Former President Barack Obama is set to join the campaign trail of Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden for the fundraisers. So far, Obama helped to raise more than $4 million from over 120,000 individual donors for the campaign of his former running mate. In the lead up to the fundraisers, a small-dollar fundraiser event is scheduled for Tuesday night, which will be held online due to coronavirus restrictions. This event will be a test for Obama as he is back on the campaign trail after years. It would be interesting to see if Obama can transfer his popularity into funds for Biden's campaign as he was his running mate for two consecutive elections.
As per Obama's team, this will be the first of the many events for the former president. He will be having a busy schedule heading into the fall, as he is determined to help and elect both Biden and Democrats running for House and the Senate. During his time as President, Obama, on a couple of occasions, was not successful in helping the Democrats. He lost control of the House in 2010 and the Senate in 2014. But as this is the time of President Donald Trump, who is known for his uncertainties, Biden's team is hopeful that Obama and his presence in the campaign will help Democrats, especially among young and Black voters. Biden might win the Black voters' support unanimously as President Trump was against the protests that took place after the death of George Floyd in police custody.
"Black voters and young voters are the two groups that Biden needs to make an impact. Four million Obama voters of 2012 sat out in the 2016 elections. That's a huge number, and Obama obviously has a strong connection with them. They have high regard for Obama, and they need to be persuaded to vote for Biden," said Dan Pfeiffer, the former White House communications director. "Keeping in mind the present situation of protests over Black Lives Matter, having the first Black president campaigning for you publicly would be extremely helpful for Joe Biden," said Ben Tulchin. He polled for Bernie Sanders's presidential campaign.Dr. Dhillon Randeep
