Kate Bedingfield, a former top White House official who served as communications director, has called on the Biden campaign to publicly share its polling data as calls continue to grow for President Biden to drop his re-election bid.

In a post on X, Bedingfield said, “I know firsthand better than almost anyone how smart the Biden team is about data and about ignoring the noise. They are right that the game here is to convince voters, not pundits. But when the battle over the public data is so overwhelmingly negative, it’s a good moment to put forward your theory of the case. If they have data that supports the path to victory that they see, they should put it out there now and help people who badly want to beat Trump rally around it. People want to see the path.”

This comes as President Biden and his campaign have consistently argued that he is the most viable candidate to defeat former President Donald Trump in the upcoming election. Despite these claims, public polling from tells a different story. The polls show Trump leading Biden in all general election surveys since June 28. Additionally, Trump is ahead in battleground states, with Biden either slightly leading or tied in only two states.

These polls have intensified anxiety among Democrats, with multiple senators, major party donors, and other notable democratic figures expressing fears of a potential defeat in November.

Just today, lifelong Democrat and actor George Clooney publicly called on President Biden to step aside. In a New York Times opinion piece, Clooney wrote, “This isn’t only my opinion; this is the opinion of every senator and congress member and governor that I’ve spoken with in private. It’s devastating to say it, but the Joe Biden I was with three weeks ago at the fund-raiser was not the Joe’ big F-ing deal’ Biden of 2010. He wasn’t even the Joe Biden of 2020. He was the same man we all witnessed at the debate.”
