Now that midterm elections are less than five months away, Republicans maintain a six-point lead in their effort to reclaim control of Congress.
According to the most recent national telephone survey by Rasmussen Reports, if congressional elections were held today, 47 percent of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for the Republican candidate and 41 percent would vote for the Democratic candidate. Only 4 percent of people would vote for a different candidate, and 7 percent are undecided.
The Republican Party’s lead has decreased by three points since last week, when it led 48 percent to 39 percent. Despite this, the Republicans are poised to retake at least the House thanks to Biden and the Democrats’ inept handling of, well, everything.
As Biden and his fellow socialists wreak havoc on the United States and inflation, and as gas prices continue to skyrocket, ordinary Americans are bearing the pain.
The answer to Reagan’s inquiry, “Are you better off than you were four years ago?” would be a loud “no” from the majority of Americans.
How about providing Americans with a glimmer of hope?
Donald Trump could shortly declare his candidacy for the presidency of the United States in 2024, if he so chooses.
Many believe the former president will run for president in 2024 based on his hints that he will do so. NBC News now reports that sources indicate his announcement might come as early as July 4.
Many believe that he should delay his decision until after the midterm elections, while others feel that he should announce now to prevent other potential candidates from becoming formidable rivals.
Jason Miller, the former president’s longtime adviser, told the Wyoming crowd at the Memorial Day weekend event, “I’ve made my case for why he should do it.” “I think that there being clarity about what his intentions are [is important] so he can start building that operation while it’s still fresh in people’s minds and they’re still active — a lot of that can be converted into 2024 action.”
A second adviser proposed delaying the announcement until after the November elections, but Trump is expected to make his decision “sooner rather than later.”

One question that the adviser asked is “whether he can sort of suppress his excitement about a 2024 rematch and not, say, go ahead and put that statement out … and waits for a big event, a big speech to do it.”
“A betting person says he’s doing it, and he also wants to crowd out the rest of the field,” they explained.
Two people in Trump’s orbit told NBC News they had been asked informally to hold July 4 as a date for a possible announcement, but Miller — noting that Trump hasn’t yet decided to run — said it is “not true” that the day has been reserved, even unofficially, for a launch. Read more…
