(Meaww) President Joe Biden’s motorcade passed through the heart of Atlanta this weekend with minimal fanfare, prompting questions about the level of enthusiasm for his 2024 reelection campaign.

The incumbent was in the city for a fundraising event and to deliver a commencement speech at Morehouse College, a historically Black institution.

In 2020, Biden became the first Democrat to secure a presidential election victory in Georgia in three decades. Moreover, the party managed to secure both Senate seats in the southern state.

Having said that, the political landscape in the Peach State has shifted in the past four years, with recent polls showing former President Donald Trump in the lead.

President Joe Biden has seen a decline in support in Georgia

In a video from Saturday, May 18, Biden’s presidential motorcade can be seen driving through the Buckhead neighborhood in Atlanta with only about a dozen in the streets, according to Daily Mail.

According to a recent analysis by the New York Times, the POTUS has seen a decline in support among Black voters, people of color, and younger voters in Georgia.

These demographics were crucial to his narrow victory in 2020 by approximately 12,000 votes, indicating a potentially more challenging contest in the state as the November election approaches.

Georgia’s population has grown and diversified significantly in recent years.

In 2020, this demographic shift, combined with long-term voter registration and mobilization efforts among historically marginalized groups, contributed to Democratic gains in the expanding suburbs around cities like Atlanta.

The momentum was further fueled by the racial justice protests that erupted after the murder of George Floyd, which resonated deeply in Atlanta.

Additionally, the government’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic and the stark disparities in healthcare access provided numerous opportunities for Democrats to appeal to voters.

Why is Donald Trump gaining support in Georgia?

On the other hand, Trump and his associates’ efforts to overturn the loss in Georgia have led to criminal charges. The ex-POTUS is now gaining support due to the backlash against the legal action, as reported by the New York Times.

The cases are “attempting to criminalize political disagreement,” stated Joshua McKoon, the chairman of the Georgia Republican Party, on Friday.

Democrats are worried that voter turnout may not reach the levels of 2020 without the motivating factors of protests and the pandemic.
