Democrat President Joe Biden’s tenure has been such a colossal failure that even members of his own party are hoping to see America move on from the catastrophe that has been his presidency.
Two congressional Democrats have expressed serious opposition to Joe making a big for a second term and odds are more within the party feel the same way.
Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN) and Rep. Angie Craig’s (D-MN) have called for the president to be replaced in 2024 – stating they would refuse to support him for another term.
The rejection of the prospect of Biden serving a second term proves the Democratic Party is in disarray, facing troubling amounts of infighting.
“I think the country would be well served by a new generation of compelling, well-prepared, dynamic Democrats who step up,” Phillips said on a local radio show.
When asked if he would support Biden in 2024, he responded bluntly, “No.”
“I think Dean Phillips and I are in lockstep and alignment with that, and I’m going to do everything in my power as a member of Congress to make sure that we have a new generation of leadership,” Craig told MinnPost.
The Biden administration has maintained for some time now that Joe plans to run for re-election, but when Press Secretary Jean Pierre was recently asked why he hasn’t filed the paperwork to run again in 2024, she was unable to answer the question.
The growing list of his own party members opposed to his candidacy coupled with an overwhelming majority of voters who don’t wish to see him on the ballot again could be forcing the president to reconsider.
Polling shows Biden at odds with his senior leadership and its voter support base.
Only 26 percent of Democrat voters support Biden’s possible return, while 64 percent of Democrat voters prefer a Biden substitute, according to the New York Times.
But the Democrats don’t exactly have a long list of high-profile names waiting for a shot at the presidency.
In fact, one Democrat consultant, Michael Starr Hopkins, recently claimed that the party’s best chance of defeating Trump in 2024 is Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Hopkins claims that AOC and her radical policies are “the future of the Democratic Party,” arguing that she is “a force to be reckoned with” in 2024.
Hopkins went on to praise the socialist rep from New York, saying, “She has been unafraid, unapologetic and unwilling to bend to the will of Washington.”
“The simplicity with which she talks about everyday struggles hints that she’s not just a persona for consumption. She isn’t beholden to corporations, is a prodigious small-dollar fundraiser, and could out-Trump like no other politician has been able to,” he explained.
In reality, if AOC is the best the Democratic party has to offer then they’re in big trouble and, conversely, if they secure power with someone like that at the helm – America is in big trouble.
