Generic Congressional Ballot Reveals WINNING Party Ahead Of Midterms
(TargetLiberty.org) – The 2022 midterm elections are right around the corner. States are currently holding primary elections to determine which candidates will be on the ballot in November. Republicans hope to take back the Senate and the House in the midterms.
Historically speaking, the party that has control of the executive branch typically loses seats in the midterms. The Democratic Party has been bracing for that possibility now that they have President Joe Biden in office. Polls have shown mixed results as the election gets closer, but one shows the GOP is gaining ground.
NBC News has been tracking how voters feel using a straw ballot. The survey has a fictional Republican going up against a fictional Democrat in a midterm congressional race. In May, voters tied the candidates at 46%, with 8% declaring themselves undecided. Just a few months later, and after the Supreme Court ruling to overturn federal abortion protections, the news organization once again sent out the fake ballots.
The poll asked voters their preference “for the outcome of this November’s congressional elections,” inquiring as to whether they would like Democrats or Republicans to hold control of Congress. The August results showed that 47% want the GOP, while 45% favor Democrats. The two-point gain shows the momentum is heading in the Right direction, pun intended.
Although the NBC news poll is certainly interesting, a Fox News poll shows something else.
Fox News Poll
According to a poll of registered voters taken by the conservative network from August 6 through August 9, there is a tie at 41% over who they want to see hold power after the election. Fox News reported the same poll showed the GOP with a 3-point lead in June and July and a 7-point lead in May.
If accurate, the poll seems to show Democrats gaining ground. Democratic pollster Chris Anderson told the network that the Left has likely seen a surge in support because of the killing of Ayman al-Zawahiri, the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), SCOTUS reversing Roe v. Wade, and other wins.
While Progressives may have seen some movement, the poll showed Republicans still have the edge regarding voter enthusiasm. The results showed that 50% of Conservatives compared to 41% of Dems expressed excitement, and 69% to 60%, respectively, will be voting in November.
Which side of the aisle will you choose? Do you want to see Republicans or Democrats take control in January?
