Pence preps for potential 2024 presidential run amid rocky headlines about relationship with Trump

Mike Pence is adding staffers for his brand-new office in downtown Washington -- inching closer to a possible White House run even as his standing worsens with Trump and his base of supporters.

Pence isn't waiting to make up with his former running mate -- nor is he waiting for the former President to make up his own mind about his political future. People around Pence rejected the idea that he would hold off on his 2024 planning until Trump announces whether he'll run.

Trump is never going to be on another ticket. Also, even he if he were, he'd never partner w/ DeSantis.

Wait until the Republican primary (because Trump is going to make this as difficult as possible for the GOP and make the whole thing about him). But just wait - he's going to completely attack DeSantis.

If you thought losing re-election was tough for Trump, just wait until the GOP tries to move beyond him. Ha!

You make an excellent point about Christian extremists and the Supreme Court. And Today’s Republican Party will not nominate anyone who doesn’t support the right-wing Christian agenda.

Trump voters, if they could be pried off Trump’s neck, want someone just like him who can casually riff for hours making fun of [whomever] and uttering sarcastic jibes and feeding their grievances. A performer. Otherwise they lose interest. Some will still vote but so far I don’t see any contenders who can stir them up like Trump can. He’ll make a play that he’s running again but that’s just as a spoiler to screw up the Republican race.

Unfortunately, I’m not confident about the Dem side. Biden is doing well enough with the mess he landed in but his age is worrisome. Plus he originally said he’d only do one term. Harris is not getting the warm and fuzzies as VP (contrast with Biden’s Diamond Joe/sunglasses cool when he was VP to Obama) but she’s next in line and being pushed aside for a shiny new guy would be just as bad.

by Anonymousreply 64September 18, 2021 2:08 PM

R64, I agree, I really think Biden is doing an excellent job, especially with the mess he was handed (just like Obama and Clinton), but I have noticed he’s walking a little more delicately. I’m hoping he can physically maintain the pace—I would understand if he lost a step or two over the years, though. So far, mentally, he seems very sharp. His few gaffes (and there aren’t many at all), are all probably related to the the pressures of the job and remembering the jillions of things that are part of it. If Joe can maintain that, and also not lose too much physically, he will do fine in 2024.

I like Kamala a lot. It’s really hard to gauge how the VP is doing, since they’re usually just figure heads, and in addition, we know she’s a lightning rod for all the racist right wing Fox viewers. Generally, VPs have a hard time being elected president. The only recent one was H.W., and he was voted out after one term. The ones before him lost.

R66, Biden won with the largest majority in a Presidential election ever - for some reason (could it be the U.S. media always leans right?), people want to give MORE credit to Trump for coming in 2nd place with 7M fewer votes. Ok. Uh huh.

However, you're right when you say if it hadn't been for COVID Trump would probably still be President. Or, if Trump had actually led during the pandemic and handled it properly, he could've turned it into a BIG win. However, 8 or 9 months was a long time in Trump's presidency and for 4 years he never did ONE thing to try and increase his share of the electorate - in fact, he actually minimised it. So, who knows? He's definitely not winning again. He doesn't have the votes. And regardless of what the right-leaning media likes to say, 70% or more of the American people support Biden's policies, even the Afghanistan withdrawal. I bet Biden will run for re-election again at the top of the ticket and Kamala can try her hand after his 2nd term.

“ One of many very scary realities of our current political system, which Republicans have massive advantages that will continue to grow.”

Care to explain how these advantages will continue to grow? What is growing is diversity. By leaps and bounds. The Census was bad news for Republicans. And rural white people are dying on the vine. Sure, Republicans may have advantages in the short term. But that’s poised to change, irrespective of voter suppression and gerrymandering.

Who does he think will vote for him?? The Trumptards literally want him dead. Obviously no liberals or moderates want him. Who is his base?

I don't understand how Pence could be so oblivious - his own party doesn't like him anymore. As for the Dems, I'm not sure Joe is up for another term and I'm unimpressed with Kamala. Wonder who will be the Dem's pick.

The presidential race doesn't really heat up for another year or two, when the landscape will probably look quite different than it does these days.

If the Dems manage to keep the Senate next year, someone needs to do an intervention with Breyer to get Harris on the court!

Here's perhaps a dirty little secret, or massive elephant in the room: some Hispanic voters are coming to see Dems as "the party of the blacks"?

I know that will cause massive FF and flaming, but I believe it's at least a factor?

by Anonymousreply 136October 3, 2021 1:32 PM

If Democrats are the party of the blacks (and Muslims) - where does that leave gays? Someone in that tent is going to have to bend and it’s not going to be blacks or Muslims.

Pence knows that the only way to stay relevant is to be a potential presidential candidate. It means bigger audiences and more money in his pocket.

He wont run against Trump. He may make a run if Trump doesn't. There's a lane for him if he runs. You dont need much more than 33% in most primaries to win. While hardcore trumpists might not vote for him, plenty of suburban conservatives and more casual trump fans might if Trump is not running

Don't be so sure about Trump. A million things can change in politics between now and then. Biden may be having some challenges now, but this time period is only a snapshot of his entire term.

It's going to be difficult, but if Trump runs, then the country will have to mobilize to defeat him again as it did in 2020.

I wonder if the Dems are in serious trouble as so many seem to be more independent and don't support the craziness the Dems stand for at times.

I agree. Very few people seem to understand the conservativeness of many Hispanics - they are over represented in the military and the police.

And they don't like being lumped into the "minority" category.

I want Pence to run so he can split the vote between Trump and himself.

He certainly feels a sense of divine mission. Let's see if he is truly blessed.

R150, the evidence is so “staggering” that none of it has been proven, even in heavily Republican areas. It’s all in your daft mind, baby.

At this point, it's downright pathetic that Mikey feels he has even a remote chance at this given that the base would be fine with having him tarred and feathered.

Don't dismiss Trump picking Lindsey Graham as his running mate. Graham has a big mouth, no principles, loves being on camera, and is infatuated with Trump.

It's way too early but I don't think Pence would win - low energy, not charismatic. I just had a look at polls of a hypothetical Republican primary and Trump is still topping those, with De Santis next.

Pence has garnered the housefly delegation, though their offspring, thus far are polling as MAGAts.

So, this evil psychopath is going to base part of his campaign on how much he dislikes an overprivileged, corrupt pig like Trump, even though he will follow very similar policies and adopt an almost identical ideological model? Yes, I am sure that this will fascinate most of the electorate... 🙄

by Anonymousreply 161October 21, 2021 9:48 AM

I don't know how he manages the nomination when a majority, or at least a strong plurality, of their base positively loathes him as a traitor? Moreover, even if he did somehow manage to wrangle the actual nomination, Trump's dead-enders would sit on their hands all day on Election Day rather than cast a ballot.

2024 needs someone new. I didn't really like any of the democratic candidates in 2020. (and obviously not the republican one.)

Isn't there some smart competent non-polarizing governor or congress person who could burst on the scene? (sort of like Obama did?)

Tulsi? She was my favorite candidate of either party in 2020.

Since Biden seems to just do what his staff tells him (as have lots of presidents) why not continue that tradition but get a president/spokesperson with some pizzazz who can work a crowd up and make us feel happy.

Gaga? Are you on the DL. Please run.
