(FiveNation.com)- Last week, while addressing a Republican group at the Capitol Hill Club, podcast host Steve Bannon told the group that the MAGA movement will have a “sweeping victory” in the 2022 Midterm elections. And that victory will only be “the preamble to a sweeping victory in 2024.”
On Tuesday, Quinnipiac released its generic Congressional poll that revealed a 7-point shift from Democrat to Republican in less than a month. In September, Democrats were favored 47 percent to 43 percent in the Quinnipiac Congressional poll. But now, Republicans are favored 47 percent to 43 percent.
And that’s Quinnipiac – a polling outfit that notoriously over-samples Democrats.
The trend for 2022 is cause for Democrat worry. Which may be why the Democrats and President Biden have begun attacking Congressional Republicans and blaming them for Biden’s numerous failures.
Bannon doesn’t have to be Nostradamus to see that 2022 is shaping up to be a complete rout.
The tug-of-war between the far-Left caucus and the nominally moderate wing of the party isn’t helping the Democrats position themselves for Midterm victory. Especially considering that President Biden, who was elected as a supposed “moderate,” can’t stop caving to the radicals.
The most recent Congressional approval polling has Congress with a 60 percent disapproval. And according to Rasmussen’s polling on Monday, a staggering 65 percent of Americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction.
The Democrats’ decision to target Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema for harassment over the $3.5 trillion phony infrastructure bill is only adding fuel to the fire.
Traditionally a first-term President’s party loses seats in the midterm election. And given the cascading failures of the Biden administration, 2022 is shaping up to not only follow that trend, but to be on par with both the 1994 and 2010 Republican sweeps.
Democrats’ hopes of turning Texas blue are all but lost thanks to Biden’s disastrous open borders policies. The flood of illegals entering the country is turning even Texas Hispanic Democrats against the party.
With this week’s news that Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland will unleash the FBI on parents protesting their local school boards, the Democrats run the risk of enraging voters all the more.
And as much as Trump supporters may dislike Mitch McConnell, the truth is, when it comes to positioning the Republicans for 2022, McConnell has played all of this masterfully. He has pushed the Democrats into a corner while keeping the Republicans in the Senate in tight formation.
