Host of ABC's "This Week," George Stephanopoulos, said during a Sunday airing of his program that according to his network's polling, former President Donald Trump beats President Joe Biden in a 2024 presidential run.
"You know Donna, Chris Christie says this is slowly moving away from Donald Trump. And I think I actually agree with him. But the polling right now is not really showing that. It's showing, among Republican voters, he's holding firm. Our poll shows him defeating Joe Biden in 2024," Stephanopoulos said.
During the program, Stephanopoulos's statement was swiftly met with rebuke from guest and former Chair of the Democratic National Committee, Donna Brazile. But still, the former DNC chair offered no pushback that Trump would defeat Biden in 2024.
"Look," Brazile says, "Donald Trump — his house of cards is really crumbling down. He's under investigation just about everywhere. Too bad he's not in Louisiana. We'll put him under investigation just for showing up."
"Donald Trump is, at this point, the major player in the Republican party." Brazile continued. "… Donald Trump has got these candidates into the dance. Now they have to figure out if they know the groove. That's where Democrats will have an advantage because we have better candidates."
The report comes in light of others that Democrats may be pushing for another candidate in the upcoming presidential election. Recently, Dick Morris, an adviser to former President Bill Clinton, said that Democrats would try to run Hillary as a centrist in place of Biden, who ran his 2020 campaign on the moniker as a "uniter."
According to FiveThirtyEight's recent aggregate polling for Monday, 53% disapprove of Biden, while 42.7% approve of the president.
