A surprising new poll out of New Hampshire shows Chuck Schumer is in big trouble this fall
Chuck Schumer is facing the political fight of his life to hang on to control of the Senate after November.
Time is running out to turn things around.
But a surprising new poll out of New Hampshire shows Chuck Schumer is in big trouble this fall.
With 50 Democrats in the Senate, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is defending a razor-thin majority in November.
Republicans only need to flip one seat to take back the Upper Chamber and oust Senator Schumer from power, leaving him no room for error in the upcoming Midterm elections.
Joe Biden’s failed Presidency is a disaster and is dragging down Democrats across the border.
And it’s now starting to show in states traditionally controlled by Democrats.
Even though New Hampshire contains pockets of libertarian-minded voters, the Granite State is considered a blue state, with Joe Biden defeating Donald Trump 52.71% to 45.36% in 2020.
Senator Maggie Hassan (D-NH) is one of the Senate Democrats up for re-election in November.
New Hampshire State Senate President Chuck Morse, General Don Bolduc – a highly decorated Army veteran – and former Londonderry Town Manager Kevin Smith are the Republicans running for the opportunity to unseat Senator Hassan in November.
And a new poll by Data for Progress just gave Senator Chuck Schumer a reason to worry about losing New Hampshire this fall.
The poll showed all three Republican candidates within striking distance of defeating Hassan in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup.
In a race between Morse and Hassan, the sitting Senator drew 49% of the response, while 46% of survey participants said they would back Morse, the founder of Fresh Water Farms, a nursery, florist, and garden center.
Bolduc drew 45% of the total response versus Hassan’s 49%, and garnered the support of 89% of Republicans polled.
The poll also found Smith trailing Hassan by just four points, 49% to 45%.
This is bad news for Chuck Schumer.
Joe Biden’s failed Presidency leaves Democrats with zero accomplishments to help them make the case to voters in November.
Democrats were hoping to use Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) January 6 witch hunt to paint Republicans as “insurrectionists” in the minds of voters ahead of the Midterms.
But polls show that effort failed, as voters are far more concerned with the economy and high gas prices than they are about January 6.
They then hoped to use the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade to mobilize and fire up their base.
But just like the January 6 plan, that effort also failed, with Democrats only looking like extremists to most voters who don’t support abortion up until death.
Senator Schumer only has a few months to figure out a way to save his majority.
And right now, it is not looking very hopeful for Democrats.
