Joe Rogan, the popular podcast host, recently expressed his doubts about President Joe Biden’s leadership skills on his show, “The Joe Rogan Experience.” Rogan noted Biden’s age and inability to find solutions to the country’s problems, questioning his ability to win reelection. Comedian Dave Smith agreed, suggesting that Biden’s death was not beyond the realm of possibility.
Biden is losing support from key voting blocs, particularly Hispanics, who are abandoning him in droves. His campaign’s Spanish-language website was marred by translation errors, highlighting the challenges campaigns face when trying to engage with bilingual voters.
Jess Morales Rocketto, chief of Moonshot Strategies at Equis Research and a former digital organizing director for Hillary Clinton, stressed the importance of bilingual outreach in presidential campaigns, citing Bernie Sanders’ successful Spanish-language engagement with Latino voters in 2020.
Republicans are seizing on Biden’s struggles with the Latino electorate, accusing Democrats of failing to understand the issues that motivate them.
Giancarlo Sopo, a Republican communications strategist who worked on translations for former President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign, criticized the Biden campaign’s word-for-word mistranslations, claiming they are not serious about going after the Hispanic vote.
Biden’s favorability has dropped significantly among Latinos in some polls, making it a key challenge for his reelection campaign to win back their support.
