Over the last year, Democrats have watched their approval bottom out. They had control of the House, the Senate, and the White House. But what did they do with this golden opportunity? Sit back and let Biden trigger one crisis after another. The results have been devastating to Americans—and the left’s future prospects.
Polling has not been kind to Democrats. It looks like they will have a tough reelection battle in November. Add to that the fact that congressional maps in many states will not be favorable to the left. Many House members have already announced they are leaving. And Newt Gingrich has made a stunning prediction.
From The Daily Wire:
[F]ormer Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said, “You could easily be above 30 retirements before this is over.” […]
“And I think these Democrats are looking forward and thinking, ‘What is this going to be like if I’m in the minority?’ And it’s just not any fun,” he continued. “And so I think Kevin’s almost certainly right; you could easily be above 30 retirements before this is over.”
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy predicted that at least 30 Democrats will retire before the 2022 midterms. Gingrich said that it could “easily” be more than 30 Democrats leaving the House before the elections. He pointed to the terrible way Pelosi has been handling the House. Gingrich insisted people are not happy with her.
He went on to talk about the many issues facing Americans. Gingrich urged Republicans to run on the issues Americans are most worried about. That includes the open border, threats from China, and most of all the economy. Biden and the Democrats failed on helping the economy recover after Trump set us on a good course.
If so many Democrats retire before the midterms, it will be nearly impossible for them to hold onto their majority. As it stands 22 Democrats have announced they will not be running for reelection in the House. That puts their chances are keeping their slim majority very low. But if more are to leave, it could be a certainty.
Republicans, on the other hand, are working overtime to recruit candidates, raise money, and connect with voters. Just last week, California conservative Larry Elder launched a PAC aimed at winning big in 2022. From all appearances, Republicans are energized and ready to win. Meanwhile, Democrats appear flat, defeated, and uninspired.
- Newt Gingrich predicted over 30 Democrats could retire before the midterms.
- If that were to happen, Republicans could win the House by a large margin.
- Democrats are struggling as 22 congress members are already left.
