The White House is panicking after this Democrat Senator dropped a major reality check

The 2024 election may already be decided. People haven’t voted with ballots, but their minds are made up.

And now the White House is panicking after this Democrat Senator dropped a major reality check.

Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) revealed Tuesday his belief that former President Donald Trump will decisively defeat President Biden in the upcoming November election.

Bennet, 59, was reportedly among three Democratic senators who voiced concerns during a caucus lunch Tuesday, emphasizing that the 81-year-old president is at risk of losing to Trump following his disastrous June 27 debate performance.

“Donald Trump is on track, I think, to win this election, and maybe win it by a landslide,” the Colorado senator said on CNN.

Bennet also predicted that a Trump victory would lead to Republican majorities in both the Senate and the House.

“This race is on a trajectory that is very worrisome if you care about the future of this country,” Bennet said, stopping short of urging Biden to end his re-election bid.

“Joe Biden was nine points up at this time – the last time he was running” the senator pointed out. “Hillary Clinton was five points up.”

“It’s a moral question about the future of our country, and I think it’s critically important for us to come to grips with what we face if together, we put this country on the path of electing Donald Trump again,” Bennet said of his decision to publicly share his concerns about the November 5 election.

“I think that we could lose the whole thing,” Bennet reiterated.

Sens. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) and Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) reportedly joined Bennet in expressing concern about the state of the race on Tuesday, but Bennet would not confirm what the vulnerable Senate incumbents said during the lunch.

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) has reportedly drafted a letter, yet to be published, calling on Biden to step aside. Other elected Democrats, such as Massachusetts Gov. Maura Healey, have also suggested that Biden should exit the race.

“I’m sure President Biden has a different view of his prospects in this election than I do, but we should be having a discussion about that,” Bennet argued.

The Colorado senator criticized the White House for failing to present a plan to win the election or secure critical swing states in November.

“They need to do that,” he insisted.

“They have to address the American people’s concerns,” Bennet declared.

“If we just sit on our hands, if we say we’re going to disregard what is plainly in front of us and plainly in front of the American people and we end up electing Donald Trump again as president of the United States, that’s going to be a huge tragedy beyond epic proportion,” he added. “And it’s something I can’t live with.”

Bennet noted that he did not hear any Senate Democrats explicitly call on Biden to drop out of the race during Tuesday’s Senate meeting.

Despite plunging poll numbers and concerns about his mental fitness, President Biden has vowed to stay in the race. At 81, Biden is the oldest president in American history and would be 86 by the end of a second term.
