The Biden administration really isn’t going all that well, if we’re being honest, and there are plenty of doubts about the incumbent President’s political future.
Sleepy Joe has managed to break a number of modern records as it pertains to high inflation and low approval ratings, all while consistently suggesting that he’ll be running for office again in 2024. This, in spite of serious and prolonged public criticism of the idea coming from his own party.
This week, a new piece of reporting seems to suggest that the Democrats will be having a heck of a time convincing him to step aside in 2024.
President Joe Biden’s top aides have been quietly building a 2024 campaign effort, with increasing discussions about who might manage the operation, potential themes and structure, according to nine people familiar with the planning.
The current plan is for a Biden re-election effort to rely heavily on the resources of the Democratic National Committee and only have a small campaign staff, a cost-saving configuration that follows the model of then-President Bill Clinton’s re-election bid and dramatically differs from then-President Barack Obama’s campaign, these people said.
His team is even working up potential themes…
Biden and his top advisers also are using the homestretch to November’s midterm elections to test possible 2024 themes, the people familiar with the discussions said, such as taking on wealthy special interests and casting his achievements in office as “promises made, promises kept.”Advertisement - story continues below
“The implicit contrast on ‘promises kept’ is clear and sharp,” said Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., a key Biden ally. “Former President Trump talked about fixing American infrastructure so often it became a running joke on late-night shows. President Biden actually got a bipartisan, strong infrastructure investment bill into law.”
The news will certainly irk Democrats like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who’ve already had trouble dancing around the idea of supporting Biden in the next presidential race.
