Will the economy cause the Dems to feel voters' wrath in the midterms?

Politico's latest article is warning in the affirmative, even though much of it is due to global factors beyond the federal government's control. What do you think the Dems should do, or is there any way out of a mess that is layers deep the world over?

The professionals who track American attitudes toward the economy say they can see the trouble coming.

Angry voters slammed by higher prices and scarred by two years of fighting the pandemic are poised to punish Democrats in midterm elections, according to some of the leading experts in consumer sentiment and behavior. And with inflation persisting and Russia’s war on Ukraine stoking uncertainty, there are indications that public sentiment is getting worse, not better, posing a growing threat to Democrats’ already slim chances of holding onto Congress, they say.

The widely watched University of Michigan consumer confidence survey recently touched its lowest level in almost 11 years. An Associated Press/NORC survey showed that almost 70 percent of Americans think the economy is in poor shape, and 81 percent of those in a poll released by CNBC see a recession coming this year. Gallup found the share of Americans citing inflation as the top issue is now at its highest level since the 1980s.

Inside the West Wing, Biden and his top advisers know that the window to change the economic narrative through executive action is rapidly closing, according to a senior Biden aide and an outside adviser. The options, they say, mostly include whatever can be done to ease oil prices, the biggest drag on the party right now. But even that could have only limited impact.

A curious phenomenon about France's close election race

In America, it's common to hear Dems urging young people to get out and vote because, demographically, they tend to be majority left-leaning.

In France, polling is showing the opposite, with seniors more supportive of incumbent left-winger Emmanuel Macron, while younger voters throwing their weight behind right-winger Marie LePen.

It's a very close race overall. Here's hoping Macron can pull it off.
