Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki reminded Democrats their “fate” during November’s midterm elections is linked to President Joe Biden’s poll numbers.

Democrats do not have to agree, though they should be proud of what the party has accomplished together before the midterm cycle, according to Psaki.

“In politics, it is never good when the person who is at the head of your party is not in ... good poll numbers,” Psaki said Wednesday. “So, people should think about how to support that and advocate for the agenda and the policies that that person is advocating for.”

She added: “Remember that sometimes, your fate is going to go with where his poll numbers are.”

Psaki made the remarks during a University of Chicago Institute of Politics event hosted by fellow Obama Administration alum David Axelrod, her first public appearance after leaving the White House last week.

She realized, too, that history is against Democrats this fall, considering the party’s coalesced control of Washington. Before then, she encouraged lawmakers and candidates to highlight the contrast between them and Republicans.

“Everybody agrees inflation is a problem,” she said. “Start talking about what you’re going to do about it.”

During the wide-ranging moderator conversation and discussion with students, she covered her relationship with Fox News to the worst question she fielded in her briefings. She also found herself in an awkward exchange with a freshman who needled her on her response to the Supreme Court justice’s home demonstrations.

“Do you regret encouraging people to protest outside of justices’ homes? Even if it is peaceful, it still is a federal crime,” the student said.

She replied: “I never encouraged anyone to protest. I encouraged them to engage peacefully, and to do it without violence, without threats, and without intimidation.”

Georgia has continued to break early voting records this election cycle despite an uproar over its election reform law last year that critics denounced as voter suppression.

In total, over 539,297 ballots have been cast from the start of the primary through Tuesday, marking a 196% increase from the same time period during the 2018 primary election and a 156% increase from the 2020 primary, according to the office of the Georgia secretary of state.

“The record early voting turnout is a testament to the security of the voting system and the hard work of our county election officials,” Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said. “As Secretary of State, I promised to strike a strong balance between access and security in our elections, and these numbers demonstrate that I kept that promise and that voters have confidence in Georgia’s elections.”
