So long as Donald Trump remains the front runner for the 2024 Republican nomination, President Biden is the only Democrat capable of beating him. This is the silver lining from an otherwise grim assessment of Biden’s re-election and renomination chances from the New York Times. Oddly they have a symbiotic relationship since opposing Trump remains the best way to unify the Democrats around Biden.
Otherwise it’s becoming painfully evident that Biden lacks the stamina and political chops to take on a younger Republican nominee like Ron DeSantis. This is why the two questions for Democrats after this midterm will be if anyone besides Biden can take on Trump and if Biden can take on anyone else beside Trump.
