Politico 2022 ELECTIONS

Biden predicts Democrats will turn the tide, despite polls
In recent weeks, surveys have shown Republicans gaining in key Senate races.

*also there is no inflation but if there is it's only transitory

*Congress passed his student loan forgiveness by a few votes

*if you get vaccinated you won't get covid

it would take a major event ( like the fed saying inflation is over and cutting interest rates) to turn the tide of the polls
now. the democrats peaked too early, in summer.

my guess is the polls are just starting to see the tip of the iceberg, looks like some folks are just whistling past the graveyard.

my guess is you’re right. Speaker Pelosi apparently thinks the democrats are going to win unanimously, she can’t believe anyone would vote for republicans

keep talking, lady. Keep talking.

The question of midterms flipping is not shocking. It happens 99% of the time the only question is how far and if itís both houses

Because if dems keep the Senate and Republicans take the house with a min majority. Not much is going to change

True, the opposition party just about always picks up seats. But sometimes it's a lot more extreme than other times.

99% of the time, the NY governors race isn't polling to be a close race. 99% of the time, polling doesn't show that Hispanics are making a meaningful shift to the right.

Didi you hear MSNBC's explanation for why Hispanics are moving to the right? Because Hispanics hate black people. Can't be any other reason.

Agree, not a ton is likely to change.

seems to be a little confusion in the brandon whitehouse...surprise!

WASHINGTON (Reuters) October 25, 2022 The White House has lowered its earlier optimism about the midterm elections and is now worried that Democrats could lose control of both chambers of Congress, administration officials say.

this is hilarious!

If by chance the usual doesn't happen and the democrats hold either the house or the senate, there will be a tidal wave of election deniers claims of voter fraud. If the house and senate turn red, better hope you aren't to reliant on social security or Medicare, because that's next on the make America great again agenda.

The gop election deniers are all ready setting that table

Liz the biggest Rino in the GOP said this

No one of any party should be voting for people who are election deniers...Kari Lake and Mark Finchem in AZ [are] telling you that they'll only certify an election they agree with. And there's not a much graver threat to democracy than that."

Liz is speaking to people of principal
So the majority of Republicans wonít hear her message . Because Itís not a lie .

The economy has done better under Democrats for the past 40 years

Donít tell that to the people who think the Republicans are going to come to the rescue

They wonít even tell the American voter what horse their going to ride in on or how they plan on doing it ..

Iíve said it before the American voters are only interested in instant gratification.. and they tend to show this idiotically thought process every election

2 years ago they vote republicans out of both houses then trump after 1 term

And now they may vote the same people back into the house and senate .. 2 years later.

All the while expecting different results ..

Itís kinda like we want a new republicans iPhone to do exactly what the old republican one did .

Nothing except trying to steal an election

Silly troll

Senators Ben Ray LujŠn & Chris Van Hollen both had strokes this past yr

Chuck Grassley will be 95 YRS OLD by the end of his next term

Nothing Herschel Walker says makes sense

Trump shows unmistakable signs of mental decline

Why is the media exclusively #^&#^&#^&#^&ting on Fetterman?

Well we all know polls have been wrong, if you want to look at something favorable for democrats, itís record numbers of early voting. Itís well known the overwhelming majority of those are democrats.

thatís a good sign for democrats.

does record early voting in GA tell you anything about the validity of the lefts claims that the state is engaged in voter suppression? Itís the cornerstone of Abramsí campaign, and the data doesnít quite seem
to support those claims.

It canít be that itís all a lie for political gain, can it?

people that vote early are unlikely to change their mind anyway...we all now these elections hinge on the undecided....

some exit pols are saying that is not necessarily the case this year, early voting not as one sided as it normally is.

Job numbers up, growth up, stock market up, early voting up, not sure I’d believe those polls and red wave predictions. But history does predict there will be a flip, not to long before we will know.

Assailant shouted ĎWhere is Nancy?í in break-in at speakerís home, attack on Paul Pelosi

This is a classic representation of todayís GOP and their cowardice and unwillingness to tell the Truth to their constituents

And the right will be yelling itís a false flag operation.

a guy canvassing for marco rubio was savagely beaten this week, broken jaw and internal injuries. story is ignored. is this representative of today’s democrat party? the shooting of steve Scalia? The threat to Kavanaugh?

or is there some reason why only this incident matters, none of the others?

this criminal is going to get treated a lot differently than those who attack normal
civilians…

also worth noting that police fled to the scene, saw the criminal attacking Mr Pelosi with a hammer, and with no regard to potential
harm to themselves they ran towards the attacker, tackled him, disarmed him.

The police are the enemy, let’s defund them.

Mr Pelosi is expected to make a full recovery thank god, and the atttacker is caught.

sure. and the person who raised someone who nearly beat an innocent person to death, is obviously credible.

is that another made up quote?

Coming soon: "It's outrageous that anybody would hold me responsible for this heinous act just because I starred in a campaign ad firing hundreds of rounds from a machine gun at a photo of Nancy Pelosi."

The story wasn't ignored. It was on all the news. The guy was a neo nazi who never mentioned he was canvassing for Rubio and attacked for that reason UNTIL AFTER Rubio claimed that.
