Biden frustrated by dismal poll numbers ahead of Trump rematch
By Ramon Tomey // Mar 21, 2024

Incumbent President Joe Biden appears frustrated by dismal poll numbers ahead of his November 2024 rematch with former President Donald Trump.

NBC News recounted one instance of this frustration during a January private meeting at the White House. Biden's allies had just told him that his poll numbers in Michigan and Georgia had dropped over his handling of the Israel-Hamas war. Both are battleground states he narrowly won in 2020, and he can't afford any backsliding if he is to defeat Trump again.

Biden seethed at this revelation and began shouting and swearing, a lawmaker familiar with the meeting said. The president told the group that he believed he had been doing what was right despite the political fallout.

The White House downplayed the claim. Andrew Bates, White House deputy press secretary, said of the instance: "President Biden makes national security decisions based on the country's national security needs alone – no other factor."

"Biden has, on occasion, directed his ire at his tight-knit senior staff," NBC News continued, citing sources who spoke on condition of anonymity. "[The president] was irritated that his message wasn't sinking in with the broader electorate."

"For months, Democrats have watched the 2024 campaign unfold with rising alarm as the sitting president struggles to gain ground against his defeated predecessor. Frustrations rippling through the party have reached the top, with Biden at times second-guessing travel decisions and communications strategies that have left much of the electorate clueless about his record."

There are also signs that some Democrats are also losing patience with him, Rep. Adam Smith (D-WA) among them.

"Biden stood up in front of the whole world and said 'I'm ready. I'm the guy who can take down Trump.' So he goddamn well better do it," Smith said. "We don't have time for him to be worried about whether or not people are saying things right or the poll numbers are where they should be. I want focused energy and not defensive anger."

Biden campaign deluding itself that Trump is beatable

Biden secured the Democratic National Committee's presidential nomination, kicking off the campaign for the November 2024 general election. Despite this, he is still searching for ways to impress upon voters that he deserves a second term.

Public opinion isn't exactly on his side, given his 38 percent approval rating. This is lower than the last three presidents who lost a reelection bid based on Gallup poll data – Trump (48 percent), former President George H.W. Bush (38 percent) and the late former President Jimmy Carter (43 percent). "History suggests it will be tough for him to recover," NBC News remarked about Biden's poll numbers.

Despite this, Biden's campaign team "remains confident about his chances" eight months before Americans head to polling places to cast their votes. Since the March 7 State of the Union address, the president has traveled to Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania. His next stops are Nevada and Arizona, according to NBC News.

"The president and his advisers have all been eager for him to be out there more and planned for that to take place at the start of the election year, as has been the norm for past incumbents seeking reelection," said a person familiar with the Biden campaign's inner workings.

In contrast, Biden aides see Trump as an eminently beatable and deeply flawed opponent. Biden campaign chairwoman Jen O'Malley Dillon said in a recent campaign call with reporters that the former president appears to have little interest in attracting voters beyond his most faithful base.

"We know that he lost in 2020," she said. "In order to win, he's got to expand his base of voters to find new people to be with him. And that is not something he's shown that he’s really focused on."

In reality, however, Biden's faulty policies are attracting people to vote for Trump. Even the four indictments against Trump by Democratic prosecutors have failed to make a dent. In fact, the indictments only galvanized Americans' support for him based on his consistently high poll numbers.
