Republicans say Democrats are moving on because they know the November midterms will feature big losses for the left.
The National Republican Congressional Committee touted the ABC poll, pointing out “Six in 10 Americans report inflation hardships and three-quarters say the economy is in bad shape. Voters trust Republicans over Democrats to handle the economy by nearly 20-points.”
“It’s been obvious for months that vulnerable Democrats have a choice: retire or lose,” said NRCC Spokesman Mike Berg.
ABC reported on the poll:
A career-low 37% of Americans approve of Biden’s job performance overall, with 55% disapproving. That includes just 30% approval among political independents and 10% from Republicans. Even in his own party, nearly a quarter of Democrats either disapprove of Biden (19%) or are withholding judgment (4%).
