Senator JD Vance Weighs in on Rumor that Democrats Will Replace Joe Biden on the Ballot
Ohio U.S. Senator JD Vance (R-OH) weighed in on resurfaced discussions rumoring the Democratic Party will choose a different candidate to replace President Joe Biden as its nominee in the 2024 presidential election.
The “will Biden be replaced on the ballot?” question is a good proxy for what conservative believe about our elites.
If you think our elites are mostly midwits who are motivated by status anxiety, the Dems are probably stuck with Biden.

Vance, distinguishing the elites as individuals who are either “midwits” motivated by “status anxiety” or “evil super geniuses,” said he’s betting on the “midwits” who are “probably stuck with Biden.”
“The “will Biden be replaced on the ballot?” question is a good proxy for what conservative believe about our elites. If you think our elites are mostly midwits who are motivated by status anxiety, the Dems are probably stuck with Biden. If you think our elites are evil super geniuses, maybe the Dems can replace Biden with Michelle Obama or Gavin Newsom. I know a lot of these people. My vote is for the midwits.” Vance said.
“It’s Trump v. Biden for 2024,” Vance added.
Rumors of Biden being replaced by a different candidate in this year’s election resurfaced as a report by special counsel Robert Hur described the president as a “sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.”
The report sparked a discussion on Biden’s capabilities to carry out the full duties as president during a second term if he were to be reelected.
The Republican National Committee, for example, reacted to the special counsel’s report, saying in a statement, “Joe Biden’s mental decline is both sad and alarming, and putting a ‘sympathetic,’ ‘elderly’ man who can’t remember major events from his own life back in the Oval Office would undoubtedly make America less safe.”
In an effort to curtail reactions to the special counsel’s report, Biden addressed the nation on the same day the report was released and claimed his memory was “fine.”
However, when answering a question from a reporter about the situation in the Middle East, Biden mistakenly referred to the president of Egypt as the president of Mexico.
Biden, the oldest president in history to take the oath of office, would be 86 at the end of a second term if he’s reelected in November.
