Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said on Sunday that Democrats will likely experience a “good beating” during the midterms as a consequence of President Joe Biden’s failures in office.
McConnell shared the remarks on “Fox News Sunday” in a discussion of his party’s confidence regarding the upcoming midterm elections.

“His policies have not worked, beginning with the precipitous and ill-advised withdrawal from Afghanistan, which became kind of a metaphor for the incompetence that’s been on full display during this administration. None of the policies they have pursued have worked out well,” McConnell said.
“The economy, the precipitous withdrawal from Afghanistan, the domestic energy issue we’ve already been discussing, crime, problems in public education – this administration has really got their hands full, and I think they’re headed toward a pretty good beating in the fall election,” he added.
McConnell also emphasized that a Republican majority in the House and Senate would force Biden to lead as a moderate.
“If I’m the majority leader in the Senate and Kevin McCarthy is the speaker in the House, we’ll make sure Joe Biden is a moderate,” he said.
The predictions are still early but indicate what to expect from conservatives if things go their way at the ballot box.
