Biden Fine-tunes His Appeal to Black Voters in Atlanta

8

TL/DR –

President Biden has called former President Donald Trump an “unhinged” threat to democracy and asked Black voters in Atlanta to consider the consequences of a Trump victory. Despite Biden’s attempts to present himself as a protector of international order and traditional politics, he has low approval ratings and is behind Trump in several key states. Over the weekend in Georgia, Biden encouraged voters to focus not on his personal political brand, but on the potential impacts of another Trump presidency.


Biden Highlights ‘Unhinged’ Threat of Trump Ahead of Georgia Campaign Events

President Biden emphasized on Saturday the threat he believes former President Donald J. Trump poses to the nation’s future. In his appeal to Black voters at Atlanta campaign events, he portrayed the election as a critical decision between upholding democracy or risking its decline.

He previewed this message ahead of a scheduled speech on Sunday at Morehouse College, a historically Black male institution. The college community has shown mixed reactions to his invitation amidst the ongoing conflict in Gaza.

At a Saturday campaign reception, Biden addressed a significant segment of the electorate that has been gradually distancing from him, stating: “We cannot let this man become president. We have to win this race, not for me but for America.”

Despite his efforts to present himself as a guardian of international order and normal politics, Biden struggles with low approval ratings and lags behind Trump in several battleground states like Georgia, as per recent polls.

Biden’s Strategy in Georgia: ‘It’s Not About Me’

Over the weekend in Georgia, Biden seemed to remove his own political brand from consideration, instead urging key voters to think about the potential repercussions of a Trump victory.

Describing Trump as “clearly unhinged,” Biden referenced a recent interview from the former president. “Buy Time magazine this week. Take a look at what he has said. He said, ‘A lot of people liked it when I said I would be a dictator on Day 1.’”

Earlier in the day, Biden also questioned recent polling data. “So far the polls haven’t been right once. We’re either tied or slightly ahead or slightly behind, but what I look at is actual election results and election results are in the primaries.”

He indicated that Nikki Haley, no longer in the race, had taken votes away from Trump in several primary elections.

Emphasizing the importance of the election outcome, Biden told a group of supporters, including several Morehouse graduates, “It’s not about me. It’s about the alternative as well.”
