On Friday, a young Democratic voter expressed his disillusionment with the Democratic Party, telling a Fox News panel he intends to vote for former President Donald Trump in the 2024 election.
The switch is due to repeated examples of incompetency from President Joe Biden and his administration.
“I’ve seen no form of accountability in this administration. I think this is what’s going to change my vote from formerly Joe Biden to Donald Trump,” 21-year-old Jahmiel Jackson told “Fox & Friends.”
“I have seen the pullout of Afghanistan from Joe Biden. And then I watched him check his watch during the funeral of the servicemen. And I think if we were to go to a war, I’m prime age to be drafted. And I don’t want him to check his watch while they’re burying me. I don’t believe that he’s a competent commander in chief. And then he’d probably blame my death on climate change in the same way he blamed the pullout in Afghanistan on Donald Trump.”
Republican voter Stacey Fox shared Jackson’s sentiment, arguing that voters need to focus on electing a president who can make tough decisions.
Fox asked, rhetorically, “Who’s going to have enough tenacity to make a decision and stick to it? Joe Biden can’t do that. I think Donald Trump, put him with a really strong vice president, will make those decisions, will pull our country out of the dumps that we’re moving into. And I’m really afraid for it if it doesn’t change.”
A Thursday poll from Fox News revealed that 61% of Americans believe that Biden does not have the mental soundness needed for the office of the presidency. This sentiment has risen steadily, up five points since last year, 13 points compared to 2021 and 16 points since 2020.
“I prefer someone who gets the job done,” Campus Reform correspondent Kristen Jackson told “Fox & Friends First” Friday. “I think we get into the identity politics of younger versus older race and all of that, and I don’t think that matters. I think if you’re competent enough to do the job and do it well and do it honestly, I strongly consider voting for you as a candidate to be the President of the United States.”
Campus Reform correspondent Marya Ruth Dunning added, “I think that the way to get young voters is definitely not to tell us that we’re stupid. And especially with Biden being unable to string a sentence together and Kamala barely being able to herself, it’s just an insult.”
Dunning also called out Vice President Kamala Harris for claiming to be a champion for women but refusing to stand up for them in the debate over protecting female athletes.
“Harris claims to be going on a college freedom tour, but she only wants freedom of expression for those who agree with her, with her far left brand of gender ideology,” she said.
Jackson, who considers himself a “conservative Democrat,” said he believes the party is in the process of picking another candidate.
“It’s only a matter of time before they [the media] start endorsing someone else,” he said of concerns surrounding the president’s mental competency. “I think they’re just giving him this off-ramp and telling him, ‘Just say it’s your age and walk off into the sunset.'”
