Ex-Clinton Adviser: ‘The Democratic Party Is in Chaos’

Former Clinton adviser Mark Penn has revealed that “the Democratic Party is in chaos.”

Speaking during an appearance on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria” on Friday, Penn reacted to a new poll on the Democrats’ 2024 nominee.

The polling shows only 17% of Democrats favor former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton becoming the party’s nominee if President Joe Biden does not run for a second term.

Penn told host Maria Bartiromo that 17 percent is a “very weak number.”

He added that with Biden’s approval rating at 39% and no enthusiasm around Vice President Kamala Harris, the Democrats are “in chaos.”

“[I] would say that 17% is a very weak number,” Penn said.

“I did not sense in this poll ‘bring back Hillary.’

“She used to start out in these races at 30, 40, 45, 50 when the country really wanted Hillary.

“This says to me the country really wants to go forward, you know, not back.

“They’re not giving any votes to Kamala Harris either.

“They don’t really like Joe Biden for a second term, so I think the Democratic Party is in chaos, and in contrast, the Republican Party is ready to consolidate around former President Trump.

“I thought [Hillary] might get much stronger numbers,” he added.

“But it’s just not what the Democrat electorate is saying.

“They want somebody new.

“They want somebody younger.

“They want somebody fresher.

“I don’t see Hillary really making a comeback here … as tantalizing as it is.”
