Barack Obama is reportedly in panic mode at the prospect of Joe Biden losing to former president Donald Trump in November, urging him to quit the 2024 race and save the Democrat Party.
Over recent weeks, we’ve reported on Obama’s concerns about Biden’s presidential campaign. A source close to Obama said the former president admitted that Biden would like to “lose” to Trump.
Meanwhile, key Obama strategist David Axelrod urged Biden to either ramp up his efforts or drop out of the 2024 race altogether.
“My feeling is either get out or get going.”
The panic really set in when Trump began building momentum with his recent victories in Iowa and New Hamshire, exposing how weak Biden’s campaign is.
However, Biden is under the delusion that he is doing a great job.
But the majority of voters do not agree.
PJ Media reported:
“Insiders snitched that tensions between the two presidents recently exploded after irate Obama rushed to a secret meeting and confronted Biden about his fading chances to fend off surging Republican candidate Donald Trump in the upcoming November election,” explains the report. Incredibly, Joe seems almost oblivious to the lack of excitement about his campaign and cratering approval ratings. Recent polls show a scant 38 percent of American’s approve of his performance with a whopping 58 percent holding a negative opinion of his word.
According to sources, Obama has ensured trusted aides are constantly on Joe Biden’s side on the campaign trail to ensure he doesn’t say the wrong thing.

Meanwhile, other insiders believe Biden’s best approach to the 2024 race is to stay “hidden,” like he did in 2020.
As we reported on Wednesday, former Obama official turned CNN commentator Van Jones urged Joe Biden to stay hidden because he lacks public communication skills.
“If I were Biden, I would stay hidden,” Jones said on CNN.
“I will tell you why. He doesn’t inspire confidence. He is not a great messenger for himself.”
Others are calling for Biden to drop the “Bidenomics” message.
Former 2020 Biden campaign advisor Symone Sanders-Townsend said, “They are not going to get ‘Bidenomics.’ Let it go,”
“How about you just make sure they know what you’re going to do and what you did?”
“You can give folks all the numbers about GDP and all these other things, but the data doesn’t move people. Stories move people,” she added.
Biden’s approval rating sits at just 31%, according to a national survey produced for ABC by Langer Research Associate.
A whopping 58% of respondents disapprove of Biden’s job as president, the poll found.
It’s not looking good for Biden.
