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?
