They know Dems are screwed.
Liberal media outlets, ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, and MSNBC, have been voicing their concerns about the Democrats losing their majorities in the November midterms, with hosts of several liberal shows wondering how President Joe Biden could help Democrats avoid that fate.
In a March 23 op-ed published in The New York Times, columnist Thomas B. Edsall stated Democrats were making it easy for Republicans to claim victory in the upcoming midterms. Edsall also called out liberal Democrats for ignoring the working class and tolerating rampant crime.
In a March 30 episode of MSNBC’s “Meet the Press Daily,” host Chuck Todd warned that Democrats’ chances of winning at the November midterms were waning as the “Midterm meter” placed Democrats in the “shellacking” category, which is below bad, decent, and exceptional.
March 30 wasn’t the first time Todd has brought up Democrats’ dismal odds of winning the midterm elections. A few days before that episode, Todd was speaking to Yamiche Alcindor, an NBC News correspondent, and noted that Republicans had received 46 percent of support in an NBC poll, compared to Democrats 44 percent.
“This is a huge red flag,” Todd said to Alcindor, who agreed with his statements.
Hosts on other liberal news networks have also shared their questions about what the President’s party could do to improve their chances of winning the midterm elections.
In March, ABC News host George Stephanopolous questioned Vice President Kamala Harris about how Biden could rebound from his dying polling numbers.
“Can the President provide the kind of relief that is necessary to prevent a Democratic rout in November?” Stephanopolous asked.
CBS Mornings co-host Tony Dokoupil asked a similar question to correspondent Robert Costa, “What can President Biden do [to change the minds of voters] — still a lot of time, but time is drawing near before the midterm?”
Andrea Mitchell, an MSNBC host, shamelessly asked whether Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was “at least helping the Democrats” heading into the midterms.
