Democrats in the Senate are terrified by latest Presidential polling

The Democrats hope for a united party, and a Biden victory are quickly fading in light of reality. 

Much of the left-wingers are actually shaking in their boots. 

Biden’s polling looks worse than anyone expected, and the Democrats don’t know what to do. 

President Biden’s popularity is taking a hit among Democrats, especially in crucial battleground states, where he is trailing former President Trump, raising concerns about the party’s future in the upcoming 2024 elections.

While Democrats insist that Biden will remain the party’s nominee, there’s a growing acknowledgment that Biden’s age, 80, might be a significant problem for voters. 

Many Democrat senators, including Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), are urging Biden to adopt a more progressive and forceful political message to appeal to young voters. 

Biden’s current standing among voters aged 18 to 29, essentially tied with Trump, is far from the overwhelming support he enjoyed in 2020.

However, despite concerns, Democrat lawmakers are still hoping that Biden can turn things around by emphasizing his accomplishments and highlighting Trump’s flaws. 

Some, like Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.), believe Biden has a compelling story that hasn’t been effectively communicated to the public yet.

But Trump’s surprising lead in key battleground states, despite facing multiple federal charges, has left many Democrats bewildered. 

Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) expressed his hope for Biden’s numbers to improve but acknowledged the challenges ahead.

One significant worry for Democrats is the perception of Biden’s age and mental sharpness among voters. 

The poll revealed that 71 percent of registered voters think Biden is too old to be President, and 62 percent doubt his mental acuity, posing a significant challenge for his candidacy.

Former President Obama’s senior political strategist, David Axelrod, has raised concerns about Biden’s decision to run for a second term, given the alarming poll results. 

While no Democrat Senator is openly questioning Biden’s candidacy, Axelrod’s warning underscores the gravity of the situation.

Despite these concerns, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer remains confident in Biden’s victory. 

However, many Democrat senators, like Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), emphasize the party’s accomplishments, such as the bipartisan infrastructure package and the expanded child tax credit, to bolster their confidence in the upcoming elections.

While some senators draw parallels to President Obama’s situation in 2011, where his poll numbers weren’t favorable a year before his reelection, the uncertainty surrounding Biden’s candidacy remains a significant challenge for Democrats, particularly in battleground states.

As the political landscape continues to shift, Democrats find themselves at a crossroads, desperately seeking a strategy that will reinvigorate their base, appeal to young voters, and address voters’ concerns about Biden’s age and mental sharpness. 

But the bottom line is . . . they’re floundering. 

The 2024 elections are looming large, and the Democrats path to victory seems to be narrowing.
