(Patriot.Buzz) – In a frantic move attempting to revitalize his ailing campaign in the run-up to the 2024 presidential election, Joe Biden has enlisted the support of Hillary Clinton, a highly polarizing figure in the Democratic Party.
This collaboration comes when Biden grapples with meager approval ratings. Clinton’s role in the campaign is poised to intensify as the election approaches, marking her as a pivotal figure in rallying Democratic voters and emphasizing Biden’s rising challenges in the upcoming election.
Clinton, a former Secretary of State and a twice-unsuccessful presidential candidate, has been controversial due to her history of denying election outcomes. Her record includes questioning the legitimacy of the 2000 Bush v. Gore decision and the 2016 presidential election results. She also voiced support for Stacey Abrams, claiming Abrams would have won Georgia’s gubernatorial race if it had been conducted fairly.
Despite these contentious assertions, Clinton’s influence remains significant within the Democratic base, particularly among women voters. Her recent fundraiser for Biden in Georgetown showcased her fundraising abilities, having raised close to $1 million. This demonstrates her potential to mobilize crucial segments of the Democratic electorate and provide substantial financial support for Biden’s campaign.
However, Clinton’s involvement is not without risks. Her complex history with Biden and their past rivalry might pose challenges, and her presence could evoke mixed reactions among voters.
Fox News’ Charlie Hurt expressed skepticism about Clinton’s ability to sway women voters in Biden’s favor, especially against Donald Trump. “If you need help among women voters, and you’re a Democrat, and you’re running against Donald Trump, you should just quit because it’s over,” Hurt commented.
The decision to incorporate Clinton into the campaign strategy reflects a broader concern within the Democratic Party about Biden’s current standing with voters. A Wall Street Journal poll indicated Biden trailing Trump in a head-to-head matchup, with economic concerns and voter enthusiasm cited as significant issues.
Democratic pollster Michael Bocian, who co-conducted the survey, noted the economic stress and challenge felt by voters, which could impact voter turnout compared to previous elections.
