If you’re heart is dead set on seeing a rematch between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump in the 2024 general election later this year, you should probably not get your hopes up. There are still quite a few obstacles to be overcome before we receive the showdown of the century — politically speaking, of course — one of which is Biden actually remaining the Democratic Party nominee. If his performance continues to slide down the drain, which is what it is doing as we speak, well, he might find himself replaced.
Even if he does make it, his prospects of taking home a victory against Trump are shrinking by the moment. Heck, the left-wing propaganda makers at MSNBC are predicting a bad outcome for the president, so you know things are not going well. These guys practically worship the ground Biden walks on. I guess if we’re being honest, they would worship whoever the leftist nutjob occupied the Oval Office.
Steve Kornacki, national political correspondent for MSNBC, went on to explain over the weekend how the final NBC poll of 2023 compared with statistics from other presidents going into an election year. I don’t think it takes a rocket scientist to figure out Biden is doing poorly compared to others who have been in his position in the past.
Here’s more from the Daily Wire:
Biden stood at 40% approval and 57% disapproval in November, which Kornacki said is the “lowest” dating back to President George H.W. Bush, who lost his attempt to secure a second term, and others who won or got defeated in the intervening years.

Moving on to an average of 2024 general election polls, which over course of 2023 has flipped from favoring Biden in a head-to-head rematch against former President Donald Trump by 2 points to giving Trump a plus-two margin over Biden, Kornacki noted that it looks to be a “very close race.”
Kornacki said the “big thing” on his radar is how voters — three out of four of them — have major to moderate concerns about Biden’s age (81) and fitness to continue serving as commander in chief. As for Trump, Kornacki continued, the X factor appears to be rising anxiety about his legal situation, particularly if there is a conviction.
On the surface, it appears both the incumbent and his main political opposition in the GOP are cleaning house in their respective parties with only a month to go before the primary elections begin, but Kornacki revealed some data that revealed both Trump and Biden fell short behind what he called a “generic” candidate from their parties back in a poll NBC conducted in November. However, Trump only fell behind by a few points while Biden was down by double digits.
“Broadly there’s not a big appetite for Trump versus Biden, even though it seems that each party, at least as we enter 2024, is poised to go in that direction,” Kornacki explained during his appearance on the network.
He showed another graphic, this one for a recent poll from The Wall Street Journal, which broadened the scope of a presidential contest beyond just the two major parties amid big names such as Robert Kennedy Jr. and potential Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV).
“They included a bunch of third party options and against Biden and Trump. They added up to 17%. That’s a big question heading into 2024. Is it going to be a real third party candidate to create a wild card in this?” he asked.
I really don’t think we’re going to see Biden in the White House for another four years. That does not mean that Trump is a shoe-in for victory either, though. Heck, he may not even be the nominee. We all know that polls can be deceiving. Plus, there’s the issue of the four indictments he still has to overcome. In other words, we don’t have a clue what’s going to happen, which is why this might be the most terrifying and exciting presidential election cycle in decades.
