Raymond La Raja, political science and co-director of the UMass Amherst Poll, is interviewed about President Joe Biden’s speech at the opening of the NATO summit in Washington on Tuesday and divisions in the Democratic Party regarding Biden’s reelection bid. “He delivered a good speech. He looked frail at the same time,” La Raja says. “But this was a good opportunity for him to convey vigor.”

La Raja is also quoted in an article about support for Biden’s candidacy among elected officials in Massachusetts. “These are people who have influence over blocs of voters. And as the pressure builds, everything changes,” he says. “It’s not at a tipping point—yet.”
