Despite what they’d like Americans to think, Democrats are far from in a good position ahead of the next presidential elections. The Democrat Party is already projected to lose the midterms big time and the White House isn’t too far behind.
This week, news broke that Biden plans to run for re-election in 2024. In fact, the sitting president is especially eager for another go against Trump. Biden is even under the impression that he’s the only Democrat with the ability to keep Trump from getting a second term.
It’s unclear what Biden is basing these beliefs on. The majority of Americans have serious questions about his mental state. On top of this, most voters do not approve of his overall leadership, his handling of gas prices, the economy, or a litany of other matters.
Despite what the president is saying now, there’s a real possibility that he may not run in 2024. If this is the case, then Bernie Sanders could very well take a shot at another presidential campaign, according to Red State.
Too Many Moving Parts
For a while, Vice President Kamala Harris was viewed as the natural successor to the 2024 Democratic nomination if Biden doesn’t run again.
However, according to a recently leaked memo, Bernie Sanders is open to another presidential campaign if the field is open in 2024. Sanders’ interest could potentially put him up against Harris or any other Democrat that chooses to run.
Neither Sanders nor Harris is in the best of positions. Sanders is known for his socialist politics that would alienate a sizable percentage of the American public. Then, there’s also the reality that he’d be 87 at the end of a hypothetical first term in office.
Meanwhile, Harris is the vice president of one of the most unpopular presidents of all time. Even with Biden’s popularity rating in the toilet, Harris’ approval rating is even lower than his.
If Harris did run for the White House in 2024, she’d be undoubtedly tied to all the problems that Biden’s caused since being in the White House thus far.
A Good Chance For Republicans
While Democrats’ prospects aren’t looking so good for the upcoming presidential race, the opposite is true of Republicans.
The GOP is in a unique position to communicate to the American people that conservative policies work and are better for the country. Also, if Republicans win the midterms in November, as they’re expected to, they can build off of this momentum going into 2024.
At the end of the day, whether the Democratic candidate in 2024 ends up being Biden, Harris, Sanders, or someone else, Republicans can win back the White House if they play their cards correctly.
