Terry Moran, senior national correspondent for ABC News, claimed on Sunday that President Joe Biden does not have enough support from voters to save Dems in the coming midterm elections.
As a result of “economic headwinds” and Biden’s dismal approval ratings, which have repeatedly hit historic lows over the first half of his presidency, according to Moran, Democrats are losing support.
According to Moran, “I think the economy is so tough for so many people that some of the air drained out of that balloon. Food prices, rent increases, retirement assets, if any, are disappearing, and even the abortion debate, which did influence numerous special elections and Kansas’ extraordinary referendum outcome. Although it will be the top concern for millions of people, I just believe that the economic headwinds are so strong and that Biden simply does not have the oomph as a contender anymore.”
“He can’t even make his argument, and people aren’t keen on having him around. The Dems aren’t in any better shape, in my opinion,” he said.
The majority of probable voters in the upcoming midterm elections favor Republicans, according to a recent study by the Monmouth University Polling Institute. According to the poll, 47% of Americans want Republicans to regain control of Congress, compared to 44% who want Dems to do so.
As the Consumer Price Index (CPI) and gas prices have risen to a 40-year high in recent months, inflation and the economy have reached a pinnacle as the main concerns for most voters. According to a Monmouth University study, 30% of voters are satisfied with Biden’s management of inflation, which 82% of respondents deem to be a “very serious” problem.
806 individuals who were eligible to vote were surveyed, and the margin of error was 3.5%.
In a recent poll conducted by the ABC/Washington Post on September 25, the president’s support rating dropped under 40%. Only 36% of voters had a favorable opinion of his handling of the economy, while 74% of voters were dissatisfied. Voters overwhelmingly trusted Republicans to address the important concerns of the economy, inflation, and crime. Between September 18 and 21, the poll surveyed 1,006 individuals, 908 who were registered voters, with a margin of error of 3.5%.
