Skip to comments.Democrats Quietly Search for an Alternative to Biden in 2024
Posted on 05/24/2022 2:55:33 PM PDT by NohSpinZone
As they look toward 2024, Democrats are unified in their conception of doom: the restoration of Trump, joined down-ballot by anti-democratic Republicans who will end fair elections and any hope of combating climate change. But Democratic divisions remain over how to prevent that dismal future. Many are preoccupied by the midterms, which are less predictable now that post-Roe fury may well send more pro-choice voters to the polls, and others are focused on the even more immediate threat of rampaging inflation. Hanging over it all is a genuine debate over whether Biden’s being on or off the ticket is the best course of action. “Is this a real question?” one disbelieving White House aide asked me on a recent evening when I brought up what might happen in 2024. “Great question,” one of that staffer’s close friends high up in the administration said the next morning, nodding enthusiastically. It’s possible to read the actions of nearly a dozen Democrats as putting themselves in position to run on the off chance that Biden doesn’t — or can’t. That also didn’t happen to any of his recent predecessors.
Imagining an alternative is far from just a D.C. parlor game. Only three in ten Americans think Biden will seek a second term, according to a recent Wall Street Journal poll. That survey also revealed that even among Democrats, a group that likes and approves of Biden in general, fewer than half are sure the president is planning on round two and a third outright think he isn’t. Biden can’t discredit the findings; the data was gathered in part by the research firm led by his own pollster, John Anzalone.

How about a Hillary/Harris ticket?
Well, what about that knockout of a broad who’s fat ass is sitting in the VPs office?
No good huh democrats?
“anti-democratic Republicans who will end fair elections”
These bastard stole the Precedency and the Senate and they write BS like that.
They’ll just cheat harder.
“joined down-ballot by anti-democratic Republicans who will end fair elections”
My my. They sure love to project.
In North Carolina we can see Dem Governor Cooper quietly positioning himself to go for Biden’s job in 2024.
At least Cooper did right in the Nifong case. I’ll give him that.
How about Kamala Harris.
If they don’t let her get the nomination which she is ‘entitled’ to (I’m borrowing that from the Hillary campaign in 2016), then...
they should be branded racists and misogynists.
Herr Cooper? His policies moved us to a free state. He was a great and successful dictator during covid… Until his new Lt Governor, Mark Robinson got elected.
Oh she’s the supposed front-runner. You see, it’s only because of misogyny and racism that she gets such bad media coverage. It has nothing to do with her sounding like a filibustering 5th grader trying to fill a word quota in her oral book report.
Mike Pence is available.
Just tell him same deal as the last time.
I’m still waiting for the Weiner/Holder ticket. Or the Franken/Stein ticket.
Way things are going it’ll probably be Beetlejuice.
Make America Chicago Again?
I’ll sum it up. Bidden wont make it to the next election. High Heals Kamala won’t make it any farther.
They want Gruesome Newsom but don’t want to announce that too early.
Lightfoot even sounds indian. So there’s that too
Democrats are going to get ‘together’ with her, and work ‘together’ with her, to get her to forget about the presidency altogether.
