Joe Biden made one bad prediction about Florida that is going to come back to bite him

Apr 9, 2024

Joe Biden has gotten too big for his britches ahead of the 2024 Election.

His campaign is living in a fantasy world about the state of the race.

And Joe Biden made one bad prediction about Florida that is going to come back to bite him.

President Joe Biden is vacuuming up campaign contributions from his big-money donors in Hollywood, Silicon Valley, and on Wall Street.

Flush with cash, the Biden campaign is looking to go on the offensive this fall.

Biden campaign believes Florida can go blue this fall

A memo from the Biden campaign predicted that the witch hunt by Democrat prosecutors against former President Donald Trump and their financial advantage would open the door for Florida to go blue at the Presidential level for the first time since the 2012 Election.

“Make no mistake: Florida is not an easy state to win, but it is a winnable one for President Biden, especially given Trump’s weak, cash-strapped campaign, and serious vulnerabilities within his coalition,” Biden campaign manager Julie Chavez Rodriguez wrote in the memo.

Biden’s campaign claimed that the Democrat base in the Sunshine State is “growing and energized.”

Rodriguez added that Florida has become “a state where President Biden has a compelling story of results, Trump and Rick Scott’s extreme agenda is making Floridians’ lives worse, and the Democratic coalition is growing and energized.”

U.S. Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) is also running for reelection this fall in a race that is considered a reach for Democrats.

The confidence of the Biden campaign flies in the face of the reality on the ground in Florida.

Florida is a long-shot play for the Biden campaign

Trump won Florida twice and increased his margin of victory from the 2016 Election to the 2020 Election in the state.

The Sunshine State has become increasingly Republican with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis at the helm.

In the 2022 Midterm Elections, he won a 20-point victory in his reelection race and Republicans romped up and down the ticket.

Democrats no longer hold any statewide elected offices in Florida after being routed that year.

Republicans have built a 800,000-person advantage in registered voters over Democrats and that number could potentially balloon to one million by Election Day in November.

DeSantis said that he is ready to campaign for the Republican ticket in Florida this year but he predicted it would not be necessary because the state will not be competitive at the top of the ticket.

And the limited polling out of the state has found Trump leading Biden.

Florida was once the biggest swing state in the country but now it could be on its way to being a fully red state.
