Joe Biden’s poll numbers continue to hover in the danger zone.
That’s forcing Democrats into an uncomfortable position.
And Democrats held a secret meeting to make one scary choice about Joe Biden’s future.
The president’s approval rating is the number one determining factor in any midterm election.
Joe Biden’s approval rating sinking into the low 40s caused heartburn for Democrat Party strategists.
That’s because it is not just the public polls that show the public souring on Joe Biden.
The Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee’s own polling of battleground districts shows a majority of voters disapproving of Joe Biden.
POLITICO exclusively reports:
Most Democrats are worried that Biden’s flagging polling numbers — with an approval hovering in the low 40s — will lead to a thrashing at the ballot box. With historical headwinds and a GOP-dominated redistricting process already working against them, they fear that unless Biden pulls out of his current slide, Congress will be handed to the Republicans in next year’s midterms.
Even the party’s own polling has the president in the red. A poll from House Democrats’ campaign arm earlier this month showed the president down in battleground districts across the country, with 52 percent of voters disapproving of the job he’s doing, according to three party members briefed on the data.
Democrat members of Congress saw these data and it created an attitude of “every man for themselves” as members of Congress put on a brave face and claimed they could separate themselves from Joe Biden in swing districts.
“I’d like to see his numbers turn around, just because I think there’s a false narrative in many cases about supply chain shortages, gas prices or whatever,” Pennsylvania Democrat Susan Wild declared before adding that, “I care more about my own numbers.”
“I honestly believe that in my district, and in many districts, that it’s a mistake to try to tie your election or reelection to any president,” Congresswoman Wild concluded.
Democrats in swing districts may try to create daylight between themselves and the increasingly unpopular Joe Biden.
But that figures to be impossible.
Democrats passed trillions of dollars in socialist spending bills along party lines with the vast majority of Democrats voting for Biden’s spending spree that polls show voters blame for the surging inflation.
American elections used to center on the phrase “all politics is local.”
That meant that if a member of Congress stayed attuned to his district and performed reliable constituent services they could count on a better chance of swimming against the national tide and hang on to their seats.
But beginning with the Republican wave of 1994, midterm elections took on a feel of a vote of no confidence in the party in power.
Every president beginning with Bill Clinton lost control of at least one house of Congress during their midterm elections.
Joe Biden’s low poll numbers make it unlikely that Democrats’ strategy to try and localize their races in key districts will work.
