( – Ahead of the November presidential election, President Biden is going to struggle to convince voters that the upcoming election is a “referendum” on former President Donald Trump. An ABC “This Week” reporter argued that at this stage even Democratic voters were feeling nostalgic about Trump’s time in office. 

On Sunday host Jonathan Karl asked his political panel about the lack of enthusiasm for the upcoming election from demographics that were key to Biden’s election in 2020. 

NPR White House correspondent Asma Khalid in response stated that the Biden campaign was going to have a hard time getting voters to see the election as a referendum on Trump as the majority of them were considering it a referendum on President Biden. 

Khalid claimed that she was surprised by Democratic voters informing her on the campaign trail that they were feeling nostalgic about the years Trump spent in the office. She added that in many interviews she had seen little enthusiasm for the upcoming election. She argued that the factors that had helped bring different demographic groups in support of Biden ahead of the 2020 presidential election, were no longer present. 

She pointed out that in order for this election to be viewed as a referendum on Trump, which is what the Biden campaign was looking for, they would need to work hard as the majority of voters believed that this election was a referendum on Biden. She added that during her recent visit to Pennsylvania, it had become clear that the majority of people were not feeling “great” about the current state of the economy, which she considered shocking.
