Top allies of President Joe Biden are reportedly urging him to ditch the “Bidenomics” message as the president’s approval on the economy continues to drag.

The White House has sold its economic agenda to voters as “Bidenomics,” trying to take advantage of a post-pandemic return to normalcy after widespread shutdowns put millions of Americans out of work. The economic recovery has dragged, however, under high inflation and interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve.

Now, top Biden allies are attempting to persuade the White House to ditch the “Bidenomics” tagline as polls show ugly returns for Democrats on economic issues.

“With all due respect to the president, to the White House, this is not so much about them as it is the people who are benefiting by the policies that they came out and demanded,” Rep. Steven Horsford (D-NV), chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, said, according to POLITICO. “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.”

Progressive Policy Institute President Will Marshall said that the Biden administration’s economic message is not selling. The White House needs to change its tack to find a more promising line as Democrats prepare for the 2024 elections.

“At this point, Bidenomics doesn’t really have strong answers to people’s biggest worries,” Marshall said. “There ought to be a lot of thinking in the White House now about changes in the way they present their case for the economic good that this administration has done.”

On Tuesday, a NBC News poll showed Republicans with the largest edge over Democrats on Americans’ perception of economic issues ever in the history of the poll.

The poll, taken from September 15-19, found that 49% of Americans favor Republican economic policy as opposed to 28% who favor Democrat policy. The poll also found Republicans with an advantage in a slate of other top issues.


Republicans lead Democrats beyond the margin of error on the issues of border security (50% for Republicans-20% for Democrats), crime (46%-20%), immigration (45%-27%), and protecting constitutional rights (43%-35%). Democrats held sizable leads on the issues of education (30%-40%), coronavirus (26%-37%), abortion (28%-46%), and healthcare (22%-45%).

“On this survey after 20 or 30 years, Republicans dealing with the economy [versus Democrats], immigration and crime are all at their all-time highs,” Republican pollster Bill McInturff said.

“The other thing that is maybe not expected is these phrases: ‘protecting our constitutional rights’ and ‘protecting democracy.’ These are things where overall the electorate thinks Republicans are more focused and would do a better job than Democrats,” he continued.
