But the prospect of Don Bolduc winning Tuesday's GOP Senate primary has dampened those ambitions. In a state that President Joe Biden carried by more than 7 percentage points, Bolduc has campaigned on a platform that includes lies that Donald Trump won the 2020 election and conspiracy theories about vaccines.That underscores the sense of disappointment among some national Republicans that Gov.

Biden's statements come after an NBC poll pointed to an increase in voting intentions for the Democrats before the mid-term elections, scheduled for early November.

This data, according to the poll, would be related to the Supreme Court's decision to suspend the constitutional right to abortion, known as the 'Roe v. Wade' case. However, the Republican Party continues to have an advantage for the elections.

In fact, around 63 percent of voters believe that their incomes are becoming less and less sufficient in the face of the rising cost of living, while 58 percent also criticize President Biden's economic management.
