When it comes to the midterm elctions, Joe Biden is an anchor around the neck of the Democrat party.
In the Senate battleground states, his approval rating is on average, underwater by double digits.
This is why none of the Democrats who are running want him to come and campaign with them. He is toxic. He would lessen their chances by appearing with them.
Breitbart News reports:
Joe Biden Underwater by 15 Points on Average in Senate Battleground States
Democrat Senate candidates in battleground states will have a difficult time overcoming President Joe Biden’s underwater approval rating.
Biden’s average approval rating in seven of the top Senate swing states is underwater by an average of 15 points, a key midterm election bellwether metric Democrats fear come November 8.
According to Civiqs, Biden has a negative approval rating in the following swing states: Arizona (-18), Georgia (-20), Nevada (-17), New Hampshire (-1), Ohio (-24), Pennsylvania (-13), and Wisconsin (-13). Not included in the calculation are Biden’s approval ratings in Florida (-15), Colorado (-8), or Alaska (-21).
The sour numbers are one reason Biden has largely remained off the campaign trail. Biden has only traveled to 46 cities and held 11 fundraisers during the 2022 midterm cycle, according to Air Force One logs. Those numbers are contrasted with former Presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama, who campaigned far more for their respective parties in the 2018 and 2010 midterms.
Biden’s own policies have neutralized the president’s popularity and, hence, the ability to help drive campaign fundraising and local media attention, impacting Democrat candidates’ chances of keeping the Senate.
Here’s a video of Tim Ryan of Ohio saying he doesn’t want Biden to campaign with him.
This could be pretty much any Democrat.
"I'm guessing you're not inviting the president to join you here on the campaign trail anytime soon?"
Democrat Tim Ryan, laughing: "No, I'm not."
