(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – While many recent polls have suggested that in a possible rematch between former President Donald Trump and President Biden in 2024, it would be Trump who would emerge as the victor, Biden’s allies have pointed out that this is not the first time that the polls have made such a prediction.
As they point out ahead of the 2012 presidential election, when former President Barack Obama, along with then-Vice President Joe Biden, had been running for re-election, the polls had predicted that Biden would not win reelection.
Kevin Munoz, a spokesperson for the Biden campaign, pointed out that predictions that are more than a year away from the election tend to be quite different when compared to the results a year later. He added that this is not something that people should trust the Biden campaign on, as he pointed out that Gallup had predicted that Obama was going to lose his re-election by eight points only to win a year later.
In a fundraising email, Julie Chavez Rodriquez, the Biden campaign manager, pointed out that the New York Times was one year ahead of the 2012 election and claimed that President Biden would be losing in many key battleground states. However, despite the unfavorable polling in 2011, Obama was able to win re-election. She pointed out that Biden in particular was facing much fewer deficits than the ones Obama had faced when he won.
Throughout his campaign, Obama had managed to maintain a slight polling advantage and had been leading in most of the polls against 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney.
