Nate Silver Issues Dire Warning to Democrats About Biden


by Matt Margolis

Famed pollster Nate Silver isn’t kidding around anymore. He is now saying Democrats have a real problem on their hands with Joe Biden, and he’s admitting something publicly that many on the left have likely only been able to admit in private: Joe Biden should drop out.

“Biden just hit a new all-time low in approval (37.4%) at 538 yesterday,” he wrote in a post on X/Twitter on Monday. “Dropping out would be a big risk. But there’s some threshold below which continuing to run is a bigger risk. Are we there yet? I don’t know. But it’s more than fair to ask.”

Silver had once considered Joe Biden the clear favorite in a rematch against Donald Trump. However, Silver’s outlook has shifted dramatically due to Biden’s persistently low approval ratings — despite economic improvements — and the undeniable issue of his advanced age.

This is hardly the first time Silver has warned that Joe Biden’s approval ratings were sub-par.

Back in February, Silver identified three key issues for Biden that have only gotten worse. First, Biden’s approval ratings are notably below the level that would typically secure re-election, and they show no improvement. Second, Biden lacks “contingencies that could improve his situation,” while Trump still dominated the polls despite his legal troubles. And, of course, Biden’s age was (and still is) a critical concern, with a substantial majority of Americans viewing him as too old for the presidency.

“If he were 10 years younger, he might still be a 65/35 favorite,” he said at the time. “But if his campaign is substantially encumbered by his age, he’s probably the underdog. If you’re someone who would rather not see Trump re-elected again or who cares about the election for other reasons, it’s time to face the facts. You need to adjust to the new reality and not be mired in anchoring bias by your previous impression of the race.”

It is now June, and can anyone say any of these problems have improved since? Not at all.

Though he didn’t say so explicitly, Silver appears to believe that it’s probably too late to replace Biden.

Silver isn’t the only person stating publicly that Joe Biden shouldn’t have run. Veteran Democratic strategist James Carville told WABC on Sunday that Biden shouldn’t have run for reelection.

joe was out on the White House lawn yesterday because June someteenth.
He stood with George floyd’s brother, a new millionaire thanks to lawsuits.
And Motown music was played.
Everyone else swayed and danced.
But joe was paralyzed for a while.
He stood, stock still, even his hands frozen while everyone else enjoyed the sounds.
George Floyd’s brother tried to snap him out of it.

Maybe he was backed up a little and was trying to push one out.

If Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden were 10 years younger, instead of being mentally decrepit and stupid, he’d just be stupid HEADING FOR mentally decrepit and stupid. Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden maybe be atrophied but his policies are Obama’s. Those policies were bad in 2008-2016 and they are bad now.

Everyone surrounding Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden keep the truth about his disasters from him and fill him with imaginary positive bullshit. He probably doesn’t even know (for multiple reasons) how his approvals have cratered. So any suggestions to drop out (or honor his promise to serve only one term) is met by negativity. And, yeah, now it’s too late. After praising how sharp and brilliant at his SOTU speech, dropping out now would look like nothing but submitting to the demands of Hamas terrorist supporters who are demanding Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden go.

Well, Democrats, this is what you get when election fraud elects the President. The people actually know BETTER.
