The midterm election is two weeks away.
And the electoral picture is now coming into focus.
Now the Democrats just got hit with some bad news from the last place anyone ever expected.
In the last several weeks polls shifted dramatically in favor of the Republican Party.

Americans began focusing in on the election as bad inflation numbers poured in, Americans received their quarterly 401K retirement account statements showing an average loss of 25 to 30% of their savings, gas prices on the rise, and news stories about violent criminals operating with impunity on the streets of Democrat-run cities.
This toxic stew caused a slew of awful poll numbers for Democrats that forced Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi’s allies in the corporate media to abandon their left-wing cheerleading and admit the dire reality of the situation.
Democrats hoped the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade would motivate legions of female swing voters to rebuke Republicans in a pro-abortion tidal wave.
But a New York Times/Siena poll that found Republicans taking a four-point lead on the Generic Congressional Ballot powered by a 32-point swing in the GOP’s favor by independent women crushed that dream.
The New York Times reported:
The poll shows that 49 percent of likely voters said they planned to vote for a Republican to represent them in Congress on Nov. 8, compared with 45 percent who planned to vote for a Democrat. The result represents an improvement for Republicans since September when Democrats held a one-point edge among likely voters in the last Times/Siena poll.
The biggest shift came from women who identified as independent voters. In September, they favored the Democrats by 14 points. Now, independent women backed Republicans by 18 points.
Left-wing activist Aaron Blake pretends to be a neutral reporter.
But even Blake had to admit Democrats’ gooses were cooked following a Monmouth poll that found Republicans leading Democrats by four points, an 11-point reversal from Monmouth’s August poll showing Democrats holding a 50-43 percent advantage over Republicans on the generic ballot.
[T]he GOP’s chances of winning both chambers growing.
A Monmouth University poll released Thursday is the latest to suggest the 2022 election is moving in the GOP’s direction. It shows Republicans with a four-point lead on the question of which party American adults prefer to run Congress. That’s the GOP’s best showing since May — before the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. Republicans also lead by six points among registered voters, specifically.
The final domino to fall was liberal election data guru Nate Silver finally admitting that the GOP polling surge was real and that his site’s election forecasting model – which listed Democrats as a favorite to win the Senate – was too bullish on their chances.
“Was a bit skeptical of the GOP poll surge before, but I think the evidence for it is now pretty convincing, and if anything I’m more bearish on Democratic chances than our model is,” Silver wrote on Twitter.
To be clear, the corporate media mindlessly rooting for Democrats is the biggest advantage Democrats have.
Now that liberal reporters and pundits are accepting the reality of the political situation news coverage will reflect the fact that the roof fell in on Democrats and the left will lose its homefield advantage in the press.
