Things ARE unsettled right now…
While the Republican voters out there maybe partial to ‘The Donald’?
Some Republican lawmakers are slowly sinking back into pre-Trumpain mode…
This is causing a riff in the party….
Democrats on the other hand are the ones rowing together…
Their guy IS the President….
Life goes on….
With Trump taking up less media space….
One can look forward to next years midterm elections….
Democrats lawmakers who have been around for a while , and Joe Biden , probably have vivid memories of the 2010 midterm results….
Democrats got rolled….
I’m sure Biden, Pelosi and Schumer along with the Democratic ‘party’ are do what ever they can to INCREASE their minuscule majorities in Congress and try to gain some down ballots wins also….
All THAT may be about the next 21 months of politics…
And Donald Trump’s problems….
….Before we declare that the GOP is in free-fall, it’s important to remember we are only ONE MONTH into Biden’s first term. We are more than 20 months away from the midterm elections. Trump’s role in 2022 could be a definitive issue in the next election. Or, it may not be. I don’t mean to sound snarky. But, honestly, we need some perspective here.
First, history tells us that Democrats will have a tough time holding onto their already narrow House majority next year. Only once in more than 80 years has the party in the White House NOT lost seats in a first-term midterm election. This is true even when a president is relatively popular. Pres. George HW Bush went into the 1990 midterms with a 58 percent approval rating. His party still lost nine seats. We are also in a redistricting year where Republicans will have the upper hand in drawing district lines in key battleground states.
A midterm election is not a contest between two different visions for America; it is a referendum on the sitting president and his party. The party out of power is unified not necessarily in what they are for but what they are against, namely the other side’s policies. Pre-Trump, Republicans were unified by their shared dislike of President Obama and Hillary Clinton. The 2016 election may have divided the Democratic Party, but two years of President Trump brought them back together in time for the 2018 midterms….
Back in 2009 it was Obamacare…..
The Republicans ran against it…
It cost Democrats…
Biden starts off with YUGE bill to give people money….
Most America support this….
Joe Biden isn’t dumb…
With Congressional Stimulus Fight Looming, 76% of Voters Back $1.9 Trillion Plan, Including 60% of Republicans
89% of Democrats said they support the proposed COVID-19 aid package..
