Nancy Pelosi just saw the one poll result that sent a chill down every Democrat’s spine
Democrats have a lot to worry about.
The political environment is quickly turning sour.
And Nancy Pelosi just saw the one poll result that sent a chill down every Democrat’s spine.
Polls have consistently shown Democrats leading Republicans on the generic ballot questions about which party Americans want to see control Congress.
In the years where Republicans rack up big midterm wins – 2010 and 2014 – a Republican lead traditionally does not show up until late in the campaign.
When the GOP picked up double-digit seats, the polls never indicated a Republican lead at all.
That’s why a brand new Quinnipiac poll showing Republicans with a three point lead over Democrats in September 2021 was so shocking.
Just three weeks ago, Democrats led Republicans by four points, indicating a seven point swing towards the GOP in less than one month.
A poll from Quinnipiac University released Tuesday showed that a generic Republican on the ballot is favored to take back the House of Representatives in the midterm elections next year.
Forty-seven percent of the registered voters said they would rather see the Republican Party win control of the House, while only 44 percent of the registered voters said they would want the Democrats. There were also nine percent who did not give an opinion.
However, in September, the results were almost the opposite; 43 percent of registered voters said the Republican Party, while 47 percent said the Democrat party. There were also 11 percent who did not give an opinion.
This is the first time Republicans led Democrats on a generic ballot Quinnipiac poll since 2014.
Coincidentally, in 2014 Republicans swamped Democrats gaining double-digit seats in the House of Representatives and nine in the Senate.
The reality is that Nancy Pelosi’s position as the Speaker of the House is in dire jeopardy come 2022.
