During a recent appearance on Fox News, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee opined that the Democrat nominee for the White House come 2024 won’t be Joe Biden, despite him being the incumbent. While Huckabee didn’t suggest who that 2024 nominee would be, he was confident in claiming it wouldn’t be Biden.
Huckabee framed the conundrum of the Democratic party as being akin to a time a dog food company crafted what they thought was an infallible product that turned out to be a bust.
“There was a dog food company that was going to create the greatest dog food in the world,” he said. “And they assembled the best scientists to create the formula, they created the most amazing packaging, they had the most wonderful marketing and advertising campaign and the greatest sales force that had ever been considered – but the dog food was a complete disaster and flopped, and it just didn’t sell.
“And so, the president of the company was trying to figure out why, and he asked the question how come this isn’t working. Finally, one of the people in the room said, ‘Sir, the dogs won’t eat the dang stuff.’ That’s what’s happening to the democrat party, is the people of America aren’t eating the stuff. They know better.”
The Fox News host then asked Huckabee “how likely” it would be that Biden winds up not representing the Democratic Party come 2024, The former governor stated plainly that Biden will either likely just not run or won’t be the Democrat’s choice to be on the 2024 ticket.
“I would say it’s 99.99% that he will not be running, and if he does,” he said, “I don’t think he’ll be the nominee. I don’t think he can stand to go all the next three years. But even if he does, I don’t see things changing so dramatically. Because I don’t see Joe changing.
“Joe is caught between the far-left of his party that he’s trying to appease and more moderate Democrats who have simply decided the party has left them, and they’re becoming at least Independents and in more cases than not, they’re becoming Republicans because they realize that inflation is outstripping their wages. They’re losing ground, not gaining it.”
