Several Democrats want President Joe Biden replaced in 2024, with one prominent party member calling the president “deeply unpopular,” according to Politico.
Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ former president campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, told Politico there will “be a progressive challenger.”
“Progressives are ultimately ascendant. And if nothing else, a progressive running who gets a lot of support will demonstrate that the ideas that the progressive movement embraces are, in fact, popular,” he reportedly said.
Co-founder of the progressive No Excuses PAC and former communications director for Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Corbin Trent, said Biden may get “demolished” in the midterms.
“He’s deeply unpopular. He’s old as shit. He’s largely been ineffective, unless we’re counting judges or whatever the hell inside-baseball scorecard we’re using,” Trent said, according to Politico. “And I think he’ll probably get demolished in the midterms. People will smell opportunity, and D.C. is filled with people who want to be president.”
