As former President Donald Trump faces arraignment in a Manhattan court, President Biden’s advisers appear to be cheering him on in the Republican presidential primary.
According to Politico, Biden’s advisers view Trump as the most beatable GOP nominee and are increasingly confident that he will win the 2024 Republican nomination. Four anonymous Biden aides pointed to Trump’s surge in the polls following his indictment by a grand jury, claiming that he has used the indictment to galvanize his base.
Trump’s surge in the polls has worried some Democrats, but those close to Biden are confident that the president will face Trump again in a rematch, should he follow through with plans to run for reelection.
Biden’s advisers think that the swing voters Trump lost because of his erratic behavior and handling of the COVID-19 pandemic are not coming back.
While some Democrats are concerned about Trump’s ability to win the 2024 election, Biden’s advisers remain confident that the president’s record on job growth, the pandemic, and his support for Ukraine against Russia’s invasion will resonate better with voters than Trump’s false claims of a stolen 2020 election and his complaints about his various legal woes.
