本月初, Biden debuted the term while attacking conservatives broadly following the leaked Supreme Court draft opinion that signaled the overturning of Roe v. 韦德.

BIDEN’S NEW ‘ULTRA-MAGA’ LABEL CAME AFTER SIX MONTHS OF LIBERAL-FUNDED FOCUS GROUP RESEARCH: 报告

This MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history, in recent American history,” Biden said to reporters on Wednesday, declaring a policy proposal released by Sen. 里克·斯科特, R-Fla。, 的 “ultra-MAGA agenda.

在此期间 “随着时间的推移” YouTube 上的片段, Maher read a question submitted by one of his viewers about whether Biden’s new attack is aneffective messaging strategy.

He was saying it as a pejorative, 对?” 马赫开始. “He was saying ‘ultra-MAGA.’ But ‘MAGA’ means ‘Make America Great Again.’ I could see how that wouldn’t be a great-

I thought it was a premium brand,” political scientist Ian Bremmer interjected with a quip. “你懂, like in gas. 你懂, at four bucks and fifty cents a gallon, ‘Ultra-MAGA,’ that’s gonna work better, 对?”

Biden’s new label for Republicans has quickly been embraced by the right from lawmakers to the former president himself.

But according to The Washington Post, 的 “ultra-MAGAmessaging came from a six-month research project from the liberal group Center for American Progress Action Fund and headed by top Biden aide Anita Dunn.

The polling and focus group research by Hart Research and the Global Strategy Group found that ‘MAGA’ was already viewed negatively by voters — more negatively than other phrases like ‘Trump Republicans,’” the Post reported Friday.

In battleground areas, more than twice as many voters said they would be less likely to vote for someone called a ‘MAGA Republicanthan would be more likely. The research also found that the description tapped into the broad agreement among voters that the Republican Party had become more extreme and power-hungry in recent years.

CAP Action Fund president and executive director Navin Nayak told the Post, “All of that extremism gets captured in that brand,” 添加 “versatile epithetapplies to every political issue including abortion and climate change.

We are not trying to create a new word. This is how they define themselves,” Nayak said.

The White House was quickly on board with the president’s new messaging with Psaki declaring itthe president’s phrase,” with Biden giving MAGAa little extra pop.

Psaki told reporters, “Whether it’s tomorrow or in days and weeks ahead… you will all continue to hear him talk more about his concern about ultra-MAGA Republicans and their agenda.

Journalists were immediately skeptical by the new slogan, some even comparing to the Biden administration’sPutin’s Price Hikemessaging attempting to blame soaring inflation and gas prices on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine despite how both were surging months before the conflict began.

Critics in the media suggested thePutin’s Price Hikepush was not resonating with Americans as polls show voters placing more blame for the economic woes on Biden’s policies than Russia.
