The midterm elections are coming up fast in November and despite a recent surge by Democrats, it now appears as if several polls are swinging back in the other direction.
With mounting fears of a recession and reports that inflation could rise again, the left-wing regime seems more vulnerable. And the GOP remains convinced it’ll win the House and possibly the Senate.
If recent polling is any indication, Democrats have real cause for concern — two key Senate races aren’t going as planned.
In Pennsylvania, Democrat John Fetterman once enjoyed a double-digit lead over Republican challenger Dr. Mehmet Oz. This led many leftists to believe the race was a slam-dunk for their side.
But amid rising controversy surrounding Fetterman, his lead has diminished considerably.
According to a new survey, Oz is now only about 4 points behind his Democrat opponent, and all signs are pointing toward a continued surge. The race could end up going down to the wire.
It’s a critical election, too, because they’re fighting for the seat vacated by Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA), who will be retiring. If Fetterman takes that seat, Democrats gain the edge.
But that’s not all; here’s what’s happening in another battleground state (via Washington Examiner):
Meanwhile, Sen. Ron Johnson (R) in Wisconsin has pulled ahead of Democratic challenger Mandela Barnes in the polls, leading by 5 points in a new AARP poll.
Other polls have found similar leads, with a recent Fox News survey finding that 44% of Wisconsin voters consider Barnes to be ‘too extreme.’
Both Fetterman and Barnes have been accused of being far too soft on crime, and Republicans called out Barnes’ proposal to eliminate cash bail around the country.
Barnes spokesperson Maddy McDaniel claims the race is “neck-and-neck” but the polls give Johnson a slight edge now, which was not the case a few months ago.
The change in these important races points toward an upswing for Republicans. They only need a net gain of 1 seat in the Senate to gain control, though many experts say Democrats still hold the advantage.
It’s more likely we’ll see a House flip in favor of the GOP, though these reports are showing that Democrats aren’t as safe in the Senate category as they might’ve thought.
Last week, another survey showed that Republicans are the clear leaders in battleground states across America, which isn’t what Democrats hoped to see with midterms now only about 6 weeks away.
And if the newest economic reports are still grim, expect the left-wingers to have difficulty in maintaining control in D.C.
- Democrat candidates have lost a lot of ground in 2 battleground states: PA and WI.
- John Fetterman once held a double-digit lead over Dr. Mehmet Oz, but that lead has shrunk to around 4.
- In WI, Johnson and Barnes are virtually tied, though some polls have now given Johnson the slight edge.
