As the midterm elections draw near and voters focus on the national senate and house races, rumors regarding the potential presidential contenders for the important 2024 election are floating outside of the debate.
While the elections for the Senate are close, Republicans anticipate defeating Democrats in the House, and the next round of campaigning will be for the presidency.
President Joe Biden’s popularity has been declining almost since the day he took office. His scores have fallen as a result of physical signs of weakness, speech errors that raise concerns about his mental state, and poor decisions. Biden has declared that he will run in 2924, but insiders are scoffing, and others are outright denying it.
According to polls, including a recent ABC News study, only 35% of left-leaning voters would favor Joe Biden becoming the nominee again in 2024, while more than 50% of the same group would prefer it be someone else. This supports the idea that Democrats are avoiding President Joe Biden.
Democrats appear to be grooming more candidates to run, as prominent liberals have made public declarations of their intentions. Gavin Newsom, Bernie Sanders, AOC, and others are the subject of rumors.
In the previous week, Vice President Kamala Harris was even mentioned by President Biden as a potential candidate.
Harris and her Jewish husband Doug Emhoff were in attendance when Biden made his remarks at a Rosh Hashanah celebration in Washington.
Emhoff spoke about the Jewish community before returning the microphone to the president. He did so after making a comment about how he is the first “Second Husband” and the first Jewish “Second Spouse.”
Then Biden said, “And Doug is right. You’re the first, but – Kamala often says – you won’t be the last. Kamala won’t be the last woman to be Vice-President – or President.” There was cheers when it was said that Harris might be on the lengthy list of Democratic presidential candidates.
According to Biz Pac Review:
Political consultant Dick Morris says he is seeing, “more and more signs” that are pointing toward one candidate he sees “dusting off Bill’s playbook…”
Those familiar with Morris know him for being an advisor to former President Bill Clinton. So, as he joined WABC’s John Catsimatidis on Sunday as part of “Cat’s Roundtable,” it came as little surprise when he revisited his prediction that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may be eyeing a third crack at the presidency.
After suggesting the week prior that “some crazy radical like Gavin Newsom, Bernie Sanders…even AOC herself,” might be at the forefront of Democrats’ choices, the pundit chimed in ahead of the 45-minute mark in the audio below with recent comments that he assessed, “are all signals that she is gonna be the moderate candidate for president.”
“I see more and more signs that Hillary’s going to run. Bill…said yesterday that there’s a limit to the number of people the U.S. can absorb. And Hillary a week ago…said Americans do not believe in open borders.”
The president had previously been quoted as saying, “There is a limit to how many migrants any society can take without severe disruption and assistance, and our system is based much more on the assumption that things would be more normal.” The president had been speaking with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria at the time.

Similarly, the secretary had appeared on MSNBC where she argued against Gov. Ron DeSantis’ transport of illegal aliens to Martha’s Vineyard saying, “So many other Americans–I happen to believe still the majority of Americans–are good-hearted and generous and when people end up on their doorstep in need, they’re going to respond. They’ll feed them and house them and the kids in the AP Spanish class will be let out of high school so they can go and translate. That’s the kind of American spirit that we try to celebrate at the Clinton Global Initiative…nobody wants open borders who has any idea of how government and countries work.” CONTINUE READING…
