Two electoral slippers for American Democrats: Now Trump is sitting on Biden's neck - Politics Abroad

No wonder Joe Biden (79) keeps talking about Donald Trump (75)…

Exactly a year after the incumbent US president defeated Donald Trump in the battle for the White House, the first historic elections were held in the United States. It was in Virginia and New Jersey.

It was also about the question: Can Trump make a political comeback and become the most powerful man in the world again in 2024?

The first answer: Yes, it can. (German: Yes, he can).

Warning shot #1: In Virginia, Democrat Terry McAuliffe (64) fell to the vote against conservative newcomer Glenn Youngkin (54). Joe Biden won here on November 3, 2020 with a runaway victory (plus ten percent)!

Cautionary Shot #2: In New Jersey, where the Democrats have won every presidential race by a large margin since 1992, the duel between current liberal Phil Murphy (64) and Republican challenger Jack Ciatarelli (59) was so close that only a few hours ago it would have been possible. Label a winner. Murphy won 50.2 to 49.23 percent!

The Democrats’ victory has always been considered a bargain. A clear sign of a thin, trembling victory: American voters are unhappy with the liberals!

And there was another warning shot for Biden and Co.: In the local elections in the US state of New York, Democrats suffered painful defeats in many city councils.

Joe Biden should not be at all happy with the content in the American media. “Democrats’ weakness exposed,” the liberal New York Times ruled. The conservative New York Post reported, Democrats froze. It is not enough to be anti-Trump alone.”

In fact, Joe Biden mentioned Trump’s name 24 times in a speech during his McAuliffe campaign appearances. But Virginia voters were unimpressed. Fear of Trump seems to be a thing of the past. Meanwhile, the fear of rising taxes and inflation is omnipresent.

The presidential election for US governors is like a cold bucket of water in the face of the man Donald Trump has repeatedly denigrated as “sleepy Joe.”

Because it is now increasingly clear that in the upcoming congressional elections in the fall of 2022, Democrats will lose majorities in the Senate and House of Representatives. Then Biden – who is already having trouble paying his budget and investment programs – will eventually be a “lame duck”. Chief can’t practically move anything anymore.

W: An NBC poll this week showed that only 42 percent of Americans think Biden is doing a good job as president. This was said in April by 53 percent.

In addition, seven out of ten American citizens believe that the country took the wrong path under the 46th president. Nearly half of Democrats would prefer to enter the presidential race with a candidate other than Joe Biden in 2024.

Accordingly, Trump is in a good mood. He did not hesitate and considered last election night a personal success. “I want to thank my base for voting so strongly for Glenn Yongkin. If it weren’t for you, he wouldn’t have come close to victory,” he declared in a statement.

Trump officially supported Yongkin. And although he never appeared with him in public, he did not distinguish himself from the eloquent ex-president.

New Jersey Republican nominee Jack Ciatarelli is also Trump’s man. After his defeat last year, he attended a “Stop Theft” event in which Trump claimed to be the real winner of the 2020 election and Biden only won by rigging mail-in voting.

This makes it clear: Donald Trump is still a force for Republicans.

If several of his candidates win this fall’s “mid-term elections,” a majority in the US Congress, this statement, made last September, must be confirmed: “Only one negative PhD ruling may keep me from running in 2024.”

Then he added, “But I feel very good…”
