In just the past several weeks alone, there have been growing signs of Joe Biden’s apparent mental deterioration.
For starters, his administration was forced to walk back a series of blunders he made about using chemical weapons against Russia, sending US troops to Ukraine, going to war with Russia, and regime change in Russia.
Then, during a recent speech in South Carolina, Biden was seen turning to his side and extending his hand for a handshake. Yet, there was no one in front of Biden or around him during this time.
Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), who previously served as a White House doctor under multiple administrations, continues to warn Americans about Biden. Jackson says the president is not in his right mind and thus a national security threat to the United States.
Meanwhile, as all this plays out, Biden is running around, claiming he can defeat former President Trump if the two have a rematch during the 2024 election, per The Blaze.
The Worst Take Ever on the 2024 Presidential Election
Apparently, during a recent meeting with former President Obama, Biden enthusiastically expressed his plans to run for another term in 2024.
What’s driving Biden’s enthusiasm, though, is his misguided view that running against Trump will be a smooth path to re-election. What the current president hasn’t mentioned are the various polls that show Trump leading him in a hypothetical 2024 matchup.
An unnamed source close to Biden says the president thinks no one else in the Democrat Party would have a chance against Trump. Ironically, Biden’s approval ratings today remain beneath where Trump’s poll numbers stood during the same time of his presidency.
This is another factor the current president does not appear to be taking into account.
The Problems With Biden’s Claims
Despite Biden’s clear interest in another run against Trump, there’s nothing about his presidency that indicates he could beat Trump.
For starters, multiple polls show that Biden’s average disapproval rating stands at about 52%.
Then, when Biden’s approval ratings are broken down by policy issues like inflation, the southern border, foreign policy, etc., he carries very high net negative approvals.
None of this is in keeping with someone who is set for re-election. Also, if economists’ predictions about a 2023 recession come to pass, this will be yet another strike against Biden.
Meanwhile, momentum on the GOP side for Trump to take another run at the White House in 2024 remains strong.
