For Democrats, the next midterm elections do not appear promising. In November, barring a miracle, Democrats will be slammed by a Red Wave.
The results demonstrated what U.S. News refers to as trump’s “enduring power” after he backed a variety of Republican candidates in the primaries.
The winners included political novices, such as a Wisconsin construction CEO and a relative unknown from Connecticut.
Within the Republican Party, those who totally back the former president and his allegations of electoral fraud are routinely prevailing against Republicans with a more moderate stance.
Instead of demonstrating a unified front against this, Democrats appear to be abandoning ship.
More than thirty Democratic incumbents have announced their retirement, which is typically a warning of impending disaster.
60% of senior House workers surveyed by Punchbowl News predict that Pelosi will resign after the November elections.
“The poll also sampled general House staffers.
Among the typical House staffers, 54 percent said Pelosi will retire.
Congressional staffers are personnel that assists members of Congress and committees, answer constituent mail, write questions for committee hearings, conduct communication duties, and plot legislative maneuvers,” Breitbart reported.
This spells peril for Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
“That more senior staffers believe Pelosi will retire likely comes from more experience and therefore carries more weight. Senior staffers told Punchbowl News Pelosi would not announce her retirement in the middle of a congressional session.
But they do acknowledge Pelosi has previously said this would be her last term as speaker,” the outlet added.
The study was conducted at a time when the GOP is expected to retake the House in November 2018 and may potentially retake the Senate.
37 percent selected “D.C. corruption/dysfunction” as their main priority, followed by 18 percent who mentioned immigration, 10 percent who cited healthcare, and 10 percent who cited employment and the economy.
