It also appears that despite the media narrative on Trump’s anti-immigration policies?
Trump’s constant harping on immigrants talking America jobs IS a concern….
With COVID-19 wreaking havoc on the economy and unemployment at its highest level in years, Team Biden believes it go on offense on the issue, which had long been a strength for Trump.
Polls continue to show that a majority approve of Trump’s handling of the economy, but Democrats see a vulnerability
“He’s hitting Trump right at the core,” said one Biden ally who speaks to the campaign regularly.
Biden leads Trump in many polls and across various policy areas including healthcare and the handling of the pandemic. But a CNBC All-Economic survey out late last month voters still preferred Trump when it came to the economy.
The poll showed Trump leading Biden 44 percent to 38 percent on which of the two men has the best economic policies.
For that reason, Democrats say it’s critical for Biden to hone in on the issue.
“The economy is the one issue area where voters give Trump the benefit of the doubt so it makes sense that Biden would focus on Trump’s economic record and economic politics, which, upon review, have not served the interests of working and middle class Americans,” said Democratic strategist Joel Payne. “If Biden can soften Trump up vis-a-vis the economy, the bottom could really fall out from under the president and his down ballot allies.”
On Tuesday, in an appearance in his hometown in Wilmington, Del., Biden will discuss his plans to build a clean energy economy. A campaign aide said the former vice president will talk in that context about job creation.
In the coming weeks, campaign officials say Biden will roll out two other initiatives as part of his populist plan aimed at keeping jobs at home. Biden will propose plans on making childcare more affordable as well as proposals aimed at advancing racial equity across the nation, including closing the racial wealth gap and expanding affordable housing.
That announcement is part of the $700 billion “Buy American” jobs plan Biden revealed last week, which outlines ways to revive the struggling economy with job creation across various sectors including manufacturing and clean energy. The plan is designed to take aim at Trump’s “America First” economic agenda….
One Democratic strategist said Biden should argue that Trump has done damage to the economy and continues to do so.
“He should be asking the typical question ‘Are you better off than you were four years ago?” I guarantee you that most people would look at where they are and say ‘Hell no.”
A Biden win will put the Democrat in the position he was in 12 years ago when he and President Obama got Bush II’s dropping economy. to deal with…
