Many critics have been saying this for a long time. But only recently have liberals been talking about Biden’s struggles.
Thanks to bad election polls, some Democrats are becoming bolder in confronting some of President Biden’s evidently obvious problems.
Now, a noted Civil Rights leader and third-party candidate is predicting Biden’s 2024 chances. And he seems to believe Biden will collapse long before November.
So says Cornel West, who gave that grim assessment in an interview with Politico. “I’m not even sure whether I’ll be running against Biden,” the independent presidential candidate told the outlet.
“Biden — I think he’s going to have an LBJ moment [and] pull back.”…
West, 70, believes history just might repeat with Biden as polling already shows his lacklustre impact on potential voters – both outside his own party and within.
Third-party presidential candidate Cornel West is predicting that Joe Biden will pull out of the race before November 2024. He said Biden will have an “LBJ moment” and withdraw.
President Johnson stunned the nation when he revealed he would not seek re-election in March of 1968. Concerns over his health and his failures in the Vietnam War were enough to convince him not to run.
If critics are to be believed, Joe Biden has more problems than that past president. He is suffering from his own health issues, based on the observations of many. He is responsible for several conflicts overseas, including fears of global war with Iran or China.
And that’s not to mention his low approval ratings, sentiments over his economy, the growing border crisis, and many polls showing him losing to Donald Trump.
But will the Democrats repeat history and pull out, after campaigning for a year? The Democratic Party has been unwilling to endorse a primary rival. And time is running out so if Biden is to drop out, he needs to give potential candidates enough of a chance to campaign.
But with primary voting about a month away, it is unlikely the party will let him do that.
- Cornel West predicted Biden will have his “LBJ moment” and pull out from the race.
- President Johnson did not run for re-election, due to criticisms of his handling of the Vietnam War.
- West is running as a third-party, socialist candidate.
