Biden was attacked on air by this major ally he thought he could trust

Joe Biden has been losing support among every key demographic including his own allies. But people were shocked when things got out of hand.

And Biden was attacked on air by this major ally he thought he could trust.

In a shocking exchange over the weekend, CNN anchor Jake Tapper expressed his concern that President Joe Biden’s unpopularity is severely impacting the Democrat ticket, based on newly released polling data.

Tapper made these remarks during an interview with Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

The discussion opened with Tapper addressing the significant challenge President Biden faces in key battleground states, where polls show him trailing former President Donald Trump.

“Let’s talk about the campaign because Trump was in battleground Michigan last night making a pitch to African-American voters,” Tapper began.

“Polls show Biden trailing Trump in key battleground states and polling well behind your Senate colleagues who are running for reelection.”

Tapper then highlighted stark contrasts from a recent New York Times poll. “Look at this New York Times poll from last month,” he continued.

“Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin is up nine points in Wisconsin. Biden’s only up two points. Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey up five in PA. Biden’s down three. Arizona Congressman Ruben Gallego, running for Senate in Arizona, up four, Biden down seven. Nevada Senator Jacky Rosen up two in Nevada. Biden’s down 12.”

Tapper’s pointed question cut to the heart of the matter: “How can you look at this, these statistics, these numbers and not conclude that Joe Biden is a drag on the ticket?”

Senator Murphy attempted to downplay the polling data, claiming that the elections would ultimately yield different results, and dismissed the New York Times/Sienna poll as just “one poll.”

Murphy’s dismissal, however, seems unconvincing given that the New York Times/Sienna poll is widely respected as one of the most accurate in the political arena.

Tapper, not satisfied with Murphy’s response, reiterated his point. “I mean, you’re happy for your colleagues, I’m sure, but Biden is underpolling all of them,” he pressed.

Murphy’s rebuttal—that there were “60 other polls that show that Joe Biden is in the lead”—fell flat, particularly as he could not name any specific polls to support his claim.

The exchange highlighted the growing anxiety within the Democratic Party about Biden’s ability to lead the ticket in 2024.

The President’s approval ratings have plummeted, fueled by widespread dissatisfaction with his handling of the economy, rising crime rates, and the ongoing border crisis.

These issues are not only eroding Biden’s support but also casting a shadow over the entire Democratic ticket.

The Biden administration has faced intense criticism for its handling of key issues. Inflation remains high, and the cost of living continues to strain American families.

Gas prices, grocery bills, and housing costs have all surged under Biden’s watch, prompting many voters to question his leadership.

Moreover, crime rates in many Democrat-run cities have skyrocketed, further eroding public confidence.

Biden’s border policies have also come under fire. The administration’s perceived leniency has led to record numbers of illegal immigrants crossing into the United States, exacerbating the border crisis.

This has not only heightened security concerns but also placed significant strain on local resources in border states.

Against this backdrop, Biden’s declining poll numbers are hardly surprising. The New York Times poll highlighted by Tapper shows Biden trailing Trump in several key states that will be crucial in the 2024 election.

The data suggests that Biden’s unpopularity could have a detrimental effect on down-ballot Democrats, making it harder for the party to retain control of Congress.

Jake Tapper’s interview with Senator Chris Murphy underscores a critical issue facing the Democratic Party: President Biden’s declining popularity is dragging down the entire ticket.

With key battleground states slipping away and voters expressing deep dissatisfaction with his leadership, the road to 2024 looks increasingly challenging for the Democrats.

As the election approaches, the party must grapple with the reality that Biden’s unpopularity could have far-reaching implications for their electoral prospects.
