Democrats privately concerned Biden campaign is ‘doomed,’ worry Trump may even win blue states: report

A new report suggests many Democratic strategists expect the party to lose in the fierce election battle against former President Trump.

“I don’t want to be the person who goes out there and says we’re doomed, or the campaign is terrible, or Biden is making mistakes,” said one Democratic activist, speaking on condition of anonymity. He told Politico“Nobody wants to be that guy.”

“This isn’t about, ‘Oh my goodness, Mitt Romney might become president.’ This is about, ‘Oh my goodness, democracy might end,'” they said, adding that Biden’s low approval ratings are creating “panic” among Biden supporters.

A recent Bloomberg News/Morning Consult poll found Trump leading Biden in seven key battleground states — Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — that Biden won in 2020 and were key to his victory in the election.

A Biden adviser told Politico that donors are also concerned about the current president’s anti-Trump crusade.

The adviser said it’s “so much easier to show” donors the Biden campaign’s weaknesses, so “I can pour them a drink while they read it.”

“The list of reasons we can ‘win’ is so short that I don’t even need to keep it on my phone,” the adviser said.

But not all Biden supporters are speaking anonymously about their concerns about the 2024 election. Outspoken strategist James Carville has criticized the party’s messaging and approach in this year’s election.

Another Democratic strategist was blunt about the biggest obstacle the Biden team must overcome to secure victory in November.

“There’s still a path to victory, but right now it doesn’t look like the campaign is even starting to walk that path,” said political strategist Pete Giangreco. “If the framework for this campaign is, ‘Would you rather have three and a half years of Biden or four years of Trump?’ We’re going to lose every day, and we’re going to lose twice on Sunday.”

Even in New York City, a Democratic stronghold, Trump’s aggressive campaigning in the South Bronx has Democrats worried.

“New York Democrats need to wake up,” Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine told the outlet. “The New York I know is an astonishing number of people, including people of color, who have positive things to say about Trump.”
