After getting slammed at the Supreme Court, Democrats are in an absolute panic about Biden’s chances in November

Democrats were praying that people would ignore the failures of the Biden administration and focus on Trump’s legal problems.

But their hopes were dashed when the Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that you can’t take away voter choices just because they don’t like someone.

Now that their “lawfare” strategy has failed, Democrats are in an absolute panic that voters will focus on the Biden record and growing concerns about his competence.

Democrats fret as Biden’s approval weakens

President Joe Biden is now trailing Donald Trump in polls for several key battleground states, making an already nervous Democrat party even more nervous.

A lot of Democrats assumed that Trump’s legal battles would derail his chances of clinching the Republican nomination.

However, the Supreme Court’s unanimous ruling in Trump’s favor on a 14th Amendment case is just one reason the Left is starting to sweat.

Several high-profile trials for Trump have been delayed, with many wondering whether they’ll reach a verdict before Election Day.

According to Democratic strategist Steve Jarding, Democrat lawmakers “should” worry about what’s to come.

He said, “If you’re Donald Trump and his team, you go, ‘Wow, I’ll take this any day of the week’,” comparing Trump’s strong favorability rating to Biden’s struggles with trying to get the attention of voters.

A Bloomberg News/Morning Consult poll found Biden was trailing Trump in important states like Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, North Carolina, Nevada, and Wisconsin.

Approximately 48 percent of voters in those states said they’d back Trump compared to 43 percent who said they’d back Biden.

Alarms were also raised when a New York Times/Siena College poll conducted last weekend found Trump leading Biden 48 percent to 43 percent among registered voters. 

According to the poll, the majority of voters think the economy is in bad shape, and 47 percent of respondents said they strongly disapprove of Biden’s job performance.

That number is the highest disapproval rating at any point in his Presidency when measured by Times/Siena.

Meanwhile, Senator Peter Welch (D-VT) called the latest Supreme Court decision to postpone a ruling on Trump’s legal immunity claims “outrageous.”

“We’re concerned. This is going to be a tough race, but it hasn’t really begun yet, so a lot of the coverage is just about Biden’s age, not about his policies. The president is going to get out on the stump and he’s going to have an opportunity to show he’s got the energy as well as the intellect and the acuity to do the job,” he said.

Welch also conceded that it was a mistake for Biden to pass up the interview with CBS News ahead of the Super Bowl “in retrospect.”

More disappointments for Democrats

Aside from Biden’s low polling numbers and a rough economy, many Democrats are worried about the Supreme Court’s decision to delay a ruling on Trump’s assertion that he is immune from prosecution on charges relating to the 2020 election, which will likely delay the outcome until the 2024 election is over. 

According to Welch, “That’s outrageous. There’s no excuse for that.”

Then, the Supreme Court ruled 9-0 in a 14th Amendment case in Colorado, which attempted to remove Trump from the ballot.

That decision will affect similar cases in states like Maine and Illinois, while Trump’s campaign sees the decision as a major victory.

Even David Axelrod, former senior political adviser to President Obama, conceded that the recent court battles have been a positive for Trump.

When speaking to CNN, Axelrod said, “All these ingredients, all of these lawsuits and so on, have given him a chance to look indomitable, look strong, look resilient, and that’s actually in some ways helped.”
