A president’s first year in office is critical. His successes and failures could set the tone for the rest of his presidency—and mark many elections to come. A good president can such up his party for big wins. A bad president… not so much.
So, what has Biden done to help his party win big next year? Well, he opened the border, creating a national crisis. He failed to get enough Americans vaccinated. He tanked the economy with massive inflation. He wants to make it worse with new taxes and government spending.
And this week, we’ve seen his incompetence ruin a once-free nation overseas.
Biden’s falling approval numbers is enough to know Americans aren’t happy. Even liberal outlets are giving Biden a terrible score.
Now, a special election up North might be giving us a preview of the 2022 midterms. And Democrats are not happy.
In what could be an indicator of things to come in the 2022 mid-term election, the GOP flipped a state senate seat in a Connecticut special election on Tuesday night – the first flip for either party in 2021…
“State Republicans tonight delivered the first flip of a state legislative seat in a special election by either party in 2021, as Republican Ryan Fazio defeated liberal Democrat Alex Gevanter in Connecticut’s state Senate District 36 – a district Joe Biden won by more than 25% in 2020.”
To illustrate the significance of tonight’s victory, the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) told its supporters in a fundraising email that a loss in Connecticut’s state Senate District 36 would put all of the committee’s 2018 gains in jeopardy. [Source: Breitbart]
You might not live in Connecticut. You might not even live near Connecticut. But this race could have implications for the entire country.
This is the first special election in a legislative body post-2020 where one party flipped a seat controlled by the other. And it was in a district that Biden won by a huge margin. He won this Connecticut district by 25%–a very strong margin by any standard. But today, a Republican took the state Senate seat, sending shockwaves through the Democratic Party.
This sort of thing isn’t supposed to happen, especially so early on in a president’s administration. Imagine a strong Trump district in Texas or Florida electing a Democrat? That’s pretty unusual, right? But up in New England (where moderate Democrats tend to do very well), Republican was able to take a Democrat seat.
What does that suggest? That voters, even in traditionally liberal areas, are really upset with Biden. He promised the moon during the election. Promised to be “better” than Trump. But everything he’s done has been a disaster.
Afghanistan was only the latest in a long string of failures. Biden refuses to keep his word. Worse than that, he refuses to acknowledge when he is wrong and try to mend his ways. He ignores the complaints and frustrations of the American public to blindly push his agenda. An agenda, conveniently, that helps China and Russia—not the United States. (Why would he do that?)
Voters in Connecticut are seeing the light. And more across the country might as well.
