Democrats seem to be distancing themselves from Biden during an upcoming special election in New Hampshire where they reportedly removed the President’s logo from a sweatshirt the candidate was wearing to promote him for office.
The before picture has candidate Andrew Maneval posing in fall foliage from October last year in a sweatshirt with the Biden-Harris logo emblazed on it. For the new and improved pic on the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) site, the Biden brand is glaringly scrubbed from his photo according to the NHJournal.
The DLCC touts Mandeval as “a community leader, small business owner, and former chair of the Harrisville Broadband Committee.” Normally, any connection to a sitting president would be used however tenuous to help get a Democrat elected. But with Biden’s plummeting poll numbers and numerous catastrophes, candidates are shying away from associating with the President.
Biden beat former President Trump in four towns in Mandeval’s district by 27 percent of the vote in the presidential election. But even local polls in heavily blue areas show that Biden’s influence is not what it once was by any means.
NH Democrats are all in with the @DVCC2022 to keep this momentum going and we’re more fired up than ever before to elect Andrew Maneval next month!

“Independents have shown the greatest variation in their opinions of how Biden is doing. Biden’s current 37% approval rating among independents is his lowest to date and 24 points below his personal high of 61%,” author Megan Brenan noted.
“Among elected presidents since World War II, only Trump has had a lower job approval rating than Biden does at a similar point in their presidencies,” she added.

The poll noted that “Biden’s latest approval rating further cements the fact that the honeymoon phase of his presidency is behind him. Political independents, who were part of the coalition that helped him defeat Trump in 2020, now largely disapprove of the job he is doing as president.”
Biden is increasingly disliked not only by Republicans but by a majority of Independents and he’s not even through the first year of his term. This ostensibly stems from numerous catastrophic missteps such as the bloody withdrawal from Afghanistan that left 13 service members dead and Americans trapped behind enemy lines. France pulled her ambassador after the US made a deal with Australia and the UK over nuclear submarines cutting them out of the agreement. The border is exploding with more than 15,000 illegal Haitian immigrants and the pandemic is resurging as well. There are many other issues that are also blowing up all around Biden currently.
The DLCC is responsible for the alteration to Maneval’s photo. They dump tens of thousands of dollars into each special election so the move had to be thoroughly considered before it was done. However, they won’t comment on it evidently.
“It is clear that like the Democrats running before him, Andrew Maneval will be fully dependent on money from Washington, D.C. to try and buy this election,” Rep. Ross Berry, vice chairman of the Committee to Elect House Republicans, stated. “But the question must be asked, why are D.C. Democrats de-Bidening him?
“Are they afraid that Cheshire County voters will learn the truth – that Maneval will be a puppet for the Biden agenda in Concord? If President Biden is so popular in New Hampshire, why go out of the way to hide it from the voters? If Mr. Maneval is such a proud Biden supporter, then he should immediately demand that the DLCC stop photoshopping him or reject the tens of thousands of dollars they will surely spend to prop up his campaign,” Berry asserted.
A poll from the Saint Anselm College Survey Center at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics showed Biden‘s approval rating among more than 1,855 registered voters in the stated slipped to 44 percent who approve of his performance and 55 percent who disapprove. That is a net 8-point drop since February according to the Washington Times.
Biden’s job approval is collapsing in New Hampshire, putting Democratic incumbents in jeopardy. His job approval has inverted and now sits at 44%-55%,

“The 2022 cycle is shaping up as quite dynamic as political cross-currents on issues from inflation to COVID to government spending to energy to Afghanistan present serious challenges for incumbents to negotiate,” said Neil Levesque, who is the executive director of the New Hampshire Institute of Politics. “Control of Congress is a stake, and the races here in New Hampshire may play as important a role in determining who wields the gavel in both chambers as any state.”
