“It’s Super Scary”: Former Obama Comms Director Addresses Biden’s 2024 Prospects

Jennifer Palmieri, a former White House communications director under the Obama administration, recently spoke about Joe Biden’s outlook for the 2024 presidential election.  According to Palmieri, things look “super scary” for the Biden administration as some polls favor former President Donald Trump.

Appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Palmieri discussed the current state of Biden’s campaign, addressing some of the top-of-house concerns.  The former communications director particularly highlighted the impact of the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy and the economic implications of voter sentiment.

“Look, it’s super scary. The fate of the Republic is hanging in the balance, and there are polls that have Donald Trump leading right now,” she stated. “To [MSNBC political analyst Eugene Daniels’] point on the economy, we know that the Federal Reserve is planning on lowering rates. We know that is something that can, that is something that signals to actual consumers, real voters, things are different and things are improving,” Palmieri added.

Palmieri also expressed concern about the general political polarization in America, insinuating that the country may be too divided to reach enough voters effectively.  “There is this scary thing that overhangs everything about whether, you know, we’re just too divided. It’s just too late. There’s too many silos. How am I going to reach all the voters I need to reach given all the media silos that there are? I mean, that is what I would be turning on every day is just sort of the mechanics of getting that message out,” she continued.

MSNBC host Jonathan Lemire discussed a widespread sentiment where people believe their incumbent leaders are performing below expectations.   According to a recent poll from Monmouth University, only 34% of Americans approve of Joe Biden’s job as president.

“Prices are too high, people all over the world are just sort of unhappy with what they have. And I think that is a real fear among some in the Biden camp. Even though the metrics are good, to Jen’s point, they should get better. People say they like things about it, but there’s a sense that just, they’ve written off the Biden economy, that they won’t give him credit for it and that’s something they’re worried about,” he said.

Lemire asserted that the Biden campaign will benefit when American voters shift their focus away from the Republican primary race.  The host illustrated a scenario where Americans would turn away from Trump when presented with a choice between him and Biden.  However, he noted that voters may only select Biden as a lesser of two evils, given his lack of approval.

“When they start paying attention again, and they see what Trump is saying, they hear what he’s threatening to do, and they’re reminded of the chaos of what his time in office was like, but they simply won’t want to make the choice to go through that all again. It may not be an enthusiastic vote for President Biden, but it’ll be a vote for President Biden, and they feel like that will be enough to win,” Lemire ADDED.
