The Democrat Party is facing a catastrophe in the midterm elections if the polls are accurate and history is a guide.
The party in power typically loses in the midterm elections and the polling this year has been abysmal for the Democrats heading into November.
When that is paired with the rise in gas prices and inflation along with a steady stream of crises that the administration of President Joe Biden has faced, the picture gets even more bleak for the party, The Daily Caller reported.
Despite Biden’s temporary bump in national approval after defending Ukraine’s sovereignty in his recent State of the Union address, 57% of voters said they disapproved of his job performance amid inflation and high gas prices, according to new Wall Street Journal polling released Friday. The poll, which surveyed 1,500 known registered voters, was conducted online and via phone between March 2 and March 7 and had 2.5% margin of error.
Voters indicated they no longer trust the Democratic Party to handle COVID-19 and public education issues to the extent as in the WSJ’s previous November 2021 polling. While 41% still believe the Democratic Party is better equipped to handle the nation’s COVID-19 response, only 38% of voters believe the Democrats’ plan improves public education, the poll shows.
When asked about middle-class support, handling inflation and the struggling American economy, voters gave Biden and the Democratic Party a failing grade. Over 50% of voters said the economy and inflation should immediately be the federal government’s top issue.
The Journal said that 50 percent of voters named inflation as the top issue right now and 25 percent said that Russia and Ukraine war was at the top.
This is an issue for the president and Democrats because 63 percent of those polled did not approve of his handling of inflation and 47 percent said that Republicans are better equipped to handle it.
“More voters said that Republicans had a better plan to improve the economy, 45% to 37%, even though Sen. Mitch McConnell and Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the party’s leaders in each chamber, have advanced few specific economic-policy proposals they would pursue if they controlled Congress,” The Journal said.
“This is a five-alarm fire for the Democratic Party,” Tom Beaven, who founded Real Clear Politics, said.
The news on the Russia and Ukraine war was good for the president, with 50 percent approving of how he has handled it, and 79 percent approving of his ban on Russian oil, though it remains to be seen how that number changes as gas prices continue to rise.
But in a head to head match with former President Donald Trump, both the president and former president got 45 percent.
“A lot of Democrats will want to use Trump as the boogeyman in the midterm elections, but he’s not on the ballot,” Republican pollster Tony Fabrizio said. “And that’s really important, given how important inflation and the economy are to voters.”
Democratic pollster John Anzalone, who was the head pollster in the presidential campaign of President Biden, painted a dim picture.
“The mood of the country hasn’t gotten any better since the last poll. In fact, it’s gotten a little worse,” he said.
And there was more good news for Republicans, The Journal reported.
The Democrats a re losing the biggist supporters for their years of lying to them
This November will be a tectonic shift in political support to the MAGA republican party. The democrats are poised to be a less than 150-200 seat minority in the next congressional session in January 2023.
The leadership however must change if the MAGA party is to correct the current course direction of America.
And if the MAGA republican party were also to claim Senate majority, a real possibility, disastrous mitch mcconnell must not be anywhere close to leadership.
Gee that’s hard to believe. Dems are so full of great ideas. Here’s another one.
(Sarcasm alert for any trollers with no clue)
Democrat’s universal solution for all problems (even those they themselves caused): raise taxes. Further proof they have no idea how economies work and should NEVER be trusted with power in the US.
We chased of greg with simply stating the Truth.
He can’t argue how wrong he and his Party are, at this point.
As the world crumbles, you can’t take the blame off of Biden and the regime the Davos people installed in our government.
DNC: “MORE FRAUD! STAT!“
While the article does give one hope, it does not address the manipulation of voting machines and the cheat by mail that got Biden installed. I understand from my Georgia cousin that Stacey Abrams is very happy that Georgia recently purchased a train load of Dominion voting machines. Does anyone really think that America will have a fair election after the last successful fraudulent election?
It is no secret that election fraud is the Democrats’ mainstay. I hope and pray election officials (those not on Zuckenburg’s payroll) are attentive and alert enough to prevent a 2020 repeat.
It’s really going to be a state to state fight.
Florida has the right idea.
It’s fraud to harvest votes or allow a tech Billionaire to set up his own shadow voting system.
Those two things alone disqualify the 2020 election.
That’s the question I’ve pondered. If they can release a virus and then rig an election, in the open, just to get out Trump, then isn’t democracy pretty much over in our country?
I say yes.
There will be fighting at the poll places, and the CNN et al will report it as Republicans attacking Democrats because the Reps are losing.
