Leaked Video Of Dem Candidate For Governor Is Very Bad News For Biden, ‘The President Is…
Democrat Terry McAuliffe is in a tight race for Governor of Virginia against Republican Glenn Youngkin.
It’s anyones guess who wins the election, there’s a question if Youngkin can overcome the amount of Democrat voters in the Virginia suburbs of DC. However, the fact that the race is so tight shows just how bad things have gotten for the Democrat party.
During a teleconference about the campaign McAuliffe admitted that Joe Biden “is unpopular today unfortunately here in Virginia.”
“We got to get Democrats out to vote,” McAuliffe said. “We are facing a lot of headwinds from Washington, as you know. The president is unpopular today, unfortunately here in Virginia, so we have got to plow through.”

Whoops! Nobody is supposed to admit that.
Recently Rachael Bade, a reporter for Politico, told ABC’s “This Week” that McAuliffe is “distancing himself” from Biden during the campaign. Bade pointed out that Youngkin attacked Joe Biden over his handling of Afghanistan during a debate and McAuliffe didn’t say a word to defend him. Instead, McAuliffe tried to play the moderate claiming that Biden’s Build Back Better price tag is “too high.”
The race is neck and neck but polls show that Youngkin is well within the margin of error.

What’s even more suspect is that this was a campaign call, meaning only authorized people have access to it. It must have been intentionally leaked by someone meaning they are continuing to distance themselves from Joe Biden.
Even if Yougkin loses by a point or two it’s still going to be a big blow for Biden. Trump lost Virginia to Biden by 10 points, that was just a year ago and now after nine months in office a Democrat like McAuliffe is hanging on by a shoe string.
Reports are that the White House is heavily invested and advising McAuliffe which may be a good thing because they mess up everything they get involved with.
“Virginia is the first high-stakes opportunity to test out the president’s agenda on voters, so the stakes are certainly elevated,” said Democratic strategist Joel Payne. “It goes without saying the outcome of Virginia is certainly very important to the president.”
One Democratic donor said that Biden’s needs the win because the White House needs some “damn momentum.” But, lets be clear if McAuliffe wins it will be because he was able to distance himself enough from Biden to sway a few voters.
Virginia-based elections analyst, Kyle Kondik believes that McAuliffe’s victory will hinge on Biden’s approval numbers.
Well, if that’s the case McAuliffe may not want to look at Biden latest approval ratings, they are terrible…
