Almost Half of Voters Think Joe Biden Will be Replaced as the Democratic Nominee.

It’s not going to happen.

In spite of how much the American people would rather see two other people running, the seemingly inevitable rematch between former President Trump and President Joe Biden is all but upon us. Both candidates have convincingly begun to cement their status at the top of their Parties, and it’s a matter of time before their entire focus is shifted to the other.

And yet, apparently nearly half of voters seem to think there’s a chance it’s going to change.

Samantha Latson with Politico writes:

“Nearly half of American voters think it’s at least somewhat likely that President Joe Biden will be replaced as the Democratic nominee because of his health, and a third believe Donald Trump could ultimately lose the Republican nomination as a result of his extensive legal troubles, according to a new poll conducted by Monmouth University.

Questions about Biden’s age and mental stamina have intensified since last week’s release of Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report that described Biden’s memory as “poor.”

The study says the Hur report didn’t shift public opinion on whether Biden mishandled classified documents that were found in his home and a think tank office he uses, but it did reinforce the increased concern of Biden’s physical and mental health…”

Well…we know the effect of that report now, don’t we?

Unfortunately, as much as it might pain people to come to terms with, it shouldn’t even have to be said that we’re stuck with Joe Biden. But, I’m not sure this is how th eDemocratic Party ever intended for this election to unfold.

Kamala Harris was supposed to be the one, right?

She was selected as the Vice President with the hope that she would be ready to take the reins in the 2024 election, and Biden could step aside. Seamless transition for the Democratic Party elite, and the corporate entities that run it. She never exactly helped her case though, did she?

I am thoroughly convinced that if Kamala Harris had polled better, Biden would not have run for reelection. But now here we are, with the President who said he was not going to run for reelection gearing up for a long year of campaigning on a record and platform that’s lackluster to say the least. Kamala blew her chance, and now we’ve got a poll showing nearly half of Americans are so desperate for an alternative they’ve convinced themselves that Biden’s going to be replaced.

If that doesn’t sum up politics here in the good old United States of America these days, I’m not sure what does.

Frankly, I’m wondering what the frustration levels are going to look like in 2028. We think they’re bad now? I’m not sure we’re prepared for what’s coming next.
