The Democrat Party’s nightmare scenario about the next election took one step closer to becoming a reality.
There is utter panic on the left.
And that’s because Joe Biden got the bad news about 2024 that will reduce Democrats to tears.
West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin was one of the most endangered incumbents in the 2024 cycle.
Donald Trump twice won West Virginia with 69 percent of the vote and with Trump likely at the top of the ticket next November, Manchin knew that the game he played of fooling voters into thinking he was a conservative but voting like a socialist – Manchin supported gun control, the Green New Deal, and constantly raising the debt ceiling – was finished.
Rather than run and get pasted by his GOP challenger who would ride Trump’s coattails, Manchin put out a video calling it quits.
“I’ve made one of the toughest decisions of my life,” Manchin declared, “and decided that I will not be running for re-election to the United States Senate.”
However, Manchin was not retiring totally from politics.
In his video, Manchin strongly hinted that his next move would be the long-rumored step of running on the third-party “No Labels” ticket next year.
“But what I will be doing is traveling the country, and speaking out to see if there is an interest in creating a movement to mobilize the middle and bring Americans together,” Manchin added.
Manchin said Americans are tired of “the growing divide between Democrats and Republicans” that Manchin claimed is “paralyzing Congress” while “worsening our nation’s problems.”
To the West Virginians who have put their trust in me and fought side by side to make our state better – it has been an honor of my life to serve you. Thank you. My statement on my political future: pic.twitter.com/dz8JuXAyTL

“No Labels” is a center-left group that raised $70 million to secure ballot access for a mythical so-called “unity ticket” where an allegedly moderate Democrat – like Manchin – would run with a RINO.
And, sure enough, hours after Manchin declared he was finished with the Senate a former staffer for retiring Utah RINO Mitt Romney filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission for a committee to draft Romney and Manchin into the 2024 race.
I’m fully convinced the No Labels ticket is going to be Romney/Manchin. Both retiring from the Senate, but vaguely gesturing their work is not done. Both going on TV together. And a committee formed with the FEC just hours before Manchin’s announcement to “Draft Romney Manchin” https://t.co/c6aZhzWl1o pic.twitter.com/mbTRCPgmRk

In 2020 Joe Biden won because Democrats limited the ability of third parties to appear on the ballot in key states like Wisconsin.
A binary choice led to voters who disapproved of both Biden and Donald Trump to cast a ballot for the Democrat.
But now Joe Biden is wildly unpopular.
And if a “No Labels” ticket of Romney and Manchin appears on swing-state ballots, voters who disapprove of both Trump and Biden could find another option.
Joe Biden only won the Electoral College by 44,000 votes across three states.
If even a tiny fraction of voters across the country flip from Biden to a Romney-Manchin ticket it could spell doom for the Democrats.
