A new report has highlighted First Lady Jill Biden’s active involvement in her husband’s administration, including her role in the selection of officials and shielding the president from exhausting events.
There are suggestions that she is heavily involved behind the scenes, and her influence has become a point of scrutiny against the President.
“Jill Biden’s reported influence in the White House comes as Joe Biden has been scrutinized for being led off stage by the first lady, and appearing to be physically led away from reporters’ questions,” Insiders wrote. (Trending: Democrat Accused Of Blocking Release of Jeffrey Epstein Flight Logs)
“Jill Biden has been appearing frequently at public events and plans to hit the campaign trail going into the 2024 election.”
She is usually in the room when senior campaign staff is presenting a strategy to her husband. She will ask questions. But she never weighs in on the decision,” a former advisor to the Head of State said.
“The first lady, Jill Biden, encouraged her husband to seek a second term. According to the president’s senior advisers, he will often consider her opinion before making final decisions on official matters. She is also expected to play a large role on the campaign trail as Biden faces backlash from his family. A career educator, she offers a perspective over GOP fights about book bans and other policies in schools and has served as a connection to suburban voters, particularly women,” Insiders added.
Additionally, polls indicate a decline in President Biden’s job approval ratings, with concerns about his performance among independents and younger voters.
Furthermore, recent surveys show Trump leading in key swing states, suggesting a shift in voter preferences.
“The gap is gone. Thirty-six percent positive on both and Biden, one point more negative than Trump. That’s been a significant advantage for Biden. Our poll says that advantage, at least for now, maybe gone,” political correspondent Steve Kornacki noted.
“If you take a look here by party, I think it’s significant for two reasons: one, Independents more than two to one disapprove. You don’t want to be there as an incumbent president.”
“But I think equally significant, no surprise: 7% of Republicans approve of Joe Biden’s job performance, but three times as many Democrats, 21%—that’s more than one in five—say they disapprove.”
“You need much more unified support in your party if you’re going to have a successful reelection campaign,” Kornacki said.
“The youngest voters in the 2020 election were Biden +28,” Kornacki said. “This could be a massive sea change.”
