Good News America — Demos Are in the Dumper
A LOT can happen between now and November, but Biden is thoroughly mired in his own muck.
According to Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball, there were 11 House rating changes, all favoring Republicans:
The bulk of these changes either move marginally competitive Republican-held seats to the Safe Republican category or move Democratic districts from Likely Democratic to the more competitive Leans Democratic column. Republicans remain strong favorites to win the House majority, and with redistricting nearly complete, we can now offer a more complete assessment of what our ratings suggest for the fall.
As of this writing, redistricting remains incomplete in Florida, Missouri, and New Hampshire. However, for the sake of argument, let’s assume the following: 1. Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) gets his way, and Republican state legislators approve his recently proposed map, where we’d rate 20 districts at least leaning Republican and 8 at least leaning Democratic; 2. Missouri eventually adopts a map that preserves 6 Republican-leaning seats and 2 Democratic-leaning ones; and 3. New Hampshire passes a map with 1 Democratic-leaning seat and 1 Toss-up.
If that happens, and no other state maps change due to legal action, here would be our topline ratings: 210 seats would be rated Safe, Likely, or Leans Republican, 198 would be rated Safe, Likely, or Leans Democratic, and 27 would be rated as Toss-ups. Given the political environment, we’d expect Republicans to do quite well among the Toss-up races. Let’s say, for the sake of argument, they win 20 of the 27. That would result in a 230-205 Republican House, or a net gain of 17 from what Republicans won in 2020.
Over at The Cook Political Report, as the changes were summarized by The Hill:
The changes include moving three previously “likely” Democratic districts — Indiana’s 1st, New York’s 19th and North Carolina’s 1st — into “lean” Democratic territory. Meanwhile, three districts that previously leaned toward Democrats — Nevada’s 3rd and 4th, as well as Virginia’s 7th district — are now toss-ups, according to the election handicapper. The Cook Political Report also shifted New Jersey’s 3rd District and New York’s 4th District into “likely” Democratic territory rather than “solid” Democratic territory.
Each of those districts — except for two — are currently held by Democrats seeking reelection this year. Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-N.Y.) is retiring from her seat in New York’s 4th District and Rep. G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) is not seeking reelection in North Carolina’s 1st District.
Meanwhile, Biden’s delusions of adequacy continue to erode.
New York Times leftist Charles Blow(hard) reports on shock and awe:
A recent poll truly shocked me. Quinnipiac University found that President Biden’s approval rating had sunk to just 33 percent. You might argue that this was just one poll, but Biden’s approval is down in multiple surveys. As CNN’s Harry Enten pointed out Friday, there were four major national polls released last week, and in three of them — including Quinnipiac — Biden had the lowest showing of his presidency. In the fourth, he was “one point off the lowest.”
And according to the RealClearPolitics polling averages, Biden’s approval is stuck around 40%, with his disapproval at almost 52%.
I mean, what did Biden voters think he was going to accomplish? A great economy? World peace? A restoration of dignity to the White House?
Granted, there are six months between now and the much-talked-about midterm elections, and a LOT can happen in those months.
But Biden and his Democrat Party are thoroughly mired down in a deep pile of Demo dung, including, most notably, surging inflation (now over 9%). And that is combined with the less visible proliferation of “shrinkflation – prices being upsized on common consumer products while packaging quantities are being downsized.
Rising inflation is the direct result of Biden’s so-called American Rescue Plan, which dumped $1.9 trillion in taxpayer-funded graft into a $300 billion economic hole created by the COVID pandemic – on top of all the 2020 "Covid relief” spending already being dispensed. The excess $1.6 trillion is indisputably a major factor in the inflation now crushing family budgets. Then they dumped another $1 trillion so-called “infrastructure bill” on the inflation pile and Biden wants to spend another $2.5 trillion.
Some Demos are waking up to the fact that Biden’s policies have resulted in surging violent crime, rising energy prices, and millions of illegal immigrants flooding the country as a result of Biden’s intentional and reckless open border policy. And with each new day there is another chapter of Biden’s corrupt family business with the ChiComs, bolstered by his reinvigoration of the Red China threat.
And now, after Biden’s deadly surrender and retreat from Afghanistan, there is a deadly war in Ukraine on NATO’s doorstep — with an emboldened Vladimir Putin knowing he has nothing to fear from Biden.
There is a growing “unity” against Biden, and by extension his Democrat Party, evident in his abysmal polling. His approval rating has been hovering around 38%, a reflection of his pathetic performance on every issue that matters most to Americans. Despite the full weight of his influential mainstream media talkingheads and scribes, including the White House press corps whose Democrat-to-Republican ratio is 12 to 1, Biden and company have been unable to move the public opinion needle back in their direction.
Notably, Harris is at record low approval for any VP candidate in history. Yes, Harris checked off the race, gender and generation boxes for the Biden ticket in 2020, and there was a lot of Democrat support for the feckless non compos mentis Biden ticket because she was on it. But, Harris has become increasingly toxic to that ticket.
There is an old adage: When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging. But Biden and his ilk only know how to dig deeper.
So, how low can Joe go? Don’t underestimate the depths, he is an overachiever!
Will Demo voters connect the dots, or will they, once again, willfully suspend their disbelief?
