“It’s unprecedented, illegal, and anti-American”: Six days before the midterm elections, US President Joe Biden on Wednesday warned candidates ready to refuse the results of the vote, assuring that this “opens the way to chaos. “We can no longer take democracy for granted,” the Democratic leader warned, gravely, two months after a similar speech in Philadelphia.

President Biden was speaking a stone’s throw from the Capitol, the seat of the American Congress that supporters of Donald Trump, convinced of his victory in the 2020 election, had attacked in an unnamed chaos, on January 6, 2021.

“I wish I could say the assault on our democracy ended that day. But I can’t,” said Joe Biden, who says 300 candidates are prepared to withhold voting results in the Nov. 8 election, the first ballot held nationwide since that attack. “There are candidates who are running at all levels of the American administration (…) who refuse to commit to accepting the results of the elections in which they are candidates”, alerted the tenant of the White House, taking care to emphasize that the partisans of the “big lie”, the big lie, represented only a “minority” of the republican party.


During this election, the Americans are called upon to renew all the seats in the American House of Representatives and one third of the Senate. A host of gubernatorial and local elected positions are also at stake. democrats.

The Republican continues to denounce the result of the 2020 presidential election, assuring that the election was stolen from Donald Trump, despite countless evidence to the contrary. This 50-year-old also threatens not to recognize the result of her own ballot. “I will win the election, this is the result that I will accept,” the candidate told CNN. And far-right candidate Mark Finchem, a member of the Oath Keepers militia, could well become Arizona’s next secretary of state, in charge of organizing and verifying the ballot.

Former President Donald Trump, who never admitted his defeat in the 2020 presidential election, also seems to be preparing to challenge the result of the “midterms”, if they were to be unfavorable to the Republicans. “This paves the way for chaos in America”, hammered Joe Biden, also calling on the country to oppose “political violence and voter intimidation”.

Assault on Nancy Pelosi’s husband

The president took as an example the case of Paul Pelosi, the husband of Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, who was attacked with a hammer at his home on Friday morning. The assailant indicated that he was actually looking for the American leader. Some electoral officials and elected officials also said they had noticed an increase in threats and intimidation.

The people propagating these theories are “determined, and manage to be heard”, warned Joe Biden, who tries somehow to focus the debate around the protection of democracy, when the Republicans attack him on his record economic.

Accusing the Democratic president of a “cruel” management of inflation, the Republicans are showing more and more confidence in their chances of depriving him of his majorities in Congress. However, according to a Quinnipiac University poll published on Wednesday, 36% of Americans believe that inflation is the most “urgent” issue facing the country.

Abortion rights, around which the Democrats have tried to mobilize their base, comes in second place, at only 10%. The elections are at 6%. According to the most recent opinion polls, the Republican opposition has a very good chance of taking over the Chamber. The fate of the Senate remains more uncertain.
