Conservative Republicans were high-fiving all around and popping champagne corks when they got wind of the latest New York Times and Siena College polls. These bad boys showed former President Donald Trump lounging comfortably in the lead over President Joe Biden in crucial swing states. Not only did this confirm what a bunch of other polls have been saying, but it also put the odds of Trump reclaiming the White House at just about 50-50. The thought of wiping that smug grin off Biden’s face had conservatives everywhere doing the happy dance.
Biden on the brink: Democrats start to panic about whether the president is a surefire 2024 winner https://t.co/M3JPNlkbny

David Axelrod, the Democratic operative who was the ringleader for Barack Obama, practically begged Biden to rethink his presidential dreams. He practically screamed from the rooftops, begging Biden to see the light and throw in the towel. And let’s not forget Donna Brazile, who labeled these poll results a “wake-up call.” Democrats were straight up panicking and running around like chickens with their heads cut off. It was like a five-alarm fire, and the whole world could hear them wailing.
Just a year ago, Biden was supposed to be the golden boy, the Democrat who would sweep Trump under the rug and out of the White House. But now, it looks like Biden’s chances are about as good as a snowball in a toaster. The RealClearPolitics averages show Trump with a slim lead over Biden in national polls. Even more shocking, this joker has been leading the pack for most of the year. That’s some serious winning power right there.
And let’s not forget the grand finale — the Electoral College. In case you forgot, Trump did the unthinkable and won in 2016, even though he lost the popular vote. So, even if all the California and New York liberals join forces, it’s no guarantee Biden will snatch up those crucial Electoral College votes. It’s like the Super Bowl, folks — the popular vote means squat if you can’t nail those Electoral College touchdowns.
Biden’s approval ratings are lower than a snake’s belly in a wagon rut. Not even hitting 50%, his overall job approval is pitiful. When it comes to specific policies, like the economy, foreign policy, inflation, and crime, Biden’s numbers are tanking faster than a lead balloon. Even his own peeps in the Democratic party are side-eyeing him, with the majority wishing he’d take a long walk off a short pier. It’s like that time you brought home a stray cat and your mom said, “Absolutely not” – nobody wants him around.
And let’s talk about those personal ratings, folks. Biden is about as likable as a case of the chicken pox. Most people don’t think he gives two hoots about them, doubt his honesty, and think he’s about as sharp as a butter knife. Ouch, that’s gotta hurt!
“But wait, there’s more!” The icing on the cake is that Biden’s approval ratings are so low it’s not just the swing voters he’s losing. Even his loyal supporters are starting to jump ship, yikes! But hey, even Biden knows he’s a placeholder until a younger, hipper Democrat is ready to swoop in and save the day. It’s like Biden’s just warming up the seat for the next contestant to play “Who wants to be President?”
Now, when it comes to the economy, sure, the unemployment rate’s looking spiffy and inflation is taking a breather, but let’s scratch a little deeper and…oops! Prices for goods and services are still climbing faster than a squirrel up a tree. Not to mention the crazy-high interest rates have made it harder for folks to score a loan for a car or a house. It’s like being able to see the finish line but getting caught in a slow-mo replay.
The cherry on top? The southern border is a hot mess, crime is running rampant in the streets, and the country is more divided than a kid’s room after a toy tornado. Even more shocking is life expectancy taking a nosedive, hitting its lowest point in 25 years. Way to go, Biden!
As the 2024 election inches closer, it’s anyone’s guess what’ll happen next. Sure, Trump might be a loveable ol’ scamp, but there’s a whole year for anything to bust this party up. And let’s not forget the wild card of a third-party challenge. Could we see another Ross Perot shake things up? Only time will tell. But one thing’s for certain — voters are itching for a change, and those incumbents better watch their backs.
So, buckle up, buttercups. It’s gonna be a wild ride to the 2024 finish line. And it looks like Trump might just be the one to clinch the gold medal. Grab your popcorn, because this show is just getting started!
