Democratic strategic James Carville stated that other Democrats are telling him to stop talking about President Joe Biden's weaknesses ahead of the 2024 election.
Carville has often spoken about his concern over Biden's attempt to win a second term as the nation's oldest-serving president.

"I’m looking at polling data, and I’m looking at all of it. The president’s numbers are just not good—and they’re not getting any better," Carville said.
"I talk to a lot of people who do a lot of congressional-level polling and state polling, and they’re all saying the same thing. There’s not an outlier; there’s not another opinion… The question is, has the country made up its mind?" he added.

"Nobody is saying, ‘James, you’re wrong,’" Carville explained, suggesting that while some Democrats agree with him, they find the information upsetting, according to the Messenger.
"They’re saying, ‘James, you can’t say that,’" he continued.
Carville says he simply speaking facts, sharing his concern that former President Donald Trump could likely beat Biden in a rematch next year.
The news comes as a growing number of national polls show Trump ahead or close to Biden in a hypothetical rematch.
The concerns also come as Biden faces additional challengers, including Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN) running against him in the primary. He also faces at least two third-party candidates, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Cornell West.
The numbers are not looking good for Biden, something Carville has been honest about but that other Democrats simply don't want anyone to mention as the battle continues for 2024.
