Fears of a Republican landslide in the midterm elections have made the chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) vulnerable and he is considering leaving, according to reports, as President Biden’s favor ratings sink, Fox News informed.
DNC Chairman Jaime Harrison committed to serving his four-year tenure in an interview with NBC News, stating that he “made a promise to be president.”
However, a report quoting former and present DNC insiders indicated a tense relationship between Harrison and the White House, as well as doubts about his ability to stay president ahead of the midterm elections, which political commentators have predicted, will be disastrous for Democrats.
Biden’s approval rating has continued to fall in polls, with 41.8 percent approval and 52.9 percent disapproval, according to the most recent aggregation from pollster 538.
Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman and Attorney General Josh Shapiro, both prominent Pennsylvania Democrats, refused to participate in a picture session with Biden during his trip to the state this week.
The two cited scheduling issues, which some experts thought was surprising, especially given that both men are looking for new roles this year.
Harrison has been “marginalized,” according to a former DNC official because he is “not fighting the fight.”
It is still unknown “whether he will leave before the curtain comes down in November,” since staying in his seat would make him the primary target if the GOP were to flip both the House and the Senate.
