18-Point Swing Reported Among Independents!
(TargetLiberty.org) – For the Biden Administration, everything hangs on the results of next week’s midterm elections. If the Dems lose control of Congress there goes any hope of passing the rest of their legislative agenda. Now, with days to go, the polls have some very bad news for the Democrats.

A new CBS/YouGov poll shows that, with just over a week to go before the midterms, independent voters have been swinging massively towards the Republican Party. A previous poll taken in mid-October showed independents leaning 40-38 towards the Democrats — a narrow lead, but still a lead.
When the same question was asked again between October 26-28, however, the GOP had leapt into a massive 49-33 lead. That represents a swing of no less than 18% away from the Democrats — and it’s backed up by an October 28 Rasmussen poll that gave the Republicans a 49-42 lead.
Why are the polls swinging so hard against the Democrats? It’s likely because they’re campaigning on all the wrong things. Following the Supreme Court’s historic repeal of Roe v. Wade in June, the Dems have poured significant resources into campaigning on abortion rights. The problem for them is that a mere 5% of likely voters see this as the top priority in the upcoming election.
Meanwhile 26% think the economy is the most important issue, and another 18% are focused on the cost of living crisis. These are both areas where the GOP is strong — and the Democrats have let them fight on that ground. They could be regretting their strategy next Tuesday.
