President Biden vowed to bridge the partisan political divide but, struggling to garner Republican support for major bills, his administration appears to be changing the narrative by redefinining what "bipartisan" means.

Biden insists he does enjoy support from both parties, however, pointing to Republican voters and officials outside the Beltway.

"If you looked up ‘bipartisan’ in the dictionary, I think it would say support from Republicans and Democrats," senior Biden adviser Anita Dunn told the Washington Post.

"I think it’s a pretty good definition to say you’re pursuing an agenda that will unite the country, that will bring Democrats and Republicans together across the country," Donilon told the Post.

Former Obama chief of staff Rahm Emanuel remarked on the shift, telling the newspaper, "What’s become crystal clear is that Biden has redefined bipartisan." The former Chicago mayor explained that, "it isn’t how many Republicans I’ve got," but "about how many Republican voters or mayors and governors can I get to support my stuff.".


"When I wrote it, everybody said I had no bipartisan support. We’re overwhelming bipartisan support with Republican – registered Republican voters," Biden said.

The changing definition of "bipartisan" comes at a time when Democrats have been justifying the substance of the infrastructure bill by redefining the meaning of "infrastructure.".

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg told NBC's "Meet the Press" last week that the Biden administration would like to have bipartisan legislative support for the infrastructure bill, but indicated that a lack of it would not stop them
