Some of President Biden’s top allies are urging him to ditch his “Bidenomics” message, arguing that it is no longer resonating with voters.
“The Bidenomics message is stale,” said one Democratic strategist. “It’s time for the president to pivot to a new message that is more focused on the kitchen table issues that voters care about.”
“With all due respect to the president, to the White House, this is not so much about them as it is the people who are benefiting by the policies that they came out and demanded,” Rep. Steven Horsford (D-NV), chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, said, according to POLITICO. “We have to do a better job framing this not so much for one person — for the office of the presidency — but for the people.”
Will Marshall, the Progressive Policy Institute President, said that the Biden administration’s economic message is not selling. The White House needs to change its tack to find a more promising line as Democrats prepare for the 2024 elections.
“At this point, Bidenomics doesn’t really have strong answers to people’s biggest worries,” Marshall said. “There ought to be a lot of thinking in the White House now about changes in the way they present their case for the economic good that this administration has done.”
An NBC News poll showed Republicans with the largest edge over Democrats on Americans’ perception of economic issues ever in the history of the poll.
The poll found that 49% of Americans favor Republican economic policy as opposed to 28% who favor Democrat policy. The poll also found Republicans with an advantage in a slate of other top issues.
“On this survey after 20 or 30 years, Republicans dealing with the economy [versus Democrats], immigration and crime are all at their all-time highs,” Republican pollster Bill McInturff said.
Democratic allies are encouraging President Joe Biden's reelection campaign to reevaluate and ditch the "Bidenomics" tagline as it fails to improve voter attitudes on the economy.https://t.co/HjqqPFbosb
