US Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has announced President Biden's dropping poll numbers, particularly among younger people, is a true cause for concern as the Midterm elections edge closer. The progressive Democrat who represents Queens and The Bronx in Congress announced that she thinks the president is risking the complete "collapse" of his backing among fellow progressives and young would-be Democratic voters.

"We need to acknowledge that this isn't just about the middle of the road, an increasingly narrow band of independent voters," Ocasio-Cortez told NY1. "But, this is really about the collapse of support among young people, among Democratic base, feeling like they worked overtime to get this president elected and they aren't necessarily being seen," she stated. Ocasio-Cortez announced she worries that low polling numbers will see the Democrats hit during November’s congressional elections but thinks Biden could yet turn things around with some obvious concessions. "It is Biden's power and ability to cancel student debt, and nobody else's." While on the campaign trail, Biden vowed to chop off $10,000 from every college student's debt. It is a promise that stays unfulfilled.

"We do not have much more time to wait because of these falling poll numbers, I don't believe in governing by polling." The Progressive Caucus - led by Rep. Pramila Jayapal and consisting of high-profile liberals like Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Ilhan Omar thinks that solid support from young people and progressives could be reignited if Biden chooses to follow through with his "promise" on student debt, which she insists would be pushed through through executive action. The canceling of student debt, is one of a number of items on Biden's agenda that have grown stalled in the Senate after moderate Senator Joe Manchin announced he could not vote for Biden's signature Build Back Better package of social programs, effectively killing the measure. [tweet_embed] March 27, 2022[/tweet_embed] Biden had urged Congress to pass legislation - in order to codify the items into law. With executive action, another president can undo what he orders, just as Biden reserved several of Donald Trump's orders. Executive orders can also be overturned by the courts. The progressive caucus, a 98-member strong body, has expressed frustration with the lack of legislative process and now wants action.
