I'm genuinely confused as to why the Democrats think that Biden is their only option and that actually having a primary would automatically hand the election to their White Whale, the Orange Man.

We know they have Newsom, Pritzker, Whitmer, et al.—wouldn't it be wiser to let grandpa serve out his days and let one of these other fresher faces run next year?

13 mos from Election Day (when Biden will be 82), how is this their best option? How will this man be able to campaign and when was the last time he sat for a long, adversarial interview?

Is the strategy to just count on the MSM to be their campaign team, Big Tech to be their funders and censors, and all the big Blue cities (who vote massively for any D) to ring up massive vote totals?

Seems kinda risky to me...

My Democrat friends are a hoot. They for some reason have adopted a belief that denial, obfuscation and deflection are good enough to keep winning elections. I tell them that without the pandemic, it is very strongly probably that Trump would still be president and the Senate and House in GOP hands.

And now we have the terrible, terrible Biden performance that they also deny, obfuscate and deflect.

They can only hope that the GOP keeps demonstrating such political weakness.

As a non-American I'm perplexed by the comment 'so infirm that he is obliged to resign'... Seriously, he was demented over a year ago. In all morality (not that there's any in politics), the man/party/system should have been removed. Frankly, it's internationally a completely embarrassment.

I’m surprised Biden’s poll numbers aren’t lower...like zero. Are they not seeing what the rest of the world is seeing?!

One problem that Democrats make is assuming that once somebody is on their side, they will remain there. Sure, the platform attracted a lot of minorities in 2005, but those people aren't really down for screwing up their kids.........

Of course, Democrats now take those people for granted because they don't understand that we're all individuals.

I think this also shows that the corporate media isn't as powerful as they believe they are. They keep spinning and downplaying Bidens problems yet even their audience still answers in polls he's not really fit for a second term. And the "inflation is a conspiracy theory, you're just bad with money" spin on the horrific economy is also not catching on. They have long lost control of the narrative. And Big Tech is distancing itself from censorship now, they can't really afford to piss off such a large segment of the population.

Honestly I think if one looks at all of the last 7 years (and I'm a 2 time Trump voter) the average (they do exsit) American citizen is tired. Tired of the constant victimhood BS day after day, tired of race baiters, parents being told they don't know whats right for their children, tired of politicians & bureaucrats not being held to account for lies and slander, tired of being told they are "wrong" to say 2+2 = 4, tired of their hard earned monies being throw to those who "chose" to go to college and study basket weaving and are too lazy to get a fucking job to pay off their debts, tired of unprovable Climate Change garbage being pushed by elitist & shills, tired of economic genuis's who can't find their collective asses if it was handed to them, tired of wars that slaughter innocents and tired of being sick and fucking tired.

The age thingy ? There are a lot of sharp minded 80+ year olds, the current one in the WH was never sharp, he's really fucking stupid actually. He was installed.

Hope 2024 brings the change America needs and ends the bull shit.

I have a nagging concern about the polls showing extreme dissatisfaction with Biden and Dem policies. We assume that it’s because the Dems have gone off the deep end crazy. But how many are giving negative reviews because they are upset that the Dems haven’t gone far enough with the lunacy?

Learned a new word, today: myrmidons. Thanks.

I am done with the duopoly. It's been criminally rigged against ANY political alternative since the late 19th century. The entrenching with computerized rigging has been the final nail.

Ex-Leftist, here. What I call the Synthetic Left signed over their everlovin' worthless minds and souls to Satan when COVID hit. I don't have time for stupid, let alone authoritarian, language-mangling, evil stupid.

Thing is, this shift in sentiment hasn't caused me to become a righty, either. But I sure do appreciate a refreshingly different view of the political landscape.

Thanks.

The never Trumpers, and I'm sure there are a lot left, will never vote for him, and If Kamala winds up president, so be it. I think they are going to vote for Biden and should he win, and die, and Kamela takes over, well I think most democrats know neither is running that show. They'll vote for their party especially if Trump runs. Although one never knows and people may have become so fed up with his open border policy and his "liberal" position people may very well have had enough and one can only wish that is true. I can't believe I was a former democrat because now I loath them. During the Trump years they sucked up liberalism in it's most extreme forms and now they're stuck with it, like their open door policy, and I only hope there is pay back for them for being such phony SOB's. If they were really liberal they would have wanted to get along with Russia, and not pushed a war that has already killed hundreds of thousands. Instead they would have taken Trump's lead in regard to getting along with Russia.

Brad, I love this and all your posts. Also you and I often have the same basic thoughts in our comments, although yours are multiple times better written than mine, always. One slight difference of opinion we have is in regards to Biden, and I say this with all due humility, and with all that "I could be wrong" stuff, but although he is by far the worst president in my 60 years on earth, and most sane people cannot believe how cognitively frail he has been since he was fraudulently installed into office in 2020 with a variety of tactics that were primarily employed under the cover of Covid mitigation procedures that - as you've written about so well in the past - were a breathtaking disaster on every single possible front, and his rapid decline since the completely planned and staged Jan 6 ruckus in D. C. can no longer be hidden from the public, oh and Harris, ha, Biden will not be on the ticket in '24. Again, I write this knowing I come off pompous, but there is zero chance he will be running next year and what happens "after this fact is a fact" is beyond me. Keep on rocking Brad, your writing is awesome!

What if Biden has a heart attack or stroke a month before the general election? Would anyone believe that Harris with a -17 rating could beat ANY of the Republicans running. They are already maneuvering to place Gavin Newsom in line to replace the stiff. People from other state little realize that Captain Clueless would be worse than the marijuana soused social climber as he actually has an agenda that bears NO relationship to any know reality & he talks it up as though drugs gangs don’t really control major swaths of his state, as though homelessness is a problems $800,000 per unit built housing will solve, that the state has enough water to continue agriculture has it has been, that solar & wind will solve all their power needs, that marijuana with a 15% minimum THC content is safe for the general public to use, that they can build high speed rail across California & magically solve all the transport woes if only the federal government would give them a few trillion dollars more. & so on. This governor passed an additional 60 cent per gallon gas tax on top of their other gas tax & then a few months later launched a special government task force(paid by who?) to find out why Californians were paying so much more for gasoline that people in other states. His views on immigration really amount to bring in more so he can completely replace the black American population in California with them. Hypocrite, racist, radical & clueless. He is Captain Clueless to the Democrat’s rescue come the presidential election. His only saving grace is that he looks & talks like the people most likely to vote for him.
