Joe Biden’s disastrous presidency is making life hard for all Democrats.
His failures are having an impact across his whole party.
A prominent Democrat made a prediction that could destroy Nancy Pelosi.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi only holds an eight-seat edge over Republicans, while in the Senate, it’s tied 50-50 with Vice President Kamala Harris breaking tie votes.
Democrats didn’t have any margin for error if they wanted to keep control over Congress.
But President Joe Biden has made significant errors in his first few months of office.
Biden has failed Americans overseas, leaving many trapped in Afghanistan, and also at home where both crime and inflation are rising rapidly.
As a result, less than 40% of voters approve of Biden’s job performance, a recent Economist/YouGov poll found.
“For the first time, a greater share of Americans disapprove (45%) of Biden’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic than approve (42%). This week, just 40% approve of the president’s handling of jobs and the economy, while 47% disapprove. In previous weeks, more usually have approved than have disapproved,” the poll found.
This is bad news for Democrats in their 2022 mid-term elections.
Douglas Schoen, who served as an advisor to President Bill Clinton and to the 2020 presidential campaign of Michael Bloomberg, gave grim prognostics.
“The marked decline in support for President Biden and his administration nationally and in key swing states indicates that the Democratic Party could endure a blowout defeat in the 2022 midterm elections,” Schoen wrote in an opinion piece in The Hill.
“Moreover, Biden is in a significantly weaker position now than both of his most recent Democratic predecessors — Bill Clinton and Barack Obama — at this point in their presidencies, which suggests that Democrats could suffer even more substantial losses in 2022 than the party did in 1994 and 2010,” he added.
Biden is more unpopular than either Obama or Clinton and both of them suffered significant losses in 2010 and 1994 respectively.
Schoen explained how bad it is for Biden. “For reference, at the same point in Obama’s first term, Obama’s net approval rating was 19 points higher than Biden’s is right now. At the time, a majority of voters (52 percent) approved of Obama, while 41 percent disapproved, according to a Gallup survey released on Sept. 13, 2009,” he wrote.
“That being said, in the 2010 midterm elections, Democrats lost a net of 64 House seats and Republicans gained six seats in the Senate. Likewise, on Sept. 12, 1993, Clinton’s approval rating was recorded at 47 percent approve and 42 percent disapprove by a Gallup survey. To put that in context, Clinton’s net approval rating was 13 points higher than Biden’s is at the same point in his presidency,” he wrote.
“Yet in the 1994 midterms, Democrats lost a net of 52 House seats and Republicans picked up eight seats in the Senate.”
