Former-Clinton consultant claims Biden ‘doing it all wrong’


(MENAFN) Mark Penn, a former adviser to Bill Clinton, has penned an opinion piece for the New York Times, offering a critical assessment of President Joe Biden's reelection campaign. Penn, who served the Clintons from 1995 to 2008, argues that Biden is risking his chances of winning a potential rematch against Donald Trump by overly focusing on appeasing his left-leaning base while neglecting swing voters.

In his analysis, Penn highlights the importance of swing voters, emphasizing that while they may represent a smaller portion of the electorate, their potential to sway the outcome of an election is significant, particularly in a polarized political climate. He points out that both Biden and Trump currently enjoy solid support from around 40 percent of the population, leaving approximately 20% of voters undecided.

Penn contends that while candidates often prioritize energizing their base to drive voter turnout, Biden's approach may be misguided. He suggests that while the Democratic base may be motivated to oppose Trump, it is crucial not to alienate swing voters who are concerned about key issues such as immigration and inflation. Neglecting these voters, Penn warns, could ultimately lead to a Trump victory in the upcoming election.

By highlighting the potential impact of swing voters in battleground states, Penn underscores the need for Biden to address their concerns and offer solutions that resonate with their priorities. Failure to do so, he cautions, could undermine Biden's reelection prospects and pave the way for another term for Trump.
