Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki reminded Democrats their "fate" during November's midterm elections is tied to President Joe Biden's poll numbers.
Democrats do not have to agree, but they should be proud of what the party has achieved together before the midterm cycle, according to Psaki.
FOUR THINGS TO WATCH FOR DURING BIDEN'S FIRST ASIA TRIP
"In politics, it is never good when the person who is at the head of your party is not in ... good poll numbers," Psaki said Wednesday. "So, people should think about how to support that and advocate for the agenda and the policies that that person is advocating for."
She added: "Remember that sometimes, your fate is going to go with where his poll numbers are."
Psaki made the comments during a University of Chicago Institute of Politics event hosted by fellow Obama administration alum David Axelrod, her first public appearance after leaving the White House last week.
She acknowledged, too, that history is against Democrats this fall, considering the party's unified control of Washington. Before then, she urged lawmakers and candidates to underscore the contrast between them and Republicans.
"Everybody agrees inflation is a problem," she said. "Start talking about what you're going to do about it."
During the wide-ranging moderator conversation and discussion with students, she covered her relationship with Fox News to the worst question she fielded in her briefings. She also found herself in an awkward exchange with a freshman who needled her on her response to the Supreme Court justice home demonstrations.
"Do you regret encouraging people to protest outside of justices' homes? Even if it is peaceful, it still is a federal crime," the student said.

She replied: "I never encouraged anyone to protest. I encouraged them to engage peacefully, and to do it without violence, without threats, and without intimidation."
