Former Obama adviser and communications director Dan Pfeiffer has some sobering advice for Democrats – you’re stuck with Joe Biden.
He still has the approval of approximately 80 percent of Democrats in most polls. His approval rating among Republicans is in the single digits. Among Independents, it’s typically in the 30s. Criticizing and weakening a President who eight in ten of our most reliable voters support is a terrible way to achieve our goal.
These are going to be really tough elections. I hold out hope (and even have some optimism) that Biden’s numbers will rebound later this year. But in the meantime, there will be enormous pressure on Democrats in tough races to run away from President Biden.
Good luck with that strategy.
