Never trust a poll at face value. They’re worthless. What you CAN trust is the message that was crafted through the poll, and the latest message from the powers-that-be who released a WaPo-ABC poll is that Joe Biden’s political career is over. 2020 was the last election he was able to steal. Democrats are going with someone else.
The poll shows Donald Trump ahead by 10-points. A double-digit lead at this stage of election season before Trump is even officially the nominee is shocking… unless we take into account the likelihood that someone else is going to be the Democrat nominee.
For their part, the Washington Post attempted to downplay the results. According to Fox News:
The Washington Post and ABC released the poll Sunday, which found that if the 2024 presidential election were held today, Trump would win 52% to 42% over Biden. Respondents also held a poor view of Biden’s handling of the economy and the U.S.-Mexico border, in addition to his age.
The Post downplayed the results of its own poll after it showed Trump with such a commanding lead, however.
“The sizable margin of Trump’s lead in this survey is significantly at odds with other public polls that show the general election contest a virtual dead heat,” the Post wrote Sunday. “The difference between this poll and others, as well as the unusual makeup of Trump’s and Biden’s coalitions in this survey, suggest it is probably an outlier.”
It certainly sounds like WaPo is upset by all of this. But they’re not upset that Biden is losing. They’re upset that Trump is winning. There’s a difference.
All of this adds fuel to the rapidly growing fire among Democrats that someone else needs to replace him. They don’t want Kamala Harris, who most Democrats dislike even more than Biden. Some say it’ll be Michelle Obama. Others are pointing to Gavin Newsom. Whoever they insert, it’ll be the choice of the powers-that-be, not the voters or even the DNC.
Joe Biden will go down in history as one of the worst presidents we’ve ever had. But before Republicans cheer, let’s remember that a fresh face replacing an old and tired one can do wonders to rejuvenate the Democrat base. After spending the last three years attacking Biden, we’ll be facing someone who is entering the fray unscathed.
