On Wednesday, President Biden urged Democrats to vote in next week’s midterm elections or else “let the dark forces that yearn for power” to undermine American democracy.
At a DNC rally held inside Union Station in Washington, D.C., Biden implored a gathering of supporters not to take the election for granted. The president claimed that Democrats needed to vote because they couldn’t trust Republicans with political power.
We are at a turning point, remarked Biden. “We must speak as a nation with one loud, clear voice and declare that voter intimidation and political violence have no place in America.”
Biden primarily relied on previous rhetoric to portray the elections as a chance to reject the political radicalism of the GOP throughout his remarks.

According to estimates, more than 300 “GOP” election doubters are running for office this year, according to Biden. This isn’t about me, really. It concerns the resilience of our democracy.
Less than a week ago, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was brutally attacked in San Francisco, California. Democrats have jumped to the conclusion that Pelosi and her family were targets as a result of years of GOP criticism, even if the exact reason for the attack is yet unknown.

According to Biden, “falsehoods told for power and profit” are what led to the violence against Democrats, Republicans, and nonpartisan officials who were merely carrying out their official duties. “Lies repeated again and time again to create a cycle of wrath, hatred, and even bloodshed.”
Recent polls indicate that despite 40-year high inflation, Americans are not buying the bluster. Although Biden’s favor rating has increased recently, a recent Fox News survey revealed that Republicans are ahead of Democrats among probable voters for Congress.
According to the same study, 89% of respondents expressed extreme anxiety about price increases and inflation, but only 74% did the same about the country’s persistent political differences.
According to Ronna Romney McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, “Joe Biden pledged togetherness but has instead maligned and smeared Americans, while making life more expensive for all.” Biden and the Democrats are stumbling in the last days because they have forgotten about the worries of families who are struggling to make ends meet, but Republicans are still focused on the issues that matter most to voters.
Republicans were also quick to condemn Biden’s remarks, claiming that the president was indulging in fear-mongering in an effort to strengthen Democrats’ chances of winning elections.

Because he is unable to discuss his policies, which have increased the cost of living, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a Republican from California, claimed that President Biden is “trying to divide and deflect at a moment when America needs to unite.”
