While the 2024 presidential election remains distant and the political and economic conditions of the United State are susceptible to change over the highlighted period of time leading up to the election, most media outlets and both major political parties at the national level are working hard to make the battle for the presidency a primary focus for citizens across the country. In the Republican field, a crowded group of candidates is grappling for relevancy as the former 45th President Donald Trump maintains a commanding 40 point or higher lead over all of his potential rivals. Even in the face of four criminal indictments and a barrage of negative media coverage, Trump remains the frontrunner.
In the Democratic party, President Joe Biden remains the frontrunner for the party’s nomination. Biden, although vulnerable, enjoys the advantage of the incumbency and maintains the support of a majority of Democratic voters. Biden also does not face any significant resistance or opposition to his nomination, and the only challenger which has gained a little traction against him is Robert Kennedy Jr, who is now running as an independent. Kennedy Jr. has been generally received in a more favorable light by Republican voters than Democratic ones, a clear indicator that the party has truly become a far-left, progressive machine supported by wealthy elites and not working class citizens which had previously been its historic base.
Biden remains vulnerable, and Trump appears likely to be the Republican nominee, setting up a rematch of 2020. One issue that may take center stage once again is immigration. Millions of illegals have entered the country through the open border under Bidens watch. Republicans have been trying to negotiate with Democrats in congress by claiming that they will not support additional aid for Ukraine unless the border is addressed. In a recent rally, Trump cited the need to stop the migrants, and claimed they were “poisoning” the blood of America.
