The 2022 midterms are still a year away, but as things stand now they are not looking good for the Democrats.
Republicans only need to flip a half a dozen seats to take control of the House but they could end up taking a lot more than that.
If Democrats thought their 2018 midterm win was a blowout, they may be in for a surprise.
BizPac Review reports:
Analysis indicates Dems could lose 41 House seats
A new analysis of President Joe Biden’s downward-trending approval ratings finds that his Democratic Party could hemorrhage as many as 41 seats in the House during next year’s midterm elections, or close to as many as then-President Donald Trump’s GOP lost in 2018.
Glen Bolger of Public Opinion Strategies told the Washington Examiner that it is not difficult to tie presidential polling to election outcomes and because Biden’s approval rating continues to decline, he believes the president’s party will lose close to the 41 seats lost during Trump’s midterm, or 34 more than the GOP needs to regain control of the chamber.
This, before states have even redrawn their congressional districts to comport with the 2020 Census.
“As baseball great Yogi Berra famously said, it’s deja vu all over again,” Bolger said as he released his analysis and findings.
Biden’s ratings have been tumbling for months, but his approval took a significant hit following the deadly and turbulent withdrawal from Afghanistan. That said, Bolger noted that he has discovered the Republicans made “significant inroads” with all voting blocs except younger Americans who don’t normally turn out in great numbers on Election Day anyway.
In other words, this could be a blood bath.

Handing control of the House and Senate back to the GOP would essentially tie Joe Biden’s hands.
That would be a huge benefit.
