Democrat Presidential Candidate Dean Phillips: ‘It’s Delusional’ to Think Biden Can Beat Trump

Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN), a Democrat 2024 presidential candidate, has warned that it is “delusional” to believe that President Joe Biden could beat President Donald Trump in next year’s election.

In a post on Twitter/X over the weekend, Phillips supported his prediction by citing Biden’s declining poll numbers.

The congressman also shared a report by Politico that warns “The polls keep getting worse for Biden.”

In polls by NBC NewsQuinnipiacFox News, and Morning Consult, Trump is leading Biden.

“As a member of House Democratic Leadership, I supported and promoted the Biden agenda,” Phillips posted.

“I campaigned for him, voted for him, and respect him.

“But how can anyone read this and conclude he’s positioned to defeat Donald Trump?”

“It’s delusional,” Phillips concluded.

Phillips announced his bid to challenge Biden on October 26.

He cited concerns about Biden’s age and ability to win the 2024 election.

Writer and self-help guru Marianne Williamson also is challenging Biden for the Democrat nomination.

Biden has suffered some falls, including one at the Air Force Academy on June 1.

Biden now takes a different set of stairs onto the VC-25 used as Air Force One, among other concessions to his age.

The president also faces third-party challenges from more liberal candidates, including environmental advocate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and professor Cornel West.

Both West and Kennedy are running as left-wing independents.

Meanwhile, 2016 Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein announced she is seeking that party’s nomination in 2024.
