The DNC's plan to help Biden isn't working: Report

The Democratic National Committee's (DNC) attempt to help President Joe Biden in the 2024 presidential election is simply not working, according to the Washington Examiner.

What the Examiner is referring to is the way that Biden and the DNC, earlier this year, made changes to the Democrats' primary schedule. Biden, for example, swapped the position of Iowa and South Carolina, putting South Carolina ahead of Iowa.

The point of the changes is to put the primaries in an order that would be more favorable to Biden.

But, according to the Examiner's report, things are not going according to plan for Biden and the DNC.

Biden's problem

The problem, according to the Examiner, is that many of the states are simply not cooperating with Biden's attempt to switch up the order of the Democratic primaries.

The Examiner reports:

[S]everal states are openly rebelling against the switch up, with state officials refusing to comply with the changes that DNC committee members voted on in February.

Among those states that are not complying with Biden's plan is New Hampshire, which, under the plan, would be placed after South Carolina, thereby losing its first-in-the-nation presidential primary status.

The Examiner reports:

New Hampshire has refused to comply with the DNC, missing multiple deadlines and deadline extensions, with the third one issued Thursday, set by the national Democrats to file a plan that follows the 2024 presidential primary schedule.

Iowa and Georgia are also not cooperating with Biden and the DNC, according to the Examiner. 

Going forward

It is not immediately clear how this is all going to play out. Several of the states that are mentioned above are adamant about setting their own primary date, independent of what the DNC and Biden would like.

Accordingly, it does not appear as though the DNC and Biden are going to get their way. But, time will tell.

If the polls are to be believed, then Biden should not have any worry about the upcoming presidential primaries. Real Clear Politics currently has Biden leading the 2024 Democratic primary field, on average, by 54.8 percentage points.

Biden does, though, have several problems with regard to the general election. For one, several recent polls have shown that a clear majority of Americans believe that Biden is too old to seek another term. Additionally, the polls show that Biden's overall approval rating is at or near an all-time low and that Biden's approval rating on key issues - such as the U.S. economy - is also underwater.

So, while Biden is expected to win the Democratic Party's 2024 presidential nomination, the general election would appear to be a different story altogether.
