Joe Biden’s former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has admitted the Democrats are doomed in the 2022 midterms if the elections are a “referendum” on the president’s first two years in office.
Psaki, now an NBC News contributor, made the remark while appearing on “Meet the Press” Sunday.
She confessed that crime is a huge weak spot for the Democrats who have inexplicably doubled down on their failing policies.
“I think that Democrats, if the election is about who is the most extreme, then they’re going to win,” Psaki said.
“If it is a referendum on the president, they will lose.
“And they know that.
“Crime is a huge vulnerability for Democrats.
“I would say one of the biggest vulnerabilities.
“And if you look at Pennsylvania, for example, what’s been interesting to me is it’s always you follow the money, and where people spending money.
“And in Pennsylvania, the Republicans have been spending millions of dollars on the air on crime ads against Fetterman because that’s where they see his vulnerability.
“So, yes, the economy is hanging over everything,” she said.
“But you do have to look at state-by-state factors.
“And crime is a huge issue in the Pennsylvania race.”

From the transcript:
“By the way, are you concerned about Democratic big money?
“We did an analysis that showed basically, because Mike Bloomberg and Tom Steyer don’t want to be president, you’re missing about $50 million in big super PAC money. That’s a big gap.”
“It’s true. What I will say that’s the good news for the long term is that where they’re spending money is on state and local races, something that Democrats and big-money Democrats have not done for a long time.
“The disadvantage, though, on super PACs Republicans have — even though they throw a lot more money there — is that the ad costs are higher and there’s only limited ad space available.
“And by law, campaigns get preference over super PACs for ad time.”
