The Biden effect: GOP starts linking down-ballot Democrats to an increasingly unpopular president

A new TV ad by a pro-GOP group that backs party candidates running in state legislative elections is going where Republicans have been hesitant to go until recent weeks: President Biden.

in the 2018 elections, there’s a history of the minority party and their allies targeting a first-term president their ads."There’s still a long way to go until next year’s midterms but the growing political parallels for the Democrats between President Obama’s and President Biden’s first terms are hard to ignore," longtime GOP consultant Brian Walsh argued."In both instances, they campaigned as a moderate but then pursued a very partisan and liberal political agenda once in office that ultimately backfired for their party in the midterms."

Walsh, a former top strategist for GOP Sen. John Cornyn of Texas who also served as National Republican Senatorial Committee communications director during the 2010 and 2012 cycles, forecast that"there’s no question that House and Senate Democrats running in battleground races are going to be much more hesitant to hitch themselves to President Biden in the way that they might have nine months ago."

I think there’s a sense that it may have been a rough few weeks for President Biden. But I think folks have known who Joe Biden is for a long time and he’s going to have a chance to right the ship and he’s taking a lot of actions to do that already."

Moyer, a veteran of the 2016presidential campaign and Sen. Cory Booker’s bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, predicted that"the decision to try to tie candidates to the president may not look so good in hindsight, a few months down the road."

House Democrats urge Biden to halt deportations of Haitian migrantsDemocrats have raised growing concerns over the Biden administration’s efforts to remove thousands of mostly Haitian migrants from a makeshift encampment on the banks of the Rio Grande River in Del Rio, Texas. Perhaps that savage should get some hair back (a wig or something) to keep whatever little brain matter she has left from escaping. Asylum doesn't mean that people can go to whatever country they want to. They have to go to the closest country not at war.

Analysis: Biden steps into Democrats' brawl to rescue his agendaAnalysis: While there was no evidence of progress toward a deal Wednesday, the president was tacitly acknowledging the $3.5 trillion budget bill would have to be cut back. This won’t be good.

Biden Admin's Handling Of Haitian Migrants Is Angering Democrats“It is baffling and disappointing that President Biden himself has not clearly and forcefully spoken out,' said former Cabinet member Julián Castro.
