LAS VEGAS, NV – Tucker Carlson, a renowned conservative voice, has sounded an alarm about the potential turmoil in the United States as the 2024 presidential election nears. At the Risk On 360! Global Success Conference in Las Vegas, Carlson expressed deep concern about the growing polarization and suspicion among Americans.
In his speech, Carlson predicted an unparalleled election year, particularly with the increasing probability of former President Trump securing the Republican nomination, a scenario the Democratic Party has strenuously tried to prevent.
Surveying the current political and cultural climate, Carlson argued that the Left’s progressive policies have adversely affected millions of Americans, with no positive end in sight. He singled out the advancement of transgender rights among children as particularly problematic, claiming it offered no benefits to the children themselves, the wider society, or their parents.
Carlson’s foreboding outlook for the next election cycle could induce anxiety among Americans. He suggested that the country might be stretched beyond its limits, but he called for fortitude and truthfulness, even when faced with divisive or difficult circumstances.
Carlson stated: “You’ve got two people people running for president — one of them is literally senile. Yet, he’s standing for reelection at the age of 80. If you feel you’re being lied to, you’re 100% right.”
During his speech, Carlson urged the audience to pay close attention to the many ways in which the Biden administration is misleading the public and neglecting the best interests of America. He advised them to become outraged by the lies they had been told and emphasized that the current situation in the country could not be explained through traditional political terms.
Biden vs. Trump Poll: Rematch Expected to Be Tightly Contested, RFK Jr. Poses Threat to Biden
Washington, D.C. – A recent Reuters/Ipsos poll has revealed that a potential rematch in the upcoming election between U.S. President Joe Biden and his predecessor Donald Trump would be a closely fought battle, with both candidates facing significant vulnerabilities that could impact their chances of winning the White House.
According to the poll, Biden, an 81-year-old Democrat, continues to face doubt from voters regarding the strength of the economy, concerns about border security, and fears about rising crime rates. On the other hand, Republican former President Trump, aged 77, has his own worries, including four criminal trials related to his attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election and the mishandling of classified documents. The poll indicates that if Trump were to be convicted before the November 5, 2024, election, it could result in a significant loss of support for him.
In a head-to-head matchup, the poll shows Trump with a narrow 2-point lead over Biden, at 38% to 36%, with 26% of respondents undecided or considering voting for someone else. The online survey, conducted from December 5 to 11, interviewed 4,411 U.S. adults and had a precision measure, called a credibility interval, of around 2 percentage points.
Additionally, the poll reveals that Trump is currently the clear frontrunner for the Republican nomination. However, due to the state-by-state Electoral College system and deep-seated partisan divisions, a small number of states will ultimately play a decisive role in determining the election’s outcome.
In the seven states where the election was closest in 2020 – Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, North Carolina, and Michigan – Biden currently enjoys a 4-point lead among respondents who expressed certainty in their intention to vote.
Overall, the poll also suggests a deep sense of apathy among many voters with regards to a potential Biden-Trump rematch. Approximately six in 10 respondents expressed dissatisfaction with the current two-party system and desired a viable third option.
One possible third choice may come in the form of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an anti-vaccine activist who has launched an independent bid. The poll indicates that Kennedy, a member of the renowned political Kennedy family, could draw more support from Biden than Trump. When given the option to vote for Kennedy, Trump’s lead widened to a 5-point advantage nationally. However, Kennedy will face the challenge of securing enough signatures to appear on the ballot in all 50 states.
Third-party candidates have influenced past U.S. elections, even without winning. In 1992, Ross Perot’s strong showing helped propel Democrat Bill Clinton to the presidency, while in 2000, some Democrats believed Ralph Nader’s bid contributed to Al Gore’s loss to Republican George W. Bush.
If Biden were to win in 2024, he would become the oldest president ever to secure a second term. However, his candidacy is likely to be bolstered by public support for abortion rights, as well as his advocacy for gun control measures, climate change action, and higher taxes on the ultra-rich.
The poll also underscores the potential risks to Trump’s campaign as he faces a series of criminal trials next year. If Trump were to be convicted of a felony crime, 31% of Republican respondents indicated that they would not vote for him. Meanwhile, 45% of respondents felt that Trump was the better candidate for handling the economy, compared to 33% who selected Biden.
On the issue of abortion, Biden held an advantage, with 44% of respondents believing he was the better candidate for abortion access, versus 29% who chose Trump. Trump also garnered support from voters concerned about crime and immigration, with 42% selecting him as the better candidate on crime, compared to 32% who chose Biden. Additionally, 54% of respondents agreed that “immigration is making life harder for native-born Americans,” and felt that Trump was the better candidate on this issue.
The Reuters/Ipsos poll offers important insights into the current political landscape, highlighting the challenges and vulnerabilities faced by both Biden and Trump. As the 2024 election approaches, it remains to be seen how these dynamics will impact the race for the White House.
