Judge Jeanine Pirro has stated that two main factors helped the Democrats avoid having a “red wave” materialize. Firstly, President Biden’s student loan handout and secondly, abortion.
On Monday on “The Five” Pirro said that the student loan forgiveness was a “buyout” to get young people to vote in the midterm elections. She also added that in the end “it was all about abortion.”
According to many legal observers, the student loan forgiveness program proposed by President Biden would be blocked by the courts, but still, it was enough to make 18-24-year-olds vote for the Democrats.
President Biden offered up something many legal observers believed would eventually be struck down by the courts, but the student loan handout seemed enough to bring out the 18-24 vote to put Democrats over the top, the panel on “The Five” debated.
Pirro added that pairing that with the overturning of Roe v. Wade which had previously protected abortion rights in all states, the Republicans had to deal with an “uphill battle”
in order to do well in the elections.
Pirro also added that the Supreme Court’s Dobbs ruling had nothing to do with the President and yet, for many independents and Democrats the Republicans’ celebration of the right to life was not a positive thing. Finally, she concluded that the Democrats would use these reelections to bring forth two of the most progressive years that America has ever seen.
