Joe Biden

As Biden’s approval numbers continues to plunge, what pro-abortion Democrats are saying a week after losing in Virginia is very encouraging for pro-lifers

Can President Biden’s approval number plunge even further? That’s an honest question, given how the public has turned on Biden.

Sure enough, a USA TODAY/Suffolk poll, released today, found that a barely 3 in 7—38% — approved of Biden’s job in office, his worse numbers in his first year in office. Worse yet,  “Biden’s support cratered among the independent voters who delivered his margin of victory over President Donald Trump one year ago,” according to Susan Page and Rick Rouan.

Just 28% percent of Independents approve of his job performance, while 67% gave him the thumbs-down. “Independents, by 7-1 (44%-6%), say he’s done worse, not better, than they expected,” write Page and Rouan.

Of course, Biden is not the ballot in 2022, but he wasn’t on the ballot a week ago either when pro-life Glenn Youngkin defeat pro-abortion Terry McAuliffe in the Virginia Governor’s race

Studies have concluded that a president’s job approval rating is one of the most powerful factors affecting midterm elections,” according to USA Today. 

Analysts tend to over-interpret Virginia’s outcome since they come a year after a Presidential election. But taken in conjunction with Republican victories elsewhere around the country, particularly  in New Jersey, they paint a very grim picture.

“Republicans could hardly be better poised to recapture the House majority,” according to POLITICO’s Ally Mutnick. “Increasingly aggressive redistricting, a diverse slate of candidates raking in record-breaking amounts of cash and a political atmosphere that just keeps getting more favorable has Democrats watching with a growing sense of dread.”

That diversity showed up in Virginia with Republicans Winsome Sears—a Black women—carrying the Lt. Governor’s position, and Latino Jason Miyares winning over incumbent Attorney General Mark Herring. All the Republicans at the top of the ticket are pro-life, all the Democrats they defeated were pro-abortion.

And pro-life Republicans, buoyed by Tuesday’s wins, are signing up to run for office.

“T]he GOP is having no trouble finding candidates to run, avoiding the recruiting holes that doomed the party’s 2020 chances of taking back the House,” Mutnick reported. “In total, some 850 candidates have already filed, according to figures tracked by the National Republican Congressional Committee.”

Finally, rural America is voting in record numbers for RepublicansPOLITICO’s Zach Montellaro and Elena Schneider put it

“What happened in Virginia and New Jersey is a warning sign for what will happen in every statewide election, either U.S. Senate or any statewide office, because the only way you win statewide in a red or purple state is by getting at least 30 to 40 percent of the rural vote. And we used to be able to get that,” said Jane Kleeb, Nebraska Democratic Party chair. “Why don’t we anymore? We’ve completely lost touch with them.”
