'He's Making a Terrible Mistake': Axelrod Explains What May Cost Biden the Election

Democratic political strategist David Axelrod criticized President Biden’s economic messaging on Wednesday, arguing his pride may cost him the election. 

Noting that the economy has improved in the post-pandemic era under Biden, the president’s claim that the hard days are behind the U.S. are off base, as polling consistently shows. 

"I don't understand this. I don't understand all these months later. I thought that he spent $25 million mistakingly last fall touting Bidenomics and making the same argument that the president is making right here," Axelrod said during a panel discussion on CNN.
