Joe Biden and the Democrat Party have a huge problem on their hands.
Biden had been receiving warning signs for months.
But now Joe Biden learned some bad news that will leave him a quivering wreck.
Minnesota Congressman Dean Phillips made it official that he is running in the Democratic primary against Joe Biden.
For over a year Phillips kept dropping hints he was likely to challenge Biden.
Phillips could see the same data everyone else did.
Even though the Democrats overperformed in the midterm elections the exit polls showed that two-thirds of Americans didn’t want Joe Biden to seek a second term.
Those numbers didn’t get better over the course of the next year.
A recent AP-NORC poll showed just 37 percent of Democrats want Joe Biden to seek a second term.
CNN had similar results, finding that two-thirds of Democrats want a different candidate with 82 percent of those Democrats saying they didn’t care who the alternative to Joe Biden was.
They just wanted any other live body that was a registered Democrat.
In an interview with CBS’s left-wing cheerleader Robert Costa, Phillips cited polls showing Donald Trump leading Biden as to why he jumped in the race warning that Democrats face a disaster in 2024 unless they change course.
“I think President Biden has done a spectacular job for our country. But it’s not about the past. This is an election about the future,” Phillips told Costa. “I will not sit still. I will not be quiet in the face of numbers that are so clearly saying that we’re going to be facing an emergency next November.”
Phillips leaned into voter concerns over Biden’s age to make the case for his candidacy.
CNN’s poll found that 60 percent of Democrats think Biden’s age – he will turn 82 in 2024 – will keep him from defeating Trump.
“I think it’s time for a new generation. I think it’s time to pass the torch. And I say now. I think the time is now because I think four years from now it might be too late,” Phillips added.
Phillips plans to make his stand in New Hampshire.
That’s because Biden displaced New Hampshire as the first primary on the calendar angering Democrats and local residents who depended on the boost to the economy that occurred every four years when campaigns pumped tens of millions of dollars into the state for the “First in the Nation” primary.
Democrats complained New Hampshire – as well as Iowa – had too many white people.
Biden proposed making South Carolina the first primary because the state’s large population of black voters would make any primary challenge a daunting affair.
The Democratic National Committee agreed and made South Carolina the primary kickoff.
But New Hampshire is running the Democratic primary on the same day as the Republicans – who kept the normal Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada quartet of early voting states – in January.
Biden’s name won’t be on the ballot, but now his supporters will have to wage a write-in campaign.
Should Phillips win – or even come close – it will serve as a major embarrassment to Biden and hobble him heading into the general election.
In 1992 President George H.W. Bush never recovered from barely defeating primary challenger Pat Buchanan 52 to 37 percent in the New Hampshire primary.
That November, Bush only won 39 percent of the popular vote and lost the presidency to Bill Clinton.
A poor showing in New Hampshire against Phillips could portend a similar fate for Biden.
