President Joe Biden said Monday he intends on running for reelection in 2024 but he is not ready to make a formal announcement about his plans.

"I plan on running, Al, but we’re not prepared to announce it yet," Biden told NBC-TV "Today" show co-host Al Roker. 

Biden, 80, has said in private conversations that he is "definitely running," but he does not plan on launching his campaign until this summer, according to CNN.

The president may face difficulties being reelected, however.

A CNN poll last week found less than one-third of respondents said the the Democrat president deserved to be reelected.

Biden may not even have the support of his own party. Minnesota Democrat Rep. Dean Phillips recently said that "literally hundreds" of fellow Democratic members of Congress are weary about Biden being their 2024 presidential nominee. 

Currently, the only Democrats to have officially announced their 2024 presidential campaigns are Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Marianne Williamson.
