Axelrod continues criticisms of Joe Biden after name calling

Former Obama adviser David Axelrod continued to criticize President Joe Biden's chances at reelection after the president blasted him as a "pr**k."

Axelrod shared the details in a New York Times column on Sunday that addressed the aging Democrat's chances in 2024.

The facts

"I don’t care about them thinking I’m a prick — that’s fine," Axelrod told Dowd. "I hope they don’t think the polls are wrong, because they’re not," Axelrod stated.

"I think he has a 50-50 shot here, but no better than that, maybe a little worse," Axelrod said. "He thinks he can cheat nature here and it’s really risky. They’ve got a real problem if they’re counting on Trump to win it for them. I remember Hillary doing that, too," he added.

The background

"During the 2020 presidential election cycle, Axelrod said Biden was 'Mr. Magooing his way' through the Democratic primary. 'You keep worrying he's going to hit a wall,' he added, 'but he's moving forward,'" Newsmax reported.

"Meanwhile, amid sticky inflation and ongoing wars in the Middle East and Europe, according to recent polls, Americans have grown pessimistic about a second Biden term," it added.

Doubling down

“Listen, I understand he was irritated because I raised concerns that many, many Democrats had. And again, you know, my feeling is either get out or get going," Axelrod stated during a CNN interview.

"But the status quo, the way they were approaching the campaign, this sort of ‘What, me, worry?’ attitude about the campaign was not going to get him to where he needs to go,” he said.

Biden, who turned 81 Monday, has continued to be the source of concern among many Democrats who see him as too old to serve another term.

The issue also continues to grow as polls show former President Trump pulling ahead of Biden in many places, including five of six battleground states in a recent poll.

Biden appears determined to run regardless, but Axelrod is not alone in his concerns that the president may not do as well in a second election against Trump.
