Thanks because they can’t make it about Biden. He’s too unpopular.
Democrats have been underestimating Donald Trump for seven years. If it weren’t for Covid, they’d have underestimated him again in 2020, and he would have won.
According to the Washington Times:
Democrats from the White House to the city council are gearing up to make this year’s midterm elections about former President Donald Trump and his “Make America Great Again” political movement.
Democratic candidates and liberal groups are increasingly invoking Mr. Trump and MAGA to create a contrast between themselves and Republicans ahead of the November elections. They are using the tactic in red states and blue states alike.
“When we talk about going up against [Texas Gov.] Greg Abbott, we’re also talking about going up against Donald Trump’s Republican Party,” former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, a Democrat running for Texas governor, told supporters in an email Tuesday.
The strategy is partly aimed at reversing the flagging enthusiasm for Democrats and President Biden. Polling shows Mr. Biden’s job approval rating has hit record lows, and Republicans have continuously led Democrats on the generic congressional ballot.
