There’s trouble with Team Biden…

According to a recent report from Axios, the Biden campaign is exiling aides who dare to question its strategy as the President continues to slide backward in polls.

The report notes that senior Democrats have expressed concerns that Biden’s path to victory “relies on voter concerns about Jan. 6, political violence, democracy and Donald Trump’s character.”

“It is unclear to many of us watching from the outside whether the president and his core team realize how dire the situation is right now, and whether they even have a plan to fix it,” one Democrat operative told Axios. “That is scary.”

Axios has more:

People close to the president told Axios they worry about raising concerns in meetings because Biden’s group of longtime loyal aides can exile dissenters.

“Even for those close to the center, there is a hesitance to raise skepticism or doubt about the current path, for fear of being viewed as disloyal,” a person in Biden’s orbit told Axios, speaking on condition of anonymity because of those dynamics. “There is not a discussion that a change of course is needed.”

The source of the enforced enthusiasm on the Biden campaign is reportedly top political aide Mike Donilon, who tells colleagues that “voters will do the right thing” and “Joe Biden is a great president, and great presidents get reelected.”

A 2022 Democrat campaign aide asserted that “2022 was a classic case of running away from a president, and their takeaway was, ‘Wow people really like us.’”

Fox News reported that an aggregate of network polls found dwindling support for President Biden among Black voters, down to 70% in 2024 from 86% in 2020. Trump, meanwhile, has cut into Biden’s coalition, according to polling, tripling his support from Black voters over the last four years, from 7% in 2020 to 21% in 2024.

  1. After watching videos of Biden’s performance at various events I am not sure how anyone can believe he is capable of performing the duties of the President. He gets easily confused and can’t find his way off the stage and he screws up very often during speeches. It will be interesting to see how he performs during the debate when he is not allowed to have cheat sheets.

  2. People keep going on about a Civil War. We have already had one. April 12, 1861, Franklin Delano Roosevelt born January 30, 1882, died April 12, 1945. The same day some 84 years later. May 26, 1865, was the declared day of the Civil War ending. It`s like Abraham Lincoln`s release from Earth`s bonds on April 15, 1865. He got to see the end of the Civil War. Franklin Delano didn`t. To not learn about history is to repeat itself. The sinking of the Titanic and income tax day all fall on the same day. The assassination of Joseph Masaria the Mafia crime leader died on April 15th as well.
