Democratic operative Corbin Trent explained why President Joe Biden is seen as weak and will likely face a primary challenge from his left.
“He’s deeply unpopular. He’s old as shit,” Corbin Trent, a former communications director for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and co-founder of the left-wing No Excuses PAC, Trent told Politico for an article published Friday.
- “He’s largely been ineffective, unless we’re counting judges or whatever the hell inside-baseball scorecard we’re using. And I think he’ll probably get demolished in the midterms.”
- “People will smell opportunity, and D.C. is filled with people who want to be president,” Trent added.
“Will there be a progressive challenger? Yes,” agreed Jeff Weaver, a former presidential campaign manager for Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.
