If Biden's numbers are anywhere close to this bad in other swing states -- and districts --- Democrats' hopes of holding onto their very narrow three-seat House majority are somewhere close to nonexistent.

"In Gallup's polling history, presidents with job approval ratings below 50% have seen their party lose 37 House seats, on average, in midterm elections. That compares with an average loss of 14 seats when presidents had approval ratings above 50%."


I'm unusual among the current crop of SS posters for many reasons. One of those reasons is that I reside in a purple state: Pennsylvania.

GOPs won state legislature elections in 020, one of many reasons to conclude that the Dems cheated here in the 020 presidential election...

...any way, as far as the 022 election is concerned, GOPs control gerrymandering, as they do in most purple states.

But, more directly important is the fact that a GOP held Senate seat is up in 022 and that GOP Senator, Pat Toomey, is retiring.

Up until the collapse of Clouseau's popularity, and effin credibility, current Pennsylvania Lt. Governor John Fetterman was the odds on favorite to win that seat.

We'll see. But, after the Afghan dust settles, it will seem likely that the winner of the GOP Primary will have a decided advantage.

As I mention frequently, we vacation in Virginia on a regular basis and I'm familiar with the machinations of Virginia politics. Virginia is bluish purple but things are now looking better for the GOPs in this year's gubernatorial election.

It's still early for 022. But, we know that Joe's dementia is not going to get better. It'll only get worse.

Can you say Red Wave?

    Your problem is that to you, trump's presidency was a glorious success in which the only outcome of the 2020 election could have been was that he not only would keep all the votes he got in '16, but he actually must surely have gained supporters and voters in the interim.

    It's apparently inconceivable to you that his pig-ignorant incompetence, his corrupt and self serving corruption, his two impeachments for committing felonies, and his all-around despicable immorality and sociopathy could in any way whatsoever be to blame for him losing any Better Dead AND Red Pennsylvanian Republicans.

    He was the worst president that this country ever had. By leaps and felonious bounds. And yet you think that it was impossible for any Republicans in your state to have wised up to that fact by the next time they had him on a ballot, and that the only way he could have lost was by Biden cheating? Absolutely flabbergasting.


    One of the most common things about presidential elections is that the new president's party looses seats in the next midterm. Here we go again, having to suffer your total ignorance of context.

    So here you are, making a big deal out of predicting that the sun will rise in the east tomorrow. Woop-tee-friggin'-doo.

    No, po.

    As far as the effin House is concerned, there's the question of whether the GOPs will gain enough seats to win an effin majority, not if they'll gain seats. Oy effin vey! It seems likely now that they will gain a majority...and with many to spare.

    More importantly, in 016, the GOPs actually picked up seats in the effin Senate. Until recently, it seemed likely that the Dems'd pick up the seat in Pennsylvania. It's still not a done deal that the GOPs will take the Senate. But, with this Iowa polling, it's increasingly likely. Yeeeeeeeha!


  4. by Ponderer on September 23, 2021 8:43 am

    Of course it's possible that the GOP will gain a majority in the House. Again, where's the story here?

    You're not going to get me to bet against the Stupid in this country. Stupid people are capable of doing anything. Even voting in Republicans.


  5. by HatetheSwamp on September 23, 2021 8:53 am

    Ah, yes. THEIR stupidity.

    Do you have anything other than sanctimony and pseudo omniscience?


  6. by Ponderer on September 23, 2021 9:04 am

    It's not my fault that stupid people make stupid decisions.

    If you want to argue that not all stupid decisions are made by stupid people, I could agree with you there. For example, not all Republicans are stupid people. They just vote stupidly. As in against their own interests. As in to the detriment of our society.

    We will never get this country on a positive and better track for everyone until enough Republicans decide that the fate of our citizenry, our democracy, and the country itself are more important to them than "Owning the Libs!".

    You can only thank your lucky stars that you are so vastly superior to so many people.


  8. by Ponderer on September 23, 2021 9:34 am
    If you want to think that my simply not voting stupidly makes me "superior" to everyone else, that's not on me. I just don't think that about myself at all.
