Biden confidant: "We are Reagan"
"We are Reagan," a top confidant of President Biden tells Axios. "We had a big plan. We are getting it in place."
- Biden allies point to a Washington Post-ABC News poll from August 1982, with the headline: "Reagan Should Not Seek Second Term, Majority Believes." Fifty-eight percent of those polled said he shouldn't run again.
- Reagan's midterm-summer doldrums echo a poll out last Friday from USA Today and Suffolk University: Two-thirds of voters said they don't want either Biden or former President Trump to run again.
Just over two years after that Post poll, Reagan won 49 states and got the most electoral votes of any presidential candidate ever.
