Democrats across the country will pay for the misguided economic policies of the Biden administration. The reckoning will come to fruition in November.
Fox: “The upcoming midterm elections will feature a variety of issues, but the No. 1 focus for voters that has the potential to influence the outcome for Democratic candidates, according to strategists and multiple polls, is the economy.
Earlier this week, the Commerce Department said the gross domestic product shrank by 0.9% on an annualized basis in the three-month period from April through June. The GDP also tumbled for the second consecutive quarter, signaling that the economy has entered into a recession.” Three analysts opine on the political fallout of the recession.
J.D. Vance, the Trump-backed Republican nominee for Ohio’s U.S. Senate seat, hammered Democrat Senate hopeful Rep. Tim Ryan for rubber stamping the “far-left agenda” that caused the country to go into recession. https://t.co/7Uwkep5cc4

Jason Rantz, host of the Jason Rantz Show on AM 770 KTTH Radio:
“People are hurting, and we’re being told it’s either not a big deal or it’s not real. We can only take so much lying before we level political retribution against those politicians who are responsible. Maybe Democrats would be able to recover from the clear recession that we’re in if they acknowledged the problem and offered a clear plan. But they refuse to admit the truth. How can we be confident they have a plan to combat the recession and inflation if they won’t even admit it’s a problem?
“And how much more lying do they think we will accept? How stupid do they think the American people are?
“We see an open border, they tell us it’s closed. We see a male, and were told it’s a female. We see high gas prices months before the war in Ukraine, we’re told it’s Putin’s fault. We were told inflation is transitory, then it didn’t really exist, then it was a good thing, then it was Putin‘s fault. And now they just ignore it.
“At some point, all of the dishonesty is going to catch up to them. I suspect that time will be during the midterms.”
Kevin Walling, Democratic campaign strategist and former Biden campaign surrogate:
“It’s been 30 years since James Carville first uttered the words, ‘It’s the economy, stupid,’ during the 1992 election. The observation is as true today as it was then. The majority of Americans will go to the polls in November and vote with their pocketbooks foremost in mind. Democrats have a lot to campaign on, including record job growth and recovery, rapid wage growth and more Americans having quality health care coverage than ever before.
“Those gains are clearly not keeping up with the high inflation we’re all experiencing, however, and Americans are hurting. Democrats must be seen as the party of action when it comes to combating rising prices by passing the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, strengthening the global food supply and taking on price-gouging at the pump. All of those efforts, coupled with contrasting messaging highlighting near-universal GOP obstruction, could help stem the tide up and down the ballot in a tough year for Team Blue.”
Peter Morici, economist and business professor at the University of Maryland:
“With the recession and inflation continuing at an alarming pace, the Democrats’ prospects for holding the Senate fall to almost zero, and their losses in the House would be devastating.”
