First lady Jill Biden is not very happy about Democrats and other critics of her husband, President Joe Biden, who are attempting to convince him to end his reelection bid.

Following the president’s recent interview with ABC News, network host Martha Raddatz reported that sources within the White House indicated Biden’s close inner circle encourages him to continue his campaign. They believe he can secure a victory.

“This of course includes his wife Jill who they said is lashing out at those who want him to get out of the race,” she added.

Amid growing concerns about internal discord and media leaks, Biden’s family is reportedly taking steps to consolidate their influence within both his campaign and the administration. Their focus is on mitigating the effects of those within the team who are leaking information to the press and potentially undermining the president’s image as the party’s national convention approaches.

“The debate fiasco has opened up a lane for the family to surpass staff and start helping out their father and brother who they love dearly,” a source close to the family told NBC News.

The Biden family is actively considering which advisers to dismiss as they aim to overhaul their team and redirect accountability for Biden’s recent challenges.

“I believe the family has witnessed blunder after blunder by key staff personnel, and the debate is likely the straw that broke the camel’s back,” the source told NBC News. “Post-debate, the supposed loyal staff, instead of taking responsibility, pointed the finger back at the president and said: ‘His fault.’ I can think of no other singular action that would agitate the Biden family more.”

University of Virginia Center for Politics Director Larry Sabato said during a CNN segment on Friday that the race between Biden and former President Donald Trump is “no longer close” while dismissing the idea that the former could make up much ground doing an interview with ABC News or some rallies to tighten the gap.

“I don’t think [President Biden] can change the dynamic with one interview,” he said. “I suppose you’d say stop the bleeding and the bleeding has been bad. I mean, we’ve been looking at all the data coming in, all the surveys — some public, some private — and it’s bad. Democrats need to understand that things are not stable and it is no longer close. The race between Biden and Trump is no longer close.”

“Just take the four last week, including CNN’s poll — all of them were in agreement, which you rarely see even with well-conducted polls: Biden, who was really maybe even, maybe two points behind Trump, is now — at least in unison in these polls — six points behind,” Sabato added. “That’s millions and millions of voters. And what is it that’s going to restore them? A good interview, a good rally? Come on.”

Meanwhile, while Biden has declared that he is staying in the presidential race against Trump, that does not appear to be what voters want.

A Rasmussen Reports poll shared on Friday is disastrous news for both Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. The poll showed that 55 percent of those asked want the president to withdraw from the presidential election. Another 50 percent said that Democrats should pick someone new, not Harris, as his replacement.

“Importantly, nearly half (48%) of Democratic voters at least somewhat agree that Biden should step aside and let the Democratic Party choose another candidate,” the poll said.
