During a recent appearance on Newsmax, Arizona’s Conservative candidate for the U.S. Senate, Kari Lake, made a bold prediction regarding President Joe Biden’s future, stating that it’s “pretty obvious” that he will be replaced at the last minute. Lake offered insights into the Democrats’ potential next move on the political chessboard.
She asserted that Democrats are already taking steps to distance themselves from President Biden, positioning themselves for an alternative candidate. Lake speculated that California Governor Gavin Newsom might be the chosen one, despite his track record as a “disaster” for California. Newsom’s policies have sparked the popular phrase “Don’t California our Arizona” as a warning against importing California’s governance style into other states. Lake noted that Newsom’s recent activities, including traveling across the country to criticize Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis and endorsing Joe Biden, suggest he’s positioning himself as a national candidate.
Furthermore, Newsom’s trip to China raised eyebrows, as it hinted at grander ambitions. Lake argued that it’s becoming increasingly apparent that Newsom is trying to present himself as a serious contender in the Democratic Party. She suggested that Democrats might be acknowledging that Joe Biden’s presidency could be so disastrous that it risks collapsing their party if he remains their candidate.
Lake’s assessment is not unfounded. President Biden’s approval ratings have been falling, and they’ve reached levels even lower than some of Donald Trump’s worst polling numbers during his time in office. This situation raises speculation that the Democrats may decide to distance themselves from Biden before the upcoming election. Some observers even speculate that Michelle Obama could be another potential replacement candidate. Either way, it appears that the Democratic Party is facing significant challenges with President Biden leading the way.
