On Monday, Jonathan Martin, a columnist for Politico, criticized the re-election strategy of Vice President Biden and argued that his rumored private slurs against former Obama adviser David Axelrod would not help him win ballots in the upcoming 2024 election.
Martin further expressed disapproval of Biden’s choice to discuss poll results alongside the White House press corps, asserting that it would not increase the likelihood of his triumph in 2024.
“Calling David Axelrod ‘a p—-,’ as a person who has heard Biden use the word says he does in private, is not a strategy to win 270 electoral votes. And repeating a PG version of the same animus in public while litigating polling with the White House press corps also won’t make Biden’s re-election any likelier,” Martin wrote in his recent Politico piece.
Axelrod has expressed concern audibly regarding whether it is “wise” for Biden to seek re-election in light of bleak swing-state polls and Democratic concerns regarding his age and ability to defeat former President Trump once more.
Martin stated that Republicans and “Democratic elites” were most concerned about Biden’s age and the cost of living.
He predicted that the election of 2024 would be “extraordinary.”
Martin further proposed that the president designate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton to assist in the facilitation of a peace process in the Middle East.
