According to a recent poll, ahead of the midterms, President Joe Biden’s approval ratings have risen. This rebound, weeks before the midterms, is a welcome sign for the Democrats as they fight to retain the House and to get a majority in the Senate, where the seats are tied at 50-50. The polls were conducted by the Associated Press with NORC Center for Public Affairs Research (AP-NORC).

As the midterms approach, the Republicans are pushing the narrative of a weak economy, inflation woes and more to take over the House and the Senate. However, the Democrats are slowly gaining with robust number of jobs, the recent upheaval due to the Supreme Court verdict on Roe vs Wade, which is having far reaching consequences on abortion rights as well the passing of the Inflation Reduction Act.

A few months earlier, the Democrats were facing a tough battle as gas prices hit unprecedented highs and inflation also rose to historic levels. However, gas prices are much lower and the Democrats have increased their support for Biden and his ratings currently stand higher at 65 percent, when compared with a 39 percent low, in July.

Biden has also been claiming that former president Trump is a threat to democracy and the recent haul of classified documents from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home have helped build thus narrative.

On Thursday, President Biden also announced that a tentative deal had been reached by the railways and unions. This is also a positive move that averted strikes as well as cancellation of trains and services that would have put the economy into further financial peril.

President Joe Biden had said, “Don’t compare me to the Almighty. Compare me to the alternative.” Most of the Democrats are slowing rallying around their president and it remains to be seen if they come and vote for their party, if they believe in the above statement.

About 46 percent of the Democrats are positive that the nation is moving in the right direction. Only 39 percent of the Republicans say that they believe that the nation is moving in the right direction.

The Democrats require a majority in both the House and the Senate as many bills did not pass or were watered down due to lack of bipartisan support in the past two years as the Biden administration didn’t have the numbers to push through the original bills.
