Never before has this happened to a president.
Joe Biden lost a vote that could seal his fate.
Now his presidency might end in the most embarrassing way possible.
Joe Biden is losing the support of the people he depends on the most to get him a second term.
His Democrat base is disintegrating before his eyes as people realize just how incompetent and ineffective he really is.
This is uncharted waters. Never before has America had an 80-year-old president, let alone one who is so unpopular with his own supposed “base.”
It could cost him the White House in 2024. He will have to face not only a Republican nominee, but potentially a strong third-party opponent such as Sen. Joe Manchin.
Biden may not have the stamina or energy to campaign the way he needs and Democrat voters have taken notice of this.
That’s why their approval of Biden has plummeted.
And one recent poll shows this as clearly as ever. When asked whether Biden should be the Democrat nominee, their answer was overwhelmingly “no.”
According to The Guardian, “A majority of likely Democratic voters say the party should nominate someone other than Joe Biden for president next year, according to a poll released on Thursday.”
“Two-thirds of Democratic and Democratic-leaning registered voters surveyed by CNN and SSRS from 25 to 31 August said they would prefer someone other than Biden. Among those voters, 18% specified another candidate but the overwhelming majority – 82% – said they ‘just want to see someone besides’ the current president.”
Since The Guardian is a left-wing rag, they go to great lengths to find other numbers that make Biden look better in the polls, such as strong views of the economy.
But later in the article, they are forced to admit the truth. “But Biden’s own poll numbers remain stubbornly low. In the new poll from CNN and SSRS, the president’s approval rating was just 39%. Nearly 60% of respondents said they thought Biden’s policies had made economic conditions worse, while 76% said they were seriously concerned that, at 80, the president was too old to serve a full term if re-elected.”
The results of this poll are incredibly ominous for Biden. Normally a politician with low poll numbers like this would campaign twice as hard to regain their popularity.
But Biden simply might not be physically capable of doing that at his advanced age. In 2020, he took advantage of the pandemic and ran most of his campaign from his house, doing TV appearances instead of meeting voters in-person.
With the pandemic over, that might not be possible in 2024. This is why the Democrats are panicking, worried that Biden’s weaknesses will tank their chances of victory.
When Democrats are given the choice of who they want as their nominee, their vote is overwhelmingly “anyone but Joe.”
