Democrats Brace for ‘Biblical Disaster’ in Midterm Elections

Between record levels of inflation, unfettered illegal immigration, a war in Ukraine and an increasingly unpopular president, Democrats are preparing for “a biblical disaster” in the upcoming midterm elections.

‘I think this is going to be a biblical disaster,’ an unnamed Democratic strategist said The hill while speaking candidly about the midterm elections. “That’s the reality we find ourselves in as Democrats and no one wants to deal with it.”

The “reality” that Democrats refuse to face is that President Joe Biden’s approval rating is 41%, nearly the lowest of his entire presidency.

On top of that, recently released economic figures show that inflation jumped 8.5% over the past year, reaching its highest level in over 40 years.

Bloomberg News estimated that the average American family would face an additional inflationary tax of $5,200 to buy the same items as last year. American families also saw gasoline prices hit record highs for nearly a week in a row last month.

Then there’s the Biden administration’s departure from the Title 42 immigration law.

Like The hills Niall Stanage explained:

On immigration, the Department of Homeland Security said it was preparing for an influx of up to 18,000 immigrants per day later this year.

The astronomical number could be reached by the end of this summer, given that the administration is expected to drop the use of Title 42 at the end of May. The controversial Trump-era measure had been used to deny entry during the pandemic to migrants, including asylum seekers – allegedly on public health grounds.

Another Democratic strategist thinks there is “general instability” about Biden’s presidency as they enter the midterms.

Democratic strategist Joel Payne said The hill:

We are in a very chaotic time right now. There’s COVID, Afghanistan was last year, now there’s war in Ukraine, and the economy is up or down depending on who you are. There’s this general instability that sank Donald Trump just 18 or 20 months ago, and now it’s Joe Biden’s problem, Joe Biden’s challenge.

Other Democratic strategists have questioned the effectiveness of the party’s multi-trillion-dollar spending programs.

“You have to explain to voters in very concrete terms what you’ve done to help them,” said Democratic strategist Julie Roginsky. “When you use huge numbers like ‘one billion’ or ‘one trillion,’ that’s something that voters just see as spending coming from Washington.”

However, history is not on the side of Biden and the Democrats, as the opposition party typically outperforms the ruling party in midterm elections. As a result, Biden’s fate could potentially be worse than that of former President Barack Obama in the 2010 midterm elections.

“Democrats know the bitter taste of poor midterm results,” Stanage wrote. “The party fared miserably in President Clinton’s and President Obama’s first midterm elections. In 1994, with Clinton in the White House, the Democrats lost a net 54 seats in the House. In 2010, under Obama, they lost 63 seats.
