Colorado Senator Believes Trump Will Dominate Election If Biden Is the Democratic Nominee

President Trump Daily Report July 10,2024

Former President Donald Trump is going to win “by a landslide” in the 2024 November election, said Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO) on Tuesday.

According to The New York Times, Bennet was one of three Senate Democratic lawmakers who voiced apprehension at a caucus lunch last week that the 81-year-old president could be defeated by Trump after Biden stumbled in the June 27 debate.

During an appearance on CNN, the Colorado senator said that “Donald Trump is on track, I think, to win this election, and maybe win it by a landslide.”

“This race is on a trajectory that is very worrisome if you care about the future of this country,” Bennet said, stopping short of calling on Biden to end his re-election bid. 

“Joe Biden was nine points up at this time – the last time he was running” the senator noted. “Hillary Clinton was five points up.” 

“It’s a moral question about the future of our country, and I think it’s critically important for us to come to grips with what we face if together, we put this country on the path of electing Donald Trump again,” Bennet said of his decision to speak out publicly about his Nov. 5 fears.

“I think that we could lose the whole thing,” Bennet reiterated.

Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH) reportedly agree with Bennet’s remarks behind closed doors, but haven’t stated their opinion publicly.

“I’m sure President Biden has a different view of his prospects in this election than I do, but we should be having a discussion about that,” Bennet argued.

The Colorado senator went to town on the White House, accusing them of not putting forward any plan that might help lead them back into power in November or toward a victory amongst key swing states.

“They need to do that,” he said.

“They have to address the American people’s concerns,” Bennet declared.

Reflecting on Tuesday’s meeting, Bennet said he hadn’t heard any Senate Democrats say explicitly that they believed Biden needs to exit the race.

Even as Biden’s poll numbers fall and doubts about his cognitive acuity in seeking another term have exploded, the President has promised to stay in the race. That would mean Biden, the oldest president in U.S. history, will be 86 at the end of his second term if he is re-elected into office again.
