The statement was released in the run-up to the US mid-term elections.
Sputnik – In a speech before the US midterm elections, US President Joe Biden said a Republican victory would weaken the country’s democratic institutions.
Political leaders from both the Democratic and Republican parties made their final arguments to the electorate. The US president has accused Republicans of capitalizing on political violence, while saying Republicans can better deal with America’s economic problems.
“Today we face a tipping point. We know our democracy is at risk, and we know it’s your time to protect it,” Biden said at a college in Washington.
The comments came ahead of the US midterm elections and reflect a deep political divide in the country, Reuters writes.
Pollsters predict Republicans will win about 25 seats in the House of Representatives, 435 seats, enough to secure a majority.
Republicans could win the only seat they need to take control of the Senate.
Republicans have blamed the Biden administration for inflation and crime, which are voters’ top concerns.
Dozens of candidates echoed former President Donald Trump’s baseless fraud allegations in his 2020 election loss. Some of them may be elected governors or members of Congress and play important roles in the 2024 presidential election.
To date, Biden’s leadership approval rating is only 39%, and his unpopularity has become a problem for Democrats.
More than 43 million Americans have already voted in person or by mail, according to the American Elections Project, which tracks early voting. Experts say it could take days or weeks for the result to be confirmed.
