In view of the midterm elections – half of the presidential term – the temperature of political conflict in the United States is rising. Tuesday, November 8, citizens will go to the polls for the renewal of the House of Representatives and a third of the senators. In addition to choosing 36 governors out of 50.

President Joe Biden has reiterated the message that democracy is at stake in the midterm elections. “I want to be very clear – he said at a Democratic event – it’s not about me, it’s about all of us. It’s about what makes up America, it’s about of our democracy. Because democracies are more than a form of government.” “It is a way of being – he added – a way of seeing the world, a way that defines who we are, what we believe in, why we do what we do. Democracy is the basis. We must look within and recognize that we must no longer take democracy for granted. It’s imperfect. It always has been. But we are all called to defend it now. »

Biden then pointed the finger at Republican opponents. “It is estimated – he said – that there are more than 300 Holocaust deniers in the elections this year across the United States. We cannot ignore the impact this can have on our country. It is harmful. It is corrosive and destructive”. The US President then reiterated that “America must stand against political violence and voter intimidation”. The upcoming midterm polls will be the “first national election since the events of January 6, 2021. When angry armed mobs stormed the United States Capitol. I wish I could say that the assault on our democracy ended that day. But I can’t,” he added.

In the medium term, “risk of chaos”

But Biden, leader of the Democrats, also warned of the risk that the refusal of Republican candidates to recognize the result of next Tuesday’s election could lead “America into chaos”. And he adds: “There are candidates at all levels who will not accept the election results. This is the road that leads America to chaos”. “It’s unprecedented – added Biden – It’s illegal. And it’s anti-American. I’ve said it before, you can’t love your country only when you win.” Five days after the midterm vote, the electoral platform is intensifying to motivate Democrats to go to the polls. Because the serious risk is that the Republicans win. And for Joe Biden it would be the antechamber to Donald Trump’s return to the stage. A worrying signal for him in the perspective of a possible re-appointment of the tycoon in the presidential elections of 2024.
