Washington Examiner chief political correspondent Byron York explained Monday that President Joe Biden’s job approval rating does not bode well for the Democratic Party’s chances in the midterm elections.

“He is a drag on his party. There is no doubt about it,” York said on Fox Business’s The Evening Edit.

“The latest poll we have just seen has President Biden’s job approval at 39%,” he said. “The analysis that accompanies this ABC-Washington Post poll noted the historical fact that since 1946, presidents who had a job approval above 50% still tended to lose about 14 seats on average.”

“Those below 50% — and remember Joe Biden is far below 50% — lost as many as 37 seats,” York continued. “Presidents with a job approval rating like Biden’s right now simply do not win seats in the midterm.”

He concluded the segment by stating, “There is absolutely no doubt that inflation is the most important issue to the most voters right now.”
