Jill and Joe Biden officially open their campaign HQ amid concerns about Biden's re-election chances

 February 4, 2024

First Lady Jill Biden and President Joe Biden officially opened their 2024 campaign headquarters over the weekend. 

The Daily Mail also reports that the Bidens made a stop at Beau Biden's grave.  Beau was the eldest son of Joe Biden and his first wife, Neilia Hunter Biden, and he died in 2015, at the age of 46, as the result of brain cancer.

The opening of the campaign headquarters comes amid growing concerns about Biden's re-election chances. There has even been concern from the likes of former President Barrack Obama.

Biden, though, remains optimistic.

It's official

The Daily Mail reports that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris were in Wilmington, Delaware, on Saturday, to mark the official opening of their reelection campaign.

"The entire Democratic ticket was in Wilmington to mark the official opening of their 2024 campaign headquarters. Vice President Kamala Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff flew up from Washington D.C. to join the Bidens in speaking to staff," the outlet reports.

While there, Biden made some remarks in which he attempted to allay concerns about his reelection chances.

"Look, I'm feeling good about where we are. I really am. You know, folks are starting to focus," the Daily Mail reports Biden as saying.

The president continued, "Every time I leave, not a joke, whether it's G20, G7, wherever they are, they'll pull me aside, one at a time, and say, you've got to win, you've got to win. So there's a lot the stake, folks, we have an enormous obligation, but you know, I think it's time to finish the job here."

Why the concern?

A large part of the concern comes from polling. The polling shows that, while Biden is likely to easily win his party's presidential nomination, he could seriously struggle in the general election.

Just as Biden is dominating the Democratic primary field, former President Donald Trump is dominating the Republican primary field. Accordingly, there is every reason to believe that the 2024 general election will be a rematch between Trump and Biden.

The problem for Biden, however, is that Trump appears to be more popular than ever. Trump, in fact, is currently beating Biden in most hypothetical general election polls, including, most importantly, hypothetical general election swing state polls. But, this is only part of Biden's problem.

There are signs that Biden could be losing the support of key Democratic voting blocks, including the Black American voting block. For this reason, Biden made a trip to Los Angeles, California, on Sunday, to meet with Black voters.

On top of all of this, there is the fact that Biden is struggling to gain support for his handling of most key issues. With all of this in mind, it is hard to understand why Biden is so optimistic about his re-election chances.
