With each passing week, it becomes more apparent that Joe Biden will probably not be the Democrat nominee in 2024.
He is too old and it shows. His poll numbers are horrible. There is not one voter bloc that is calling for him to run again.
But what are Democrats going to do if he doesn’t run? Are they going to rally around Kamala Harris? It sure doesn’t look that way.
The New York Post reports:
Nervous Democrats pray for anyone but Kamala Harris as 2024 nominee
Democrats are despairing about the possibility of Kamala Harris becoming the 2024 nominee if President Biden doesn’t seek a second term in office, insiders told The Post.
Three polls just this month show more than 50% of Americans hold an unfavorable view of Harris, and those headwinds will likely only increase should Republicans retake the House next year.
“Her main problem is not being a woman or mixed race, her problem is she has low ratings just like President Biden,” said Larry Sabato, a professor of Politics at the University of Virginia. “If Biden were riding sky high, she would be doing relatively well as well. She would be seen as a popular successor carrying on a popular president’s mandate.”
Political donors — who all requested anonymity to speak freely — are similarly beside themselves.
“She seems completely useless. No one involved in this administration should be in the running,” one significant Democratic donor told The Post.
Democrat leaning people on Twitter are pretty open about their concerns.
the dems needs to get serious about who they'll have running in 2024. Kamala is a total nonstarter and Biden will be ancient and he frankly don't got that dawg in him lol https://t.co/38ptQhTEHI

If Trump runs in 2024, with DeSantis as VP, then the Democrats need to find a new amazing candidate, because a Joe Biden and Kamala Harris ticket will not beat a Trump/DeSantis ticket.
