Democrats are worried about New York.

Joe Biden won New York by 23 points in 2020 but recent polling has shown Trump gaining ground.

Politico reported:

President Joe Biden has a new problem: a competitive race in deep blue New York.

Elected officials, union leaders and political consultants are panicking over polls showing a steady erosion of Biden’s support in a state he won by 23 points four years ago. They’re so worried they’ve been trying to convince the Biden team to pour resources into New York to shore up his campaign and boost Democrats running in a half-dozen swing districts that could determine control of the House.

But the warning signs are impossible to ignore and have been building over the past year. Two private polls conducted in a swing New York House district and reviewed by POLITICO — one in September and another in March — found former President Donald Trump leading Biden there by 1 point, a virtual tie. And public polls over the last four months found Biden’s lead had winnowed to just 8 points across New York — an unusually narrow gap in a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans 2 to 1.

Now Democrats want Biden to get serious about the Empire State as they warn of the existential crisis to democracy posed by Trump’s potential return to the White House, according to interviews with 10 Democratic Party officials, consultants and political leaders.

Democratic Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine told Politico that he believes New York is “a battleground state now.”

The New York Post reported:

A top Manhattan Democrat warned Wednesday that President Biden’s plummeting poll numbers in deep blue New York indicate that the Empire State will be “a battleground” in the 2024 election.

“We’re still acting like this is a one-party state, which for pretty much 20, 25 years it has been,” Democratic Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine told Politico.

“I truly believe we’re a battleground state now.”
