Former President Donald Trump’s November 15 announcement has stirred excitement among an unexpected group — Democrats.
When Trump addressed the media at his Mar-a-Lago residence nearly two weeks ago to announce his 2024 White House bid, he made the one group he didn’t expect to please happy.
Democrats had plenty to be thankful for over Thanksgiving, as many within the Democratic Party believe Trump has too many flaws to win a general election.
Democrats want the legally embattled former President to be the GOP’s 2024 nominee, viewing him as an easy candidate to beat.
They claim the environment is different from 2016 when Trump was first elected. But it’s not only a different environment that excites Democrats.
Democrats are reassured by voters knowing what emerges from a Trump presidency. Trump being the so-called “easiest candidate to beat” also gives Democrats hope for 2024, an election cycle that will likely be fraught with challenges for the party.
Vermont Governor Howard Dean (D) expressed his satisfaction that Trump threw his hat into the ring.
Dean, a former Presidential candidate, explained on SiriusXM’s “The Briefing with Steve Scully,” that he warned Democrats in 2016 about Trump’s ability to win the general election.
But Dean noted on Saturday that the tide had turned since then, he insisted that voters were tired of “divisiveness,” “lies,” and “inflammatory stuff” synonymous with Trump.
Dean even explained his belief that Democrats could flip more states in 2024 than they did in 2020, should Trump be the nominee.
