Democrats About to Lose Their Seats in Midterms Shy Away From Joe Biden's Rhetoric

( – The midterm elections are only months away, and Democrats are showing concern about losing their seats in Congress. As their positions are at risk, left-leaning politicians are putting distance between themselves and President Biden. Will it be enough?

Democrats in swing states where Biden won by slim margins are at the greatest risk of losing their seats when the midterm election comes. With Biden’s low approval rating hurting his party, many supporters are deciding to shy away from his administration’s rhetoric.

Representative Don Beyer (D-VA) remains among the Democrats who believe Biden could see an improved approval rating as the economy recovers. Rep. Beyer mentioned that an approval rating of 47% to 50% could change the way the election pans out for his party. Currently, Biden’s approval rating is 41%, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.

Despite Beyer’s optimism, many Democrats, like Senator Mark Kelly (D-AZ), are distancing themselves from the president. The Washington Post noted that Kelly dodged the question of whether or not he wants Biden to join him on the campaign trail. Instead, the senator insisted he wanted to focus on the people of his state, adding that Biden’s border policy hasn’t impressed Arizonans.

In another closely contested swing state, Senator Raphael Warnock (D-GA) also evaded the question of whether or not he wanted Biden to accompany him on his bid for reelection. Warnock, like Kelly, asserted he would focus on what his constituents wanted. A more progressive Democratic candidate in Georgia’s gubernatorial race, Stacey Abrams, has distanced herself from Biden as well.

Will their strategy pay off? Could this hurt the Biden administration’s image?
