According to many reports, fear is running rampant through the Democratic Party. Liberal leaders from the top down worry that 2024 could be devastating for Democrats.
Concerns about Joe Biden’s prospects next year are being voiced at all levels of Democrat leadership as the president’s performance could carry over to other areas of the ballot. Biden is on shaky ground to the point his biggest political ally is talking about the concerns with the news media.
Biden faces multiple crises – political and personal – as he lags in the polls behind former President Donald Trump. The man who helped Biden get elected, Barack Obama, recently cast doubt on Biden’s reelection chances. A source confirmed Obama’s concerns.
Obama “knows this is going to be a close race,” the source told the WSJ, and “feels that Democrats very well could lose” the 2024 election while also fretting “the alternative is pretty dangerous for democracy,” the person said.
That “danger” is the person Democrats hate the most – Trump. The 45th president continues to bull his way ahead in voter polls. Recent polls show Trump holding an edge over Joe Biden in seven crucial swing states in hypothetical matchups as the 2024 primary season kicks off next month.
As Trump’s stock rises, liberal Democrats fear Biden’s age, immigration, Israel policy, and economic plan are eroding voter confidence. Add in the president’s son, Hunter Biden, creating a frantic media distraction and the quoted source believes the president is in trouble.
Democrat strategists know it’s late in the race to change horses – boot Biden – but they believe he should step down and let a younger generation of Democrats get in the race. According to Breitbart, Obama’s senior adviser David Axelrod on Sunday suggested President Biden drop out of the 2024 presidential race in the wake of a new poll showing the incumbent trailing former President Trump.
Even liberal media personalities want Biden out of the race. Bill Maher questioned Biden’s ability to win next year, and the media pundit has been voicing his concern for more than 12 months.
“Someone has to convince President Biden that if he runs again, he’s going to turn the country back over to Trump and go … down in history as Ruth Bader Biden, the person who doesn’t know when to quit and so does great damage to their party and their country,” Maher said last month.
Trump holds packed rallies around the country and is seen as the stronger, more qualified leader in what amounts to a two-horse race with Biden. The next few months will determine who has the stamina to go the distance.
