In December, President Joe Biden suggested that “probably 50” Democrats could defeat Donald Trump in the 2024 election, despite trailing Trump in polls and facing low approval ratings.
While several Democratic figures have been mentioned as potential nominees, including Vice President Kamala Harris, speculation about Michelle Obama and concerns about Biden’s unpopularity persist.
Despite this, Democratic operatives assert that Biden will remain the nominee, emphasizing the need for party unity to secure victory over Trump. (Trending: Trans Athlete Breaks College Record After Joining Women’s Team)
“Biden currently trails Trump by more than 3 points in the RealClearPolitics polling average, and his approval rating is once again ticking down after hovering around 38% over the past year,” the report noted.
“Biden will head into his fourth year in office with the lowest approvals of any president at this point in their term, dating back to Jimmy Carter,” the report added.
“There is zero chance. There are many ways to improve this country and build a better world, and I continue to do many of them, from working with young people to helping families lead healthier lives,” Michelle Obama stated in 2020.
“But sitting behind the Oval Office desk will never be one of them. It’s not for me.”
“The guy who thinks we’re polluting the blood of Americans these days. He cut taxes for the wealthy and big corporations, shipped good paying jobs overseas, shrank public investment in infrastructure,” Biden said of Trump.
“Decades of discrimination and trickle-down economics have left communities like this one behind, but today, we’re making sure Milwaukee is coming back and all the way coming back.”
“It’s an interesting thought experiment, and one that very possibly previews our party heading into 2028, but this just isn’t going to happen,” a Democratic operative said.
“President Biden will be our nominee, and I expect the full party, regardless of disagreements about Israel, to rally around him to defeat Trump.”
“Biden will be the nominee because we’ve seen this story before,” another operative said.
“We saw what happened in 2016 when some people weren’t jazzed about Secretary Clinton, and that let Trump walk in the front door of the White House. We won’t make that mistake again.”
“If it isn’t Biden, we lose. It’s just flat out too late to jump ship, simple as that,” a third added.
