Now that Democrats are in serious trouble politically heading into November’s midterm elections, they are shifting their messaging on COVID.
During the opening monologue of his Fox News program, host Greg Gutfeld slammed some Democrat governors for finally lifting vaccine and mask mandates.
Gutfeld also ripped Democratic lawmakers and their allies in the mainstream media for trying to claim that the Biden administration deserves credit.
Below is a partial transcript:
GUTFELD: So I saw something weird last night, and for once it wasn’t in the mirror above my bed after a night of heavy drinking. I turned on CNN and there I saw John King going through some pretty bad numbers for the president, and none of them even involved his IQ.
JOHN KING: Look at how bad these numbers are for the president. Only four in 10 Americans, 41 percent at the moment, approve of his job performance. Nearly six in 10 — 58 percent — disapprove. That’s a tough number early in a midterm election year for the president of the United States. Now, why is this happening? This is fascinating. We asked people, “What has President Biden done for you that you approve of?” Fifty-six percent of Americans, nearly six in 10 Americans, that means a decent amount of Democrats said, “Nothing.” They disapprove of everything that has happened.
GUTFELD: So that’s amazing. You know, if you’re quiet enough, you can hear Jimmy Carter letting out a sigh of relief because that’s a lot of people who say Joe’s done nothing for them, and that’s coming from CNN, so I would double it.
I take everything I get from CNN and double it, including Brian Stelter’s BMI.
Of course, CNN defended Joe, pointing out that he passed that infrastructure plan. And King worries that the good stuff Joe didn’t, did — is really sinking in?
Where is this good stuff that we were promised? In the same poll about COVID, another 60 percent said they were angry and 75 percent were burned out…
Nice try. You see what’s happening. As the pandemic comes to a close, they want credit for closing it.
Republicans need a net gain of 5 seats to regain the House majority in the midterms next November.
House Democrats and senior members are pressing rank-and-file members who have announced they will step down this year ahead of what is expected to be a brutal midterm election cycle for the party to stay in their races no matter how stiff the political headwinds.
Members who have announced they will step down are being asked to run for reelection as Democrats hope to stave off what many expect to be a major Republican wave as Joe Biden’s approval ratings continue to tank and Kamala Harris remains equally unpopular amid rising inflation, a chaotic border, and foreign policy crises.
A new poll reveals that only 20 percent of Democratic Capitol Hill staffers believe that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer should remain as leaders of the party after the 2022 midterm elections.
In a survey from Punchbowl News, senior staffers on Capitol Hill anonymously revealed that aides from both parties were open to a change in leadership.
The poll found that a whopping 62 percent of Democratic staffers said Democratic leadership should change no matter the outcome of the midterms.
