Former Obama advisor and MSNBC contributor Jennifer Palmieri has warned that President Joe Biden’s 2024 campaign does not stand a chance heading into the election year.
Host Willie Geist asked Pamieri how she would feel “right now holding the hand that Joe Biden has, turning into an election year?”
“I would think, it’s super scary. The fate of the Republic is hanging in the balance, and there are polls that have Donald Trump leading right now, but I would have faith that.”
“To Eugene’s point on the economy, we know that the Federal Reserve is planning on lowering rates. We know that is something that can — that is — that is something that signals to actual consumers, real voters, things are different and things are improving,” Palmieri said.
“You hear that when you hear about people not liking Biden’s economic policies, if you dig underneath that, interest rates are a big part of that,” Palmieri continued.
“I would feel good about making the economic argument. I would feel great about being able to make the argument against what the sort of threat that Trump represents,” she said.
“And we can use Ron DeSantis talking about Trump weaponizing government. We can use Chris Christie’s voice talking about the danger that Trump represents.”
“So it’s not just going to be Biden, but there is just this scary thing that overhangs everything about whether we’re just too divided.”
“It’s just too late. There’s too many silos,” Palmieri added.
“How am I going to reach all of the voters I need to reach given all the media silos that there are? I mean, that is what I would be churning on every day is just sort of the mechanics of getting that message out,” Palmieri added.
Biden is continuing to suffer in the polls.
Earlier in December, A CNN host appeared visibly disturbed when reporting on new polling showing former President Donald Trump decimating Joe Biden in two key swing states.
The host of CNN’s “Early Start,” Kasie Hunt, looked shocked while reporting that Trump is leading Biden by 10 points in Michigan and five points in Georgia.
These are the two states that Biden won in 2020 but went to Trump in 2016 before he ultimately won the election.
“The news is not great for President Biden,” Hunt said as she reported on results showing Trump leading Biden 49% to 44% in Georgia and 50% to 40% in Michigan.
“Trump’s margin over Biden is significantly boosted in both states by people who say they did not vote in 2020,” Hunt added.
“These less engaged voters favored Trump by 26 points in Georgia and by 40 points in Michigan,” she said.
