An official for Joe Biden's 2024 presidential campaign noted that the president's approval ratings would improve as the election nears. However, this comes amid concerns about how voters would perceive Biden's age and the economy. According to a recent poll, only 37% of Americans approve of how the president is handling the situation.
According to Richmond, the people are not happy with the current economic situation. He was asked what the Biden administration would do about it.
When asked about the economy, Richmond noted that people are still concerned about what's happening in the country, and they need to be informed about what's happening. He also said that the government should keep emphasizing the positive aspects of its policies.

Besides the economy, other issues have also been brought up about Biden's age. By the time Biden, who is 81 years old, is running for president in 2024, he might not be able to handle the position. Despite these concerns, Richmond noted that the Democratic Party will focus on issues that affect Americans. For instance, he mentioned the need to reduce the cost of insulin and the need for school gun control.
As Biden pushes his "Bidenomics" economic agenda, the concerns about the country's economy are growing. According to recent polls, the phrase has not caught on with voters, with only around 34% of adults stating that the economy is either good or excellent.
A survey conducted by a prominent political consultancy firm revealed that 48% of likely voters in the US think that Biden would be a better president than Donald Trump if he loses the election in 2024. These results should not be taken lightly, as Trump is still considered a strong candidate in the Republican primary race. He has vowed to create a better and bigger economy.
The Biden administration is currently facing low ratings for the president's handling of the economy, as well as his perceived lack of maturity. Cedric Richmond's response suggests that the administration will focus on the positive aspects of its economic policies, while also taking a break from focusing on other important issues.
Despite Biden's "Bidenomics" economic agenda, many voters see his loss as a boost to the country's economy. This suggests that the administration needs to regain their confidence.
