Democrats have already moved past the 2022 Midterms and are onto the 2024 Presidential election.
But Joe Biden just dropped a bombshell.
And Democrats just announced this massive change to voting.
For decades, both Republicans and Democrats held their first four Presidential nominating contests in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada.
But woke left-wing radicals were chafed about the fact that both Iowa and New Hampshire’s populations are roughly 90% white, arguing that identity politics should play a role in the Party’s nominating calendar.
President Joe Biden finally weighed in, and proposed a radically new primary schedule for 2024 in which South Carolina would go first, followed by New Hampshire, Nevada, Michigan, and Georgia, completely removing Iowa from its decades-long leadoff position.
Democrats also moved to ban all caucuses – which Iowa has used for their Presidential Primary since 1972 – after the 2020 Iowa caucus fiasco that left the Party unable to determine who actually won the state.
“President Biden has asked leaders of the Democratic National Committee to make South Carolina the nation’s first primary state, followed by New Hampshire and Nevada a week later, and hold subsequent weekly primaries in Georgia and Michigan, according to Democrats briefed on the plans,” The Washington Post reported.
“The tectonic decision to remake his party’s presidential nominating calendar for 2024 came as a shock to party officials and state leaders who had been lobbying hard in recent weeks to gain a place in the early calendar, which historically attracts millions of dollars in candidate spending and attention,” the report continued. “While many in the party had long anticipated changes, the specific order Biden proposed had generated little if any chatter in Democratic circles. Much of the talk among Democrats had not focused much on either South Carolina going first or Georgia joining the early mix.”
“The proposal is likely to win approval from the Democratic officials, given the support from the leader of the party,” ‘The Post’ added. “By breaking with decades of tradition, Biden’s move is meant to signal his party’s commitment to elevating more variety — demographic, geographic and economic — in the early nominating process. Iowa, a largely White state that historically held the nation’s first Democratic caucus and experienced embarrassing problems tabulating results in 2020, would have no early role in the Biden plan.”
While Iowa and New Hampshire are not diverse, they are small states where retail politics matter, and their voters in both parties tend to take their duty as first in the nation primaries far more seriously than other states.
Such an environment allows underdog candidates, who may not get as much corporate-controlled media attention or be as well known, to build momentum by speaking directly to voters at town hall events without having to raise millions of dollars from special interests for TV ads.
But elitist career politicians, like Joe Biden, only care that the elimination of caucuses from the nominating process will favor establishment candidates.
In 2008, then-Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) won the Democrat nomination by out organizing Hillary Clinton in caucus states, like Iowa, and racking up a delegate lead that she could not overcome, even though the former First Lady won the vast majority of large primary states.
Under this current primary calendar proposed by Joe Biden, candidates like Hillary Clinton – who enter the race with a massive name ID and campaign war chest advantage – would clearly have the upper hand.
But, of course, that’s likely the point.
