ABC News senior national correspondent Terry Moran said Sunday that Democrats are doomed for the upcoming midterm elections, arguing that President Joe Biden does not have enough momentum among voters.
Moran said Democrats are losing voters as they suffer from “economic headwinds” and due to Biden’s low approval ratings, which have consistently reached historic lows throughout the first half of his presidency.
“I think the air went out of that balloon in part because the economy is so tough for so many people,” Moran said.
“Food prices, rent spiking, if they’ve gotten retirement funds, those are evaporating and even the issue of abortion — which did drive several special elections and that remarkable referendum result in Kansas. While there are millions of people with whom that will be the number one issue, I just think the economic headwinds are so tough, and Biden … just doesn’t have the oomph as a candidate anymore.”
“People don’t really want him around and he can’t really make his case. I don’t think the Democrats are in any better place,” he concluded.
Recent polling conducted by the Monmouth University Polling Institute found that Republicans hold a favorable view among the majority of likely midterm election voters. The survey found that 47% of voters prefer that Republicans retake control of Congress compared to 44% who prefer Democrats.
