Three issues will crush Democrats in the 2022 midterm elections. In a recent Ipsos survey, respondents listed the economy, health and crime as the country’s most urgent problems. Bad news for Democrats: Republicans win on all three, hands down.
Number one is COVID-19. During last year’s final presidential debate, candidate Joe Biden said this about President Trump’s handling of the pandemic: “220,000 Americans dead. If you hear nothing else that I say tonight, hear this…anyone responsible for that many deaths should not remain as president of the United States of America.”
Those words haunt President Biden today, as more people have died of COVID under his watch than during the Trump presidency, despite the availability of vaccines and improved treatments.
