Democrats have a problem on their hands with Joe Biden.
But they have no good options for how to solve it.
And so, Democrats secretly cheered one brutal poll for Joe Biden.
Joe Biden continues to lay the groundwork for a 2024 re-election campaign.
This proposition does not excite Democrats.
Top Democrats know Joe Biden is too old for re-election and serving until he is 86 years old.
However, Biden is a sitting president and there is no easy way to force him out of the race.
That’s why Democrats were not upset by a new ABC/Washington Post poll showing 58 percent of Democrats want the party to nominate a different candidate in 2024.
“Among Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents, the Post-ABC poll finds 58 percent say they would prefer someone other than Biden as their nominee in 2024 — almost double the 31 percent who support Biden. That is statistically unchanged since last September,” the Post reported about the poll.
Biden is not just unpopular with Democrats.
The country at large does not want to see Biden in the Oval Office for four more years.
Over 60 percent of Americans would be angry if Biden won again — a number greater than the percentage that would be angered by Donald Trump winning re-election.
“More than 6 in 10 Americans (62 percent) say they would be ‘dissatisfied’ or ‘angry’ if Biden were reelected in 2024, while 56 percent say the same about the prospect of Trump returning to the White House for a second time,” the Post reported.
And the death knell in the poll for Biden was the fact that ABC and the Washington Post showed Donald Trump defeating Joe Biden in a 2024 rematch.
Trump leads Biden due to the fact that Trump leads Biden among independents by nine points.
“In a hypothetical matchup between Biden and Trump, 48 percent of registered voters today say they would favor Trump to 45 percent who say Biden, a gap within the poll’s margin of error. About 9 in 10 Democrats back Biden and about the same share of Republicans back Trump. Among independents, 50 percent favor Trump to 41 percent for Biden,” the Post also reported.
Joe Biden’s only pitch to Democrats in 2020 was his claim to be the only one who could defeat Donald Trump.
Even though Biden won the nomination in decisive fashion after the party closed ranks to stop Bernie Sanders, the rank and file as well as party leaders never fell in love with Joe Biden as a candidate.
Democrats see other polls such as one from NBC showing 54 percent of Americans do not believe Joe Biden is physically or mentally capable of serving as president.
It’s a tall ask for Joe Biden to go in front of the American people and run for a second term that will end when he is 86.
That’s also a national security threat as America could face a shooting war with Communist China in the next four years and America entering that conflict with a commander-in-chief suffering from severe cognitive decline is a terrifying prospect.
Democrats have no clear off-ramp to gracefully ditch Joe Biden.
This poll — which undercuts the central rationale for Joe Biden’s candidacy — is welcome news for Democrats looking for other options in 2024.
