New York In Play for 2024? Democrats Say “This is a Battleground State Now”

The Dems are done — they’re destroying themselves from the inside out, even in the states where they are most influential.

It’s starting to look like even New York could be in play for Trump this year.

Following Biden’s disastrous performance at the first presidential debate and the fallout that ensued after, support for the Democratic ticket is slipping in the longtime deep blue state of New York.

Democrats are afraid that, for the first time since 1980, New York could swing Republican.

“We’re still acting like this is a one-party state, which for pretty much 20, 25 years it has been,” Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine, a Democrat, said, “I truly believe we’re a battleground state now.”

Take a look:

A new report from Politico says:

President Joe Biden has a new problem: a competitive race in deep blue New York.

Elected officials, union leaders and political consultants are panicking over polls showing a steady erosion of Biden’s support in a state he won by 23 points four years ago. They’re so worried they’ve been trying to convince the Biden team to pour resources into New York to shore up his campaign and boost Democrats running in a half-dozen swing districts that could determine control of the House.

Biden aides have not focused on New York, committing no significant resources to a state where they expect the president to easily win all 28 electoral college votes in November.

But the warning signs are impossible to ignore and have been building over the past year. Two private polls conducted in a swing New York House district and reviewed by POLITICO — one in September and another in March — found former President Donald Trump leading Biden there by 1 point, a virtual tie. And public polls over the last four months found Biden’s lead had winnowed to just 8 points across New York — an unusually narrow gap in a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans 2 to 1.

“We’re still acting like this is a one-party state, which for pretty much 20, 25 years it has been,” Democratic Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine said. “I truly believe we’re a battleground state now.”

Biden, whose campaign is in free fall after a shambling debate performance last month, is yet to pay much attention to the state beyond high-dollar fundraisers. He was most recently in New York on June 29 to raise money in the Hamptons and attend a dedication ceremony for the Stonewall Inn Visitor Center in Manhattan a day earlier. He has been appearing in traditional battleground states, including Wisconsin and Pennsylvania over the weekend, as the 81-year-old tries to silence doubts over his age and mental acuity.

Can you believe this?

Biden is so bad for the Democrat party that he may turn even New York red this year…

Even MSM sources like Politico are admitting this.

And yet, it doesn’t appear that Biden’s ego is going to let him go anywhere.

Unless the Democrats forcibly remove him with the 25th amendment, he’s likely to stay in the race.

He’s in it to win it!

Even President Trump thinks so.

So, let’s all hope Biden does just that and stays in the race…then, let’s see just how big of a red wave we can have on Election Day!

Remember, folks, President Trump says we need election turnout to be too big to rig…and with support for Biden slipping to absolutely dismal levels even in states like New York, it looks like we are certainly headed in that direction.
