President Biden is planning a March fundraiser in New York with former Presidents Obama and Clinton in an effort to boost his reelection campaign finances.

The trio announced the event on social media. Recent polls paint a dire picture for Biden’s reelection prospects.

Obama said, “Folks – I’ll be in NYC on March 28th to support @JoeBiden. Who’s coming with me? Chip in for your chance to join.”

Clinton commented, “Count me in. Who else is going to be there?”

Biden said, “You guys know you can just call me next time, right?”

A January NBC News poll found Biden’s approval rating at an all-time low of 37% with voters, with 73% saying the country is headed in the wrong direction.

The poll showed Trump leading Biden in a hypothetical 2024 matchup by 5 points nationally.

The AP reported, “Obama, Clinton, and Jimmy Carter are the only living Democratic former presidents, but the 99-year-old Carter is in hospice care at his home in Georgia. Carter’s wife, Rosalynn, died in November and her funeral was one of the rare times Biden, Obama and Clinton have appeared together prior to next month’s fundraiser.”

“Word of the upcoming gathering came a day before Biden headed to New York for three smaller Manhattan fundraisers. The president has intensified fundraising efforts since December. His campaign said Tuesday that January produced its highest monthly donation total since launching in April 2023, breaking monthly records previously set in December and November of last year,” continued the outlet.

Trump had double-digit leads over Biden on issues like the economy, crime, and border security.

Democratic pollster Jeff Horwitt called the results “damning” and said Biden has declined on every measure compared to 2020.

Horwitt said, “What is most concerning is the erosion of Biden’s standing against Trump compared to four years ago.”

He continued, “On every measure compared to 2020, Biden has declined. Most damningly, the belief that Biden is more likely to be up to the job—the chief tenet of the Biden candidacy—has evaporated.”

Republican pollster Bill McInturff of Public Opinion Strategies said, “It is hard to imagine a more difficult set of numbers before a reelection.”

Horwitt said, “Biden can take solace that we are in January and not October 2024.”

He added, “At this stage in prior cycles, attitudes can change.”

While Biden could hope for a Trump indictment or a change in voter attitudes, the pollsters said the current numbers present a difficult landscape for an incumbent president entering the primary season.
