Axios: "Some Democrats" Worry That Biden Is Wrapping the Biden Economy Around His Own Neck

Axios reports that their Democrat friends and sex-partners are getting worried about Gammy Biden.

Why It Matters: Axios is Politico for Kidz! (TM) and millions of children 13 and under form their political opinions based on what Axios lies about.

The Biden re-election campaign's decision to brand the economy under the president's name (Bidenomics) is looking like an early blunder that misread the public's deep pessimism about how things are going on that front.

Why it matters: Despite some encouraging economic trends -- unemployment is low, inflation seems to be tamed -- polling shows that Americans' overall perception of the economy is sour.

Driving the news: Some prominent Democrats are now openly criticizing the Biden campaign's strategy, arguing that it appears to be in denial of Americans' economic reality.

"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.

"I've never understood why you would brand an economy in your name when the economy hasn't fully recovered yet," Michael LaRosa, a former spokesman for Jill Biden, told the publication.

"Whatever stories Americans are told about the strength of the economy under President Joe Biden, they are not going to be persuaded to look past the issue of their own living standards," liberal economist James Galbraith wrote.


His campaign ads laud the passage of COVID emergency funds, the bipartisan infrastructure law, the Inflation Reduction Act and funding for semiconductor manufacturing.

But so far, the message isn't resonating -- especially among the working-class Americans he's trying to win over. Polling indicates that college-educated voters are generally satisfied with the state of the economy, but voters living paycheck to paycheck are disillusioned.

By the numbers: Only 28% of Americans said they were "very" or "somewhat" satisfied with the state of the economy in a new NBC poll -- the lowest level of economic satisfaction in nearly a decade of the network's polling.

Biden's economic approval rating sits at 37%, with 59% of respondents expressing disapproval of his performance.

The NBC survey showed that Republicans hold a whopping 21-point advantage over Democrats on the economy (49%-28%), the largest lead Republicans have held in 32 years.

The poll also shows that Democrats only hold a 2-point edge (36%-34%) on looking out for the middle class, an area in which the party typically holds a significant advantage.

What Comes Next: Democrats begin asking "how do we get grandpa to step down from his role as the country's CEO?"

The Wall Street Journal reports this morning Democrats' "fears are growing" that voters may not buy their spin that Joe Biden is mentally competent enough for this term, let alone another. And they wonder how -- and if -- they can pull the plug to salvage the 2024 electoral cycle:
Conversations with more than a dozen leading Democrats revealed the pervasive, but mostly private, sense of worry that hangs over the race. Some compare this moment to the 2016 cycle when many top Democrats brushed aside Hillary Clinton's vulnerabilities only to watch her ultimately lose to Trump. But this is in many ways a different case--a sitting president facing clear frustration from voters, including those within his own party.

"It is a little bit like your grandfather running the company and you know that he's at a point now where the heirs could suffer value if we don't change management at the top," said Philip Levine, a former Democratic mayor of Miami Beach, Fla., who has expressed support for No Labels, a centrist group that has suggested it may run a third-party candidate. "And this is very difficult. How do we get grandpa to relinquish the CEO role?"

Other Democrats would only echo those sentiments in private. Said one member of the Democratic National Committee: "It would be irresponsible for us to not be concerned at this point. People can be hopeful about what the result is going to be. But we don't have any evidence as to why we should be hopeful. The polling is bad. The approval ratings are bad. We know about concerns about both the president's age and about the vice president if she were to take over."

Zoom Out: Biden is old as f*ck and is aging like summer milk.
