Given President Joe Biden’s age, Democrats are starting to agree he shouldn’t run again. The best shot Democrats have at electing a president in 2024 is to get someone with a backbone and reasonable policies. Vice President Kamala Harris and Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg aren’t the players either.
The best shot that the Democrats had at a winning, reasonable, and popular candidate was Tulsi Gabbard. Gabbard is widespread among Republicans for her views on censorship and radical left pushback.
That’s not a standard Democrat message to hear in 2021. One of Gabbard’s campaign messages is, “I will restore this soldier’s principles to the White House, restoring the presidency’s standards of decency, honor, and respect, and, above all, love for our people and love for our country.”
Even the infrastructure bill didn’t bring Biden’s popularity up significantly. Biden is slowly moving to poll numbers below 40%, and by slow, it’s incredibly fast because Biden has been in office less than a year.
Another sign of bad policies and a poor leader is the lack of unification in the presidency. Eighty-one million voters and Biden can’t keep his polling about 50%, and it doesn’t seem like there were 81 million voters who liked Biden.
Just look back at Biden’s campaign. Almost every interview Biden did was from his home, and they didn’t go very well. A teleprompter was obviously in the background, and Biden stuttered, used racial language, and had obvious signs of cognitive decline. It was sad to see an aging mad being put out there like he was.
Meanwhile, Trump was out with tens of thousands of people at his rallies and still pulls those numbers after losing the 2020 election. Please don’t discount the Republican party and its influence on the political realm. Democrats are skipping out on the Democrat agendas like never seen before, particularly among the Black American community.
Even with the media coverage of the Biden Administration and the audacity that the White House had to meet with reporters to urge them to report positively on the Democrat achievements, there’s a contention between what the public sees and what they believe.
