Some liberal media outlets are still clinging to the idea that Democrats won’t face a reckoning in November.
Others are downplaying the midterms by suggesting that the Democrats will only lose the House by a small margin.
The liberal outlet Politico, on the other hand, is saying that the Democrats are going to lose big and that Republicans will take back the House and the Senate.
Breitbart News reports:
Politico Predicts Republicans Will Dominate Midterms, Reclaim House and Senate
Republicans will dominate the midterms elections in November, reclaiming the House and Senate, Politico predicted Tuesday.
While it is less of a surprise that Republicans are predicted to reclaim the House, it is more surprising the Senate is projected to “lean” Republican. If both forecasts come true, the Republicans will have an opportunity to conduct oversight and investigate the origins of the pandemic, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the invasion at the southern border, and whether or not President Biden should be impeached.
Politico predicts the House will “likely” flip to Republicans. The projections contend that 21 contested seats lean blue, while 16 seats lean Republican. The forecast includes 24 toss-up seats that do not favor any party.
The prediction includes state redistricting, where the GOP will likely break even in a process it was expected to dominate. Redistricting will impact the 221 House seats the Democrats hold, and the 209 seats the Republicans represent. There are five vacancies.
In the Senate, the prediction holds the higher chamber “leans” Republican. The Senate is currently split 50/50. If the GOP nets just one Senate seat, they would reclaim the Senate with a narrow majority. The seats that Republicans have an opportunity to reclaim are in Arizona, Georgia, and Nevada. Republicans will look to hold Pennsylvania’s vacant seat while defending the GOP seat in Wisconsin.
If Republicans do win back the House and the Senate, we will witness a full-blown Democrat/media meltdown.
They will have good reasons to be distressed.
