Phillips Questions Biden's Ability to Defeat Trump
Democratic Congressman Dean Phillips of Minnesota has publicly expressed doubt about President Joe Biden's chances of defeating Donald Trump in a potential 2024 rematch. Phillips, a member of House Democratic Leadership, took to social media to voice his concerns, stating, "As a member of House Democratic Leadership, I supported and promoted the Biden agenda. I campaigned for him, voted for him, and respect him. But how can anyone read this and conclude he's positioned to defeat Donald Trump? It's delusional."
Concerns Over Biden's Polling Numbers
Phillips shared an article from Politico titled "The polls keep getting worse for Biden," highlighting the downward trend in Biden's standing. The article noted that recent polls indicate Trump's lead in swing states and his popularity in head-to-head matchups with Biden. It also mentioned that Trump's vote share in national polling averages is higher now than at any point in the past year.
Phillips Announces Bid to Challenge Biden
In October, Phillips announced his own bid to challenge Biden in the 2024 Democratic primary race. Speaking to CBS Mornings, Phillips explained that while he admires Biden, he believes it is time for a "new generation" of Democrats to take over. He emphasized that he cannot stay quiet when polling numbers suggest an emergency situation for Democrats in the next election, calling a potential second term for Trump a "crisis moment for American democracy."
A Moderate Candidate
Phillips, who was first elected to the House in 2018, is described as a more "moderate" candidate. His decision to challenge the sitting president within his own party indicates a growing division within the Democratic Party and raises questions about Biden's ability to maintain unified support as he moves forward with his agenda.
