What Is Happening Now
Greetings, readers. A new Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey has shown that former President Donald Trump is leading President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris in hypothetical 2024 match-ups. According to the poll, if the 2024 presidential election were held today, 46% of those surveyed said they would vote for Trump over Biden, while 49% would vote for Trump and 39% would vote for Harris if the race were between the two. This is a significant margin, indicating that Trump continues to hold a strong position among conservative voters.
The survey also found that Trump is the clear favorite among a competitive Republican field, with 37% of respondents supporting him in a hypothetical eight-way primary. This is not surprising, as Trump’s political legacy and influence have remained strong since his presidency ended.
It is worth noting that while the Republican primary is expected to be crowded, Democrats are coalescing around a Biden reelection campaign, with intraparty talks about replacing the president in 2024 cooling down. After Biden’s State of the Union address, his approval rating remains unchanged at 42%, where it has hovered for most of his presidency.
As the 2024 election approaches, it will be interesting to see how Trump’s popularity and influence shape the political landscape. As always we must remember that poll, is just a poll. I have yet to find myself trusting pollsters, but this is coming from Harvard, which is not a very “friendly” place when it comes to it’s opinions on Trump. Very interesting indeed. Stay tuned for more updates, and thank you for reading Crystal Clear News. What does Trump have to say about this? Hear it for yourself:
“I Don’t Think Biden Can Run Again”
On “Tucker Carlson Tonight” while speaking on President Joe Biden and his potential run in 2024 former President Trump declares that “there’s something wrong” with him.
“Do you think Biden will stay in the race?” Carlson asks. To which Trump states outright:
“Look, I watch him just like you do, and I think it’s almost inappropriate for me to say it. I don’t see how it’s possible. There’s something wrong. I saw his answer today on television about whether or not he was going to run to a very nice guy named Al Roker. You can’t get a softer question than that that was a long answer talking about the eggs and this and that. Look, I don’t think he can.”
Historical Similarities: Grover Cleveland’s Incredible Come Back
Grover Cleveland is the only U.S. President who has been elected, lost re-election, and then won again. Cleveland served as the 22nd President of the United States from 1885 to 1889, lost his re-election bid to Benjamin Harrison in 1888, and then won the Presidency back in 1892. This accomplishment makes him one of the most unique figures in American political history.
Cleveland was a lawyer and politician from New York. He served as the Governor of New York from 1883 to 1885 before being elected President in 1884. As President, Cleveland was known for his efforts to reform the Civil Service system, his veto of a bill that would have provided federal aid to drought-stricken farmers, and his strong stance on maintaining the gold standard.
In 1888, Cleveland sought re-election against Republican candidate Benjamin Harrison. The election was a contentious one, with both sides engaging in negative campaigning. Cleveland won the popular vote, but lost in the electoral college, making him the only President to win the popular vote in three separate elections but only win the Presidency twice.
Following his defeat, Cleveland returned to his law practice and stayed active in politics. In 1892, he sought the Democratic Party nomination for President once again, running against incumbent President Benjamin Harrison. Cleveland won the nomination and went on to win the general election, becoming the only President to serve two non-consecutive terms.
Cleveland’s second term was marked by a number of significant events. One of the most notable was the Pullman Strike of 1894, in which workers for the Pullman Palace Car Company went on strike to protest low wages and poor working conditions. Cleveland was initially hesitant to get involved in the strike, but ultimately sent in federal troops to break it up, leading to violence and arrests.
Cleveland also had to deal with economic issues during his second term, including a severe depression known as the Panic of 1893. He was criticized for his response to the depression, which included a controversial decision to repeal the Sherman Silver Purchase Act, which had mandated that the government purchase a certain amount of silver each month.
Despite these challenges, Cleveland remains a popular figure in American political history. He was known for his integrity, honesty, and commitment to reform, and his unique achievement of winning the Presidency twice with an intervening loss has solidified his place in the annals of American politics.
In conclusion, Grover Cleveland’s story is a fascinating one that illustrates the ups and downs of American politics. His accomplishment of being elected, losing re-election, and then winning the Presidency again is one of the most unique in American history, and his tenure as President was marked by a number of significant events and challenges. Despite these challenges, Cleveland remains a respected figure in American political history, and his legacy continues to inspire politicians and citizens alike.
