Shooting Themselves In The Foot

You almost have to laugh at the intensity that Democrats are trying to lose, not only this fall, but in 2024. I know what the pundits are saying. They keep harping on the narrative that the races are all tightening, and that the red wave may not be so blood red after all. I know I’ve written about how some of the Senate races are not that close. Well, they’re closing. And it looks like the Dem’s are pulling a play out of the old GOP playbook and are shooting themselves in the foot.

A lot of it has to do with Joe Biden.

After the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Democrats thought that it would be the lynchpin in the Republicans chances to getting Congress back. Certainly no one would vote Republican in the tight Senate races! And here in the AZ, Mark Kelly is using two issues in all of his campaign ads…abortion, and privatizing social security (I didn’t even think that last one was a thing!)

And, as we’ve seen in a New York runoff for the House, abortion rights played a role in that one. In Kansas, voters there rejected doing away with abortions. But there is an underlying problem Democrats up for election this cycle all face.

It’s Joe Biden.

Biden’s decision to cut student loans by $10,000 for those making under $125,000 a year without a real plan on how to pay for it is swamping Democrats’ chances this fall. Apparently, K-baby Harris is the one that was adamant about pulling the trigger on it, and it could just be yet another K-baby hustle that goes flat (insert cackling laugh here). A poll by Reuter’s/Ipsos just released, and taken over two days since the student loan debacle was announced, showed that Biden’s approval rating, which had been climbing into the low to mid 40’s over the past couple of weeks is now at 38%. And that Democrats are taking the heat for it.

72% of Americans in a recent poll say that they are angry at Biden’s decision and that 61% say it will effect their vote come this November!

In Arizona, a new poll shows that Mark Kelly, who’s lead over Blake Masters was almost double digits a week ago, is now down within the margin of error. And that’s with Kelly running five ads to every one of Masters! A new presidential poll (which really doesn’t mean anything) shows that Biden would beat Trump in a presidential election if held today by one single solitary point, 43-42%. 8% said they wanted to vote for someone else.

And in case you’re thinking that the poll was weighted toward Republicans, 1,005 adults took part. 449 were Democrats, 357 were Republicans, and the last 199 were Independents.

Maybe there’s hope for this thing after all!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
