President Joe Biden should hit the campaign trail and start campaigning for the Democrats before the November election, despite his abysmal poll numbers, according to an adviser who told Fox News.
An adviser to the president said he “expects more POTUS” on the campaign trail as he begins to ramp up campaign support in recent weeks. The adviser said he would work to promote his agenda and “sharpen the contrast” between his administration and Republicans.
Republicans would have to have a successful election cycle in both chambers, which would ultimately make it much harder for Biden to accomplish any part of his radical agenda. The adviser alluded to Biden wanting to speak “directly to the American people about both what we’ve done and what we’re doing.”
“Elections are about choice,” the adviser said.
“You have President Biden and the Democrats in Congress who understand what people are going through and working every day to reduce costs for the American people,” the adviser tried to say, attempting to brag about Democrats’ accomplishments and insult the Republicans. “And you have Republicans who continue to stand in the way of that.”
It comes as a Morning Consult poll found Biden’s job approval is underwater in 40 states, many of which are key battleground states in which Democrats would need to hold seats to retain their majority. in the House and the Senate.
Perceptions of President Joe Biden’s job performance have deteriorated across most of the country in the first quarter of this year, compounding challenges for his party in key states ahead of this year’s widely overlapping midterm elections. the presidential card of 2024.
According to Morning Consult Political Intelligence’s quarterly tracker in all 50 states, more voters disapprove than approve of Biden’s performance in 40 states, following a double-digit drop in his net approval rating – the share of voters who less approve of the part that disapproves – since taking office in January 2021.
In addition to weak poll numbers from Biden, Labor Department data earlier this month showed the consumer price index rose 8.5% in March from a year ago – the largest year-on-year increase since December 1981. It also showed that overall food prices were up 8.8% from a year ago, meaning food from all the days have increased.
But the price of food wasn’t the only issue for American families. Americans have seen a substantial increase in their energy bills as inflation soars. Overall energy prices are up 32% from a year ago and 11.4% from February to March this year alone.
And since last March, oil is up 70.1%, up 22.3% in February alone. Auto fuel is also up 48.2% over the past 12 months, 19.8% from February alone.
