The reality of 2024 is beginning to set in on Democrats and they are reacting with great concern.
They’re starting to figure out that Biden is already too old and Kamala Harris has poll numbers that are even worse than his.
Democrats have a serious problem here.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
‘Kamala Harris Can’t Win’: Democrats Already Panicking About 2024
Democrats are already starting to panic about the 2024 presidential election, New York magazine reports.
As well they should be. President Joe Biden’s approval rating is in the tank, and his party appears to be on the verge of a crushing defeat in November, when Biden will celebrate his 80th birthday. Democratic leaders and activists are struggling to reconcile the fact that A) Biden is way too old and decrepit to run for president again, and B) He’s probably the best candidate they have.
Vice President Kamala Harris is even less popular than Biden and has consistently embarrassed herself in public, raising serious questions about her ability to run a competent campaign at the national level. Nevertheless, she is widely viewed as the frontrunner to win the party’s nomination if Biden doesn’t seek reelection—a prospect that has some Democrats terrified, and understandably so.
“Biden has to run again, because he desperately has to keep Trump out of the White House and defend our democracy,” one Democrat told New York. “And I have no doubts Kamala Harris can’t win.” If Biden doesn’t run, however, the party’s obsessive devotion to identity politics would likely preclude most other candidates from challenging a black woman for the nomination.
Democrats might be stuck with him. What are they going to do if he insists on running?
“Democrats may feel gratitude to Biden for vanquishing Trump and love some of his work as president – and at the same time retain an intense feeling of unease about a visibly aging 79-year-old whose GOP opponents are only growing more extremist” https://t.co/skVY8vSSlg

Even if they somehow manage to get Biden out of the picture, how are they going to get rid of Kamala?
