U.S. Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) — who currently chairs the House Progressive Caucus — told Jen Psaki that President Biden and the Democratic Party as a whole is in “deep trouble” ahead of the 2024 election. Jayapal was reacting to a new poll from the New York Times and Siena College that has former President Donald Trump up big.
According to the new poll, the former president is leading in five of six swing states, with President Biden only leading in Wisconsin. Trump on the other hand has built a four-point lead in Pennsylvania, a five-point lead in Michigan and Arizona, and slightly bigger lead of six percentage points in Georgia.
The poll also found president Trump leading in Nevada by 10 percentage points, a state that has not been carried by a Republican presidential candidate since 2004.
On Sunday, Rep. Jayapal reacted to the poll during an appearance on former Biden White House press secretary Jen Psaki’s MSNBC program.
“I will tell you, this is the first time, Jen, that I have felt like the 2024 election is in great trouble for the president and for our democratic control, which is essential to moving forward,” Jayapal said.
