Let’s face it, the Biden-Harris ticket is a dog. According to a most recent Washington Post-ABC poll, former President Donald Trump is leading President Joe Biden by 10 percentage points currently. Policy failures leading to escalating inflation, the invasion at the border, and Biden’s physical and mental frailness are pushing voters toward the most popular alternative, Trump. Democrats realize they can’t win the 2024 election with Biden or even Harris in front. Thus dressing Newsom up in a new coat and cap and softening his ultra left-leaning demeanor so as to play better in Peoria is worth a shot. Considering the masterful makeover the Democrats and elites performed on both Biden and Harris resulting in a 2020 presidential win, Newsom needs a lot less fluffing. He also screams “presidential” when in the kit gloves of the establishment media. And let’s not forget that a “Newsom” win would be easier to believe in a Newsom-Trump election than a Biden win. To top that off, the short-term memories of young voters work in Newsom’s favor. These are the very same voters who grew up on a diet of “Listen to what I say. Don’t watch what I do.” They’ve been suckling on the Democratic creed for a lifetime. Most don’t even follow politics so they have no idea how tragically Newsom’s liberal policies destroyed the once beautiful state of California.
