Democrats petrified after recent polls show Trump beating Biden

November 8, 2023

Recent polls have sent shockwaves through the Democratic Party, as they revealed President Joe Biden's dire struggles against former President Donald Trump in the 2024 election.

According to the Washington Examiner, a number of high-profile Democrats and operatives sounded the alarm over the past week as poll after poll revealed Biden in a very bad spot, calling into question his ability to win in 2024.

Biden has been plagued with a long list of campaign problems, including his inability to fire up the Democratic base. His age plays a major roll, too, as most Americans believe he's well past his time in politics.

The Examiner noted:

Democrats' tendency to hyperventilate could help them after last weekend's New York Times-Siena College poll since they have 12 months to correct course. But simultaneously, Biden's numbers were driven down, in part, by his age and the economy, and there is nothing he can do about the former.

While many Democrats have spoken out and even suggested that Biden isn't the best choice for the Dem Party in 2024, former Obama chief strategist David Axelrod generated headlines this week after heavily suggesting Biden and his team take a look in the mirror.

"It's very late to change horses; a lot will happen in the next year that no one can predict & Biden's team says his resolve to run is firm. He's defied CW before but this will send tremors of doubt thru the party--not "bed-wetting," but legitimate concern," Axelrod wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Axelrod also hit Biden on his age-related dilemma and held nothing back in his blunt assessment.

"The greatest concern is that his biggest liability is the one thing he can't change. Among all the unpredictables there is one thing that is sure: the age arrow only points in one direction," Axelrod wrote.

Axelrod then directly called out the president, essentially pleading with him to think of the country first, before he risks a loss to Trump next year.

"Only @JoeBiden can make this decision. If he continues to run, he will be the nominee of the Democratic Party. What he needs to decide is whether that is wise; whether it's in HIS best interest or the country's?" Axelrod wrote.

There's continued buzz regarding the gamble that would have to be taken by the Democratic Party to replace Biden so late in the game, with now less than a year to go before 2024's Election Day.

Some have even floated the idea of Michelle Obama stepping in, saying she's the only Democrat strong enough, with resources and name recognition, to take on someone as powerful as Trump. Only time will tell.
