In a shocking turn of events, it seems that even Democrats are starting to question the leadership of Joe Biden. Whispers about replacing him on the 2024 ticket are growing louder, and it’s no wonder why. With Biden’s plummeting approval ratings and mounting legal troubles involving his son’s shady business dealings, the cracks in his presidency are becoming more and more apparent.
While President Donald Trump has seen a marginal improvement in his position compared to Biden, it’s important to note that Biden is being abandoned by members of his own party. The Democrats are realizing that his advanced age and the corruption scandals involving Hunter Biden are rendering him an extremely weak candidate.
Recent polls have shown that Trump’s approval ratings as president are nearly 10 points higher than Biden’s. The American people, despite their doubts about Trump’s personality, recognize that he was a better president overall than Biden. It’s clear that the Biden administration’s attempts to sell their failed “Bidenomics” have fallen flat, with their ratings on economic management stuck below 40% and even showing slight erosion in some national polls.
The implications of this sea change among elite opinion are significant. The donor class, who closely monitor polling data and commentary, are starting to realize that a Trump comeback is a very real possibility. As a result, funding for the Democratic Party might dry up, making it even more challenging for them to challenge Trump in key states like Iowa and New Hampshire.
Both parties find themselves with deeply flawed candidates who elicit intense partisan reactions. While many Democrats may not be enthusiastic about Biden, they will reluctantly vote for him to prevent another Trump term. However, with growing election fatigue and disappointment in Biden’s economic performance, there’s a risk of voters staying home in disgust. This discontent could even lead to the emergence of a third-party run, siphoning away support from Democrats and further weakening their chances.
It’s too early to say for sure what will happen in 2024, but one thing is clear: Biden’s grip on the Democratic Party is slipping, and Republicans have a real shot at reclaiming the White House. As conservatives, we must stay vigilant and seize this opportunity to restore strong and effective leadership to our great nation.
