February 27 – A recent Fox News poll has showed that 53 percent of Democrats are done with Biden and 78 percent of Americans are saying the economy is the real issue.
Inflation. Gasoline prices. Milk prices. Egg prices. All of that adds to the distaste Americans have with our president.
This is on the heels of theories that Biden might be announcing another presidential run in 2024.
Pat Ryan of NewsTalk 103.7FM said, “The direct person that leads this country is responsible for the mess that we are in here. He doesn’t make the next round of elections here. You can announce all you want. He is not going back into office.”
Attorney Clint Barkdoll pointed out, “This poll is not an outlier. You’ve been seeing polls since last fall and these are polls of solidly Democratic voters, Democratic super voters and they consistently show that the majority of Democrats do not want Biden to be their nominee for president next year.”
The Fox News poll showed only about a third of Democrat respondents say that they would support Biden as their nominee. The rest want someone else.
Barkdoll continued, “I’ve never seen a dynamic quite like this, either, in the sense that his approval ratings are very, very low, but yet it looks like he’s going to run again. You’re not hearing of any other Democrats emerging to run for this office. Even though all of these polls would clearly show there’s a huge lane for someone to get into a race and become the Democratic nominee.”
Jill Biden had an interview late last week where she suggested Biden is planning to announce his candidacy maybe in April.
Michele Jansen of NewsTalk 103.7FM noted, “They boxed themselves into a corner when it comes to who can run. They’re so focused on diversity, equity and inclusion that to turn away any of these check-boxed people that they have put into very high positions in the Democratic Party will just look ridiculous and hypocritical, especially to the people they’ve propagandized to, I would say, but have convinced that this is the most important thing. We have the military saying we have to put that at the forefront.”
Biden just passed an executive order to make equity the center piece of his cabinet.
Jansen wondered, “How do you pass up a Kamala Harris? How do you pass up a Pete Buttigieg when that’s what they’ve said the central values should be? They really have closed the door to a variety of really good candidates stepping up.”
Barkdoll said, “Is there someone that emerges, and I don’t know who it is, and do they have one of these they used to talk about the Sister Souljah moment that Bill Clinton had where he called out these activists within the party saying you’re going to lose the election for us. Hilary Clinton has been ringing that alarm bell for the last two years. She thinks the party has gone way too far left, but yet you look out there in the landscape now, there’s no obvious person that I could think of that might emerge to say I’m going to challenge Biden, try to get more into a mainstream mode for the Democrats. So the Democrats have some real challenges here, assuming that he does make his announcement in about six weeks if Jill Biden’s information is correct.”
Jansen said, “They have created a woke Frankenstein monster they can’t control now.”
Ryan wondered, “With the Supreme Court of the United States looking at the Biden bribe, this is all of us on the hook for $400 billion forgiving student loan debt. If he wins, the SCOTUS goes with Biden on this decision, is that enough to help him limp across the finish line for the second round? I don’t think so.”
Barkdoll agreed, “I don’t think so either. Now again, a lot’s going to depend on who the Republicans nominate as well. That remains to be seen.”
Tomorrow the US Supreme Court will hear arguments on the student loan forgiveness program.
Barkdoll said, “This is really dubious. How can this be legal? The president does not have the authority to do this. I think he is going to lose this case. We won’t get a decision on it until May or June.”
Tens of millions of Americans have already applied for the student loan relief, but it’s all on hold right now.
Barkdoll said, “Almost every legal expert that’s looked at this case, they think Biden is going to be in for a very tough argument before the Supreme Court.”
Jansen asked, “I wonder if it matters if he loses? What I’m saying is why aren’t there consequences for people like Biden who have taken a pledge to uphold the constitution to purposefully put forth these ideas that violate that. It’s almost a no-brainer that they’re going to have rule this unconstitutional and yet we see them do this over and over again and the reason I say it doesn’t matter if he loses because by then they’ll have the narrative and they’ll convince people it’s not about the constitution, it’s those evil conservatives. They kept you from getting what you deserved. You should vote for us because we’ll make sure you get what you deserve. That’s really the tactic here in my opinion.”
“I think that plays into this,” Barkdoll agreed. “There have been some other issues where I know Biden has even remarked we’re not sure if this will pass legal muster, but we’re going to sign it anyway. To me, that’s kind of an outrageous position, legally, for a president to take. You can almost write the script for this. Let’s say in May or June, the Supreme Court strikes this down. Then if Biden is out on the campaign trail this fall, this will be part of his stump speech, that I was fighting, we were really fighting to try to get you this student loan relief and don’t blame me that it didn’t get implemented. It was this conservative leaning Supreme Court. They’ll use that, maybe not only for fundraising, but certainly as an electoral strategy and you wonder, internally, has that been the strategy from the beginning of this? It could be.”
