The majority of voters believe that Republicans will take control of Congress in the 2022 midterms.
According to a new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports, 60% of likely U.S. voters believe “it is at least somewhat likely that Republicans will pick up the five seats they need to regain control of the U.S. House of Representatives next year, including 35% who think it’s Very Likely.”
30% of voters don’t believe that it’s likely the Republicans will retake the House in 2022, and 10% are unsure.
The Rasmussen Reports provided some context to the number of House seats Democrats picked up in recent years and how many seats Republican will need to flip to gain control of House:
Four years ago, when Democrats needed to gain 25 House seats to take control of Congress, less than half of voters thought it was likely they could do so. Democrats won a House majority in the 2018 midterms, but lost 11 seats in 2020, so the GOP would need to “flip” only five seats to take back control in 2022.
Republican are much more confident with their party’s odds in the 2022 midterms. 76% believe that it’s at least somewhat likely the GOP will retake control of the House and 52% believe it’s “Very Likely”.
47% of Democrats believe that it’s at least somewhat likely Republicans will attain a House majority in 2022, with 22% who believe that it’s “Very Likely.”
For independent voters, 56% think that it’s at least somewhat likely Republicans will take the House in the 2022 midterms, with 29% who believe it’s “Very Likely.”
With the Democrat embracing radical politics from ethnic grievance causes to socialism, voters are becoming disenchanted with the Democrat Party. There’s a strong tradition distrusting one party rule in the US, and voters will likely pull the lever for Republicans this time around.
Leading up to this election, America First nationalists should work hard to push for populist candidates that replace or at least beat neoconservatives to the punch. The 2022 midterms are the perfect opportunity for populists to set the tone for the new Republican Party.
