Democrats wanted to avoid this disaster at all costs.
But now all hell is breaking loose.
And Nancy Pelosi found out some scary news that will decide her leaving Congress.
The biggest predictor for which way the midterm elections will turn out is the president’s approval.
And on that front Democrats have reason to panic.
Chuck Todd – the left-wing host of NBC’s “Meet the Press” – leveled with Democrats in the opening of his show by announcing NBC’s latest polling contained “scary news for the Democrats.”
Inflation is surging at the highest levels in 30 years.
A record number of illegal aliens invaded America in 2021.
The botched withdrawal from Afghanistan led to the deaths of 13 U.S. troops and stranded hundreds of Americans in Taliban-controlled territory.
That litany of failures showed in the NBC poll where just 42 percent of voters approved of the job Joe Biden is doing as president.
And in an even more disturbing finding, just 22 percent of voters believe the country is on the right track.
“Just 22 percent of adults say [the U.S. is] headed in the right direction,” Todd added. “A shocking 71 percent say we’re on the wrong track.”
Midterm elections are a contest of base enthusiasm and mobilization.
In that case, the NBC poll showed Pelosi had even more to worry about as the survey showed Republican voters much more interested in voting in 2022 than rank and file Democrats.
“But the GOP enjoys a significant enthusiasm advantage at this point in the election cycle, with 69 percent of Republicans expressing a high level of interest about the midterms (on a 1-to-10 scale), versus 58 percent of Democrats who hold the same level of interest,” NBC reported.
Republicans also held massive double-digit leads on the big issues voters care about the most – specifically the economy, border security and inflation.
“When asked which party better handles particular issues, Republicans hold double-digit advantages on border security (by 27 points), inflation (24 points), crime (22 points), national security (21 points), the economy (18 points) and being effective and getting things done (13 points),” NBC also reported about its poll’s findings.
The NBC poll is just the latest data point showing the public turning on Joe Biden and the Democrats.
And that complicates House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s plans.
Pundits and elected officials in Washington widely expect Pelosi to retire after the midterm elections.
Pelosi already oversaw one historic drubbing when voters swept Democrats out of power in the 2020 Tea Party wave where Republicans picked up 63 seats.
The NBC polling suggests Democrats are on the verge of getting washed away by another red wave next fall.
If that is the case, then Pelosi will slink out of Congress as the first speaker to lose control of Congress twice.
