Top Dem Officials In ‘Full-Blown Freakout’ Over Biden’s Re-Election Chances

(Congress Report) – Democrats are absolutely terrified by former President Donald Trump, which is why they’re deploying every possible political weapon they have at their disposal to try and knock him out of the 2024 election. And yet, every time they have attacked him, they’ve failed. Boy, that has to be frustrating, right? Imagine being so terrible at your job you can’t even cheat and win. That’s embarrassing. Like really embarrassing.

“Between Democratic district attorneys in Georgia and New York and vengeful Department of Justice special counsel Jack Smith, the Republican presidential candidate was hit with dozens of felony charges and a civil fraud lawsuit,” Rachel Emmanuel writes for The Western Journal.

The former president even wisecracked about all of the junk the left has thrown at him during a rally held in New Jersey earlier this month, going on to say, “If my plane flies over a blue state, the following day I get subpoenaed to go before a grand jury.”

“But despite all the efforts of the left to pull his support away from him, the former president’s star seems to just keep rising — and it’s causing panic among his opponents,” Emmanuel said. “On Tuesday, Politico reported that the Democratic Party is in a full-blown ‘freakout’ over President Joe Biden’s chances of winning re-election this fall.”

Once upon a time, high-level Democrats expressed a lot of confidence in Biden’s chances to defeat Trump, but things have changed significantly, with more than a dozen party leaders and operatives now having some doubts about the president’s ability to pull out a victory come November.

“This isn’t, ‘Oh my God, Mitt Romney might become president.’ It’s, ‘Oh my God, the democracy might end,’” one Democratic operative close to the White House stated in a conversation with Politico.

The source went on to explain that it’s the very low poll numbers of Biden, which seem impossible to raise, and the high stakes of this election that “are creating the freakout.”

Despite all of this, there aren’t many in the Democratic Party willing to actually speak the truth out loud: Biden is in trouble.

“You don’t want to be that guy who is on the record saying we’re doomed, or the campaign’s bad, or Biden’s making mistakes. Nobody wants to be that guy,” another Democratic operative noted in an interview with Politico.

“Trump is leading Biden in most battleground state polls and raked in a record $50.5 million from a single fundraising event last month. An adviser tracking reasons why the president could lose has compiled a list with nearly two dozen factors, from immigration and inflation to the president’s age and Vice President Kamala Harris‘ unpopularity,” Emmanuel wrote.

“The list of why we ‘could’ win is so small I don’t even need to keep the list on my phone,” the adviser commented.

Many Democrats are concerned that Biden and his campaign are not traveling down a winning path, despite their publicly projected confidence and constant slamming of Trump’s “photo-ops and PR stunts.”

The president’s approval rating, which is currently sticking around 38 percent, hasn’t move in months.

“Meanwhile, Trump has launched an aggressive offensive even in Democratic bastions such as New York, California and New Jersey. He aims to make inroads with Hispanic and black voters, which is sowing anxiety among Democrats unused to facing a credible GOP threat in those demographics,” the report disclosed. “A Siena College poll released Wednesday found that Trump was behind Biden in deep-blue New York by only 9 points, 47 percent to 38 percent.”

“The number of people in New York, including people of color that I come across who are saying positive things about Trump, is alarming,” Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine remarked, as per Politico.

A set of polling data from NBC News and the Pew Research Center, has revealed that 41 percent of individuals registered to vote are identifying as Republican compared to the 40 percent who claim to be Democrats. Back when Trump first ran for office in 2016, Democrats were ahead of Republicans by 7 percent.

“It could be the first time in 20 years that a Republican wins the popular vote, according to a March article in Newsweek. This is not to say the GOP has the election in the bag. A lot can happen over the final few months, and you can be sure there are strategy meetings taking place in Democratic offices all over the nation about what other roadblocks they can put up to slow the Trump train,” Emmanuel penned in the article.
