The consensus is that the midterm elections in 2022 will prove to be a political disaster for Democrats. First, historically, the party in power usually loses seats. Biden’s low approval ratings are also affecting his party. More than 30 House Democrats have announced that they will be retiring.
Biden argued that his party could challenge history at the Democratic National Committee’s winter session on Thursday. How? They just need to replicate their 2020 enthusiasm. He claimed that if they do this, they will keep the Senate and the House — and add seats.
It’s Biden’s job to rally his party, but it’s difficult to imagine him saying that with a straight-face. Jaime Harrison, DNC Chairman, said that Biden was responsible for making it possible for the DNC meeting in person for the first time since two years. It’s not as if Dems are lying about anything.
