Democratic National Committee Chairman Jaime Harrison emphasizes the need to combat disinformation
Democratic National Committee Chairman Jaime Harrison has highlighted the prevalence of disinformation surrounding President Biden’s accomplishments. In an interview with NOTUS, Harrison expressed concern about the efforts of both foreign and domestic actors to misrepresent Biden’s record.
Creating a platform for candidates to discuss their achievements
The Democratic Party chair in South Carolina, Christale Spain, explained that the party launched a historic effort to educate voters and provide a space for candidates to discuss their accomplishments. Spain stressed the importance of filling the information gap, rather than an enthusiasm gap, among voters.
Highlighting Biden’s successes and reaching out to Black voters
Democrats argue that it is crucial to inform Black voters about Biden’s major successes, such as the Inflation Reduction Act and student loan forgiveness. Recent data from Pew Research Center shows a decline in Biden’s support among Black and Hispanic voters since the 2020 presidential election.
Addressing the lack of political knowledge among youth
One student at South Carolina State University admitted to only supporting Biden after learning about his record on appointing Black judges. The student, Zyah Cephus, emphasized the need for youth to be informed about politics, stating that they often focus on entertainment rather than important political developments.
Calls for concern as Biden’s poll numbers remain historically low
Biden’s overall approval ratings have remained low, leading some Democratic commentators to express alarm. David Faris, a writer and political science professor at Roosevelt University, called the current polling environment for an incumbent president the worst since the advent of polling in the 1930s. He emphasized that panic is entirely warranted.
