WASHINGTON, DC: Several prominent Democrats are urging President Joe Biden to change his approach in the run-up to the 2024 election and focus more on criticizing his rival Donald Trump rather than highlighting his own legislative accomplishments.

According to them, touting Biden’s policy successes has failed to resonate with voters.

"He wants the credit, but it’s not working. He needs to stop," told a top Democrat Party member to CNN

Democrat Party members want President Joe Biden to challenge Donald Trump on economy 

Four individuals with close ties to the White House noted that they have requested the Biden campaign concentrate on the economy during the CNN presidential debate on Thursday, June 27. Additionally, they recommended setting aside time to question Trump's ties to corporate America and how his proposed policies might make inflation even worse.

"Imagine spending 50 years of your life in politics, and now becoming the guy. You want people to know you’re doing a really good job," told a major donor to CNN, adding, "I think Biden can’t help but talk about what a good job he’s done."

Biden's campaign might have paid attention to the advice as in a new advertisement they attacked Trump saying that he won't do much for middle-class families if he is reflected.

"Donald Trump loves to attack Joe Biden because he’s focused on revenge, and he has no plan to help the middle class," says a narrator in the advertisement that is part of a $50 million paid media campaign that will run throughout June, targeting voters in battleground states.


Polls show inflation and economic matters are top priorities for voters

According to a May Ipsos poll, more than 80% of participants think that inflation and the state of the economy will have a significant impact on who they will vote for in November. Regarding these issues, Trump outscored Biden by 14 points.

On the other hand, in a recent Fox News poll, one-third of respondents stated that the economy is doing very well or is in good shape, which is a record high for Biden's administration. The previous high was 30% in May as well as in September 2021.

59% said they are making progress or staying the same financially, up five points since the summer of 2023. 44% percent feel optimistic about the state of the economy, up nine points from the last year.

Internet reacts to top Democrats asking President Joe Biden to focus on Donald Trump

Netizens slammed the Democrats for pushing Biden to focus on attacking Trump rather than his achievements in office in the run-up to the 2024 election.

One wrote, "You mean telling struggling Americans that they are not really struggling and we have the best economy is not working...? I wonder why...." 

Another added, "Typical democrats. Avoid facts and switch to personal attacks," whereas a person said, "Personal attacks — what sort of politics is that ?! Certainly not one that is fit for a civilized country."

"Next article: Biden needs to stop making it about Trump, and say what he's doing. Bookmark this," wrote an individual, mocking the top Democrats. 

"Biden would just read from flashcards again," remarked someone else.  

One more commented, "In other words- avoid talking about your failed policies for the last 4 years. Continue smearing Donald Trump personally, and the swamp will help you with that."
