Democrats are failing in just about every department right now. Their news outlets are collapsing, their agendas are being stopped cold, their narratives are being disrupted and they consider it a great day for their leader when he can manage to finish a cohesive sentence.
With all of this going against them, it is no surprise that the Dem Party’s chances are not looking so great going into the 2022 midterms. Dems are lagging behind the GOP by double digits in the polls.
The poll had 1,073 participants, Republicans had a 13 percent lead over Dems, 54.4 percent to 41.9 percent.
The rest of the poll does not look that promising for Dems either. When it comes to confidence in succeeding with their agenda, Dems actually had a little more faith than the Republicans did in the GOP, meaning that Dems do not seem to think their own party could withstand a Republican offensive in the coming years. Republicans are not so confident in their own party at just 39.1 percent, but Democrats do believe in the GOP’s ability at 55.5 percent.
This does not mean Democrats agree with the GOP. Disagreement on things like who should have control over what our students learn at school, teachers unions or parents, finds the two groups opposed. In fact, the only thing Republicans and Democrats do seem to have a majority agreement on is that China has become a very real threat to the United States.
Regardless of these disagreements, its likely some Dems and most Independents seem to like Republican candidates enough to give them a double-digit lead. What’s more, the poll Trafalgar conducted had contained almost four percent more Dems than Republicans, with Independents coming in at about 25.1 percent.
Republicans and Democrats still cannot seem to agree on a lot, but the takeaway from the poll is that Dems have lost absolute faith in what their party can accomplish, if anything. While they do support the White House’s agendas by a majority, they have been taught by their own party that they shouldn’t expect too much in terms of movement. Failure has become the norm for the left which has continued to get disrupted often, and not just from the GOP, but from their own party as well.
While there’s still a decent amount of time before the 2022 midterm elections and there is a lot of football still left to play, if this pattern holds, we might see even more of a shift in favor of the GOP, allowing the pendulum to have a more dramatic swing their way and allowing them to win back control over the Senate and House, as well as keeping safe gubernatorial seats in different states.
If Dems continue to push out radical politics, we might even see more Republican governors being added to that roster.
Anything is possible, including a reversal of Republican favor. It is a long road to the midterms and many things might happen, but as it stands, Dems have been stumbling and tripping down the road since 2020, and it does not look like that is going to change in the foreseeable future.
