Joe Biden Predicts Democrats will take Senate, have Chance to Keep the House in Midterms, the president of the United States, bragged about his economic policies on Friday and said he intended to speak with oil companies about high prices and record profits as he predicted Democrats will win the midterm elections on Tuesday despite polls showing Republican gains. Biden is attempting to convince unsatisfied voters that he has improved the economy.
Biden visited Viasat Inc. (VSAT.O), a U.S. communications company in Carlsbad, California, as part of a three-day, four-state campaign tour, to highlight initiatives to boost semiconductor chip production and address supply chain challenges that first surfaced under his administration.
Biden signed the Chips and Science Act into law in August, with some Republican support, in an effort to boost domestic semiconductor manufacture in response to the slowdown in the production of cars and high-tech goods like those made by Viasat.
Biden stated at Viasat that the government’s most recent employment report, which showed that the U.S. economy added 261,000 jobs last month, was a sign of progress.
He declared that he intended to have a “come to the Lord” conversation with American oil firms soon to express his displeasure over their record profits at a time when consumers are facing high gas costs.
After the address, Biden explained to reporters that the meeting has not yet been scheduled. According to the White House, the president was merely stating his commitment to pressuring businesses to alter their conduct.
In order to support Representatives Lauren Underwood and Sean Casten. Two Democratic Illinois House members who could lose their seats if Republicans do well in the upcoming midterm elections, Biden traveled from California to the Chicago region on Friday night.
“I don’t buy the idea that we’re in serious difficulty.” Before adding that he thinks Democrats will keep the house and senate, Biden told fundraisers gathered there.
When voters go to the polls on Tuesday to decide whether he and his fellow Democrats maintain control of the U.S. Congress, Biden stressed that inflation was his top priority and that he was taking their economic worries seriously.
Folks, even as gas prices continue to decline, our economy continues to expand and create employment, he remarked. We are aware that people are hurting due to inflation. However, he noted that there are “bright spots” where the nation is recovering.
Republicans are expected to gain control of the U.S. House of Representatives and possibly the Senate in the upcoming elections, which would give them the authority to obstruct Vice President Biden’s legislative agenda for the ensuing two years.
Biden Predicts Democrats will take Senate, have Chance to Keep the House in Midterms. Historically, during the first two years of a new president’s term, the party in the White House loses control of Congress.
Democrats, according to Biden, may this time buck the trend. “We’re going to triumph this time. I’m pretty optimistic about our possibilities “Democrats have an excellent chance of capturing the House of Representatives, he continued.
The last stop on Biden’s campaign tour will be a joint appearance with former President Barack Obama in Philadelphia on Saturday.
Voter worries over high inflation have harmed Democrats’ electoral prospects, and Biden’s public popularity rating has stayed below 50% for more than a year; it was 40% in a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll.
Additionally, Democrats claim that Republicans supported by former President Donald Trump pose a threat to American democracy, and Biden has issued a warning about this.
