Customary knowledge has declared that theSupreme Court's recent rulinghas helped the Democratic Party's political wealth decline. "Rho's collapse may save Democrats in midterm elections, at least in the suburbs," declared one headline from Time magazine, and "Democrats bet on Rho's voting power" read another headline from Axios. ..
Sure, this topic provided a conversation changer from$ 5 petrol and soaring inflation, but will these trends continue until November? I don't know. Here are five reasons.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, President Biden, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer
For one, this decision is the latest to remind us of President Joe Biden's position as a relic of the past. Fifty years ago, a newly elected 30-year-old senator from Delaware declared the Supreme Court "overkill" about abortion. Half a century later, the same man is angry as the leader of the Democratic Party, which will soon turn 80.
Biden follows in the footsteps of Jimmy Earl Carter
But in Biden's camp, on the surface, words alone Not enough. Progressives, such as Democratic Party Congressman Pramira Jayapal, demanded that "more concrete actions were taken ... we all knew this was coming."
Jayapal is correct. The court's decision was telegraphed almost two months ago via an unprecedented leak of the draft judgment. Still, it took almost a week for the president to blow up the filibuster and demand thatthe right to abortion be enshrined in the law. To process. (Don't worry that the Senate Democratic decision to circumvent the filibuster rule 10 years ago paved the way for Republicans to see a conservative majority in the Supreme Court. This is another column topic. .)
This is the second reason. The most extreme voices on the left are at the center, and their ideas are at the center. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has declared that the court has "lost legitimacy" and has proposed an abortion tent in a national park. The aforementioned AOC proposed to impeach the judge. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot shouted "F --- Clarence Thomas." Even in the former (and future),standard supporters of democracy, Hillary Clinton, jumped in and announced,"women will die."

This is the only call to "lower the temperature" in Biden's inaugural address.
Third, the Biden administration is on the verge of being unraveled. According to Real Clear Politics, his approval rate has reached a new low of 38%. At this point in each condition, President Barack Obama's approval was 46% and President Donald Trump's was 42%. And their party was bombarded in the first midterm election. Biden's legislative agenda is hopelessly deadlocked. Instead, his White House has already focused on the onslaught of Congressional investigations at potential events in the Republican Congress.
Worst of all, a quiet whisper about Biden's ability to run for reelection snowballed into a conversation held among key Democrats. Both Clinton and Ocasio Cortez are facing doubts about their plans for 2024. Vice President Kamala Harris' statement that Biden "is running for reelection, and I will be his ticketmate," hardly silenced the allegations.

Speculation naturally left Team Biden. It was frustrating, "the New York Times said. After all, he was elected with the most votes ever within two years.

Since then, both Biden For me, everything was downhill. And the country, which leads us to the fourth reason.
America is rutting towards Independence Day. According to a survey by the Associated Press, 85% of adults believe that the country is heading in the wrong direction, and it's easy to see why. Anyone planning a trip on a holiday weekend will find widespread flight delays and cancellations, soaring prices and shortages of rental cars, and the highest gas prices in US history: American consumers. As long as you face it, you will face choosing one of the prices you face. According to Biden. Even the average cost of cookout has increased by 17% from last year.

Fifth and final factor:President Bidenhas not benefited the economy (or frankly above all). But it was shot in the arms of the GOP voter registration number. New data from the Associated Pressshows that more than one million voters in 43 states have switched to the Republican Party. Americans are voting on their feet long before the election season. The Democratic Party is returning all the profits it made during the Trump era.
The Supreme Court is currently adjourned until October, and a series of recent rulings will begin to settle dust. Then the Democrats will be heading for a daunting medium-term landscape led by the president who has lost more than a few miles per hour . The dice have been thrown and now the person in charge has little to do, but is prepared for the shock.
