Desperate Dems in Disarray: 'Outright Worry' Over Biden's Leadership

Joe Biden and his team are constantly giving us gas when they are asked how are they going to deal with all the nation’s problems, most of which they have created or made worse.


But we’re not the only people that the Biden team is trying to hold off, with just saying all kinds of nonsense and no positive action.

They’re doing it to Democratic lawmakers too, and it’s driving the lawmakers–who are about to get decimated in the midterms–crazy because they’re worried they’re all going to get turned out on their heads. As we noted before, they already see Biden as “rudderless, aimless, hopeless.”

Now, there’s a new report from Politico talking about the “outright worry” that Democrats are feeling about their prospects.

The report points to virtual meetings that the Democratic governors have been holding with the White House.

Don’t just tell us what you’ve done, is how a person familiar with the meetings characterized the feeling among governors, because what you’ve done isn’t exactly working.

Through it all, there’s been a general and growing dissatisfaction with the White House’s response. That budding frustration, relayed by three party officials familiar with the meetings’ contents, has morphed into outright worry. And it’s surfaced elsewhere in recent weeks.

Underlying it all is a concern that Biden and his team are not just out of fresh ideas, but increasingly out of time to turn around their flagging poll numbers before the midterms.


The various lawmakers are looking for direction to help on a variety of issues from baby formula to inflation.

There, lawmakers were expecting to receive guidance on matters as concrete as how to counter Republicans who are handing out free gas cards and baby formula to court irate voters in their districts. Instead, they were met with now familiar talking points about the White House’s legislative successes and the resonance of the message Biden carried in 2020.

So, if we stitch that together and read between the lines, Biden and his team are telling the desperate Democrats the same bull that they’re telling us — his policies are just great, even though they’re not “exactly working.” Americans just don’t understand how wonderful the economy is and how great he is, we just need to be better about the messaging. If that’s what they’re hearing, is it any wonder they’re desperate? Because surely they know that’s not true. What’s worse for them, they know Americans know it’s not true–and that they’re going to say what they think with votes in November.


Democrats seem to think the response is to demonize the Republicans, with things like calling them “extremists,” “ultra MAGA,” or trying to tar them with the Jan. 6 hearings. But the numbers have gotten worse since they tried that tactic, with 63 percent saying they should be focusing on other things like inflation. The hearings are having the opposite effect. Meanwhile, Biden’s numbers have dropped to their lowest ever, in two separate polls as well as in the Real Clear Politics average. He’s now at 30 percent approval in the Civiqs poll.

Democrats have every reason to worry, and as Politico points out, they know that they are “running out of time.”
