Democrats are in a state of disarray.
Jaime Harrison, the head of the Democratic National Committee, is reportedly considering stepping down due to tension with the Biden White House.
Basically, Democrats know they’re going to get slaughtered in the 2022 midterms and it’s causing some in-fighting.
FOX News reports:
DNC chair reportedly looking to leave amid tensions with Biden White House
The chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) has reportedly considered an early exit as fears of a Republican rout in the midterms leave him vulnerable amid plummeting approval ratings for President Biden.
In an interview with NBC News, DNC Chairman Jaime Harrison pledged to fulfill his full four-year term, saying he “made a commitment to be president.”
But a report citing current and former DNC officials revealed a strained relationship between Harrison and the White House and uncertainty that he will remain in his role ahead of the midterms, which political pundits have forecast to spell disaster for Democrats.
Biden has taken a beating in polls as his approval rating continues to drop, hitting 41.8% approval and 52.9% disapproval, according to the latest aggregation from pollster 538.
Prominent Pennsylvania Democrats Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman and Attorney General Josh Shapiro declined to appear in a photo-op with Biden during his visit to the state this week. The pair cited scheduling conflicts, which some analysts noted as fairly unusual, particularly as both men are gunning for new positions this year.
One former DNC official said that Harrison has been “marginalized” because he’s “not out there fighting the fight.”
This is the behavior of people who are panicking.
