Biden campaign turns to Hillary Clinton for help with reelection effort

 December 12, 2023

A new report suggests that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may displace Vice President Kamala Harris as the top woman on President Joe Biden's campaign. 

NBC News revealed this week that Clinton is being brought onboard as a "key player" in the White House's reelection efforts.

Polls show Biden falling behind Trump

The move comes as Biden struggles with abysmal approval ratings along with polls showing that he is lagging behind former President Donald Trump.

One recent example of that came in the form of a Wall Street Journal survey which was carried out between November 29 and December 4.

It put Biden four points below Trump and showed that the former president enjoys more trust with voters when it comes to handling the economy, crime, and addressing the border crisis.

Democratic strategist says the president "needs all the help that he can get"

An unnamed Democratic strategist was quoted as telling NBC News, "At the end of the day, Biden needs all the help that he can get. What he needs is both the spirit and the actual reality of unity."

What's more, NBC News noted that Clinton hosted a fundraiser at her Georgetown home last month which managed to raise $1 million for the president's reelection campaign.

The network claimed that "Clinton is popular with women and key parts of the Democratic base and remains a fundraising draw who can help ensure Biden has the money to get his message out."

However, critics like Fox News personality Charlie Hurt have expressed skepticism over just how effective Clinton's involvement in the campaign will be.

Fox News host: Turning to Clinton is a sign that Biden is in "deep trouble"

"I think Joe Biden's going to need more than a[n] 'I'm with her T-shirt' with all of his political problems," Hurt declared on an episode of "The Big Weekend Show."

"But, you know you are in deep, deep trouble if you are picking up the bat phone and calling Hillary Clinton to come help you out," he continued.

"And I think it was sort of interesting that their thinking is that he needs help among women voters," the television host went on to argue.

"If you need help among women voters, and you're a Democrat, and you're running against Donald Trump, you should just quit because it's over," he added.
