Democrats are worried that Biden’s embrace of the term ‘Bidenomics’ may have been a mistake.
The problem is that no matter how many times Biden or his surrogates claim that the economy is doing great, the American people just aren’t feeling it in their own lives.
If the economy is seen as a negative, Democrats are concerned that it will be directly associated with Biden, which of course it will.
Some Democrats fear Bidenomics branding is backfiring
The Biden re-election campaign’s decision to brand the economy under the president’s name (Bidenomics) is looking like an early blunder that misread the public’s deep pessimism about how things are going on that front.
Why it matters: Despite some encouraging economic trends — unemployment is low, inflation seems to be tamed — polling shows that Americans’ overall perception of the economy is sour.
Driving the news: Some prominent Democrats are now openly criticizing the Biden campaign’s strategy, arguing that it appears to be in denial of Americans’ economic reality.
– “We have to do a better job framing this not so much for one person — for the office of the presidency — but for the people,” Rep. Steven Horsford (D-Nev.) told Politico.
– “I’ve never understood why you would brand an economy in your name when the economy hasn’t fully recovered yet,” Michael LaRosa, a former spokesman for Jill Biden, told the publication.

Democrats are right to be worried about this. You can’t lie to people about how much money they have.
