“It’s not about me, it’s about us, about what makes America America”: Six days before the midterm elections, American President Joe Biden addressed the voters in a solemn tone on Wednesday, November 2nd and warned them Voter Candidates ready to reject voting result. “It’s unprecedented, illegal and anti-American” and make sure it “paves the way to chaos.” “Make no mistake, democracy is at stake in these elections,” he stressed again before the National Democratic Committee.

He lamented that Trump’s false claims about the results of the 2020 presidential election had “fueled the dangerous rise in political violence and voter intimidation over the past two years.”

He particularly deplored the attack on the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and deplored the “alarming increase in the number of people in this country who condone this violence” or “just remain silent.” “To remain silent is to be complicit,” he warned.

In the November 8 election, Americans will be asked to replace all 435 seats in the US House of Representatives and a third of the Senate. Both chambers currently have a democratic majority. A whole host of governorships and locally elected officials are also at stake.

“There are candidates at every level of power in America, for governor, for congress, for attorney general, for secretary of state, who don’t commit to accepting the results of the elections they vote in,” worried President Biden.

This is particularly true of Kari Lake in Arizona, the hotly contested state’s gubernatorial candidate whose meteoric rise is of particular concern to the Democrat camp. The Republican continues to denounce the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, asserting that the election was stolen from Donald Trump despite ample evidence to the contrary. “I’m going to win the election, that’s the result I’m going to accept,” this fifty-year-old threatened at the CNN microphone.

First national election since the storming of the Capitol

Joe Biden notably condemned the “Ultra-MAGA” Republicans – a reference to Mr Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan – calling them a minority but the “powerhouse” of the Republican Party. They are “trying to succeed where they failed in 2020, which is to suppress voter rights and subvert the electoral system itself,” he warned.

The record number of candidates denying Joe Biden’s election, misinformation shared on social media, and the country’s deep political divisions have led authorities to fear violence on the sidelines of the November 8 election. Some election officials and elected officials have already said they have noticed an increase in threats and intimidation. America must oppose “political violence and voter intimidation,” Joe Biden reiterated. “We can no longer take democracy for granted,” he continued.

The midterm elections are the first nationwide poll Americans have participated in since supporters of Donald Trump attacked the seat of Congress in utter chaos on Jan. 6, 2021. “I wish I could say that the attack on our democracy ended that day. But I can’t,” said Joe Biden, who is somehow trying to keep the debate focused on the issue as Republicans attack him for his economic record.

The weight of inflation

Former President Donald Trump, who never admitted losing the 2020 presidential election, appears to be preparing to contest the outcome of the midterm elections should they turn out unfavorable to Republicans. “Here we go again! Election rigging! “, the omnipresent billionaire in the campaign said on his social network Truth Social on Tuesday without any evidence.

The Republicans accuse the Democratic President of “cruel” inflation management and are increasingly confident of depriving him of his majority in Congress. According to many polling institutes, the rising cost of living and economic problems are at the top of voters’ concerns. Abortion rights, for which Democrats have been trying to mobilize their base, are being sidelined. According to the latest opinion polls, the Republican opposition has a very good chance of taking over the chamber. The fate of the Senate remains uncertain.
