As we near November, political strategists will begin analyzing the electoral map. Certain states are considered “blue” and others “red.” It is expected those states will go for the liberal or conservative candidates, respectively.
Then, there are the “swing” states over which both parties will be fighting furiously.
But Biden might have more battlegrounds than he previously expected. Because a decidedly “safe” state is experiencing something of a mutiny. A group of voters are turning on Biden in a big way.
A number of objections have been filed by voters in Illinois against Joe Biden in an attempt to keep him off the state ballot.
The move to prove that the president is “ineligible” to run in the 2024 election comes amid a wave of attempts to remove his predecessor, Donald Trump, from ballots in states across the country.

Several Illinois residents have filed with the State Board of Elections to trike Bidne off the ballot. They are claiming the president is “ineligible” to run in the 2024 Election. These voters have accused Biden of aiding or comforting the country’s enemies, since his time as senator.
Their main focus seems to be on the border crisis. These voters have claimed Biden is aiding nations like China and Iran and drug cartels like the Sinaloa Cartel and MS-13. Because Biden appears to be neglecting the massive flood of illegal immigration, these voters made this accusation.
It’s unclear if the state will take these objections seriously. But for a blue state to see challenges to Biden’s eligibility will be seen as ironic by many. Democrats and anti-Trumpers in at least 27 states have tried to remove Trump from the ballot.
Red states have mulled their own form of “revenge” by considering doing the same to Joe Biden. For voters in a blue state to mount their own campaign, suggests Biden isn’t in nearly as safe a place as his handlers might have thought.
