President Donald Trump (R) is leading President Joe Biden (D) in numerous polls including polls in Georgia and Michigan. Despite the growing lead when facing President Biden and the Republican challengers, Democrats are questioning if democracy can survive if President Trump wins the 2024 election.

During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin (D), who allegedly had previously considered launching a presidential campaign, discussed the threat that President Trump poses on democracy.

During the interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Senator Manchin criticized President Trump, warning that President Trump being elected could signal the end of democracy in the United States. Senator Manchin expressed that voters “should be concerned about the support that Donald Trump has.”

“Basically, he’s told us who he is,” Senator Manchin added, sharing that “when a person tells you who they are, you ought to believe them.”

“It’s not democracy as we know it, it’s not how the country has been able to survive through this experiment of ours for over 230 plus years,” Senator Manchin further explained, questioning that “here we are today now being threatened. Can democracy survive?”

A recent poll from the Associated Press and NORC Center for Public Affairs Research indicated that 62% of voters argue that democracy is at risk depending on who wins the 2024 presidential election.

President Trump has maintained that he is the best choice when compared to President Biden, arguing that he will keep the country out of World War 3 and that he will ensure that the United States is respected again abroad.

According to the latest Republican primary poll, President Trump is up 69% in support against his Republican challengers. Fewer than one third of Republican primary voters are backing President Trump’s challengers. Moreover, all of President Trump’s Republican challengers have lost support within the last month.
