Biden’s Election Hopes Shattered

Joe Biden

In a surprising blow to Democrats and Liberals, Biden’s hopes for becoming re-elected in 2024 have been shattered. A key demographic – that helped him get elected in 2020 – is the Black vote. Evidently, Black voters are not standing with Joe Biden anymore, which could be a fatal blow to his next campaign.

Independent voter Kim Brown and Republican voter David Sypher shared their insights on “FOX & Friends,” highlighting why Republicans might gain more traction with Black voters in the upcoming election.

“The messaging isn’t resonating like it used to,” expressed Brown, signaling a shift in sentiment among Black voters. A recent New York Times podcast episode featured Black voices expressing hesitations and concerns over supporting Biden’s re-election, citing his age and perceived unfulfilled promises to the Black community.

Sypher echoed these sentiments, stating that Biden’s message is no longer resonating, creating a perception of neglect among Black voters. The border crisis, impacting cities like Chicago, has further fueled dissatisfaction, with residents expressing frustration over diverted funds from low-income communities to accommodate migrants.

Concerns about Kamala Harris were also raised, with Brown noting that many people don’t take her seriously, criticizing her performance in national TV interviews. While not ruling out African-American support for Biden, Brown emphasized that the choice of his running mate would be pivotal.

The discussion touched on rising crime, the migrant crisis, and inflation as factors diminishing Biden’s re-election prospects. Sypher argued that these challenges disproportionately affect lower-income communities, potentially leading to increased support for the Republican party.

Brown pointed out the perceived absence of former President Barack Obama addressing the crime issue in Chicago, expressing frustration with the deteriorating safety conditions. She emphasized a growing loss of faith in the federal government and the political system among the general population.

The New York Times-Siena College poll revealed record-high disapproval among Black and Hispanic voters in key battleground states, posing a potential threat to Biden’s re-election bid. The poll also indicated a shift in Black voter sentiment, with 22% expressing support for Donald Trump in a hypothetical 2024 rematch.

Concerns about Biden’s standing among Black voters were reinforced by a Times report titled “As Black Voters Drift to Trump, Biden’s Allies Say They Have Work to Do.” Democratic strategists acknowledged the erosion of support among Black voters as a worrisome trend.

The next year holds significance for Biden to shore up his standing, with potential implications for the Democratic coalition. As Black voters express frustration with unmet promises and dissatisfaction with Biden’s leadership, the landscape of voter support in the 2024 election remains uncertain.
