Here's a List of Some Top Democratic 2024 Hopefuls

Democrats Reveal 2024 Hopefuls

( – Many people are focused on the 2024 general election, particularly the slate of presidential hopefuls. Americans are keeping a close eye on the massive pool of potential candidates. Republicans haven’t been keen on announcing their intentions to run. Former President Donald Trump remains a wildcard at the moment, and conventional wisdom says Florida Governor Ron DeSantis wants to toss his hat into the ring. On the other hand, Democrats have several hopefuls looking toward the next presidential campaign cycle.

Biden on the Back Burner?

President Biden won the votes of enough individuals in 2020 to claim an Electoral College victory and take up residency in the White House. However, his approval ratings have tanked to unprecedented lows in recent months, and many potential voters would like to see someone else win the Democratic nomination.

The New York Times and Siena College recently confirmed that trend in a recent poll, with a large number of Democrats also citing concern over Biden’s advanced age. Nevertheless, the poll found that if there were to be a rematch of the 2020 presidential election, a majority of Democrats would vote for Biden, but that’s only if he went against Trump.

Does this mean Biden’s party wants to put him on the back burner and let someone else take the reins?

Bernie’s Back

Independent Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont has been a favorite among Democrats, regularly making the list of top presidential hopefuls. Sanders’s campaign has indicated the independent may run in 2024 if Biden decides not to go for a second term. The 80-year-old senator had previously mentioned it wasn’t likely he’d ever run again, but he’s seemingly changed his mind. In light of the possible interest, The Washington Post boosted him to its Top 10 Democratic Candidates for 2024 after failing to include Sanders in its previous rankings.

Carolina Curveball

While Governor Roy Cooper of North Carolina only ranked ninth on The Washington Post’s list, CNBC recently found that his state enjoys the nation’s top economy. Many voters expressed their top concern moving into the midterm election was finances. The same could be true in 2024, giving Cooper a pretty good shot.

The Democrat’s secret to political success? The Tar Heel governor and lawmakers have put political differences aside to pass meaningful legislation. The choice paid off, but running the federal government is a bit more complex.

Other familiar Democrats made the Top 10, such as Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), California Governor Gavin Newsom, Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA), Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, and Senator Amy Klobuchar (MN), Vice President Kamala Harris, and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

Are these the best and brightest candidates the Democratic Party has to offer? What do you think about this list of potential presidential nominees?
