To prevent a Republican majority in November, President Biden is using all of his executive authority.
Democratic analysts told Fox News Digital the president is hopeful a succession of executive moves will increase Democratic voter turnout and deflect GOP criticisms on topics like inflation.
Biden’s Poor Approval Rating
Mark Penn, a Democratic researcher, stated there is little doubt Biden and Democrats are fusing their political messaging for the midterm elections with what they can do in the executive branch.
Because of his dismal approval ratings, in particular, Biden felt compelled to act.
Biden’s recent executive moves, according to strategists, seem to be focused on encouraging young voters—who disproportionately support Democrats—to cast ballots.
They use the president’s recent efforts to forgive individuals with federal marijuana possession convictions and forgive student loans totaling more than $20,000 as evidence.
According to polls, a majority of young voters favor both ideas. Younger Americans are also significantly more likely to gain economically from Biden’s student loan handout than earlier generations will. Yet, it will cost a projected $500 billion over the following ten years.
In 2020, Biden narrowly defeated former President Trump for the White House, thanks in part to America’s youth. The group has since expressed skepticism towards Biden and Democrats, though.

To further increase his appeal to millennials, Biden declared on Tuesday the Democrat Party would work to have abortion rights codified into federal law if it wins re-election to Congress in November.

Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, a Republican, remarked, “We do not have the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to support Joe Biden’s poor polling results and assist the Democrats in crawling into midterm elections.”
GOP legislators claim the White House’s political scheming was highlighted last month when it was charged with pressing Saudi Arabia and other oil-producing nations to postpone production curbs until after the midterm elections.
Republicans are only upset since Biden’s decision to use the strategic reserve undermined their general election messaging, according to Democratic strategists who take a more measured stance.
Voters Worry About Costs
Voters are still concerned about the high cost of petrol, but they are also noticing a decline in prices from this summer’s peak, according to a Democratic strategist.
Republicans arguably still stand to gain somewhat from this, but the price differential between July and October, when gas was almost $5 per gallon, was substantial.
Biden has recently taken a number of lesser executive orders outside of big policy directions that could help incumbent Democrats fighting for re-election.
Throughout a trip to the West Coast last week, Biden declared he would turn Camp Hale, a World War II U.S. Army training facility in Colorado, into a historical landmark.
Sen. Michael Bennet, a Democrat from Colorado who is up for re-election this year, but confronting a tougher-than-expected campaign, has long advocated for the plan.
Such demonstrations, according to Penn, a former Clinton White House aide, were strategically planned to give the impression to local voters that candidates had the president’s ear.This article appeared in The Patriot Brief and has been published here with permission.
