Democrats in battleground states are concerned about President Joe Biden’s low approval ratings, fearing that it could impact the party’s chances in the next presidential election and affect down-ballot candidates.

They worry about Biden’s organization in key states, his lagging polling numbers compared to Democratic congressional candidates, and his struggle to appeal to certain voter groups.

Despite optimism from Biden’s team about a shift in the race once Trump becomes the presumptive Republican nominee, some Democrats remain skeptical. (Trending: Trump Releases Must-See TV Ad Ahead of 2024)

They also note that Biden’s low standing could affect their own races.

Despite recent staff hires and a more assertive messaging strategy, Democratic officials and strategists acknowledge the challenges of outrunning Biden in 2024.

Some candidates are focusing on local issues and distancing themselves from the presidential campaign.

Savannah’s Mayor Van Johnson said, “I’m extremely concerned.”

“President Biden is a man of great character. Certainly, he’s a president of great accomplishments. But that is not translating to southeast Georgia,” he continued.

“I don’t see any passion, any excitement, nothing,” added the mayor.

“It might be a situation of too little, too late,” said Johnson.

Julie Chávez Rodríguez, Biden’s campaign manager wrote, “There’s been no lack of coverage on polls about Joe Biden.”

“But it’s important to remember Donald Trump, extreme MAGA Republicans and their dangerous ideas are extremely unpopular,” she continued.

There’s also concern about independent candidates affecting the dynamics of the 2024 election.

Despite the Biden campaign’s belief that voters haven’t fully engaged in the 2024 race, some Democratic consultants and strategists remain cautious.

Rep. Debbie Dingell said, “In 2015 and 2016, I warned people, and nobody believed me.”

“He’s got to do more than just draw the contrast,” added the Michigan lawmaker.

Dan Sena, a former executive director of the House Democrats’ campaign division, said, “The presidential race speaks in such broad terms.”

“That it really affords Senate and congressional candidates the opportunity to localize their races, which creates a natural space between them and the president,” he continued.

Rep. Colin Allred said, “I really believe that we can’t afford six more years of Ted Cruz. It’s an election that’s going to outlast the next presidential year.”

“I’ll let the president run his campaign,” added the Texas lawmaker.

Morgan Jackson, a Democratic consultant said, “What you’re seeing from voters is, they are not that engaged, they don’t really like their options, and they don’t know what they’re going to do.”
