With the 2022 midterm elections right around the corner, everyone is wondering if Democrats will maintain their slim majority in the House and Senate. Others look forward to 2024.
Currently, numerous polls show President Joe Biden’s approval ratings at an all-time low, and Vice President Kamala Harris doesn’t appear to be faring much better.
That’s why one pollster believes that if former POTUS Donald Trump ran right now, it wouldn’t be much of a contest.
For months now, Trump has been teasing a possible second run for the White House. Recently, he even said the only thing that would stop him from running is a “bad call from a doctor.”
It also seems like Trump’s popularity hasn’t waned much in 2021. If anything, it might’ve risen.
Then you factor in the Biden administration’s difficult situation (from inflation to Afghanistan), and some believe Democrats are in serious trouble when midterms roll around.
Trump pollster John McLaughlin agrees with this analysis, and adds that the “radical left” has also contributed to Trump’s recent surge.
And if the Democrats aren’t careful, the far-left could also result in their losing control of D.C. — not merely the House or Senate, but of the White House as well.
Sunday on New York WABC 770 AM radio’s ‘The Cats Roundtable,’ Donald Trump pollster John McLaughlin said the former president would beat either President Joe Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris in a ‘landslide.’
McLaughlin said it would be an “electoral landslide” for Trump simply because Biden is a very different candidate.
Compared to his running as a “moderate Democrat” in the 2020 presidential election, McLaughlin believes the President is now “being run by radicals,” and this is damaging the entire party.
On top of that, McLaughlin says Biden is basically “doing things he said he wasn’t going to do,” and America is taking notice.
As for the current numbers, he said Trump is ahead of Harris 49 to 46 right now, and we’ve seen approval ratings for Biden as low as 37 percent. So the trends do seem clear.
The radical wing of the Democratic Party is holding the rest of their party hostage. And the voters aren’t going to stand for it anymore.
It’s gone way too far, and people want to get back to some degree of sanity, and they are going to take it out at the polls.
He isn’t the first source or pollster to say the radical left is tearing apart the Democratic Party.
We’re seeing lots of infighting in the party, and certain Democrat leaders – like Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) – continue to push back against radical polices and legislation.
Economic woes also haunt the Biden administration, as the general cost of living has risen for many throughout the nation.
This doesn’t bode well for Democrats in future elections, though it remains to be seen if Donald Trump will run again. If he does, it will likely be a very different race than it was in 2020.
Between now and then, Biden and Harris will have to see a recovery in their approval numbers, and America will have to be in a more stable position.
Otherwise, Trump might in fact land a second term.
