    The Facts

    • Democrats gathered in Washington, DC late last week to take stock and strategize for the upcoming midterm elections.

    • The focus of their discussions was how to highlight President Biden's legislative accomplishments.


    The Spin

    Left narrative

    Biden has succeeded in lifting people out of poverty, boosting employment, and reducing home foreclosures under challenging global circumstances. Dems need to focus on messaging to inform the American people of these achievements.

    Right narrative

    The Dems are portraying an extremely selective narrative. The American Rescue Plan Act was not a political success but a spending bill typical of the irresponsible economic responses common under Biden, even despite rising inflation.

    Nerd narrative

    The Metaculus Community predicts there is a 71% chance the GOP will control the senate in 2023.
