A longtime Democratic strategist warned his own party members that they may face blowout losses in mid-2022.
“The approval rate for the president has dropped significantly [Joe] Biden and his administration have shown nationally and in key swing states that the Democrats may suffer a blowout failure in the 2022 midterm elections. “Worked for former President Bill Clinton and served as a consultant to Michael Bloomberg’s brief presidential campaign. Douglas Schoen (Douglas Schoen) said. Wrote in a review article on The Hill this week.
In recent days, the Biden administration has received strong opposition from both parties on how to handle the U.S. withdrawal, and the new COVID-19 authorization for private employers announced by Biden last week may be strongly opposed by Republican governors and other entities. Inflation, gasoline prices and rising grocery prices may also trigger a rebound in opinion polls.
“Biden’s current status is significantly lower than his two most recent Democratic predecessors-Bill Clinton and Barack Obama-at this point during their presidency, which suggests that the Democratic Party may suffer more losses in 2022 than it should be. The party was in 1994 and 2010,” he continued.
Schoen warned that in Congress, the performance of Democrats is not much better. He said the problem is a budget resolution worth $3.5 trillion, which could lead to a substantial increase in taxes, while increasing debt, deficits and inflation.
“The backlash against the Democrats in the election may be more serious than in 1994 and 2010,” he said, referring to the Republican Party’s previous victory in Congress. Historically, the president’s party would lose its seat in the subsequent midterm elections.
The Democrats currently have a 50-50 majority in the Senate, with Vice President Kamala Harris as the tiebreaker. Although Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Democrat of California) has previously expressed belief that her party will retake the House of Commons in 2022, they also have a small majority in the House of Representatives.
Schoen wrote: “Republicans only need to win five seats in the House of Representatives, and the re-division of constituencies alone may cost the Democrats close to or even more than this number.” “In addition, since World War II, the president’s party has only twice been in the midterms. Seats won in the elections-in 1998 and 2002, the approval ratings of the two presidents both exceeded 60%. Even so, the increase in seats in the House of Representatives was minimal.”
Schoen finally suggested that the White House and the Democrats need to change course to prevent Congress from suffering major losses.
“If the Biden administration continues to implement unnecessary large-scale government spending plans and tax increases, coupled with weak immigration policies and incoherent foreign policy strategies, the Democratic Party may suffer the largest midterm loss of any party in modern history,” he Say.
Last month, before the United States withdrew from Afghanistan, Pelosi told reporters that she did not believe that poll data indicated that the Republican Party would take over the House of Representatives in 2022.
“I am very confident that we will win the House of Representatives,” Pelosi said on August 6, ignoring the previous warning issued by Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (DN.Y.), chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, in August. Submit to the current Democratic Party representatives.
