As Democrats face the prospect of landslide election losses this November, some Democratic strategists are admitting just how toxic the Biden administration has become for rank-and-file Democrats.
"Any [midterm election candidate] who’s polling is getting a poll back right now showing the president is more of a drag than Obama was in the midterms," Democratic strategist Danielle Cendejas told Politico. "That, I think, leads to a pile on of Democrats who are frustrated about their prospects."
Meanwhile, one adviser connected to "major Democratic donors" told Politico the administration's campaign to pass the Inflation Reduction Act — which does not actually reduce inflation — is misguided and out of touch.
"[The Biden administration] doesn’t understand that the only thing people care about is inflation, gas prices and the economy writ large," the adviser said, adding that "nobody gives a s***" about the bill.
Democrats are increasingly voicing their frustrations because presidential approval is closely related to the outcome of midterm elections. Thus with Biden's job approval rating under water by double digits, Democrats are positioned to lose control of the House and Senate in November, essentially rendering them powerless for the second half of Biden's term.
