As we head into the 2022 midterm elections Republicans have gone beyond landslide numbers and into absolute devastation of the Democrat Party.

The most recent Rasmussen poll shows that 50 percent of likely voters would pick the Republican candidate over 30 percent who said they would pick the Democrat.
With inflation, gas prices, the disastrous withdraw from Afghanistan, the current crisis between Russia and Ukraine, the Southern border and more, these numbers should not be a stunner to anyone.
If the polls are accurate, and there are many polls that show Republicans with a commanding lead, then House Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s majority is all but certainly going to be a memory.
The Western Journal reported:
In March 2018, Democrats were ahead of Republicans by 46 percent to 40 percent. By November, the GOP had managed to close the gap and even take a small lead. A poll taken right before the 2018 midterms showed the Republicans with 46 percent and the Democrats, who won back the majority, with 45 percent.
The party of the president typically loses House seats in the midterms anyway. But making matters even worse for then-President Donald Trump in 2018 was the ongoing and fraudulent special counsel investigation. The Democrats had claimed he colluded with the Kremlin to win the 2016 election.
Rasmussen attributed the Republicans’ current lead to “greater GOP partisan intensity” and to strong Republican support among independent voters. The poll found that 46 percent of independents favored the Republican candidate compared with only 27 percent who preferred the Democrat, a difference of 19 percent.
The survey also found that 94 percent of Republicans would vote for their party’s candidate while 82 percent of Democrats said the same, a 12 percent differential.
And believe it or not, there is even worse news for the Democrats in this poll as it shows Republicans making headway with minority voters.
The poll showed 28 percent of black voters, along with 48 percent of other minorities, and 54 percent of white voters would pick the Republican candidate. It even showed that 50 percent of women would pick the Republican.
Earlier this month another poll showed similar results for the midterm elections,
The Daily Caller reported.
Despite Biden’s temporary bump in national approval after defending Ukraine’s sovereignty in his recent State of the Union address, 57% of voters said they disapproved of his job performance amid inflation and high gas prices, according to new Wall Street Journal polling released Friday. The poll, which surveyed 1,500 known registered voters, was conducted online and via phone between March 2 and March 7 and had 2.5% margin of error.
Voters indicated they no longer trust the Democratic Party to handle COVID-19 and public education issues to the extent as in the WSJ’s previous November 2021 polling. While 41% still believe the Democratic Party is better equipped to handle the nation’s COVID-19 response, only 38% of voters believe the Democrats’ plan improves public education, the poll shows.
This is an issue for the president and Democrats because 63 percent of those polled did not approve of his handling of inflation and 47 percent said that Republicans are better equipped to handle it.
“More voters said that Republicans had a better plan to improve the economy, 45% to 37%, even though Sen. Mitch McConnell and Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the party’s leaders in each chamber, have advanced few specific economic-policy proposals they would pursue if they controlled Congress,” The Journal said.
New WSJ poll: “50% cited inflation as the top issue they want the federal government to address. The Ukraine conflict was No. 2, with 25% of voters saying it was most important.”

“This is a five-alarm fire for the Democratic Party,” Tom Beaven, who founded Real Clear Politics, said.

The news on the Russia and Ukraine war was good for the president, with 50 percent approving of how he has handled it, and 79 percent approving of his ban on Russian oil, though it remains to be seen how that number changes as gas prices continue to rise.
But in a head to head match with former President Donald Trump, both the president and former president got 45 percent.

“A lot of Democrats will want to use Trump as the boogeyman in the midterm elections, but he’s not on the ballot,” Republican pollster Tony Fabrizio said. “And that’s really important, given how important inflation and the economy are to voters.”
Democratic pollster John Anzalone, who was the head pollster in the presidential campaign of President Biden, painted a dim picture.
“The mood of the country hasn’t gotten any better since the last poll. In fact, it’s gotten a little worse,” he said.
