Despite the fact that neither Biden nor Trump are present on the ballot next Tuesday during the midterm elections, however, the outcome will determine how much Biden can accomplish in the second half of his term as well as how the government can respond to escalating recession risks. Additionally, it will serve as a crucial indicator of the Republican Party's state and whether Donald Trump will challenge Biden in 2024.
During the Iowa rally, Trump stated that he ran twice for presidency and "won twice": "I won twice and did much better the second time than I did the first, getting millions more votes in 2020 than I got in 2016," said Trump, adding, "now in order to make our country successful, and safe and glorious. I will very, very, very probably do it again."

Since last August, Biden's voter approval rating has been hovering below 50%. He will be able to carry out his alleged plans on climate change, expanding government-run healthcare programs, defending abortion rights, and tightening gun control if Democrats manage to hold onto power in Congress. However, if either chamber is taken over by a Republican majority, they will be able to effectively grind that agenda to a halt.
Earlier in October, the investigation committee looking into the US Capitol attack in 2021 subpoenaed former President Donald Trump, effectively ordering that he testify about his involvement in the riot violence. This move poses an escalation in the inquiry. The House panel of 7 Democrats and 2 Republicans voted unanimously to compel Trump's appearance before investigators.
