Jen Psaki Takes Swipe At Biden, Says If Midterms Are ‘Referendum’ On Joe Dems ‘Will Lose’

President Joe Biden’s former press secretary came clean on NBC and admitted the Democrats are doomed in the 2022 midterms if the election is a “referendum” on Biden’s first two years in office.

Appearing on Meet the Press Sunday, NBC News contributor Jen Psaki admitted crime is a huge weak spot for the Democrats who have inexplicably doubled down on their disastrous policies.

In Illinois, they passed a new law abolishing cash bail and while the proponents say violent criminals will not be let out to roam free and terrorize law-abiding citizens, they said the same thing when Chicago instituted bail reform which turned out to be a total disaster.

Psaki said:

“I think that Democrats, if the election is about who is the most extreme, then they’re going to win.

“If it is a referendum on the president, they will lose.

“And they know that.

“Crime is a huge vulnerability for Democrats.

“I would say one of the biggest vulnerabilities. 

“And if you look at Pennsylvania, for example, what’s been interesting to me is it’s always you follow the money, and where people spending money. 

“And in Pennsylvania, the Republicans have been spending millions of dollars on the air on crime ads against  Fetterman because that’s where they see his vulnerability. 

“So, yes, the economy is hanging over everything. 

“But you do have to look at state by state factors. 

“And crime is a huge issue in the Pennsylvania race,” she said.

By the way, are you concerned about Democratic big money?

We did an analysis that showed basically, because Mike Bloomberg and Tom Steyer don’t want to be president, you’re missing about $50 million in big super PAC money. That’s a big gap.


It’s true. What I will say that’s the good news for the long term is that where they’re spending money is on state and local races, something that Democrats and big-money Democrats have not done for a long time.

The disadvantage, though, on super PACs Republicans have — even though they throw a lot more money there — is that the ad costs are higher and there’s only limited ad space available.

And by law, campaigns get preference over super PACs for ad time.
