?

    “Sad,” is how one close Biden ally described the dynamic around the president.

    “There’s no excitement in this campaign at all,” another ally said.



    That describes every D presidential nominee since 2000 - Obama 2008 being the one exception.
