Voting for the midterm elections in the United States begins today. The results of the midterm elections will determine exactly how popular President Joe Biden is with voters. This election will prove whether Biden will be able to easily make a decision in the future or will face obstacles from the Republicans.

Americans cast final ballots on Tuesday in the US midterm elections that will determine whether Democrats lose control of Congress, Reuters reports. In addition, the ability of President Biden to advance his agenda for the next two years will also depend on it.

The party that controls the White House usually loses seats in midterm elections. Considering that aspect and considering the current high inflation in the country, increase in crime and the announcement of abolition of women’s right to abortion, the incident on Capitol Hill on January 6, 2021, one thing is clear, the chances of the party controlling the White House breaking the previous record and winning the elections are very slim.

The results of this election will also tell whether former President Donald Trump can become an important person in US politics again. BBC has published a simple lesson on how this election is conducted, which issues can become decisive in this election.

BBC analysis says that since the majority of seats in the House of Representatives and the Senate have been occupied by the Democratic Party for the past two years, President Joe Biden has always been in an advantageous position in any legislation. But that power now depends on the outcome of the midterm elections. Analysts believe that this year’s election can be relatively competitive. At least that’s what polls say.

Also, there is a glimpse that the Republicans will take over the total 435 seats in the House of Representatives. Out of the 35 seats up for election in the Senate, Nevada, Arizona, Georgia and Pennsylvania seem to be the only four that are in real competition.

Midterm elections have a major impact on US presidential elections. Because this mid-term election is a means of checking the popularity of the President of the United States. A major concern for Biden in this midterm election is the ebb and flow of his popularity. His popularity rating among voters has been hovering below 50 percent since last August.

If the Democrats win a majority in both chambers, President Biden will be able to advance his plans to tighten climate change, government health care programs, abortion rights and gun control laws. And if the opposite happens, he will lose that power.
