The Democrats are conspiring to take out a huge threat to Joe Biden.
They don’t want Biden to have to face Ron DeSantis.
And their entire conspiracy to tank DeSantis in the primary was just exposed.
Joe Biden has seen the polls. He knows that if he has to face Ron DeSantis in the general election in 2024, he is extremely likely to lose.
DeSantis has so many advantages over him. He is far younger and far more energetic. He has made his state into a paradise of freedom, unlike Biden who has wrecked the Constitution and the U.S. economy.
And the polls reflect this. Over the past month, according to RealClearPolitics, every major national poll that tests DeSantis vs. Biden has shown DeSantis in the lead.
Keep in mind that no Republican presidential nominee has won the national popular vote since 2004. DeSantis is on track to be the first if he wins the nomination.
Biden and the Democrats are in a panic over this. If they are going to hold on to the White House, they know DeSantis cannot be the nominee.
So they are doing everything they can to tank him before it even comes to that.
According to Axios, “Democrats on Monday released 500 pages of opposition research as a preemptive strike on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s 2024 presidential campaign.”
“The extensively researched effort is the latest sign that Democrats view DeSantis as a candidate worth taking down before his anticipated campaign takes off.”
“American Bridge 21st Century, one of the largest tracking and research groups in progressive politics, compiled the trove – released as a website – after spending the last year gathering data on DeSantis to brand him as a ‘MAGA extremist.’”
It’s worth noting that the Democrats failed to find anything on DeSantis that was incriminating. The document ended up being 500 pages of complaints about DeSantis for being “caught up in culture wars.”
But they certainly tried to find dirt on him, and the document makes that clear.
DeSantis’s policies in Florida have turned the state into a bastion of freedom, and eradicated radical Leftism from the state’s government and education system.
He ran for re-election on that record, and defeated the former governor of Florida, Charlie Crist, 60%-40%, a landslide victory never before seen in that state.
The fact that his America First agenda has been so popular is extremely threatening to the Biden administration, as it proves that DeSantis really could win a nationwide presidential election.
That’s why they are trying to kill the DeSantis presidential candidacy in the cradle. Biden wants to run against a nominee who he has already beaten, not someone who the polls say he could never beat.
This is not the first time Democrats have gotten involved in Republican primaries, as they dumped millions in 2022 to nominate “extreme” Republican candidates — and it worked, as most of those candidates lost.
They are trying to do the same in 2024 by killing DeSantis’s candidacy, but this time their efforts might prove to be unsuccessful.
