Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thehill.com: “Without drastic changes, Democrats are on track to lose big in 2022”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The marked decline in support for President BidenJoe BidenFBI releases first Sept. 11 document following Biden executive order Afghan pilots to be transferred to US base after fleeing to Uzbekistan: WSJ NATO head says alliance signed off on US withdrawal from Afghanistan MORE and his administration nationally and in key swing states indicates that the Democratic Party could endure a blowout defeat in the 2022 midterm elections. 

Moreover, Biden is in a significantly weaker position now than both of his most recent Democratic predecessors — Bill ClintonWilliam (Bill) Jefferson ClintonBidens, former presidents mark 9/11 anniversary Harris to hold fundraiser for McAuliffe ahead of Virginia governor's race Huckabee Sanders invokes Mike Huckabee, Bill Clinton in first television ad MORE and Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaBy defeating Newsom recall, pro-choice women would send a powerful message  Bidens, former presidents mark 9/11 anniversary House panel releases spending bill section on child tax credit, infrastructure financing MORE — at this point in their presidencies, which suggests that Democrats could suffer even more substantial losses in 2022 than the party did in 1994 and 2010. 

Indeed, voters nationally and in seven key swing states disapprove, rather than approve, of the job Biden is doing by a margin of 7 points or greater, according to a Civiqs survey released last week. 

Nationally, 50 percent of voters disapprove of the job Biden is doing as president, while just 42 percent approve. 

For reference, at the same point in Obama’s first term, Obama’s net approval rating was 19 points higher than Biden’s is right now. At the time, a majority of voters (52 percent) approved of Obama, while 41 percent disapproved, according to a Gallup survey released on Sept. 13, 2009.
