“Despite facing 91 criminal charges, Trump is one step away from being president,” says former Obama political adviser

Dan Pfeiffer, co-host of the Pod Save America podcast and former senior political advisor to former President Barack Obama, recently stated in an op-ed that, Despite the fact that former President Donald Trump is facing 91 criminal charges, he is one step away from the presidency of the United States.

Somehow, and against all common sense, the 2024 election between a competent president (referring to Joe Biden) and an incompetent criminal (referring to Donald Trump) will be incredibly close. Pfeiffer said in an article published in late August.

Among the reasons why this will happen, in Pfeiffer’s opinion, is the fact that Trump appears to have retained the majority of his voters in 2020, unlike the current President Joe Biden.

“In a New York Times poll, 91% of Trump voters in 2020 support him again, while only 87% of Biden voters plan to re-elect him in 2024,” indicated the former Obama’s adviser in the article.

Likewise, Pfeiffer showed that, according to the surveys he reviewed, It appears that Trump has more support within the Republican Party compared to the support that Biden has in the Democratic Party.

On the other hand, the vote of the youth also seems to be a challenge for Joe Biden, because so far, according to the surveys, he has not been able to take advantage of the support of the youth for the presidential election in 2024. Pfeiffer shows, however, that he is still too early to establish it as a trend.

Biden must rebuild the coalition that defeated Trump in 2020. “It’s difficult because the anti-MAGA majority is so diverse, generationally, demographically, geographically and even ideologically,” Pfeiffer said.

Although each survey gave different results, the one carried out by CNN created concerns among American Democrats, because it revealed that the majority of the US did not approve of Biden’s administration.

This is not the only recent poll that has given negative results for Joe Biden.

A survey conducted by The Wall Street Journal revealed that the majority of American voters consider President Joe Biden “too old to run for president.”.

According to the survey results, 73% of registered voters think the statement that Biden is “too old” to run for the US presidency describes him as “very good” or “very good”.
