2024 Election

Despite Everything, Voters Prefer Trump to Biden

Featured image After years of non-stop hysteria from the Left, you would think Donald Trump would be–politically speaking–deader than a doornail. And yet, poll after poll shows him beating Joe Biden in 2024. The latest comes from Emerson: BREAKING: Trump lead Biden by 5 points in 2024 Presidential Election. Trump's lead INCREASED by 3 points from Emerson's May poll (06/28-29) (R) Donald Trump 44% (+5)(D) Joe Biden 39%https://t.co/zWmnUxqFyY — InteractivePolls (@IAPolls2022) July »

Biden Brigade Misfiring on All Cylinders

Featured image Biden today spoke of “aborting a child” in this first clip. A what? Child, you say. Hmmm. Joe Biden: "abort a child"pic.twitter.com/Kxr2D537LZ — RNC Research (@RNCResearch) July 1, 2022 Of course, there’s the old Biden you can also take in: “I do not view abortion as a choice and a right; I think it’s always a tragedy. And I think that it should be rare and safe. And I think »

The Answer for Democrats Is . . . No, No Way!

Featured image It is not news that Democrats are in deep trouble in the upcoming midterm election, and the 2024 election doesn’t look too promising either. With the obvious disabilities of (P)resident Biden, and the obvious unfitness of Kamala Harris to succeed him, and the angst after the Dobbs decision, Democrats are looking around for a plausible Plan B. And there are Democrats who think the answer to their 2024 problems is »

Biden Is Doomed and Has Nowhere to Run

Featured image Yesterday’s Rasmussen survey of likely voters finds that 57% consider Joe Biden’s performance on the economy to be “poor.” That strikes me as a death knell: there is no way a president viewed in such a negative light on the economy can be re-elected. No matter how unappetizing their alternatives–Kamala Harris? Pete Buttigieg?–the Democrats have no choice but to put Biden out to pasture and find someone else for 2024. »

The (Very) Early Line

Featured image Let us pause on this holiday weekend (Father’s Day today, Juneteenth tomorrow) to bask in the glory that is our supremely eloquent president: How can anyone think this can go on much longer? If you look around very closely, you can find a few perceptive Democrats who are worried that Democrats aren’t just looking at a bad election this year, but also in 2024, when the Senate map is much »

Move On? Please!

Featured image This morning Donald Trump emailed a “Statement” to his supporters about the Alabama Senate race. While nothing he said was surprising, I did find it clarifying: Last year I endorsed Mo Brooks for the U.S. Senate because I thought he was a Fighter, especially when it came to the Rigged and Stolen Presidential Election of 2020. The evidence is irrefutable. Then, out of nowhere, and for seemingly no reason, Mo »

Who’s next: The Times does Biden

Featured image The New York Times has posted the Biden variant of the “Dump Feinstein” campaign that Steve has been tracking. In an alert to subscribers, the Times directs readers to Reid Epstein and Jennifer Medina’s story on the “Democratic whispers” that perhaps Biden should step aside in 2024 (and announce his decision to do so after the midterms). This just in: Democrats fear he may not be up to the task. »

Your J-6 Hearings Drinking Game

Featured image So the J-6 committee prime-time hearing show trial is under way, but I can’t live-blog it, as it is cocktail hour out here on the Left Coast, followed by dinner, and I have a plump chicken on the rotisserie as I speak. I’ve been working on a drinking game for the “hearing,” though I am having some difficulty, and really need Ammo Grrrl’s help with this. First thing you need »

Latest from the Dump Feinstein Campaign

Featured image Looks like Dianne Feinstein isn’t taking the hint. So, New York Times, you’re up next! These days, however, Senator Dianne Feinstein, the trailblazing Democratic power broker who has served in the Senate for 30 years, is far from the towering presence she once was on the American political stage. At 88, Ms. Feinstein sometimes struggles to recall the names of colleagues, frequently has little recollection of meetings or telephone conversations, »

Pompeo For President [Updated]

Featured image Last night, Center of the American Experiment held our Annual Dinner. It was a great event, attended by 900 conservatives. Former CIA Director and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was our keynote speaker. He did a terrific job, and I had the privilege of beginning the question and answer session with a series of questions about current global trouble spots. I knew that Pompeo is a brilliant and exceptionally effective »

We Love You Joe, But Please Go Away!

Featured image These Rasmussen numbers are grim for the Democrats. To begin with, I have been saying for a while that the polls overstate Joe Biden’s actual standing with voters. There is no way that 40% or so of voters look at the carnage of the last year and say, “Heck of a job, Joe!” Many of those who claim to approve of Biden’s job performance are lying to pollsters to stick »

Ask not for whom the Klain clangs

Featured image Chief Biden White House daycare minder Ron Klain tactfully observes — “just FYI” — that President Macron’s win over Marine LePen in France’s presidential election yesterday came with Macron’s bargain basement approval rating. He leaves us to make of it what we will. Just fyi, President Biden’s bargain basement approval rating — 40 percent in the Morning Consult poll (of adults) to which Klain links, 33 percent in the Quinnipiac »

Our Geriatric Political Class Needs To Go

Featured image Yesterday Joe Biden gave a speech that ended like this. He is a frail, elderly man obviously suffering from dementia: After Biden finished his speech, he turned around and tried to shake hands with thin air and then wandered around looking confused pic.twitter.com/ZN00TLdUUo — Washington Free Beacon (@FreeBeacon) April 14, 2022 Joe Biden had been, for decades, a corrupt and incompetent pol. Today, he is either an extreme left-winger or »

The Dem Wipeout: It’s Not Just the Midterms

Featured image Steve has started a midterm wipeout watch series that I hope will have many more installments, culminating in November. I want to note this piece by a Democrat who warns his fellow Democrats that the wipeout likely will extend well beyond 2022. The author is Simon Bazelon, just a kid but a kid who can do arithmetic. He argues that even if the Democrats are able to maintain their average »

Got half a mind to ramble

Featured image President Biden’s public appearances in Europe this week have made for a dangerous spectacle of debility and senescence. It does not serve Biden’s interest to take notice. The media have therefore pitched in to airbrush the spectacle. That is the point Kyle Smith makes in the New York Post column “Media works overtime to clean up Joe Biden’s word salads.” In his Wall Street Journal Best of the Web column »

The Freeport Question of Our Time

Featured image The “Freeport Question” refers to Abraham Lincoln’s devastating question posed to Stephen Douglas in his second debate against Douglas on August 27, 1858, held in Freeport, Illinois. The question was seemingly simple: “Can the people of a Territory in any lawful way, against the wishes of any citizen of the United States, exclude slavery from their limits prior to the formation of a State constitution?” Douglas’s answer split the Democratic »

Do Republicans love Trump as they once did?

Featured image Recent polling shows they do not. However, it also shows that Republicans still like Trump enough to nominate him in 2024. Dan Balz notes that on the eve of the 2020 election, 54 percent of Republicans and independents who lean Republican said they considered themselves more a supporter of Trump than of the Republican Party, compared with 38 percent who said they considered themselves more a supporter of the Republican »
