President Biden made a radical claim on Monday to fire up the far-left segment of his base – suggesting that the voting system was under assault, adding that protecting it was the “single most important thing to do.”
Biden’s comments came while speaking at a virtual fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee Monday evening. His purpose there was to build up resources ahead of next year’s midterm elections when Democrats will be defending shrinking majorities in both the House and the Senate.
“The single most important thing that we have to do is we have to protect the voting system, protect the sacred right to vote,” Biden said from the Executive Residence. “It’s under assault in ways that I haven’t seen in my entire career.”
Biden blamed the fragile state of the country’s voting system on Republicans (shocker), whom he accused of wanting to dictate which votes count.
“It’s outrageous. We’re going to fight like hell so that doesn’t happen,” Biden said. “That’s one of the most important things we can do.”
Biden then turned his sights on the 2022 midterms, imploring Democrats to get their act together, lest their failure to do plays into a Republican victory.
“We won in 2020 as a unified party. As we look to 2022 … the question the American people are going to be asking is whether we’re helping them and their families and do we understand what they’re going through. Can we deliver?”
He accused Republicans of offering nothing but “fear and lies and broken promises” and said Democrats need to “keep cutting through the Republican fog.”
Republican National Committee spokeswoman Emma Vaughn exposed Biden’s lies, saying in a statement that “Americans are rejecting the failed policies of the Biden administration and turning towards Republicans’ proven message.
“The RNC continues to build upon the successes of our data-driven ground game, and we look forward to holding Biden and the Democrats accountable for their resounding failures when we take back the House and Senate in 2022.”
Joe Biden’s embarrassment of a presidency continues to repel voters away from the Democratic party, and he might not exactly be the best choice for desperate Dems looking to raise money going into a midterm election where they could be facing catastrophe.
The polls have reflected the American people simply are not happy with the Biden-Harris administration amid rising inflation and a new outbreak of a COVID-19 variant with talks of renewed lockdowns just weeks after Biden declared the pandemic all but over.
In a Morning Consult-Politico poll released last week, 47% of registered voters said they had an unfavorable view of Harris, while 45% had an unfavorable view of Biden.
“A recent ABC News/Ipsos poll recently found that just 45 percent of Americans are optimistic about the direction of the country,” The Federalist reported.
“The drop is nearly 20 percent lower than the 64 percent optimism polled in May shortly after Biden completed 100 days in office. The same poll indicated that 55 percent of respondents are pessimistic about the direction of the country, which is up 19 points from the 36 percent who reported the same thing in May.”
