Sen. Elizabeth “You didn’t build that” Warren said Wednesday on MSNBC that President Biden “should be running” for reelection in 2024 and said that the “catnip” about the 2024 election has to stop, despite new polling that found 75% of Democrats would prefer a different candidate in 2024.
“I want to say this… we’ve got to stop the catnip about 2024. We are 100 days out from the midterm. And what happens in 2022, two more Democratic senators and we can get rid of the filibuster. And we can actually protect voting rights. We can make Roe v. Wade the law of the land. We can do even more on the climate crisis. We can actually make gun safety a priority.”
Asked about polling that shows “bad numbers” for the president, Warren brought the focus back to the midterms and getting rid of the filibuster: “We can do enormous good for the American people and that puts us in a position in 2024 where we have more opportunities to win. If we start getting tangled up on 2024, and fail to pay attention to business in 2022, that is not only going to hurt us in 2022, it is going to bite us on the rear end in 2024,” Warren said.
Here is the reality: Democrats are in deep doo-doo and they know it. The American people are waking up to the catastrophic damage that has been wrought by Democrat policies and by the administration of mentally and physically decrepit Joe Biden. Even if he manages to finish out the current term, survive a campaign, and launch a second term, no one wants him in the Oval Office anymore.
