According to recent polling, despite some defeats in recent weeks, it appears that a “Red Wave” is still likely to occur in the November 2022 midterm elections, and the administrative state finds this thought to be extremely unsettling due to the implications of the shifting agendas.
“New Florida poll puts DeSantis up 20 points among Hispanics,” Ed Morrissey reported for Hot Air.
One Twitter user responded to the Morrissey remark by writing, “The midterm red wave may have crested elsewhere, but it doesn’t appear to have tapped out in Florida — at least not in the latest University of North Florida survey.”
However, it’s possible that the crimson wave never really crested.
According to Steve Cortes on Real America’s Voice, “40% of small businesses in this country cannot pay their August rent per a National Survey of over 7,000 small businesses! 45% of restaurants & 53% of minority owned businesses cannot pay their August rent,” indicating that the Red Wave is coming.
Others who predict the same course of events join him.
A new poll released over the weekend contradicts the mainstream media’s assertion that a “red wave” of Republican victories in the November midterm elections is becoming less likely.
“Last fall, Republicans held high hopes of a “red wave” in the 2022 elections after they stormed to power in blue-leaning Virginia and nearly won the governor’s race in New Jersey. While Democrats were demotivated, the GOP base was on fire,” according to a study published by NBC News last week.
“But in recent weeks, numerous data points have indicated Republican prospects of a smashing victory are dimming. While the president’s party tends to perform poorly in midterm elections, there are signs it is shaping up to be an unusual year, potentially enabling Democrats to hold one or both chambers of Congress,” the site stated, sprinkling recent Democratic election successes to support its claim.
“The outlet quoted a Republican consultant, Rick Tyler, who claimed that GOP voter enthusiasm has cratered, saying that the political environment is “not even close” to a “red wave” election year,” Jon Doughtery of Conservative Brief stated.
Tyler told The Hill, “The enthusiasm is just not there.Last time Republicans had a good year, they were 6 points ahead in the generic poll. Now we’re barely 2 points ahead. So it’s definitely not going to happen.”
Former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) made a similar observation and reported:
.“Republicans have to start paying attention. The problem is where Republicans have to pick up in order to win the Congress is in districts like that,” according to Santorum. “If you look at the national polls, if you look at a lot of these races like in my home state of Pennsylvania — if this is a red wave year, the polls are not showing it right now.”
“But according to the newly-released Trafalgar Group’s Generic Ballot Nationwide Survey, pollsters found that respondents are definitely more prone to cast votes for GOP candidates than they are for Democrats,” Doughtery writes.
In the poll:
According to the study, which was conducted from August 28 to 30, 47.2% of respondents stated they want to support the Republican nominee in the general election, while just 41.4% preferred the Democratic candidate. 11.4 percent of people were unsure.
Surprisingly, 39.3 percent more self-identified Democrats than Republicans participated in the study (35.6 percent). And more women (53.3 percent) responded than men (46.7 percent) (46.7 percent).
However, other Republicans are cautioning that despite the shifting political landscape, it is still too early to declare the November elections to be final.
According to The Hill, Michael McAdams, the communications director for the National Republican Congressional Committee, stated in a statement that “Anyone who thought retaking the majority was going to be easy needs to buck up.”
While Joe Biden and Democrats are attempting to make the November elections about former President Donald Trump, according to McAdams and other Republicans, the focus for the party needs to be completely on Democratic policies.
More on this story via The Republic Brief:
“Majorities are won in November not August and we look forward to prosecuting the case against Democrats’ failed one-party rule,” McAdams added, according to The Hill.
Other Republican advisers were more upbeat, even after Democrats won a special election in a New York district that went for Trump in 2016 and Biden in 2020. CONTINUE READING…
