One of President BidenThe media’s most dedicated cheerleaders sounded the alarm on Monday over Biden’s low approval ratings, calling them “deeply worrisome” to Democrats hoping to retain control of Congress in the Mid-term 2022.
Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin issued a stark warning to Democrats about their midterm prospects in her column, before calling on Biden to step in and save the party from a devastating defeat in November.

“President Biden’s approval ratings remain a deeply worrisome sign for the mid-term prospects of congressional Democrats. Moderate Democrats in swing districts who voted forcefully on the Build Back Better package to see the bill win collapse in the Senate are particularly vulnerable,” Rubin wrote.
“If voters are mad at Biden, they’ll likely take their anger out on anyone with a ‘D’ after his name.”
Rubin listed several things Biden should do by November to help his party avoid an impending bloodbath:
First, the liberal pundit encouraged Biden to take advantage of photo ops to “increase visibility.”

“He may venture beyond the White House more than he has,” she wrote. “It is disconcerting that his administration announced last week its dramatic release of one million barrels of oil per day from the White House Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Why not talk to energy workers in Texas or install a podium somewhere in Pennsylvania?… A two- or three-day cross-country tour focused on lowering fuel prices would increase visibility.”
Rubin also encouraged Biden to “drop the Build Back Better proposal” and propose a more targeted bill aimed at tackling inflation by taxing “the uber-rich and cutting prescription drug prices.”
“No more talking about child care, universal pre-kindergarten and the rest,” Rubin said. “If Democrats can survive the midterm elections, they can come back later for these articles.”
As the Hunter Biden scandal heats up, Rubin said Biden should adopt anti-corruption measures to “demonstrate Democrats’ commitment to transparency.”
“Biden seems so insistent on ‘rising above the fray’ that he does little to protect fellow Democrats in future terms,” she wrote. “If he still holds for bipartisanship, he lives in a different political universe.”
Rubin’s warning comes shortly after MSNBC’s “Meet the Press Daily” host chuck todd expressed concern about the Democrats’ dwindling chances of victory in November with a “mid-term meter” that put the president’s party in the “shellacking” category, below bad, decent and outstanding.
