Obama’s campaign is in full swing as Biden drops out days before election: ‘They don’t want him’

Republican strategists say Democrats “want” President Biden staying home and off the campaign trail as key midterm elections are just over a week away.

With the midterm elections on November 8, Biden is spending the weekend at home Delaware home and early voting in Wilmington on Saturday.

While Biden is in Delaware, First Lady Jill Biden, former President Barack Obama, Vice President Kamala Harris and other administration officials are attending Democratic campaigns across the country.

“I think he’s right where the Democrats want him to be,” Matt Gorman, vice president of Targeted Victory, told Fox News Digital about Biden’s weekend trip to Delaware. “They don’t want him within 100 miles of any competitive race.”

As a Republican, Gorman said Biden “absolutely should” campaign for Democrats across the country, but if he were a Democrat, Gorman said he wouldn’t want to see Biden at campaign events.

When asked about the by-elections afterwards casting his premature voteBiden said he “feels good.”

“I feel good. I mean, I’ve been in, I guess, 36 constituencies now. Either I’m campaigning for a particular candidate or I’m going with a candidate that’s doing something like the bridge in Pittsburgh,” Biden said.

Biden said he would be “engaged” in the midterm campaign by the end of the week, visiting Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Mexico and California.

“I’m going to be all over the country,” Biden said.

“I think he’s right where the Democrats want him to be.”

Kellyanne Conway, a former adviser to President Trump, told Fox News Digital that Biden’s trip to his home in Delaware was “appropriate.”

“Biden is back in the basement in Delaware as his Democratic Party struggles to retain control of the House and Senate,” Conway said. “This is fitting, given that Biden’s disastrous policies and habit of ignoring the will of the people as expressed in the polls have contributed to his own disapproval rating and existential threat to the Democratic majority.”

Conway added that “this is not ‘Biden Hidden’ – this is Biden being unpopular and unwanted on the campaign trail.”

Harris attended a Democratic campaign event in Baltimore, Maryland, on Saturday. Obama campaigned for Democratic Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer in Detroit, as well as Democratic Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers and Democratic Senate candidate Mandela Barnes.

Jill Biden campaigned for Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H., in New Hampshire on Saturday.

Conway said that even with Obama’s performance on the campaign trail, it may not help as much as Democrats hope.

“Former President Obama is popular, especially within his own party, but his record of electoral victories for candidates other than himself is lacking: During his eight years as president, Democrats lost a net of 12 governors, nine U.S. senators, dozens of House seats and 950 congressmen in state legislatures,” Conway said.

Biden visited Syracuse, New York on Friday and Philadelphia, Pennsylvaniawith a message to voters: Republicans will make inflation “much worse” than it already is.

“Under the Republican plan, many of the largest corporations will return to zero payments, as they did in 2015 — I think in 2020. Fifty-five major Fortune 500 companies made $40 billion in 2020 and paid zero — not one cent — in federal taxes.” Biden said in Philadelphia. “That’s their plan, among other things. It’s reckless. That is irresponsible. It will make inflation much worse and hurt working and middle-class Americans badly.”

When Biden took office in January 2021, the consumer price index, which measures the prices of everyday items such as gas, groceries and rent, rose 1.4% annually.

In September, prices rose by 8.2% on an annual basis.

Matt Wolking, Vice President of Communications at Axiom Strategies, a Republican political firmtold Fox News Digital that the national environment for Democrats will not change, whether or not Biden is on the campaign trail.

“Joe Biden is a millstone around most Democrats’ necks — whether he spends the final days of the election napping on the beach or talking to TikTok trans activists isn’t going to move things either way,” Wolking said.
