President Joe Biden’s failing “infrastructure” agenda on Capitol Hill reportedly threatens Democrats’ 2022 midterm chances to maintain control of the government.
David Wasserman from the Cook Political Report told the Hill that Biden’s failing agenda and sicking poll numbers are directly tied to the chances Democrats have in the 2022 midterms.
“Biden’s approval rating matters more to midterm outcomes than the success of his agenda,” Wasserman said. “If a large infrastructure bill passes, there’s no guarantee his approval will recover. … But if it fails, it could get worse — and that’s what Democrats have to fear.”
According to Civiqs polling, which Breitbart News reported in September, overall, in 25 out of 27 seats in 18 battleground states, Biden’s approval rating is underwater. In 12 out of 13 races where Republicans currently hold the seat, Biden has a negative approval rating. In seats currently held by a Democrat, 13 out of 14 seats face Biden’s underwater approval rating.
Democrats’ fears that Biden will further drag down his party is a real worry, considering Democrat lawmakers have been fighting over both the $1.2 trillion “bipartisan” bill and the $3.5 trillion reconciliation package for months now.
“It’s very risky to have to go back to your district and tell people that you voted ‘no’ on $1.2 trillion of infrastructure funding,” Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (D-TX) complained about the Democrat infighting.
Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), cochair of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, said he is desperate to return to his district before the 2022 midterms and tell his constituents federal government jobs are coming to the area.
