Biden and Company are pushing the ‘experts’ view that the US Economy is ‘good and getting better’….
American’s are concerned about what they see and feel as HIGH Consumer Prices.…
When voters are NOT Happy with the Economy ?
American President get in trouble in the polls and vote….
Oh, and Biden’s party people do NOT like the term ‘Bidenomics’…..
“This week GDP growth was revised upward to 5.2% in the last quarter and this story’s economic focus is on how many times the House Dems have uttered a single particular word,” Michael Tyler, the Biden campaign’s communications director, told Axios in a statement.
How we got here: The White House began touting the catchphrase “Bidenomics” this year in an effort to change the troubling polling on the president’s economic record ahead of 2024.
- Biden was initially ambivalent about the term, then embraced it — but “Bidenomics” has recently disappeared from his prepared speeches, as NBC News reported.
- The White House and the Biden campaign have continued to use the term, and the president spoke at an event in Colorado this past week with “Bidenomics” signage.
Some Democratic lawmakers have publicly expressed concern about the messaging tactic over the past few months, even as they plan to campaign on economic success.
- “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,” Rep. Steven Horsford (D-Nev.) told Politico in September.
- In a major NYT/Siena poll in battleground states last month, voters were far more likely to say they trust former President Trump over Biden on the economy.
By the numbers: The term “Bidenomics” does not appear in any of the DCCC’s public press releases nor on the social media site X, formerly known as Twitter, according to analysis provided by a House Republican strategist and reviewed by Axios.
- DCCC Chair Suzan DelBene (D-Wash.) hasn’t used the term on her X or Facebook accounts….
The big picture: It’s not the first time there has been distance between the White House and House Democrats on economic messaging, and former President Obama similarly struggled with the issue ahead of 2012.
- The Biden team is largely dismissive of critics within their own party — a confidence forged by proving such doubters wrong in the past.
- In the months before the 2022 midterm elections, those critics included some members of Biden’s own Cabinet who repeatedly appealed to senior Biden advisers Anita Dunn and Mike Donilon to change the economic messaging, according to two people familiar with the conversations.
- In response, a WH official framed the conversations as constructive, telling Axios that the cabinet members “wanted to discuss and advise on messaging.”
- Democrats went on to have the best midterms in decades for a first-term president……
One might get the impression that this is NOT about anything except the Biden 2024 lackluster Presidental campaign so far?….
Joe Biden has been a pretty good President….
But his political efforts ARE lacking….
Democrats ARE quietly doing BETTER than the media would indicate in a LOT of post 2020 elections….
