Pollster Predicts Biden’s Divisive Rhetoric Could ‘Cost Him Votes In 2024’

The Biden administration has clearly seized upon a midterm strategy to rally liberal voters through a relentless vilification of former President Donald Trump and his millions of supporters. In doing so, however, the White House has seemingly ignored moderate voters with just two months until Election Day.

Given President Joe Biden’s persistently low approval rating, it might make sense that he cannot use his own record as a motivating factor for people to vote for the Democratic Party in November. Nevertheless, one political analyst noted that the current plan of feeding red meat to the nation’s far-left voters is not likely to pay off.

As pollster John Couvillon explained, Biden’s “win-at-all-cost approach” appears singularly focused on doing “everything you can to make your base happy.”

While it is possible that such a strategy could stoke enough enthusiasm to stave off a GOP blowout in the upcoming midterms, he noted that the longer-term impact could be devastating for the president and his party.

“He may think he is getting short-term victories now, but he still has two years to govern,” Couvillon said. “And if voters think that all you’re doing is just constantly banging up against the opposition, I think that’s going to cost him votes in 2024.”

A common theme among all of Biden’s recent speeches is a demonization of so-called “MAGA Republicans,” whom he has described as a threat to the nation’s democracy.

During last week’s national address in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the president declared: “Too much of what is happening in our country today is not normal. Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundation of our republic.”

While such incendiary rhetoric resonated with his party’s progressive base, countless critics have denounced the divisiveness of a president who campaigned as a unifier.

U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) said that he heard from a number of fellow Texans who were “very offended” by the president’s words.

“I think that if this was a speech to unify the American people, it had just the opposite effect,” he added. “It basically condemned all Republicans who supported Donald Trump in the last election.”

Biden attempted to walk back the extent of his criticism after encountering widespread backlash, later claiming that he had not attempted tdemean all Trump supporters.

A recent Trafalgar Group poll found that nearly 57% of respondents agreed that his speech constituted a “dangerous escalation in rhetoric designed to incite conflict among Americans.”

“People voted for Donald Trump, support him now,” the president said. “They weren’t voting for attacking the Capitol. They weren’t voting for overruling an election. They were voting for a philosophy he put forward.”
