Democrats find themselves in the eye of a perfect storm that will ravage their Washington, D.C., ranks in the 2022 elections.
Based on Census data, residents fled poorly run Blue States by the millions and that opened the door for Republican strongholds to gain Congressional seats until at least 2030. Adding insult to injury, Joe Biden’s failure to control the U.S. southern border resulted in the worst humanitarian crisis in the country’s history. And if voters aren’t outraged by Biden herding children into cages, his economic policies eliminated good-paying jobs and have ushered in inflation. Doubling down on disastrous out-of-touch policies, Biden’s handlers pressured him to call for higher taxes.
“I’m going to tell you right now, and I’ll say this out loud, and I’ll bet McCarthy’s house on it. Any vulnerable Democrat who votes to increase taxes, corporate or otherwise, will lose their election in November of 2022,” Rep. Tom Emmer, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, reportedly said. “They can certainly undo tax cuts and change things, but they do so at their peril.”
Voters are expected to stick a fork in Democrat rule in the mid-term elections because they’re disgusted after less than four months. Panicked left-wing politicians have every reason to run scared.
Five of the seven hardest hit by the 2020 Census chose Biden over former President Donald Trump in last year’s election. The biggest losers include California, Illinois, Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania. But four of the six states gaining U.S. Representatives continue to support conservative candidates. Texas earned two while Florida, Montana, and North Carolina all picked up one. The balance of power in the House was already tilting Republican due to the flagrant disregard of voter will. The realignment will certainly drive a stake through the Democratic Party’s lust for power and that’s why they are jumping ship.
In the first quarter of 2021, five incumbent Democrats prematurely announced they would not seek re-election in 2022. This list reportedly includes Charlie Crist of Florida and Tim Ryan of Ohio who plan to seek safer offices. Three Democrats simply saw the handwriting on the wall that they will not survive redistricting or the rising animosity over radical Democrat policies. Others are weighing pivoting away from House bids with the understanding mid-term elections traditionally favor the party not in the majority. But perhaps more terrifying are the onslaught of Biden Administration disasters.
Democrats barely eked out a slim majority in 2020 after upwards of 48 Republicans decided to return to the private sector. Even with that leverage, upstart Republican women flipped a series of Democrat-held seats, prompting former Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chair Rep. Cheri Bustos to call it quits. The Illinois congresswoman ranked among Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s top lieutenants, but almost lost her bid in 2020. She’s apparently cutting her losses a year and a half away from the next election. At least six Democrats are hopelessly stuck in districts Mr. Trump won in 2020. The GOP also unveiled a map that indicates 47 Democrat incumbents appear relatively easy to beat. More Democrat incumbents are expected to throw in the towel by year’s end.
“We’re on the other side of things now, so yeah, there are some reasons to be wary about next year,” a Democrat operative recently admitted.
