As President Biden’s and the Democratic Party enter a tense midterm election year some progressives within his party are looking at challenging him in 2024.

According to a PoliticoReport: Several Democratic strategists believe that a progressive candidate will try to challenge President Biden in the 2024 primary race.

“Will there be any progressive challenger?” Yes,” Jeff Weaver, a former presidential campaign manager for Sen. Bernie Sanders said.

Some think that Nina Turner, or the former 2020 presidential candidate Marianne Williamson, might challenge President Biden.

Another progressive strategist described President Biden as “deeply unpopular” & “old as sh –.”

“He’s deeply unpopular. He’s old as sh–. He’s largely been ineffective, unless we’re counting judges or whatever the hell inside-baseball scorecard we’re using. And I think he’ll probably get demolished in the midterms,” Corbin Trent, former communications director for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, and co-founder of No Excuses PAC said.

Progressive activists are also beginning blame the president for inaction on issues like climate change.

Between December 25 and January 1, an Occupy Biden group formed a camp near President Biden’s Delaware residence, asking that he declare a climate emergency. A spokesperson for Occupy Biden criticized President Biden’s inaction on climate change.

“We are aware that an administration that even believes that the climate crisis exists is an asset. However, we must act in an emergency to avoid catastrophe,” Karen Igou spokeswoman for Occupy Biden to Fox News on Saturday.

Progressives are critiquing President Biden more often, from issues such as Build Back Better to climate changes, but some are skeptical that any primary challenger will be successful.

“I think that when you look at Bernies and the AOC, it’s clear that they are disappointed that the deal was not done by the end of the year. They feel like he’s selling out. Lee Carter, a Republican Pollster, stated that they were disappointed with any compromises he made. “They’re ready and waiting to pounce upon him.”

Carter said that while he isn’t sure that the criticism will reach a point where President Biden will be challenged in a primary election in 2024, he believes that progressives will push him as far as they can.

Carter stated that President Biden is in a difficult position because he has to make concessions for the far left. “But then he also has Joe Manchin that he needs to make sure he does not lose.”

The criticism President Biden is currently facing is not limited to Washington, D.C., as he currently enjoys a 43% approval rating according to the Real Clear Politics polling. Average.

Lee Miringoff is the director of Marist Institute for Public Opinion. He said that President Biden has made this a major concern. Is His inability communicate effectively on areas his administration may be doing well.

“The economy is not perfect, but there are areas where it’s strong. People are unsure and have doubts because they aren’t focusing on that aspect of the economy. We hear about inflation, but not unemployment and not the GDP. There are other things he could point out. Miringoff stated, “He hasn’t been very successful at doing.”

Miringoff stated that he believes it’s possible for a Democrat challenge President Biden, but it’s unlikely to be any type “big name”.

“If a Democrat ran, it would be viewed by the party as divisive and likely to not attract a marquee candidate. Miringoff suggested that it could be someone who is still looking for attention and raising some issues.

Kevin Walling, Democratic strategist and former Biden campaign surrogate, dismissed the idea of a progressive threat against President Biden in 2024. He stated that people like Nina Turner would be unsuccessful.

“With all due respect for Nina Turner, there was a reason she was unsuccessful in her Democratic Primary for Congress. It turns out that running against a popular Democratic president, and a member her own party, is not a winning strategy. Walling stated that any talk of a possible primary challenge is not only premature but also misguided.

Walling stated that President Biden is in an “excellent spot with an ear to re-election.”

Walling stated that Walling has achieved “major progressive goals” in education, combating climate changes, and social program investment. He also passed the largest bipartisan infrastructure funding in decades, which was a priority for more centrist members.
