Mercedes Schlapp: Swing Voters Are Not Comfortable with the Leadership Coming out of the Biden Admin.
SCHLAPP: "Well, you know, obviously I think, Stuart, Biden’s unpopularity, his poll numbers, you just mentioned this poll number about the country going in the wrong direction. That’s significant. That’s showing that the independent voter, that swing voter, they’re not feeling comfortable with the Democrat Party, they’re not feeling comfortable with the leadership coming out of the Biden Administration. And so for these candidates, they’re taking that calculated strategy to basically say, 'Let’s not campaign with Biden. Not only that, they’re not even campaigning with Kamala Harris or pretty much any of their cabinet members. So it really is their way of distancing themselves and saying, 'We’re going to go on our own,' because they think it’s the only way to win."
