Biden Campaign Prepping 'Aggressive' Trump Ambush For April and May

For months now, President Joe Biden has consistently trailed former President Donald Trump in polling as the nation edges closer to the 2024 presidential race.

As of March 27, Biden’s approval rating sits at a dismal 39.6 percent, the lowest of any president in modern history.

Although there has been a slight uptick in his polling numbers within crucial swing states, Biden continues to trail Trump.

But as campaigning heads into the spring, Biden’s team is hoping to turn those numbers around after launching an “ambush” on the Trump campaign, according to sources who spoke with The Daily Beast.

“It’s aggressive,” a Biden re-election campaign source who was granted anonymity told the media company. “There’s a lot of travel, there’s a lot of work. It’s all exciting. We’re heading into this final fundraiser of the month with the former presidents [Obama and Clinton], but it’s aggressive.”

Team Biden is also getting a boost from former President Barack Obama, who is becoming more entrenched in the campaign.

In recent days, Obama spent several hours at the White House consulting with Biden over this year’s election, which he says marks an “all-hands-on-deck” moment, according to unnamed officials who spoke with CNN.

Biden, Obama and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi participated in an organizing call on the anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, CNN reported.

“We have the chance to do even more, but that only happens if we send Joe and Kamala back to the White House in November,” Obama said during the video. “So, we’ve got to keep working.”

A senior aide told the Beast that the Biden campaign, in late spring and early summer, will start targeting undecided voters with messaging and building outdoor knocking infrastructure to drive turnout.

“That’s what matters at this point in the cycle,” Kevin Munoz, Biden’s national campaign spokesperson, told the Beast in an interview. “And I think we have a very good story to tell, not only on the operation we’re building, but also on the issues that we’re fighting for. These are the issues that when Americans go to the ballot box, they care most about, and Donald Trump is running on an agenda that people actively root against when they go to the ballot box.”
