National polling averages actually show Donald Trump ahead of Joe Biden by less than. 2% points which could be the margin of error in most polls….
Democrat’s have been doing BETTER in most poast 2020 elections….
And polls that have ‘likely voters’ vs overall voters show Biden ahead by more that national polling….
David Axelrod hasn’t made Democrats happy with his ‘very dark’ comments abouth the Biden campaign….

Those defending the president’s chances argue that the choice will be clear once voters are actually faced with Trump on the general election ballot — a long 10 months away.
“I’m very bullish on President Biden’s reelection in 2024. The economy is strong, we’ve recovered from COVID, and we are once again respected in the world. Most importantly, he’s restored a sense of normalcy after four years of President Trump’s chaos,” said David Thomas, a former aide to Vice President Al Gore.
“Does work remain? You bet,” added Thomas, a partner at Mehlman Consulting. “But if you ask the question in November: ‘Are you better off than you were four years ago?’ I believe a majority of Americans will answer a resounding yes.”
Negative commentary around Biden’s chances has notably come from former President Obama’s senior adviser David Axelrod, who said last month that new polling showing Biden’s approval rating hitting 37 percent is “very, very dark” for his reelection campaign….
Former Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) called it “unfortunate” that Democrats aren’t all rallying around Biden yet.
“If the shoe was on the other foot, Republicans would not be behind the scenes poking needles into the back of their nominee, especially as a presidential incumbent. And that’s unfortunate we see that happening right now with Democrats,” he said. “At the end of the day, people need to come home to Joe Biden, and I think they will.”

The U.S. economy is on track to finish 2023 with low unemployment, steady economic growth and significantly slower inflation. But Biden’s attempt to sell his economic agenda and tout it as a success is falling flat with voters….
