With just over two weeks until the midterm elections, it now looks as though Republicans may win the Senate in addition to the House.
This would be a true game changer in American politics.
Joe Biden’s presidency would be effectively over and Democrats would no longer have the power to conduct any more of their sham investigations.
FOX News reports:
Senate polling averages 17 days from Election Day indicate Republicans may win majority
Polling averages and voting models indicate a bump in Republicans’ support in Senate races heading into the midterm elections.
RealClearPolitics is projecting the GOP is on track to flip Senate races in Arizona, Georgia and Nevada, though its polling average shows Democrat Raphael Warnock leading Republican Herschel Walker in Georgia.
On Monday, the New York Times/Siena College’s latest poll showed Republicans in a four-point lead, 49% to 45%, over Democrats when voters were asked whom they favored to represent them in Congress. Just last month, the Times/Siena’s September poll had Democrats with a one-point edge over Republicans.
Polling for the 2022 generic congressional vote — a closely watched indicator for midterm performance — shows Democrats’ average advantage over Republicans peaking in mid-September with a 1.3% lead, a decent advantage given that Biden’s approval rating has consistently hovered in the low 40s.
Electoral data analysis from FiveThirtyEight updated Saturday put the race for the Senate in a dead heat.
The Senate is currently split 50-50 between the two major parties, but the Democrats control the majority, thanks to the tie-breaking vote of Vice President Kamala Harris.
That means the GOP need a net gain of just one seat to regain the majority they lost when they were swept in the Jan. 5, 2021, twin Senate runoffs in Georgia.
Republicans have all the momentum on their side.
