President Joe Biden made an astonishing forecast Thursday while addressing the Democratic Party’s prospects in the November 2022 midterm elections.
Historically, the party in power loses congressional seats when citizens dissatisfied with the administration vent their rage on MPs.
Not only that, but due to the situation of the country and the globe under Biden – upheaval in Ukraine and a fatal, catastrophic departure from Afghanistan, along with unprecedented inflation, high gas costs, and ongoing supply chain concerns — the Democrats are expected to suffer a hit later this year.
However, the president not only sees a path ahead for his party, but he also believes Democrats can make gains in November: all they need to do is replace the alleged energy that propelled them to power in Congress and the White House. “If we accomplish that, we’ll maintain the House and the Senate – and add seats,” he asserted.
According to the Washington Examiner:… In an address to the Democratic National Committee’s winter meeting in Washington on Thursday night, Biden made a victory lap, celebrating his record on COVID-19 and the economy as his party prepared for defeat in November.
In his introduction of the president, DNC Chairman Jaime Harrison remarked that it was their first in-person gathering in two years, with over 400 committee members present, and he credited Biden. “We’re back together because Democrats came through,” he remarked. With that statement, Harrison then led a call and answer, citing everything from the vaccine’s rollout to the appointment of the first black woman to the Supreme Court.
Biden’s confidence comes as his job approval numbers continue to plummet. “President Joe Biden’s popularity rating has taken another hit amid growing prices for petrol, food, and other products and services throughout the country,” Breitbart News said on Friday.
“According to Rasmussen Reports, Biden’s popularity dropped to 39% in the most recent survey issued on Thursday, with 60% of respondents disapproving of his job performance.” Only 20% strongly approve, compared to 50% who strongly dislike.” Earlier last month, a poll indicated that a sizable majority of Americans do not feel Biden is psychologically prepared to serve another term.
Additional results entail: 75% of people dislike the economy, with 39% stating it is in “bad” shape. 54 percent believe the economy has gotten worse since Biden entered office, while 17 percent believe it has been better and 27 percent believe it has remained the same.
50 percent blame Biden for the 40-year high inflation rate, while 48 percent blame him for “not much” or “no culpability at all.” 59 percent believe Biden is not a strong leader, compared to 36 percent who believe he is; 65 percent of independents believe he is not a strong leader.
