The Republican National Committee voted unanimously Thursday to “withdraw from the Commission on Presidential Debates,” with RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel asserting the commission “is biased,” according to Fox News.
As explained by Politico, “McDaniel emphasized that the RNC would not be withdrawing from debates altogether, but only those hosted by the commission.”
Such debates are two years out, but it is never too soon to discuss presidential politics. That is especially true now, in the wake of a new Quinnipiac University poll showing Joe Biden with the worst job approval rating he’s had back on Jan. 12, hitting a low of 33 percent both times. On the flip side, the new poll shows 54 percent disapproval, and there is something more.
The Quinnipiac poll also reveals how disconnected Democrats are from the rest of the country. According to Quinnipiac, Democrats approve of Biden 76-12 percent, while Republicans disapprove of him 94-3 percent and the important Independents disapprove 56-26 percent.
Also, the latest Rasmussen survey shows likely voters disapproving of Biden’s job performance, 58-40 percent, including 21 percent who “strongly approve” and 46 percent who “strongly disapprove.”
Following the 2020 debates, there were complaints about bias and this problem seems to remain, with McDaniel stating, “Debates are an important part of the democratic process, and the RNC is committed to free and fair debates…The Commission on Presidential Debates is biased and has refused to enact simple and commonsense reforms to help ensure fair debates including hosting debates before voting begins and selecting moderators who have never worked for candidates on the debate stage.”
Back in January, Politico recalled, McDaniel sent a letter to the Commission in which she wrote, “The RNC has a duty to ensure that its future presidential nominees have the opportunity to debate their opponents on a level playing field… The RNC will take every step to ensure that future Republican presidential nominees are given that opportunity elsewhere.”
The Hill is reporting that McDaniel’s announcement also said Republicans would “find newer, better debate platforms to ensure that future nominees are not forced to go through the biased CPD in order to make their case to the American people.”
