The party in power typically loses during the midterm elections.
Democrats are trying to avoid this fate, but Democrat pollster Doug Schoen says his party is in serious trouble in 2022.
He sees them not only losing, but losing big.
He writes at The Hill:
Without drastic changes, Democrats are on track to lose big in 2022
The marked decline in support for President Biden and his administration nationally and in key swing states indicates that the Democratic Party could endure a blowout defeat in the 2022 midterm elections.
Moreover, Biden is in a significantly weaker position now than both of his most recent Democratic predecessors — Bill Clinton and Barack Obama — at this point in their presidencies, which suggests that Democrats could suffer even more substantial losses in 2022 than the party did in 1994 and 2010.
Indeed, voters nationally and in seven key swing states disapprove, rather than approve, of the job Biden is doing by a margin of 7 points or greater, according to a Civiqs survey released last week…
And now, with congressional Democrats having approved a budget blueprint in their $3.5 trillion dollar spending bill — which will bring massive tax increases and will likely increase the debt, deficit and inflation — the electoral backlash against Democrats could be even more substantial than in both 1994 and 2010.
In addition to Biden’s precipitous national decline, the president’s approval rating in key swing states, most of which he won in 2020, has dropped. This of course bodes poorly for Democrats’ 2022 prospects — and also makes it increasingly likely that Biden will be a one-term president — notwithstanding a dramatic turn of events in Democrats’ favor.
Democrats deserve to lose the midterms.
Even by far-left CNN's estimates, congressional Democrats are not in very good standing for the 2022 midterm elections. https://t.co/CV839VVply

As mask mandates linger, Biden and his congressional colleagues will be hindered in next year's midterm elections if there is no clear "end" to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The problems Biden and his allies face have been exacerbated by their messaging. https://t.co/Ewg1XBYDPy

Giving the House and Senate back to the GOP will tie Biden’s hands.
That’s the best reason to do it.
