Democrats got some bad news.
This is a reality no one in the party wanted to face.
But now Hillary Clinton exposed the dark secret about why Joe Biden is running in 2024.
Joe Biden was never a thought leader among Democrats.
Biden never led an ideological movement to reshape the party the way Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump did in the GOP or Barack Obama did for Democrats.
In two previous presidential campaigns Joe Biden dropped out in humiliation after getting caught plagiarizing a British politician’s speeches in 1988 and winning one percent of the vote in Iowa in 2008.
The only reason Democrats went with Biden in 2020 was the belief he was the strongest candidate to defeat Donald Trump.
Unlike Donald Trump who forged an emotional bond with the GOP base, Biden’s relationship to his party’s voters is purely transactional.
But now Biden trails Trump in national and swing state polls.
Democrats can’t fool themselves into thinking Biden is anything but an underdog as only Jimmy Carter had lower approval ratings at this point in his presidency and every poll shows the voters believe Biden is too mentally decrepit to serve as president.
Biden no longer presents a beneficial value proposition to Democrat Party voters.
That’s led to enough speculation to fill Jeff Bezos’s vault that Democrats would dump Joe Biden and try to field a new candidate to run against Trump.
But two new polls showed why that is an impossibility.
A Harvard-Harris poll showed that if Joe Biden decides not to run in 2024 the top two choices of Democrat Party voters are Kamala Harris and Hillary Clinton.
Throughout 2021 and 2022 Clinton took every step a prospective presidential candidate would take.
Clinton hosted fundraisers for down-ballot candidates, increased her media profile and delivered a major speech.
But the idea that Democrats would turn to a retread like Clinton – who already lost once to Trump – to replace Biden if the party decided Biden couldn’t win is preposterous.
And as for Kamala Harris, the polling data confirms what every top Democrat already knows – Harris winning the nomination guarantees Trump wins the presidency in a landslide.
A McLaughlin & Associates survey found Trump leading Harris by 11 points.

If Kamala Harris were the female version of Barack Obama Democrats thought she was when Harris first won election to the Senate in 2016, Joe Biden would have been gone yesterday.
But Harris ran a disaster of a 2020 presidential campaign dropping out of the race with no money in the bank or support in the polls.
Once in office Harris showed herself to be less than capable through cringe public appearances of high-profile failures such as her tenure as Joe Biden’s border czar.
Democrats stuck with Joe Biden because the alternatives are even less appealing.
