This jaw-dropping new poll will keep Democrats awake at night
Democrats hoped the calendar turning to 2022 would also change their political fortunes.
No Party ever suffered through a more disastrous first year of a Presidency than Democrats and Joe Biden.
But this jaw-dropping new poll will keep Democrats awake at night.
The single best indication of how the Midterm elections will go for the incumbent Party is the President’s job approval rating.
Joe Biden’s average approval ratings in the RealClearPolitics polling average is 40.6 percent.
And the latest IBB/TIPP poll showed just 38 percent of Americans approved of Biden’s job performance as President, with 48 percent disapproving.

On the day of the 2018 Midterm elections, Donald Trump’s approval rating was 45 percent.
Republicans lost 40 seats in the House of Representatives that year.
In 2010, Barack Obama’s approval ratings was 46 percent on November 1.
That fall, Democrats suffered the biggest landslide defeat in the history of the Midterm elections.
In what became known as the Tea Party wave, Republicans won 63 seats in the House of Representatives and six seats in the Senate.
Republicans also won the Governor’s mansion in key states like Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida.
The GOP also scored decisive wins at the state-legislature level that allowed them to draw district maps at the state and Congressional level that would define the political battlegrounds for the next decade.
Joe Biden’s approval numbers are far below that of Barack Obama and Donald Trump at a time when both lost control of one House of Congress.
Democrats are staring down the barrel of a wave election that could surpass anything an American political Party has ever suffered.
That’s why, in an effort to falsely claim that Joe Biden’s leadership led a return to normalcy, Democrat Governors around the country fell all over themselves to rescind their indoor mask mandates.
Multiple pundits noted that no President significantly improved their job approval numbers in a Midterm election year.
Even if the pandemic recedes in the background, Biden is still facing an inflation, crime, and illegal immigration crisis that will linger for months.
Those self-inflicted catastrophes are why Biden’s poll numbers are unlikely to recover.
And that is bad news for Democrats.
