Democratic leader says Biden must ‘stay to course’ despite bad poll numbers

House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) said during an interview on Monday that President Joe Biden must “stay the course” to improve his bad polling numbers as Democrats near the 2022 midterm elections.

Clyburn shared the remarks during an interview with Elaine Quijano on CBS’ “Red & Blue” about protecting voting rights.

“He has to stay the course. He is going through a rough patch like the country is. He’s going to come out of this on the other end in good shape, I think, provided that the people of goodwill in this society begin to speak up or stand up and speak out,” Clyburn said.

“If we don’t have a democracy, free enterprise system, every business in this country is going under and we will have one autocrat making the decisions for everybody. That is what I meant when I said that,” he added.

The focus on Martin Luther King Jr. Day on voting rights among Democrats was embraced by many King family members, but may shift the emphasis from civil rights to voting rights.

The voting reform measures led by Republicans in many states has been accused of being racist, but a look at the bills does not support the accusations.

Instead, Democrats continue to push a false narrative that Republic voting changes are racist and Democrat voting changes are not. Instead, the left’s voting rights bill would give the federal government more power than states when it comes to voting rights.

The interview may be accurate about one thing, though. Biden must work harder and do more if he hopes to improve his polling numbers and help his party in November.
