(FiveNation.com)- Last week, podcaster Steve Bannon indicated that Trump supporters will “reign for 100 years.”
Bannon made the passing remark when he and his guest, former Trump advisor Jason Miller, were discussing the upcoming 2022 midterm elections and the presidential election in 2024.
Miller told Bannon that he doesn’t believe Joe Biden will run for reelection in 2024 and suggested that Democrats would pressure Biden to step aside after the midterms which Miller believes Republicans will win big.
Miller predicted Republicans would win at least 60 seats in the House next year, adding that the Republican landslide could even be bigger than that. He said he even heard some suggest Republicans could be poised to win as many as 90 to 100 seats, making it the biggest landslide in history.
Bannon interjected, “Yeah, 100 seats, we reign for 100 years.”
Recent surveys on the Generic Congressional Vote have shifted decisively toward Republicans. A CNBC poll earlier this month had Republicans ten points ahead of Democrats.
While some outlier polls still give the Democrats a solid advantage, most Generic Congressional Vote surveys over the last month have Republicans comfortably in the lead. The Real Clear Politics Average has Republicans favored over Democrats by 2.4 points.
Typically, the party of the president loses seats during the first midterm. With the Democrats holding the thinnest of majorities in the House and clinging to a 50/50 “majority” in the Senate thanks to VP Kamala Harris casting the tie-breaking vote, Republicans won’t need to win many seats to regain control.
Even the Democrats know the midterms are going to be brutal, which is why so many of them have decided not to run for reelection.
In his interview with ABC News’ David Muir on Wednesday, President Biden confirmed that he planned to run for reelection in 2024. But he added the caveat that he would only run if he is as healthy as he is right now.
When asked by Muir if Biden would run again if that meant running against Donald Trump, the vain, overly-confident Biden laughed and said Trump running would increase the likelihood he would run again.
