Joe Biden wanted to go big like FDR, but some moderate Democrats worry that’s backfiring

WASHINGTON – Is it time for President Joe Biden to take down the massive portrait of Franklin Delano Roosevelt that hangs in the Oval Office?

Last week’s alarm-raising off-year election results and Biden’s flagging poll numbers have Democrats debating whether the president should still go big or whether it’s time to pull back.

“I don’t intend to be anybody but Joe Biden,” the president said Saturday when asked about comparisons with FDR. “That’s who I am. And what I’m trying to do is do the things that I ran on to do.”.

But moderates and progressives in the Democratic Party are divided on what message voters were sending Biden when they elected him in 2020 and on what approach would best position the party for the midterm elections in 2022.
