Cook Political Report Shifts Six More 2022 House Races To Republicans

The political amalysis and polling firm known as the Cook Political Report has just shifted six more races for the House of Representatives in the 2022 midterms to Republicans.

This news is especially devastating for Democrats as Republicans need only a handful of seats to flip control of the House in November.

At this point, most speculation is just about how big the Republican win will be once all the votes are cast.

Cook Report moves six House races toward GOP

The adjustments come as inflation remains at record highs and President Biden’s approval rating hovers just above 40 percent, according to the latest Gallup poll. The six races that Cook updated in favor of Republicans include four in California, one in Pennsylvania and one in Rhode Island.

One of the seats that Cook shifted in the GOP’s direction is Rhode Island’s 2nd Congressional District, which Rep. Jim Langevin (D) currently represents. Langevin, who is not running for reelection, has held the seat for 20 years, and a Democrat has held the seat for 30 years.

Cook moved the race from lean Democrat to a toss-up race.

Cook also shifted two House races in favor of the Democratic candidate, moving Rep. Kevin Calvert’s (R) race in California’s 41st Congressional District from likely Republican to lean Republican and Rep. María Elvira Salazar’s (R) race in Florida’s 27th Congressional District from solidly Republican to likely Republican.

Dave Wasserman, Cook’s senior editor for the House, concluded that early district-level polling paints a “bleak picture” for House Democrats, with Biden’s approval rating still poor in competitive districts.

Big changes are likely in November. The political landscape looks very good for the GOP.

Democrats deserve to lose.

Americans are struggling and all Democrats want to talk about is January 6th.
