Biden poll a BIG ‘wake-up call’ in latest jab from CNN

As if President Joe Biden’s reelection woes aren’t bad enough, his support seems to be slipping with his loyal cheerleaders at the self-proclaimed “most trusted name in news.”

On Monday’s edition of “CNN News Central” former Obama official Van “whitelash” Jones was the last to pile on the embattled incumbent as the discussion turned to the deeply unpopular octogenarian’s dismal polling with younger voters, specifically a new poll from another Biden-friendly media outlet.

According to The New York Times/Sienna College survey, the 81-year-old Democrat is now in a dead heat with presumptive GOP nominee Donald J. Trump, a major problem for Team Biden which has pandered to America’s gullible youth on multiple fronts but is losing them based on economic concern according to Jones.

“It should be a wake-up call,” Jones said. “Young people are upset, and it’s not just the situation in Gaza. The economic prospects for young people are miserable, and that’s been building under Obama, it’s been building under Trump, it’s building under Biden.”

“We just do not have a pathway for young people to be able to pay off their student debt, get a house. People are looking at this AI wave and are worried about what job, what career path — and so that pain has to be spoken to directly and specifically. And I think that we’re not yet hearing a full-throated approach to the young people.m: ge told anchor John Berman. “There’s a symbolic piece about the student loans, that’s not gonna be enough for Joe Biden.”

According to the New York Times, “Mr. Trump and Mr. Biden are essentially tied among 18-to-29-year-olds and Hispanic voters, even though each group gave Mr. Biden more than 60 percent of their vote in 2020. Mr. Trump also wins more than 20 percent of black voters — a tally that would be the highest level of black support for any Republican presidential candidate since the enactment of the Civil Rights Act of 1964,” catastrophic numbers for Biden and they’re probably only going to keep going downhill.

Asked for his imput by Berman on what Biden needs to do to address the group, Jones predictably made it about race, as he almost always does.

“Detroit’s gonna matter a lot in Michigan,” Jones said, hoping that urban blacks can offset angry Muslims in Dearborn. Pennsylvania’s gonna matter a lot and… Milwaukee’s gonna matter a lot. In other words, those core black cities in those swing states in the Great Lakes area, they’re gonna matter a bunch.”

“You’ve got to get at the grassroots level in those core black cities, and make sure that people are heard from by surrogates, heard from by the campaign and responded to,” he added. “It’s going to be a pitched, on-the-ground battle in those Great Lakes states, in those black cities, and that’s where you’ve got to go.”

Jones’ criticism comes after CNN’s Fareed Zakaria served it up without the usual sugar coating on Sunday, delivering the bad news about the polls and the likelihood that Biden’s going to be clobbered by Trump this November unless something changes dramatically between now and then.

Zakaria’s grim prognosis ruffled the feathers of many on the left, including “The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg who on Monday’s edition of the ABC daytime gabfest criticized the CNN host. “What’s the point of having a conversation, if you’re saying it’s a done deal? You know, you can’t do that,” whined Whoopi.

If Biden’s starting to lose CNN, you know that things are going to hell in a bucket in a big way for the Democrats.
