Dowd noted that Axelrod has said Biden was a great vice president and did fantastic things as president.
However, the column notes: “Axelrod drew Biden’s ire because he urged the president to consider stopping at one term.”
“I don’t care about them thinking I’m a p***k — that’s fine,” Axelrod told Dowd. “I hope they don’t think the polls are wrong because they’re not.”
The insult came after Axelrod suggested the President should reconsider his re-election bid because of his age.
The Democrat political strategist sparked the feud by emphasising Biden’s advancing age and deteriorating position in the polls.
Writing on social media, Axelrod said: “Only Joe Biden can make this decision. If he continues to run, he will be the nominee of the Democratic Party. What he needs to decide is whether that is wise; whether it’s in HIS best interest or the country’s?”
He continued: “The greatest concern is that his biggest liability is the one thing he can't change. Among all the unpredictables there is one thing that is sure: the age arrow only points in one direction.”
Suggesting Biden should reconsider his plans to run, Axelrod said the President "needs to decide" whether it is "wise" to runPA
The results have triggered discussions over whether Biden is the right democratic candidate to challenge Trump at the next election.
The new super-poll of 15,000 Americans found that Biden would win the popular vote by 49 per cent but would lose to Trump after failing to hold the swing states.
Biden’s campaign team have played down the poll results and emphasised that the president loves to work late at night on policymaking sessions.
Yet a US political expert has claimed that Biden may be asked to leave by his own party, with some seeing him as “peculiarly weak”.
According to a Suffolk University poll of 1,000 Americans, voters are more likely to trust Trump than Biden in matters of the economy, immigration and foreign policy by 11, nine and six percentage points respectively.
