Joe Biden thought Democrats were behind him for another Presidential run.
Party insiders pointed out one major weakness.
And Joe Biden was furious when Democrats revealed this surprising truth about Ron DeSantis.
President Joe Biden’s political future looked murky at best heading into the Midterm elections.
Top Congressional Democrats refused to endorse another Presidential bid and some even called for him to step aside in 2024.
Democrats and the corporate-controlled media were angling for Biden to be replaced at the top of the ticket in the next Presidential election.
The stage was set to use a bad performance by Democrats in the Midterm elections as an excuse to pull the plug on another Biden Presidential campaign.
Pushing aside Biden would allow Democrats to wipe the slate clean for 2024 after a disastrous start to his Presidency.
But Democrats’ unexpected success in the Midterm elections boosted Biden’s political standing and re-election chances.
The big winner in the Midterm elections for Republicans was Florida Governor Ron DeSantis after a landslide victory in his re-election race.
Speculation is growing that DeSantis could be a top contender for the GOP Presidential nomination if he enters the race.
Now, Democrat Party insiders are hitting the panic button about a potential DeSantis Biden matchup in the 2024 Presidential election.
Two unnamed Democrat political operatives told CNN that they were “uneasy” about Biden’s chances to win against DeSantis or a younger Republican.
Another anonymous Democrat told CNN that Biden’s chances against DeSantis are “not great.”
Joe Biden will be nearly 82-years-old during the 2024 Presidential election while DeSantis would be 46 years old.
Democrats are worried that DeSantis would run circles around Biden on the campaign trail in 2024.
According to Democrats, the one issue that consistently comes up in focus groups about Biden is the President’s age.
Biden “has his work cut out for him in terms of having folks believe he can command this job for four more years,” said a person familiar with the focus group research.
Given Biden’s clear mental decline and age, a potential 2024 matchup with Ron DeSantis would be a clear contrast between the two candidates.
Even with Democrats’ success in the Midterm elections, some in the party are still calling for him to step aside.
Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN) was the first Democrat in Congress to call for Biden not to run for re-election.
He said that Democrats need to “create pathways for new generations of leaders.”
“There’s a pragmatic element of this too. I believe the country will be in a place where they’ll be looking for a new generation as well,” said Phillips.
Joe Biden’s age is going to be a growing problem for Democrats going into the 2024 Presidential election.
