Democrat Pramila Jayapal, who currently chairs the House Progressive Caucus, issued a harsh reality check for her Party, warning they are in “deep trouble” ahead of the 2024 election.
During an appearance on Jen Psaki’s show, “Inside with Jen Psaki,” Jayapal reacted to a New York Times and Siena College poll showing former President Donald Trump is up, big time.
According to the poll, Trump is leading in five of six swing states, with Joe Biden only leading in Wisconsin.
Trump is now leading in the following states:
A four-point lead in Pennsylvania.
A five-point lead in Michigan and Arizona.
A lead of six percentage points in Georgia.
Notably, Trump is also leading in Nevada by 10 percentage points, a state that a Republican president has not carried for almost 20 years.
Jayapal reacted to the poll, warning Democrats that their prospect for 2024 does not look good.
“I will tell you, this is the first time, Jen, that I have felt like the 2024 election is in great trouble for the president and for our democratic control, which is essential to moving forward,” Jayapal said.

Jayapal was also asked whether Biden is complicit in “genocide” due to US support for Israel.
Psaki pressed Jayapal over whether she agreed with fellow Democrats like Rashida Tlaib, who accused the president of supporting genocide in Gaza.
“We will remember in 2024,” the “Squad” Democrat said in a video statement.
“Language also matters, and genocide is defined as the internet intentional destruction of an entire ethnic or religious group and a lot of people do listen to statements made by members of Congress,” Psaki said.
“So I just wanna be clear; do you agree with the description of this as genocide and the president’s role in that?”
“I am not willing to say that yet,” the congresswoman answered.
“But I will just tell you that Rashida is not the first person to say this.”
“There are credible reports from agencies across the world and, you know, the United Nations has said we are hurtling towards the genocide of Palestinians.”
“That is not an isolated view.”
We need a ceasefire to ensure the safe return of hostages, the delivery of desperately needed humanitarian aid, and a real plan for how to move forward.— Rep. Pramila Jayapal (@RepJayapal) November 5, 2023
