Obama appears to be taking a bigger role in Biden's reelection campaign

 January 6, 2024

President Joe Biden was hit with yet more allegations last month, with Republicans suggesting that he may have broken the law by helping his son dodge a congressional subpoena.

Yet despite being plagued by scandal and sometimes having a sickly appearance, Biden can still count on former President Barack Obama stooping down to prop him up.

Obama helps raise $2.6 million for the president's campaign

An example of that phenomenon came last week, with the Washington Examiner reporting that Obama helped to bring in some $2.6 million on behalf of Biden's campaign.

Those funds were raised via a contest in which donors purchased a chance to meet Obama and his former vice president.

The Examiner noted that this was hardly Obama's only contribution to his successor's campaign, as on Thursday he appeared in a new ad.

"Our democracy depends on you," Obama could be heard saying before Biden chimed in with, "It really does, folks, that's no joke. That's why we need you."

"We need your help to ensure Joe's leadership continues to guide us forward. The other side won't rest. So we can't, either," Obama went on to insist.

The advertisement was put out less than a month after Obama joined Biden for an earlier video which touted the Affordable Care Act.

"Yes, Obamacare, the Affordable Care Act, Bidencare, whatever you call it, yes, it is still a thing," Obama said. He added that Republicans have "been trying to repeal it every year since it's existed."

Report: Hillary Clinton to act as "key player" reelection effort

Obama is not the only major Democratic figure to support Biden's reelection effort, as NBC News reported in December that the campaign is bringing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on board as a "key player."

NBC News noted that Clinton hosted a fundraiser at her Georgetown home which managed to raise $1 million on Biden's behalf.

What's more, an unnamed Democratic strategist told the network, "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."

Meanwhile, a poll carried out last month by Monmouth University found that the president's approval rating had dropped to 34%, the lowest figure seen since he took office.
