After Democrats Quietly Scheme to Replace Biden – Look at Their Top 2 Picks Now for 2024

The Democratic Party’s dilemma is like the Titanic hitting the fateful iceberg, but with a completely clueless captain at the helm as the ship sinks.  Biden’s disastrous debate performance has sent shockwaves through the political landscape, and it’s no wonder that discussions and polls are already pointing to possible replacements.

The party is in chaos, with Biden stubbornly clinging to power while everyone else questions how long he can hang on. As the pressure mounts, two liberals are emerging as the top contenders to step in.

Trivia Question: Who was the first woman to serve in the U.S. Senate? (Answer at the end of the article)

Vice President Kamala Harris has seen a noticeable uptick in visibility, even before Biden’s debate debacle. She’s been making more public appearances and getting a lot of positive press.

It’s almost as if the media is prepping her for a bigger role. Some speculate she could take over the top spot on the ticket. This isn’t just idle chatter; there’s a growing sense that Biden might not even make it to the election.

From Fox News:
Now, some have speculated Harris could take over at the top of the ticket after Biden’s debate performance. The vice president’s visibility already started to increase before last week.

Media outlets have taken notice, leading to an avalanche of positive press for the vice president in recent months. Harris was called “Biden’s secret weapon in North Carolina” in a report in The Hill, which noted the vice president made her fifth trip to the battleground state last month and has led the outreach to Black communities, a largely Democratic demographic Biden has struggled to court in his rematch with former President Trump.

It seems the Democratic Party is working overtime to “boost” Harris, whether she’s ready or not. On Twitter, the man who coordinated Biden’s nomination in 2020, James Clyburn, is now adamant that Harris should not be sidelined.

“No. This party should not, in any way, do anything to work around Ms. Harris. We should do everything we can to bolster her whether she’s in second place or at the top of the ticket.”

Then there’s Michelle Obama, who seems to be the Democrats’ ace in the hole. A new poll from Reuters/Ipsos shows that she’s the only Democrat who could beat Trump in a head-to-head match-up. Imagine that: the former First Lady swooping in to save the day.

From The Hill:
Former first lady Michelle Obama is the only Democrat to beat former President Trump in a new poll Tuesday. The survey, conducted by Reuters/Ipsos, found Obama was the only Democrat with a lead on Trump in a hypothetical match-up, garnering 50 percent support to his 39 percent.

Meanwhile, the poll found, President Biden and Trump are neck and neck in a head-to-head match-up. They each received 40 percent of the vote.

Other Democrats floated as potential replacements to Biden in the poll included Vice President Harris, who received 42 percent in a head-to-head match-up with Trump, who received 43 percent.

So, what does this all mean for the Democratic Party? Well, they’re in a pickle, to say the least. On one hand, you have Harris, who has the visibility and the press backing her up, but is narrowly trailing Trump in the current polls.

On the other hand, you have Michelle Obama, who has the poll numbers and the public’s affection, but has repeatedly refused to consider taking the role. Both options are being seriously considered as the party grapples with Biden’s potential exit.

The situation is further complicated by Biden’s stubbornness. He’s not going down without a fight, but his poor debate performance and declining mental faculties are hard to ignore. Democrats are in a bind, trying to figure out how to make a smooth transition without causing a complete meltdown.

And let’s not forget the elephant in the room: Donald Trump. He’s watching this circus unfold with glee, probably munching on popcorn. The more disarray in the Democratic Party, the better his chances look for 2024. It’s almost too easy for him.

As the days go by, the pressure will only increase on Biden. The Democratic Party will need to make a decision sooner rather than later. Will they stick with their beleaguered leader, or will they make the bold move to replace him with Harris or Obama? The clock is ticking, and the 2024 election is just around the corner.

In conclusion, the Democratic Party is at a crossroads. Biden’s disastrous debate performance has thrown everything into disarray. Kamala Harris and Michelle Obama are emerging as the top contenders to replace him, but the party needs to act quickly and decisively. The next few weeks will be crucial in determining the future of the Democratic ticket.

Key Takeaways:

  • Kamala Harris and Michelle Obama are being considered as potential replacements for Biden.
  • Harris has increased her visibility and received positive media coverage.
  • Michelle Obama is the only Democrat currently leading Trump in polls.
