The ideology behind the launch of the coin
According to an ABC-Ipsos poll, President Biden’s job approval ratings depict a declining trend across a range of significant issues, namely crime, gun violence, and economic recovery.
Republicans, on the other hand, now sport a historic 10-point advantage when Americans are questioned as to which party they prefer to control Congress.
In the past 20 years, CNBC and NBC surveys have never registered a double-digit Republican advantage on congressional preference, with the largest lead ever being 4 pints for the GOP.
Voters seem to be looking toward Republican candidates. If midterm elections were held today, 51 percent of registered voters said they would support the Republican candidate. 41 percent said they would back the Democrats. That’s the most considerable margin in favor of Republicans in the poll’s history that began in November 1981.
Democratic strategists continue to insist things will improve by next year. But the numbers illustrate the kind of risk Democrats face in losing their majorities in the House and Senate.
“If the election were tomorrow, it would be an absolute unmitigated disaster for the Democrats,” said Jay Campbell, partner at Hart Research Associates and the Democratic pollster for the survey.
In light of the events above, it is no wonder that the Republicans are counting their chickens way before they’ve hatched.
