America’s midterm elections are seven months away. For many folks across the United States, Election Day can’t get here soon enough.
Countless polls have shown that Americans are displeased with the current trajectory of the country and very much in favor of the GOP taking back control of Congress.
Much of the damage done to America today is due to Biden having both chambers of Congress controlled by his party. If it weren’t for Democrats running the House and the Senate, various spending bills that later triggered inflation never would have passed.
At the end of the day, the current state of affairs in America has made people much less on board with Democrats having power. This explains a recent statement from Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), according to Red State.
McConnell on Expectations for the November Midterms
During a Fox News interview over the weekend, the Senate Minority Leader didn’t hold anything back. McConnell told the network that Democrats have a “good beating” to look forward to in November.
As a basis for this argument, McConnell also pointed out the failure that’s accompanied each and every one of Biden’s policies. The failure materialized in Afghanistan last year; it’s also led to problems with crime, education, US energy, the economy, and more.
Later, the Senate Minority Leader said that if Republicans win the midterms, they’ll ensure Biden has to lead as a moderate in order to get anything finished. McConnell then pointed out that Biden ran as a moderate Democrat in 2020 and should operate his presidency as such.
McConnell’s remarks to Fox News come as Biden’s approval ratings in various battleground states rest at net negatives. This has been the case for quite some time.
Democrats on the November Midterms
Believe it or not, most Democrats seem to be coming around to the reality that they’re in trouble with the approaching elections.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has already begun claiming that she’s in fear of where America’s “democracy” will stand if Republicans take back Congress.
Biden, himself, has echoed similar remarks, alleging that a Republican-controlled Congress will lead to a “sad” two years for the rest of the country.
Meanwhile, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) recently gave an interview to the New York Post where she blamed Biden for not putting more stock into the progressive wing of the Democrat Party.
What’s most interesting is that not a single Democrat has publicly come forward to acknowledge how their policies have alienated so many Americans.
