Poll after poll has shown that Joe Biden is one of the least-liked presidents in modern American history. That’s why, over the past two years, there have been numerous reports that Democrats have been looking elsewhere for 2024.
Democrats have often expressed doubt about having an enfeebled man who sometimes forgets where he is.
It’s hard not to see why.
The Daily Mail reported:
Biden, the oldest president in American history, turns 81 on Monday and already saw a poll today showing a majority of Democrats nationally want to see another Democrat enter the race to primary him.
A poll from Marquette Law School shows the president trailing his predecessor, Donald Trump, by a 52 to 48 margin. However, Trump’s not the only GOP hopeful getting the best of Biden.
Former UN Ambassador and South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley leads Biden by a whopping 10 points, 55 to 45.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who many saw as Trump’s toughest challenger in the Republican Primary, leads him by a 51 to 49 advantage.
Biden himself may be seeing the writing on the wall. New Conservative Post noted that yesterday, “Gavin Newsom may have just received the biggest endorsement of his life. During a meeting of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference, the president and current frontrunner for the 2024 Democratic nomination appeared to pick the California governor as his successor.”
BIDEN: “I want to talk about Gov. Newsom, want to thank him. He’s been one hell of a Governor, man — matter of fact — he could be anything he wants. He could have the job I’m looking for.” pic.twitter.com/KiMZnpp1fs
