Democrats were stunned.
A closed-door meeting did not go the way anyone expected.
Nancy Pelosi got bad news that her retirement was coming sooner than anyone knew.
Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) Chairman New York Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney shared polling data with the caucus that showed Democrats were poised for defeat in 2022.
The DCCC’s polling showed Republicans leading Democrats by six points on the generic ballot in swing districts that will determine which party runs the House of Representatives after the 2022 midterm election.
“Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-N.Y.) followed that bleak forecast, which was confirmed by multiple people familiar with the conversation, with new polling that showed Democrats falling behind Republicans by a half-dozen points on a generic ballot in battleground districts. Maloney advised the party to course-correct ahead of 2022 by doing more to promote President Joe Biden’s agenda, which remains popular with swing voters,” POLITICO reported.
DCCC executive director Tim Persico tried to spin the polling as a good sign for Democrats.
“We are not afraid of this data … We’re not trying to hide this,” Persico told POLITICO.
“If [Democrats] use it, we’re going to hold the House. That’s what this data tells us, but we gotta get in action,” Persico stated.
But Michigan Congresswoman Debbie Dingell disagreed.
“We’re not breaking through,” Dingell stated.
Recent polling data showed that was the case.
A recent CNBC poll that showed Joe Biden with just a 48 percent approval rating also found his approval on handling COVID tumbling nine points while Biden’s approval on the economy sunk four points to 42 percent.
Biden’s poll numbers plummeted as Americans realized Biden pulled a bait and switch by reimposing mask mandates and promising further COVID restrictions.
But Democrats hope to trumpet the supposed achievements of the Biden administration.
“The point is, to make sure that we’re all on the same page, that we understand the stakes,” Persico told POLITICO. “Here’s the good news: Everything we are doing and everything we’ve talked about doing is incredibly popular.”
Democrats’ majority in the House of Representatives rests on a razor’s edge.
Republicans only need to flip a small handful of seats to oust Nancy Pelosi as speaker of the House.
The Democrats’ own polling data shows the party would be routed if the current political trajectory holds steady.
That could spell the end of Nancy Pelosi’s career in Congress.
Pelosi promised to only serve two terms as speaker as part of deal with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other socialists to win their votes to run the House after the 2018 election.
If Democrats lose the House, it is impossible to see Pelosi serving as a backbench member in a toothless minority.
That means this midterm election looks like Pelosi’s swan song.
And the Democrats’ own data shows Pelosi headed for the exits on the heels of a humiliating defeat.
