As the 2024 election looms, President Joe Biden's standing is causing increasing consternation, with the President reportedly questioning some of his strategic choices, according to NBC News.

The news outlet's sources include lawmakers and administration officials who have expressed their concerns in a series of interviews.

With the election just eight months away, Biden is lagging behind former President Donald Trump in almost all hypothetical matchups in crucial swing states. The President's growing concern about his reelection bid is reportedly causing frustration among other Democrats, as per the interviews conducted by NBC News.

Democratic Washington Rep. Adam Smith expressed his expectations of Biden to NBC News, stating, "Biden stood up in front of the whole world and said, ‘I’m ready. I’m the guy who can take down Donald Trump.’ So, he goddamn well better do it. We don’t have time for him to be worried about whether or not people are saying things right or the poll numbers are where they should be. I want focused energy and not defensive anger.”

In a meeting, Biden reportedly showed frustration while examining poll numbers from Michigan and Georgia, where his popularity had dipped due to his handling of the Israel-Hamas war, according to a legislator. The President, aware of the importance of these states for his 2024 victory, allegedly began to shout and swear.

White House spokesperson Andrew Bates defended the president's decisions to NBC News, stating, “President Biden makes national security decisions based on the country’s national security needs alone — no other factor.”

As Biden's frustration with his reelection effort reportedly grows, he is said to be venting his anger on his staff.

While Biden receives conflicting advice from his staff on how to address concerns about his age, he is reportedly privately questioning his next steps. A former Biden administration worker told NBC News, “The man’s been successful for decades in Congress and became Vice President and president. If you try to change the person, you’re making a mistake. Let the President go out there and do his thing.”

As Biden's poll numbers falter, Democrats reportedly agree that he needs a coalition of surrogates to help disseminate his reelection message. Democratic Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens told NBC News that it is the responsibility of city and town leaders to promote Biden's accomplishments.

Dickens reportedly contrasted Biden's style with Trump's, stating, “Coming after a blowhard like Trump who tells you every day what he hates and what he likes, Biden is … soft and calm and getting the work done.”

Former Democratic senator from Louisiana, Mary Landrieu, criticized the White House's communication efforts regarding Biden's successes. “I think it’s actually a bit of a failure of communication on the part of the White House,” she told NBC News. Landrieu added that there is a "real story to tell" about the President's progress in addressing American high-tech manufacturing, stating, “It’s a winning message and it’s about jobs, prosperity and evolution. If that message can be communicated, I think the American people will respond.”
