Hillary Clinton’s recent interview with Sky News has caused quite a stir in the political world. In it, she confidently predicted that Joe Biden will be re-elected in 2024 regardless of who the Republican candidate is. While her confidence in Biden’s abilities is admirable, it may be premature.
"So, he has been indicted… but he has said he is going to keep running."— Kyle Becker (@kylenabecker) April 18, 2023
"But even if he gets the Republican nomination, he cannot, in my view, be re-elected president."

Clinton cited Donald Trump’s criminal indictment and her belief that people are more onto him and his behavior than they were before as reasons why he cannot be re-elected. However, Trump’s hardcore support is likely to help him win the Republican nomination, and in a general election against Biden, he could still win.
Furthermore, Clinton’s dismissal of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as “unproven” and her belief that nobody outside of Florida knows much about him ignores the fact that he is a rising star in the Republican party with a strong base of support.
Clinton’s comments on abortion also highlight the contentious nature of the issue. While she believes that anti-abortion laws will have real-life consequences for women, many Republicans are pro-life and believe that the decision to have an abortion should be left to the states. It remains to be seen how this issue will play out in the next election.
In conclusion, Hillary Clinton’s overconfidence in Joe Biden’s re-election chances may be premature. While he may be the favorite to win, it’s important to remember that politics is never a sure thing. Republicans have a history of defying odds, and the next presidential election is no different. Both parties will need to work hard and strategize if they want to win in 2024.
