Republicans, focus midterms on Biden errors and don't say anything stupid

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

It’s finally September, and that means we are about to hit the fourth quarter of our midterm election season. Labor Day marks the traditional beginning of the period when it actually matters what candidates do and say. Everyone is paying attention now and every news cycle counts. For months, the “experts” in Washington, D.C., predicted a red wave for Republicans in November but now the very same “experts” are having second thoughts. 

In March, the Wall Street Journal’s generic ballot poll – conducted by Trump pollster and my friend Tony Fabrizio – showed Republicans ahead five points. Last week, the same poll had Democrats up three. A staggering political shift in just six months. 

Let me be clear. President Joe Biden is NOT responsible for his party’s shifting fortunes. The midterms are no longer a referendum on his thin record. Instead, we now have a choice election with a GOP brand that has seen much better days.

President Biden’s approval ratings may have ticked up slightly, but two-thirds of Americans still say the nation is on the wrong track.
