Joe Biden’s approval rating isn’t going to be enough to prop up the Democratic Party in the 2022 midterms. He isn’t associated strongly enough with the Democratic brand.
Speaking of “extremism,” 46% of voters and 46% of Independents see the Democratic Party as being too liberal while only 37% of voters and 34% of Independents see the Republican Party as too conservative. The current perception in the electorate is that the Democrats are more extreme.
You would never know this by watching the media.
Every single night the coverage is about the “rise of far right domestic extremism” and “the January 6th insurrection.” In fact, the “extremism” and “misinformation” has gotten so bad in recent years that draconian censorship and a totalitarian police state is needed to combat it.
Note: James Carville appears to be correct that the noisy identity cultural Left is defining the image of the Democrats.
