Two longtime Democratic congressmen will announce their retirements this upcoming week.
Representative Mike Doyle of Pennsylvania and David Price of North Carolina are retiring.
This move diminishes the hopes of many Democrats who want to keep the House majority after next year’s midterm elections.
68-year-old Mike Doyle was first elected in 1994. He is “a close ally of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi,” Politico reports.
81-year-old David Price won his seat in 1996.
As Joe Biden’s polling numbers are in total free-fall, pollsters say it’s easy to predict upcoming election outcomes.
Public Opinion Strategies pollster Glen Bolger confirmed that they can track election outcomes based on presidential polling with close accuracy.
With Biden’s sinking approval, Democrats are likely to lose about the 41 seats Trump lost, Washington Examiner reports.
This is 34 more seats than the GOP needs to take control of the House of Representatives.
Take a look at the projections:
Polls reveal that many Americans are furious with Joe Biden, and rightfully so.
Biden is forcing private employees to receive the coronavirus vaccine via a shot in the arm. This “new federal vaccine requirement” impacts as many as 100 million Americans.
Biden also insulted the American people by saying they’re stupid if they choose not to receive the vaccine.
“You’re not nearly as smart as I thought you were,” Biden said to those who were unvaccinated in July of 2021.
Following Biden’s disastrous handling of the U.S. troop withdrawal, the catastrophe at the southern border, and the surge in coronavirus cases, polls show how the American people feel about his job performance.
Biden’s approval rating has been in decline since May. More Americans disapprove of Biden (49 percent) than at any other point in his presidency, according to a YouGov survey. The survey was conducted between Sept. 4th through the 7th.
It also found that only 39 percent of American adults approve of his job performance. Just one week, this number dropped by six points.
Now there’s even worse news for Democrats as a red wave will likely during mid-term elections.
Democrats reportedly have hope to turn the situation around based on their plan to significantly increase social welfare and infrastructure spending.
Democrats are looking to implement the largest single spending bill in history, according to The Wall Street Journal. Under the guise of “social spending,” Joe Biden is pushing for a massive $3.5 trillion spending bill.
Jonathan Zogby, of Zogby Analytics, said voters might change their tune if the president’s “big-spending bills deliver projects back home.”
“The big problem Republicans face is can Biden and the Democrats get their monstrous infrastructure bill passed, which for them can buy enough time to provide more stimulus and pork to keep the economic balloon inflated. That would give Democrats the edge to retain majorities,” Zogby said.
“If for some reason they cannot pass a big infrastructure bill, Republicans can focus on a not-so-great economy and Biden’s vaccine mandates, which threaten freedoms and hurt small businesses,” he added.
“Overall, it’s close, and I see Republicans with more of an advantage right now to win both chambers — but not by huge amounts,” Zogby said.
However, this spending also comes with the “biggest tax increase in history,” Newsmax reported. Democrats have reportedly finalized their proposal for $2.9 trillion in tax hikes.
It’s certainly the largest tax increase in decades, which is meant to pay for the Democrats’ higher spending in their ‘reconciliation’ package.
The proposal is expected to include raising the corporate tax rate to 26.5% from 21%. The plan is expected to enact a 3-percentage-point surtax on individual income above $5 million.
As history has proven over and over again, the Democrats’ proposal for taxes and spending will undoubtedly have a negative impact by discouraging Americans from working, saving, investing, and innovating.
