It’s far too soon to tell how the 2024 presidential field will play out, but one thing’s for sure: Many on both sides of the aisle don’t expect President Biden to be on the ballot, either because he decides not to run or because his own party shows him the door.
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough has Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and VP Kamala Harris on a list of possible candidates to run for president, and puts Harris in front in spite of all the media bias against her, or something:
MEDIA BIAS ALERT: Kamala Harris hasn’t had a positive profile in a year. DeSantis sneezes and he’s framed as the rising star of politics. And yet the Great White Hope STILL loses is every head-to-head matchup with Harris. The VP also draws even with Trump. https://t.co/w6Z8kVHuw4

Wait, “Governor DeathSantis” and his Covid and “Don’t Say Gay” hellscape of Florida have been the recipient of positive media profiles? We must have missed those.
Keep believing that. https://t.co/fL7pft83CG

Oh, he will.

We’d pay to see that!
A. The notion that DeSantis gets positive news coverage is absurd. It's more like when he sneezes, the press asks how many people he killed.
B. Harris's "lead" has more to do with name recognition – thus the 20% "don't know/unsure"
C. Trump beats Harris by 7 points.

This guy may have once had some political savvy but years on MSNBC have turned him into a blithering ignoramus. https://t.co/wOLFEd9zW6

Imagine being dumb enough to believe any of this is true.
Biden and Harris have destroyed American in a record 18 months time and Biden will go down as the worst President ever.
If anything this only proves how corrupt the media, polls and our elections really are. https://t.co/yQCYPq13Du

It’s very likely that the Democrats are going to get blown out in the coming midterms, so if that happens we’ll see how much “media bias” is blamed.
Name ONE thing Kamala has done in the past year to earn a positive profile?
Have you considered that the negative press she’s received has been well earned? 🤔 https://t.co/ZFuuQVhkjr

We’re guessing that no, he hasn’t considered that. Simply showing how awful Harris is at what she’s doing is now considered “media bias”?

Good idea. Scarborough’s take probably won’t age very well.
Come on, media, it shouldn’t be too tough to do a few “positive profiles” on the greatest orator in modern U.S. political history:
Also, about the poll Scarborough cited in his thread…
. @joenbc is cherry-picking from this poll. It's really bad for Dems and Joe Biden. For example, 53% doubt Biden's mental fitness and 62% say he's too old to be president.https://t.co/YMBMrKg2O7 https://t.co/tpbHlTghlD pic.twitter.com/tKOI9RLZDM
