Biden gets Roe vs. Wade policy wrong
President Joe Biden has a reversal prediction Roe vs. Wade that, like the rest of his political instincts, is probably wrong.
Biden thinks if the Supreme Court reverses precedent this month, returning the abortion law to the states, it will help the Democratic Party come November.
‘I don’t think the country will tolerate it,’ Biden said says Jimmy Kimmel Last week. “If, in fact, the decision falls like it does and these states impose the limits that they talk about, it will cause a mini-revolution, and they will vote to remove these people from office.
Biden is off base for several reasons.
First, it’s a disgusting way to talk about abortion. Biden doesn’t think the country will accept that some states don’t allow people to kill their children. If that’s true, then there’s something seriously wrong with our country.
Moreover, politically, Biden’s prediction does not come true.
The draft ruling stating that the Supreme Court is considering overturning Roe vs. Wade leaked over a month ago. And yet the Republicans are leading the RealClearPolicies poll average for the Congress by 3.5 points (46.2% to 42.7%). Additionally, Texas banned abortion after six weeks in September, and although Democrat Beto O’Rourke came within 3 points of beating Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in a Senate race American in 2018, it doesn’t look like he’ll win the state this time either. Texas is in the “likely Republican” category for governor, according to Sabato’s crystal ball.
The truth is, Biden is a terrible president with an abysmal approval rating. Biden has a lower approval rating at this point in his presidency (40.1%) than Donald Trump (41.8%), who was considered a historically unpopular president, according FiveThirtyEight.
People are seeing gas prices over $5 a gallon, rapid inflation, and an administrative light on legislative accomplishments. Real wages are falling, making it harder for people to pay their bills. People see Biden and Democrats controlling Congress as ineffectual. This is what will get people to vote in the midterm elections in November.
Whereas Most people may want to preserve the legality of elective abortion in some cases, it is not their primary concern. Most people don’t have abortions and there are ways to avoid unwanted pregnancies, including contraception.
Meanwhile, the rising cost of living affects us all. Biden, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) have shown themselves to be incompetent on issues such as inflation and high oil prices. ‘essence. They will try to get people to vote for the Democrats to keep control of Congress on what will be a matter of state. However, it doesn’t look like it will work. The majority of Americans are not single-cause pro-choice voters.
Unpopular incumbent parties tend to perform poorly in midterm elections. Despite Biden’s prediction, this election will be no different.
