Two years after the election of President Joe Biden, Americans will go to the polls again on Tuesday. In the midterms, they elect the members of the House of Representatives and part of the Senate. The Democrats hope to retain their narrow majority, but that is far from certain.

According to the latest polls, only 39 percent of Americans support president Biden’s policies. That is why the Democrats fear that the Republicans will win more seats and thus also the majority in the House of Representatives and the Senate.

That would be a big hit for Biden, who needs a majority to be able to carry out his plans. He appealed to American voters on Monday.

“We know deep down that our democracy is in danger and we know that this is your time to defend it,” he told a cheering crowd at a university just outside Washington.

Republicans are expected to win 25 more seats in the 435-seat House of Representatives. Democrats now have 235 seats and Republicans 199. With 25 additional seats, they will take over the majority of the Democrats.

Analysts also predict that Republicans will make a profit in the Senate. They only need one additional seat for a majority.

The midterms may also show how much influence former president Donald Trump still has. This is how the candidates who supported Trump are doing it. Rumor has it that he will make another run for the presidency in 2024. Trump said during a speech in Ohio on Monday night that he will make a “big announcement” on November 15.
