According to analysts, President Joe Biden’s recent comments on the economy show that Democrats are already preparing to lose the upcoming midterm elections.
The president has changed his tone in recent weeks, claiming that his policies are to blame for a historic deficit reduction while simultaneously warning that Republicans will collapse the economy and worsen inflation if they win the midterm elections.
According to EJ Antoni, a research fellow for regional economics at the Heritage Foundation’s Center for Data Analysis, the new communications plan is a means of transferring blame for the impending economic collapse on Republicans when they win the November elections.

That's the largest one-year drop in American history.
“In my opinion, the writing has been on the wall for months that the economy is set for future declines, and that writing has now gotten so big that even an ideologue must notice it. Given that polls have also recently turned against Democrats, the party in power seems to be setting up the next Congress to take the blame for its own failures when the bill comes due,” Antoni said.
In a general midterm election, Republicans are ahead of Democrats 49% to 45%, according to a new USA Today/Suffolk University survey.
For months, the Biden administration has attempted to mislead the American people by claiming that either inflation doesn’t exist, doesn’t harm them, or is declining. The White House finally seems to understand that the American people cannot be duped into believing the economy is strong. That would explain the change from assigning blame for a bad economy to one they claim to be strong rather than taking credit for it.
The president has also used deceptive rhetoric to argue that his policies were to blame for the record achievement in deficit reduction. The claim made by the government is false, according to economic data from the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, and the decline was caused by reductions in funding for the emergency COVID-19 program rather than by actions taken by the Biden administration.
