Donna Brazile, a top Democratic strategist, warns of a looming crisis as President Biden’s approval ratings take a nosedive in the latest national poll.
The latest national poll numbers paint a grim picture for the Biden administration and the Democratic Party. According to the Washington Post-ABC News survey, President Biden’s approval rating has dropped by 6 percentage points between February and May, with only 36 percent of respondents approving of his work. Even more alarming is the fact that only 18 percent of respondents strongly approve of Biden’s handling of his job as president.
The poll also revealed that former President Donald Trump would beat Biden in a head-to-head matchup in 2024 by 6 percentage points, with 44 percent of respondents favoring Trump over the 38 percent who preferred Biden. This news is a major blow to the Democrats with the 2022 midterms on the horizon.
Democratic strategist Donna Brazile spoke out about the poll numbers, warning her party to “wake up” and take notice. Brazile expressed her concern over the “fragmented” state of the coalition that elected Biden, and noted that Democrats are still struggling to connect with voters. She also warned that if Democrats fail to make a bottom-up campaign and connect with voters, they will struggle in the 2022 midterms.
The poll also revealed that only 30 percent of Americans approve of Biden’s handling of the economy, and inflation is taking its toll on his ratings. The recent surge in inflation has caused a sharp increase in consumer prices, which could potentially hurt the Democrats’ chances in the midterms.
Biden’s approval ratings have been declining steadily over the past few months, with his ratings dropping by 10 percentage points since December. The decline in approval ratings is likely due to a combination of factors, including the failing economy, border crisis, inflation, the world on the brink of world war 3, Biden’s refusal to hold a press conference, and Americans lack of trust in his mental abilities.
The Democrats must find a way to stop the bleeding and reconnect with their base if they hope to win in 2022. This will require a bottom-up campaign strategy that focuses on connecting with voters and promoting policies that will improve their lives. Failure to do so could result in disastrous losses for the party in the midterms, and a potentially devastating defeat in the 2024 presidential election.
The declining approval ratings of President Biden are a clear indication that the Democratic Party is in trouble. Donna Brazile’s warning should not be taken lightly, and the party needs to focus on reconnecting with voters and promoting policies that will improve their lives. With the 2024 presidential elections on the horizon, the Democrats must act fast to stop the bleeding and regain their momentum. The road ahead will not be easy, but with the right strategy and leadership, the party can turn things around and emerge stronger than ever.
