President Biden has a nightmare scenario for his re-election campaign. That nightmare could be coming true.
Because Biden is going to wet himself when he learns what he’s being forced to do.
The Democrat National Committee controversially announced weeks ago that they were not planning any debates for the Democrat primary race.
Immediately, the Democrat voting base made their discontent with this decision known in no uncertain terms.
The former CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, took to Twitter recently to say that the Democrats need to have debates as he shared a video of Joe Biden taking yet another fall on stage earlier this month.
Open the Democrat primaries and debates. This isn’t fair to anyone. https://t.co/KcW67BaR7z

The reality of Joe Biden being run again in 2024 for the Democrats because the Democrats have no other option is sickening for most Americans.
That’s why so many are speaking out.
But the Democrat Party’s hand could be forced to hold debates between the top contenders like Biden, Kennedy, and Williamson if this latest news is any indication of which direction the wind is blowing.
According to a new poll from USA Today/Suffolk University, about 80% of all likely Democrat Party voters want there to be debates held during the primary cycle.
Joe Biden was leading the pack in the poll, with 58% of individuals saying that they would vote for Biden if the primary elections were held right now.
But what’s worth noting is that 58% is an incredibly low number for an incumbent President’s base within the his party.
Also, that’s 80% of Democrat Party voters who want Joe Biden to appear on the debate stage, not 80% of all Americans.
If you were to ask the average American sample, it would likely be even higher, potentially as high as 90% or more.
The simple truth is that Democrat voters want the choice to reject Joe Biden if they deem him to be unfit for office in 2024.
“The decision not to debate is ignoring the 82% of women, 84% of union households, 86% of independents, and 90% of young voters who are not only planning to vote in their state’s Democratic primary or caucus next year but also would like to see a series of Democratic primary debates,” a Suffolk University Research Center official said of the poll results.
Should the Democrats insist that he won’t have any debates, it could easily backfire in a major way.
First of all, it will make Democrats lose confidence in their candidate in 2024. That could turn into a lower turnout than he got in 2020 because Biden’s own voter base from 2020 would feel betrayed.
Secondly, undecided voters might see this as the Democrats admitting that Joe Biden is simply unfit for office and that Biden’s Republican challenger would obviously be a better choice for them to put into the Oval Office.
Could you imagine Biden running against Ron DeSantis who is just 44 years old? And could you imagine Biden on a debate stage against DeSantis or Trump?
Biden might get out of the Democrat primary debates, but there’s no way he’s let off of the hook of the general election debates.
