Democrats are scrambling for a message to break through to voters as the days tick down to the midterm elections and President Biden’s approval rating remains mired at around 40 percent.

They got a wake-up call in last year’s state-level races in New Jersey and Virginia, two bellwether states that signaled a coming Republican tidal wave in the 2010 midterm elections, when then-President Obama was also struggling with a low approval rating.

Yet months after losing the Virginia governor’s race, and almost losing New Jersey’s, the political picture for Democrats hasn’t gotten better. Instead, Biden’s numbers have gotten worse.

“The political environment as indicated or revealed by Biden’s approval is basically the same or worse than it was five months ago,” said Kyle Kondik, an analyst at the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics. Kondik pointed out that Biden’s average approval rating in November stood at 43 percent and has since dipped closer to 40 percent.

“Democrats really need Biden’s numbers to get better. You’re sort of running out of time for that to happen,” he said.
