Appeal to voters ahead of “midterms”: Biden sees democracy in America under threat

Appeal to voters before midterms
Biden sees democracy in America under threat

Elections for Congress are coming up in America. Following former President Trump’s example, some Republican candidates disagreed with the results. President Biden warns that with their vote, voters can affect “whether democracy is preserved or endangered.”

Six days before the US general election, US President Joe Biden warned of a growing threat to democracy in the US. He gave a ghostly call to voters to vote on November 8. “In a normal year, we don’t face the question of whether our vote protects or endangers democracy,” the US president said. “But this year we are.” Biden spoke at a Democratic campaign event in Washington.

Biden pointed out that next Tuesday’s election will be the first US election since violent supporters of former President Donald Trump stormed the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. “I wish I could say the attack on our democracy ended that day. But I can’t,” he said. In the upcoming US elections, candidates at all levels are running for office, “unwilling to commit themselves to accepting the results of the elections they vote for.”

Trump, Biden’s Republican predecessor, has refused to concede defeat in the 2020 presidential race. He continues to claim, without any evidence, that election fraud prevented him from winning. Following this example, individual Republicans running for mandates or offices in the Nov. 8 “midterm” elections are leaving open whether they will accept the election’s outcome either way.

All 435 seats in the House of Representatives and a third of the Senate are up for grabs in next week’s midterm elections in the United States. Governorship elections are also held in many states. Many other items have also been voted on.
