Republicans +10 on the generic ballot (up from R+2 in October)https://t.co/Bht52SJe8J
We are beginning our morning with another new poll.
Since settling on the revolutionary platform “Let’s Go Brandon” and deciding to come up with policies later, the poll shows that Republicans are up 10 points on the generic ballot for the 2022 midterms.
“Results in the CNBC All-America Economic survey imply potentially large Democratic losses in the November election.
Biden’s overall approval rating stabilized at a low level of 41%, about the same level as former President Donald Trump’s, compared to 50% who disapprove. …
But Biden’s approval rating on handling the economy and dealing with the coronavirus both declined.
At 46% approval to 48% disapproval, Biden’s approval rating on the coronavirus is now underwater for the first time.
His economic approval sank more deeply underwater, with 37% approving compared to 56% who disapprove, down from 40% approval to 54% in the second quarter survey. …
Republicans now sport a historic 10-point advantage when Americans are asked which party they prefer to control Congress, holding a 44%-34% margin over Democrats. That’s up from a 2-point Republican advantage in the October survey.
In the past 20 years, CNBC and NBC surveys have never registered a double-digit Republican advantage on congressional preference, with the largest lead ever being 4 pints for the GOP. …”
It makes sense to me.
This is what the Right is now. So why not go with it?
The GOP is an outlet for backlash politics and lib owning. That’s all that matters and people have lots of legitimate reasons to be angry now. There’s no doubt about what is driving this.
Note: James Carville’s phrase about “pulling the pin on the grenade” sums up the situation. The Democrats have self destructed. They are getting blamed by the public for lots of issues.
