Biden seems to have bottomed out….
Trump IS on his way down…..
WTF NOT kick his big weakening ass AGAIN?
President Biden sees himself as the Democrat with the best chance of beating former President Trump.

Biden, the vice president for the previous eight years, didn’t run in 2016, with Clinton sitting as the party favorite.
Given Biden’s political problems, the 2024 scenario is setting itself up as quite the conundrum for Democrats….
And while there is no guarantee that Trump will win the 2024 GOP nomination if he does run for a second term — although polls suggest it is likely — there are Democrats who see Biden as a strong candidate to run against Trump in such a scenario.
“I thought the only relevant number in that was that Joe Biden beats Donald Trump,” Zac Petkanas, a former aide to Clinton’s 2016 campaign, said of the Times poll. …
