“The 2022 midterm elections are now 235 days away, and Republicans have an 11-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress,” Rasmussen Reports writes.
Breitbart News reports:
And not only does the GOP enjoy an 11 point lead, but the GOP has also hit the magic 50 percent mark. Currently, 50 percent of likely voters will vote for the Republican ticket in November, compared to just 39 percent for Democrats. The GOP is even winning support from 11 percent of Democrats. Independents favor the GOP by a whopping 19 points, 46 to 27 percent. Most shocking is that 28 percent of black voters choose the Republican party, while only 62 percent support Democrats. That number needs to favor Democrats by 85-15 to have a chance.
A gander at the RealClearPolitics poll of polls shows that the Rasmussen poll is not a wild outlier. Currently, the Republican party averages almost 47 percent support while Democrats sit at just 43 percent.
Recent polls from Insider Advantage and the far-left Washington Post have the GOP up by eight and seven points, respectively.
What’s important to keep in mind is that polling has, for decades, consistently and artificially favored Democrats. Polling almost always overestimates Democrat support and underestimates Republican support. In all the years I’ve been watching politics, I cannot think of a single instance where I’ve been shocked at how well Democrats performed on an election night. You’re never surprised because the polling always-always-always favors Democrats.
Now, as the 2022 Midterm Elections are fast approaching, Democrats will have an uphill battle, especially as war with Ukraine, gas prices, Joe Biden’s handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal, and ISIS returning stay on voters’ minds as they head to the polls.
