sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., said Sunday that the mid-term victories belonged to President Biden, adding that he put candidates in a position to talk about what Democrats are fighting for.
NBC’s “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd asked Warren if she was concerned the Democrats might not be able to beat “normal Republicans” after noting that NBC exit polls showed Republicans preferred on every topic, except abortion.
“I’m not too worried,” Warren said. “Donald Trump, with his smoothing over and his selection of truly awful candidates has done his party no favors, but this victory belongs to Joe Biden. It belongs to Joe Biden and the Democrats who came out and fought for working people. did were important and popular.”
Warren praised the Inflation Reduction Act, saying Biden was positioning Democrats to “talk about what Democrats are fighting for.”

“The President’s leadership has put us in a position, every candidate, on the ballot, to talk about what the Democrats are fighting for and what we’re delivering. And in doing that, we were able to enhance the values and economic security of people around the world.” this country. And it certainly paid off. It has paid off on historical levels,” Warren said.
But experts have noted how often Biden seems to have been knocked out in this year’s midterm races. CNN Capitol Hill reporter Melanie Zanona suggested on Sunday during CNN’s “Inside Politics” that the Democrats could win “despite Joe Biden” and not because of him.
“I mean, you see Biden, he was on the campaign trail in a lot of the major races, he didn’t do big campaigns, he wasn’t central and that seemed to help the Democrats,” she said.
At a news conference on Wednesday, Biden was asked what he might say to two-thirds of Americans who don’t want him to run for re-election in 2024.

“Look at me,” the president told reporters.
Warren was also asked about Biden’s student loan forgiveness plans and whether she would legislate his plan if it got help in court.
“I’d love to capture what the president is doing, but here’s the key. I have no doubt that the president has the legal authority to waive student debt. President Trump did it. President Obama did it, and President Biden is now done with paying single student debt, but we have a court in Texas, and if they play politics instead of following the law, they jeopardize the program,” she said.

“The View” co-host Sunny Hostin also declared Biden the real winner after the midterm elections.
“He’s had significant wins in infrastructure, in terms of the economy, so the coverage has to change. And I think that’s a pretty big takeaway from the midterm elections, because Biden actually lost fewer seats than any president. also in a decade. That’s saying something, that’s saying something, and I think it’s an important takeaway,” Hostin said Wednesday.
