‘Terrified’ Biden aides reportedly fear one GOP candidate in particular: ‘A known quantity who is toxic’

President Joe Biden’s aides are reportedly “terrified” that former President Donald Trump will win the 2024 presidential election.

“Several Biden aides themselves [say] that looking at Trump’s wide lead in every primary poll – and no clear leader in a hypothetical Biden-Trump rematch – leaves them with a particular kind of existential stress,” CNN reported Thursday.

“The former president may seem like the easier Republican candidate to beat, as a known quantity who is toxic to many voters, but they’re terrified that if he is the nominee, any fumbles by the campaign or the president himself would enable the return of a candidate they see as a singular threat to American democracy,” CNN added.

Which is ironic, since democracy remained perfectly intact throughout Trump’s presidency. Meanwhile, the American people’s wealth grew by leaps and bounds, while border crossings simultaneously dropped to record lows.

“The president has said publicly himself that democracy is still on the ballot,” White House deputy chief of staff Jen O’Malley Dillon said. “If you believed that to be true the first time, you have to believe that to be more true the second time.”

Which is why some of those who believe this are now calling for Biden to step down from the 2024 race and allow a better-suited candidate to march ahead.

“I don’t think Biden and Vice President Harris should run for re-election. It’s painful to say that, given my admiration for much of what they have accomplished. But if he and Harris campaign together in 2024, I think Biden risks undoing his greatest achievement — which was stopping Donald Trump,” leftist columnist David Ignatius wrote this week.

Biden’s aides blame this new push to oust their boss on the media, who they say have been “validating concerns about Biden’s age and about Republican claims of Hunter Biden’s corruption by covering those concerns, despite what they argue is a lack of evidence,” according to CNN.

Never mind that, aside from the age issue, the media have been covering these “concerns” in a blatantly biased way toward Democrats. Regarding the Biden family corruption, for example, they’ve kept falsely claiming there’s “no evidence.”

None of this is to say Biden’s campaign has prematurely given up. They’ve certainly not. In fact, the president’s aides have reportedly already begun “stepping up outreach to holdout major donors to help fund what one Biden senior adviser said ‘is going to require us to be the best campaign that has ever existed for the president, when we are going to be up against things we have never faced before,'” CNN notes.

Like, for instance, the president’s horrible poll numbers, terrible economy, and bizarre foreign policy decisions.

Biden’s campaign has also begun “ramping up an extensive data and outreach experiment that they say is the only way to account for how much has changed in politics, technology and psychology in the eight years since the last presidential election not defined by social distancing, car rallies, Zoom fundraisers and the rest that came with the Covid-19 pandemic.”

The reported goal is to determine which, if any, Republicans and swing voters/moderates they can wrench off of Trump and redirect toward Biden.

“The Biden campaign is collecting information like who is watching their early microtargeted online campaign ads and for how long, who is loading them up again, who is sharing them with their own social media networks and which networks,” according to CNN.

“They are testing not just which voters the campaign is reaching and what the campaign is saying, but how the voters are being reached, how they’re processing the information – and whether any of that can be turned into votes. Do multiple ads make a difference? Does it work to send a follow up text to people who have seen ads? How long should they wait?” CNN reported Thursday.

“This is a competitive election that came down to really fine margins last time,” Biden deputy campaign manager Rob Flaherty said. “We would be crazy not to be experimenting.”

Fair enough.

Where the campaign is still struggling is with donations. While the president has reportedly “outraised” Trump, some of the party’s “most notable  names and biggest checkbooks” have yet to contribute.

“Those include former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg and investor and environmental activist Tom Steyer, who together spent nearly $1.5 billion in their failed presidential campaigns to take on Trump in 2020,” according to CNN.
