President Biden said in response to a Wall Street Journal question about the close race in Virginia as a rebuke to his presidency:
We are going to win. I think we will win in Virginia. And you know you’ve reported it being close, the race is a lot close. It’s about who shows up, who turns out. And granted, I won for one wide margin. But the point of the matter is which I think this is – this will be what we all do he knew from the start. This will be a squeeze race. And it’s tight. Get off at the turnout, and it is going – my guess is, I’m going land at 1:00 in east coast time in the morning, that’s it probably by the time we will be listening to what the final results are I’m. I think we will win New Jersey also.
But look, you know, the out of year is always unpredictable, especially when we have no general elections running at the same time. This was the case and down – for a long time, especially when Virginia turns around more and more blue. That said, I don’t I believe – and I have not seen anyone proof that whether I or not. I’m going good or bad if or not, I have outgrown my schedule or not – it will real impact on victory o lose.
This falls into the no-duh category of presidential remarks. What is Biden supposed to say? Not bothered to show up for a close election? Obviously Biden will say that the Democrats will win because the Democrats have a good chance of winning in Virginia.
President Biden had no intention of doing anything to depress Democratic turnout in Virginia, and he said all the right things to get people to the polls in the last few hours.
