President Biden faces a tough re-election battle in 2024, particularly in Georgia, a historically Republican state.
Recent polls show Trump with an early advantage, partly due to Biden’s waning support among Black voters and concerns among Democrat activists.
While some argue that Georgia remains competitive for Democrats, others believe Biden’s presence on the 2024 ticket may drive sentiment towards Republicans. (Trending: Joe Biden Emailed Hunter’s Business Associates 54 Times)
“A poll released in early November by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution showed Biden narrowly trailing Trump 44%-45%, with just 78% of Black voters expressing support for the president. That surprising number was down from the 88% support from Black voters Biden garnered in 2020,” the report noted.
Factors such as economic conditions, infrastructure investments, and Republican hesitancy towards Trump could influence the state’s outcome.
“Georgia is a highly competitive state, and I think that really speaks to just how much progress Democrats have made there over the period of a few cycles,” a Democratic strategist said.
“You’d be hard-pressed, I think, to find someone on any side of the political aisle at this point who disagrees with that.”
“I think that says a lot about the ability of Georgia Democrats and the president’s campaign to get out and win this thing.”
“The fact that you now have two Democratic senators in the state, one of whom was just reelected in the last cycle, says a lot about how there is a strong path to victory,” they added.
“We’re talking about the kind of swing voters that make up a lot of the suburban areas.”
“Trying to convince them to return to Donald Trump, particularly in a situation in which the state’s sitting governor has already expressed his own reservations about the president, is going to be a challenge for them.”
“And this kind of anti-democratic, anti-choice agenda that Republicans really haven’t leaned away from in any way, I think just complements the president’s strengths. They’re not necessarily ready to take this kind of new radical agenda you see a lot of the 2024 Republican candidates pushing,” they added.
Additionally, a non-profit founded by former Republican Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler aims to engage conservative voters and turn out the vote, pointing to a growing advantage for Republicans in the state.
“Georgians want an end to the non-stop crises coming out of Washington, from high prices, reckless spending and harebrained climate activism, to a partisan justice system, indoctrination in the classroom, and a declining commitment to our military,” Loeffler said.
“With America’s strength being dramatically diminished in the last three years, and the majority of Georgians saying our country is on the wrong track, Georgians know they are not better off than they were four years ago,” she added.
“Whether paying higher bills with stagnant wages, rising credit card balances, and mortgage rates at 8%, the weight of the Biden Administration’s out-of-control spending and regulatory regime is weighing on hardworking Georgians from all walks of life.”
