Democrats Frown Upon the Term ‘Bidenomics,’ According to Washington Post Reporter

On Sunday, Leigh Ann-Caldwell of The Washington Post noted that within the Democratic Party, “Bidenomics” is now viewed as a term with negative connotations. Kristen Welker, host of NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” inquired about President Biden’s economic approval ratings, with Caldwell suggesting that Democrats feel a need to move away from the messaging associated with “Bidenomics.”

“‘Bidenomics’’ has really become a negative word, especially among Democrats because it’s not working,” she said.

Caldwell said she was texting with some Democratic lawmakers over the weekend and that they said it was “not looking good” for Biden.

“These members said that it is just not looking good for President Biden politically out there, that he would probably lose some swing states if the election were held today. So they have a lot of work to do to once again, like I said, to try to get credit for the successes that he’s had over the past two years, which he keeps on getting blamed for everything bad that’s happened,” she said.

Symone Sanders, an MSNBC host, expressed confidence that the Biden campaign recognized the ineffective nature of the “Bidenomics” message. Recent polls indicate challenging times for the president, with a November Fox News poll revealing a 78% negative rating of the economy among voters.

Additionally, 67% of voters in the same poll see no indications of economic improvement, and Biden holds a 40% approval rating. An August poll by The Associated Press and NORC Center for Public Affairs Research showed only 36% approval of Biden’s economic handling. A Democratic strategist told NBC News that the creator of the “Bidenomics” slogan should be dismissed.

“Whoever came up with the slogan Bidenomics should be fired,” one anonymous Democratic strategist told NBC. “It’s probably the worst messaging you could ever imagine.”
