As the 2020 presidential election draws closer and the polls look increasingly tight, Joe Biden’s campaign is working hard to ease Democratic anxiety over his chances of re-election.
While the pandemic is largely responsible for Biden’s sagging poll numbers, factors such as the lack of enthusiasm from younger voters, Biden’s avoidance of public campaign events, and the president’s reliance on virtual campaigning have left some Democrats feeling less than optimistic.
Biden’s campaign has gone to great lengths to quell these fears, pointing out that the former Vice President still has several key advantages over President Trump, including a larger digital operations team, better ground organization in swing states, and a consistent message.
In addition, the Biden campaign has adjusted its approach to rallies by hosting smaller, outdoor events and relying more heavily on digital outreach. These efforts have been successful in boosting engagement among supporters, with saw huge spikes in volunteer signups in various battleground states.
Further, Biden is trying to tap into the nation’s optimism in hopes of inspiring and motivating Democrats. His campaign has emphasized his role as a “bridge builder” and has made it clear that Biden is unwilling to engage in the divisive rhetoric of President Trump.
Overall, Biden’s campaign is doing everything it can to inject some enthusiasm into the race and ensure that Democratic voters turn out in November. The effectiveness of the campaign’s efforts can’t be fully assessed until election day, but Democrats should rest assured that the Biden team is doing everything it can to bring Joe Biden to the White House.
