“Our democracy is in jeopardy”… and an “important statement” from Trump

US President Joe Biden, in a heated final debate ahead of congressional elections that begin today, warned that a Republican victory could weaken the country’s democratic institutions, while former President Donald Trump hinted he could make an “important announcement” as another attempt at a return to the White House on November 15.

Biden’s comments reflect the deep political divisions in the United States ahead of elections that could see Republicans gain control of one or both houses of Congress.

“Today we are at a critical point. We know our democracy is in jeopardy, and we know this is the moment to defend it,” Biden told a crowd at Bowie University outside of Washington, a historically black university.

Polling stations opened today in some US states on the East Coast as part of the midterm elections to Congress.

Polling stations on the East Coast began opening at 6 a.m.

As the race for control of the House and Senate rages on, more than 40 million people across the country cast their ballots during the early voting.

The 435 members of the House of Representatives and a third of the 35 members of the Senate are elected from 100 members.

Republicans need only win 6 additional seats in the House of Representatives and one additional seat in the Senate to earn a majority in Congress, at a time when observers believe these elections will have significant implications for the course of American power and future decisions .

Twenty seats in the congressional elections were classified as commuting between the two parties’ candidates while they awaited the ballot box’s decision.

Bipartisan observers expect Republicans to secure nearly 25 House seats, more than enough to win a majority. Analysts said Republicans could also get the only seat they needed to gain control of the Senate.

Republicans blame the Biden administration for higher prices and rising crime, two of voters’ top concerns. But dozens of candidates also repeated baseless allegations by Trump that cheating caused his defeat in the 2020 election. Some of them could end up as governors or election officials in key states and play central roles in the 2024 presidential campaign.

Trump has repeatedly hinted that he could run for president again. At a rally in support of Republican candidates in Ohio, Trump said he would post an ad at his Florida resort a week after the election.

“I will be making a very important announcement on Tuesday, November 15 at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida,” he said.

And despite campaign promises to boost infrastructure and clean energy, many Americans resented Biden’s leadership. Only 39% of Americans agree with his performance in the position, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released Monday.

Biden’s waning popularity has made him an unwelcome guest in the hard-fought race. He spoke Monday in Maryland, which is normally doomed in favor of Democrats, where it is widely expected that Democratic nominee for governor Wes Moore will regain the Republican-controlled position.

And if Republicans win the House or Senate, it would derail Biden’s efforts to keep abortion rights and other welfare benefits among congressional Democrats. It would also open the door to Republican-led investigations that could harm the White House. The Republican-led Senate can also block Biden’s nominations for judge or administrative posts.

And if Republicans win a majority in the House of Representatives, they plan to use the federal debt ceiling as leverage to demand deep spending cuts. They will also seek to make Trump’s 2017 individual tax cuts permanent and protect the corporate tax cuts that Democrats have unsuccessfully attempted for the past two years.

Control of Congress would also give Republicans the power to block aid to Ukraine, but they would slow or restrict the flow of arms and economic aid to Kyiv rather than stop it.
