Inflation, Afghanistan, Russia, gas prices, far-left policies and more have steadily sunk Democrats poll numbers in the last year, according to the latest data.
Now, Republicans are hoping to take advantage of it.
“The 2022 midterm elections are now 235 days away, and Republicans have an 11-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress,” said Rasmussen Reports, a major polling group. “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 39% would vote for the Democrat. Just five percent (5%) would vote for some other candidate, but another seven percent (7%) are not sure.”
That’s a major swing from the last 24 months. Gallup polling released in January showed a historic swing away from Democrats and to Republicans. That swing came before the most recent spike in gas prices Americans are seeing now.
“Both the nine-point Democratic advantage in the first quarter [of 2021] and the five-point Republican edge in the fourth quarter are among the largest Gallup has measured for each party in any quarter since it began regularly measuring party identification and leaning in 1991,” Gallup said.
This swing has Republicans hoping for big wins come November.
In 2022, Republicans will WIN Congress, Unconstitutional mandates will end, and Americans will STAND for freedom.
In 2024, We will re-elect President Donald J. Trump, and reclaim that beautiful White House!
