Front-runner Joe Biden’s Democratic presidential challengers have attacked him for policies enacted under President Obama with whom he served as vice president. Some Democrats complain that criticism of Obama is bad for the party, and Democratic voters are closely divided.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 42% of Likely Democratic Voters believe it is bad for their party when candidates criticize actions and policies during the Obama presidency. Only 26% say it’s good for the party, but 21% say it has no impact. Ten percent (10%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
