In recent weeks, Democrats have expressed more and more doubt about Joe Biden’s viability in the next election. Recent polls have shown Trump winning in major swing states.
Biden’s sinking approval could tank his 2024 aspirations. Some have floated alternative candidates, though that might be a long shot.
Now, a familiar name is cropping up. Hillary Clinton, two-time presidential loser, is being recruited by Democrats. And this is the 2024 role she is playing.
From Fox News:
Democrats are reportedly bringing in Hillary Clinton as a reinforcement to help President Biden with his 2024 re-election campaign.
NBC News reported the former secretary of state held a fundraiser for Biden last month at her Georgetown home that raised close to $1 million. Her popularity with women and key parts of the Democratic base are considered assets for Biden as he attempts to expand his outreach to voters.
Democrats are resorting to the help of Hillary Clinton, as Biden faces strong headwinds in his 2024 re-election efforts. According to one report, Clinton held a fundraiser for Biden last month that brought in close to $1 million.
It appears that Democrats are banking on Clinton’s popularity with women voters and other long-standing liberal voters. And reports suggest Clinton’s role in helping Biden win a second term will only grow in the coming months.
Relying on Clinton might sound like a no-brainer to dyed-in-the-wool Democrats. But the party seems to be forgetting that Clinton is largely unliked among most voters. Clinton failed to win the Democratic primaries in 2008.
She lost to Donald Trump, a political newcomer, in 2016. Since then, she has stayed relatively quiet. It is unknown just how much influence she has left with the general public.
It is likely Democrats will use her to rally the party’s base. She could be helpful in bringing in campaign dollars from deep-pocketed donors. But it is unclear if she will host rallies or give speeches to support the incumbent.
One pundit said Biden must be in “deep, deep trouble” to seek Clinton’s help. For a Democrat to be having a hard time bringing in women voters, he said Biden should “just quit because it’s over.”
- Democrats are relying on Hillary Clinton to help Biden’s struggling campaign.
- The former secretary of state recently held a fundraiser for the president.
- This comes as polls indicate Biden will lose to Donald Trump next year.
