House Dems may be in deeper trouble in the midterms than they’ll admit, they are getting crushed in internal polls
Things may be getting worse for the Democrats before they get really awful according to Punchbowl News, which is reporting that Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chair Sean Patrick Maloney told party leaders at a luncheon on Thursday that their candidates are getting crushed by Republicans in battleground districts.
House Democrats are singing a decidedly different tune in public but they are well aware of the poll numbers. According to Punchbowl News, generic Republicans are beating generic Democrats 47 to 39 percent in those districts. Lawmakers, multiple party officials, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee are all said to be ringing the same alarm bells over it.
The shocking margin evidently has Democrats in a righteous panic. Many are frontline Democrats who now reportedly find their positions in great peril.
According to the media outlet, Democrats typically enjoy a three or four-point advantage on the generic ballot. Not this time and that spells bad news for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s razor-thin majority. An eight-point lead could signal a red wave for House Republicans and a major stomping for House Democrats.

Democrats, following in President Joe Biden’s ill-considered footsteps, were allegedly told at the meeting to refer to House Republicans as “MAGA Republicans.” Party leaders delusionally believe that attempting to connect House Republicans to former President Donald Trump will somehow improve their chances of retaining power.
During a caucus-wide briefing held on Tuesday at DCCC headquarters, Democrats were informed that the party’s heavy hitters are now far outpacing Biden’s job approval rating by 21.8 percentage points. The news outlet contends it could be a combination of Biden’s abysmal approval ratings and the strength of House Democrats that explain the number.
“Frontline Democrats’ record of delivering for their communities means they head into November ready to defeat extremist MAGA Republicans, who will have to defend their plan to implement a nationwide abortion ban and their embrace of white supremacist ‘Great Replacement’ theories,” DCCC spokesman Chris Taylor asserted.
The Congressional Leadership Fund has also conducted private polling that shows Biden’s massive unpopularity as well as that of Democrats in general is taking its toll. The PAC polled 16 districts that the president won by an average of eight points. The findings were catastrophic. Biden’s approval rating is eight points underwater and the generic ballot is tied.
New polling from CLF & @DCCC in @PunchbowlNews:
➡️Biden +8 districts are now “tossups”
➡️Biden is -8 in those districts
➡️The average Dem is at only 44% on the ballot
➡️Even DCCC polling has Republicans +8 on the generic ballot
Great work, @SPMaloney! https://t.co/m3aqh1W4bZ pic.twitter.com/JUuABBhXdF

That portends that the seats that Biden won by eight points are now “toss-up” districts, ripe for Republicans to seize. Districts that were polled by the CLF include the seats of Reps. Abigail Spanberger (VA), Kim Schrier (WA), Mike Levin (CA), Kurt Schrader (OR), Angie Craig (MN), Susie Lee (NV), and Jahana Hayes (CT).
In more bad news, 49 percent of voters in the aforementioned districts state that they prefer having a “Republican in Congress to provide a check on Biden, rather than a Democrat to help pass Biden and Pelosi’s agenda,” according to Punchbowl News. “Those candidates garner 42%. The average incumbent Democrat was at 44% in these districts with a 38% favorable rating and 25% unfavorable rating.”
Democrats point to the fact that it is only May and things could change politically, but November is coming up fast and they are running out of time. They seem to feel that the Supreme Court ruling against the landmark abortion case Roe vs. Wade will work in their favor. The polls seem to tell a different story.
