#3 Red State discusses a recent Gallup Poll:

On top of that, the recent Gallup poll is showing a huge shift toward the Republicans in party preference.

However, the general stability for the full-year average obscures a dramatic shift over the course of 2021, from a nine-percentage-point Democratic advantage in the first quarter to a rare five-point Republican edge in the fourth quarter.


The GOP has held as much as a five-point advantage in a total of only four quarters since 1991. The Republicans last held a five-point advantage in party identification and leaning in early 1995, after winning control of the House of Representatives for the first time since the 1950s. Republicans had a larger advantage only in the first quarter of 1991, after the U.S. victory in the Persian Gulf War led by then-President George H.W. Bush.

Democrats start in a bad position with being the party holding the White House, which usually is a disadvantage in the midterms. But when there are a lot of retirements or people leaving going into the midterms, that makes it even worse. In 2018, when the Democrats flipped the House, Democrats won 41 seats after Republicans had 34 people retiring or seeking other offices. So that’s a very bad sign of what looks like a massive red wave coming.

Right now, Democrats hold a very slim lead on seats in the House. Republicans only need to win five seats to take the majority.

As Raj points out, some of those retirements are in safe Democrat districts. And there are Republican retirements as well, not all of which are in safe R districts. Interesting times, my dears!

#5 we are missing their ultimate objective & grand plan.
"Righteousness" defined as suppressing 'supremacy' and 'rayciss' and enforcing correct thought and speech.

Any questions?
