Elon Musk Makes Announcement About 2024 Race

Tesla, Starlink, and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk seems to view the Thursday debate between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump as mere political theater.

Musk expressed his thoughts on his X platform shortly after the debate, responding to a post by billionaire venture capitalist David Sacks: “They’re just talking puppets. It was a setup for a switch.”

Sacks commented, “Watching the CNN commentators put the knife in Biden’s back is actually sickening. No loyalty. No remorse. It’s just gross.”

University of Virginia Center for Politics Director Larry Sabato remarked during a CNN segment on Friday that the race between Biden and Trump is “no longer close,” dismissing the notion that Biden could close the gap with an interview or rallies.

“I don’t think [President Biden] can change the dynamic with one interview,” Sabato stated. “I suppose you’d say stop the bleeding and the bleeding has been bad. I mean, we’ve been looking at all the data coming in, all the surveys — some public, some private — and it’s bad. Democrats need to understand that things are not stable and it is no longer close. The race between Biden and Trump is no longer close.”

“Just take the four last week, including CNN’s poll — all of them were in agreement, which you rarely see even with well-conducted polls: Biden, who was really maybe even, maybe two points behind Trump, is now — at least in unison in these polls — six points behind,” Sabato continued. “That’s millions and millions of voters. And what is it that’s going to restore them? A good interview, a good rally? Come on.”

Meanwhile, Biden has confirmed that he is staying in the presidential race against former President Donald Trump, despite what voters seem to want.

A Rasmussen Reports poll shared on Friday brought grim news for both Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. The poll revealed that 55 percent of respondents want the president to withdraw from the presidential election. Additionally, 50 percent said that Democrats should choose someone new, not Harris, as his replacement.

“Importantly, nearly half (48%) of Democratic voters at least somewhat agree that Biden should step aside and let the Democratic Party choose another candidate,” the poll indicated.

Another poll, from Cygnal, also brought bad news for the Democrats, as voters criticized the president’s debate performance and showed little confidence in the vice president.

“Post-debate, we’ve seen the largest single month-over-month movement towards Republicans across-the-board, from R+0 to R+4, in the history of our national polling,” Cygnal President Brent Buchanan stated. “President Biden’s image worsened to 62% having an unfavorable view of him after 67% of respondents said they watched his disastrous debate performance.”

“Trump’s performance earned him 4 points of undecided debate-watchers and another 3 points from those who were Biden supporters heading into the debate. There’s little question this has further eroded the political environment for Democrats,” he added.

Biden made another gaffe at a rally in Wisconsin, declaring he is still the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee.

“There’s been a lot of speculation: What’s Joe going to do? Is he going to stay in the race? Is he going to drop out?” he told the crowd in a 17-minute speech.

“Here’s my answer: I’m running and going to win again,” he said before stumbling. “I will beat Donald Trump,” he declared. “I will beat him again in 2020.”

“I’m the nominee of the Democratic Party,” Biden continued in his halting speech to a crowd in a middle school gym. “You voted for me to be your nominee — no one else.

“Some folks don’t seem to care who you voted for. Guess what? They are trying to push me out of the race. Let me say this as clearly as I can: I’m staying in the race,” the president concluded.
