Newly leaked polling data spells bad news for Democrats.
SF Gate reported on data leaked from someone at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee which shows that voters disagree with Democrats on a range of issues, including their pandemic response, policing, federal spending and the border.
Mike Berg, spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee blasted Democrats with the data. He laid out the key points he thinks are most worrisome for Democrats:
66% of swing voters think Democrats in Congress have taken things too far in their pandemic response.
80% of swing voters in competitive districts agree that “Democrats in Congress support defunding the police and taking more cops off of the street.”
78% of swing voters in competitive districts agree that “Democrats in Congress have created a border crisis that allows illegal immigrants to enter the country without repercussions and grants them tax-payer funded benefits once here.”
Finally, 61% of swing district voters agreed with the statements, “Democrats in Congress are spending money out of control,” and, “Democrats are teaching kids as young as five Critical Race Theory, which teaches that America is a racist country and that white people are racist.”
The poll comes after another poll, from Rasmussen, showed more bad news for Democrats.
“The 2022 midterm elections are now 263 days away, and Republicans have a 13-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress,” Rasmussen said. “The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that, if the elections for Congress were held today, 50% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for the Republican candidate, while 37% would vote for the Democrat. Just four percent (4%) would vote for some other candidate, but another nine percent (9%) are not sure.”
Overall, Republicans have a 13 point lead on the generic ballot.
“Republicans have added four points to their congressional advantage since January, when they led 48%-39%,” Rasmussen said. “The current 13-point GOP lead matches the November survey, but Democrats are now one point lower than they were in November.”
