Newest Biden administration plan unveils just how scared they really are

The Radical Left likes to act like they are not scared of Trump. But the truth is very different.

And the Biden administration’s newest plan unveils just how scared they really are.

The Biden administration is on a nationwide tour to convince Americans that the President’s economic policies, branded as “Bidenomics,” are working.

Vice President Kamala Harris is leading the charge in this public relations effort, focusing on key battleground states like Georgia and Michigan, as the economy remains a top concern for voters in the upcoming November elections.

Ken Kollman, director of the University of Michigan’s Center for Political Studies, noted, “The Biden campaign has to be very nervous about turnout problems among potential Democratic voters in Michigan and Georgia.”

Both states were crucial for Biden’s victory in 2020 when he narrowly defeated former President Donald Trump. “It’s likely that every sliver of turnout will matter in these states,” Kollman added.

The administration’s tour is a clear attempt to galvanize Democratic voters, particularly in critical swing states.

“It’s nothing new to quote James Carville’s ‘It’s the economy, stupid’ line, but the economy really consistently does play a major role in determining presidential outcomes,” explained Democratic strategist Kaivan Shroff.

Earlier this week, the White House officially announced the tour, starting with an event in Atlanta and another scheduled for Detroit.

“President Biden and I are committed to creating an economy in which every person has the freedom to thrive,” Harris said in a statement about the tour.

However, Harris’ remarks in Georgia, which targeted primarily Black entrepreneurs and lawmakers, seemed disconnected from the real economic concerns facing most Americans.

While the Biden administration touts legislation on infrastructure and manufacturing, average citizens are struggling with rising costs and economic instability.

Recent polling shows that Trump leads Biden in Georgia, 51% to 45%, highlighting the erosion of support for Biden, even among key Democratic demographics.

“The vice president’s economic opportunity tour is a way for the administration to highlight their actions to promote economic opportunity, especially for minority communities who will play a big role in this year’s election in swing states,” stated David Darmofal, a political scientist at the University of South Carolina.

Despite such attempts, the administration has faced criticism for not addressing the real issues impacting Americans, such as inflation, high gas prices, and diminished take-home pay.

Harris’ tour is also seen as an effort to shore up support in areas where Biden has faced challenges, such as Detroit, where recent polling indicates Trump holds an edge over the President, 49% to 46%.

“The big keys for Biden in Michigan and Georgia are to solidify the base and hold onto one key demographic: educated suburban voters,” said Anthony Michael Kreis, an assistant professor at Georgia State University College of Law.

However, even these traditionally Democratic voters are feeling the pinch of the Biden economy, with concerns over inflation and rising costs.

Michigan Republican strategist Jason Cabel Roe pointed out, “You can’t really dispute how much money Biden has spent trying to prop up the economy, which is why we have a $1.8 trillion deficit, a $35 trillion national debt, and record inflation.”

Roe emphasized that voters are dissatisfied with the current economic climate, criticizing the President for being “a feckless leader who can’t seem to manage anything competently.”

Kyle Kondik, managing editor of Sabato’s Crystal Ball at the University of Virginia Center for Politics, noted that Trump is relying on “nostalgia for the pre-COVID economy,” which resonates with many Americans.

Democratic strategist Max Burns acknowledged that while economic improvements are crucial, positive developments aren’t being felt by average voters.

He highlighted the importance of Biden’s retail politics, but even that may not be enough to sway voters.

In a statement, Trump campaign spokesperson Karoline Leavitt highlighted the contrast between Biden and Trump’s economic policies, stating, “Under President Trump, inflation was nonexistent, gasoline was cheap, groceries were affordable, and the American Dream was alive and well.”

Leavitt concluded that Michigan and Georgia’s families “cannot afford four more years of Joe Biden.”
