WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – November 07, 2022) The outcome of the midterm elections is expected to shape the political environment for the next two years of President Joe Biden’s first term in office, and could it will influence whether he decides to run again. 2024.
Democrats are in danger of losing their majorities in both chambers of Congress, with polls showing Republicans in a good position to capture the House while control of the Senate remains up for grabs. The White House last month was reportedly increasingly concerned that the Democrats could lose control of Congress as Republicans maintained momentum in the polls.
Biden has repeatedly said he will run again, but has yet to make it official. The Washington Post said the president has been meeting with aides since September to “prepare” the re-election campaign.
However, Biden may face a mid-term disaster in the face of external and internal threats. It is clear that losing control of Congress will hinder Mr. Biden’s agenda as he struggles against Republicans, many of whom have vowed to impeach him.
A loss will also cause more resentment among those who made him the Democratic Party candidate in the first place. Some experts say low voter turnout numbers, health concerns and economic challenges have cast doubt on whether Biden is the party’s best candidate, despite his incumbent advantage.
The mid-term results will be very important for Biden as he charts his future. For starters, they could be a sign of Biden’s potential as a candidate in 2024, evidenced by an October Morning Consult poll that found a third of voters saying they think “a lot” about the head- sit sit when they were casting mid-term votes.
And, going into the midterms, most of the signs didn’t look good. Mr. Biden’s job approval rating was at 40%, as of Friday, according to Gallup. By contrast, during the same period of their presidencies, President Donald Trump’s job approval was at 42% and President Barack Obama’s at 45%.
A YouGov/The Economist poll released last week found that less than half of those who voted for Biden in 2020, 43%, support him running again.
Intermediate indicators so far do not provide much comfort. Pollsters in key Senate races say voter dissatisfaction with Biden’s job performance is one of the main factors fueling the Republican surge.
In addition to being a referendum on performance, the midterm result will also make clear to Biden the likelihood of increasing that performance in the next two years.
Like his predecessors Trump and Obama, Biden was elected to office by his party controlling both chambers. Both Trump and Obama lost control of a chamber in their first midterms.
Delivering on the Democratic agenda and Biden’s 2020 campaign promises will be a critical task in securing a 2024 re-election bid, but it will be more difficult to do so without full control of Congress.
In addition, if Republicans win a majority in Congress, they could begin investigations into members of the Biden administration. For example, US Senator Rand Paul has promised to investigate policies related to the pandemic involving the president’s medical adviser Anthony Fauci.
Probes could also be launched into Hunter Biden’s foreign business deals. Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt is suing the Federal government over allegations that it colluded with social media companies to suppress stories before the 2020 election, including the Hunter Biden laptop story and the COVID “lab leak” theory -19.
Biden himself recognized the worst-case scenario – if Republicans win the House and Senate, they might impeach him.
“I don’t know what the hell they’re going to do with me,” Biden said at a rally in San Diego on Thursday.
Biden is not the only one who is ruining the future of the president, because members of his own party will try to have a say in it. The mid-term result will affect their decisions, as well as ongoing concerns about performance, health, and constant oral gaffes.
“As for 2024, there are already signs that (Biden) has been released from the ticket by members of his own party — something that absolutely must be done for his party to have any chance to win Look at his poll numbers. They are terrible. ,” Director of the Los Alamos Task Force, Greg Mello, told Sputnik.
Biden turns 80 on November 20, meaning he could be 86 by the end of his presidency if he were to run in 2024 and win.
“It is obvious that Biden’s mental capacity is failing. As a result, he is not very responsible,” Mello also said. “His ability to even finish this term depends heavily on the complicit silence of the news media regarding his confusion.”
Trends Journal publisher and financial analyst Gerald Celente predicted that Biden will likely run in 2024 if he can still walk and talk at the same “bumbling” rate.
However, the Democrats could choose to replace him with another candidate if the US economy goes into a deep recession, Celente said. In such a situation, the Democrats would be looking for a candidate who can sell a vision of a renewed economy, he said.
BEST WEDNESDAY NIGHT DEMS
As Biden expects the midterm results to make his agenda difficult going forward, Democrats are focused on trying to ensure that no one returns to the White House.
Trump is reportedly looking to announce the launch of his 2024 presidential campaign on November 14, which could be followed by a multi-day series of political events.
“To make our country prosperous, and safe, and glorious, I will very, very, very likely do it (run for president) again,” Trump said last week at a rally in Iowa. “Ready!”
The midterms will also provide clues for Trump, in terms of knowing who controls Congress and his ability as a candidate based on the success of those he endorsed.
A Wall Street Journal poll released last week found that Trump and Biden would be dead even in a hypothetical matchup, with 46% support each.
Trump maintains similar support to Biden for a re-election bid, with 28% and 27% support respectively, according to the YouGov/The Economist poll.
While a minority of people who voted for Biden said they would support him in the 2024 campaign, more than half of those who voted for Trump in 2020, 55%, said they would support another run, the poll found -opinion.
However, Trump finds himself caught up in a number of legal battles at the moment, including financial court cases in New York and a federal raid on his Mar-a-Lago residence.
The 2024 campaign would also come amid ongoing trials against those involved in the January 6 riot at the US Capitol, for which Trump has been investigated by a congressional panel.
