As President Joe Biden faces criticism and declining poll numbers, some within the Democratic Party, like Rep. Dean Phillips, openly express doubts about his ability to defeat Donald Trump. The concerns extend to Biden’s diminishing support among key demographics, such as young voters, and his handling of international conflicts, notably the Israeli-Hamas conflict, which has contributed to a notable drop in approval among Democrats. The political landscape appears challenging for Biden as he grapples with internal skepticism and external polling trends that favor his predecessor.
As a member of House Democratic Leadership, I supported and promoted the Biden agenda.
I campaigned for him, voted for him, and respect him.
But how can anyone read this and conclude he’s positioned to defeat Donald Trump?
