In a 24-minute and 6-second video, campaign managers from both major political parties discuss the chances of their presumptive candidates in the 2024 presidential race. Despite their differences, both Joe Biden and Donald Trump claim to be fighting for the soul of the United States. However, by their second year in office, both presidents had similarly low approval ratings of around 40 percent.
On The Bottom Line, host Steve Clemons asks campaign managers from both sides to share their thoughts on their candidates’ chances in the upcoming White House race. Jason Miller, senior adviser to the Trump campaign, believes that his candidate’s anti-establishment message resonates with millions of Americans, not just Republicans. Meanwhile, Faiz Shakir, former campaign manager for Senator Bernie Sanders, argues that Trump’s candidacy ironically boosts support for the presumptive Democratic candidate, President Biden.
