It Sucks To Be a Democrat Right Now

If you’re a Democrat, things are going very, very badly for you. And it’s not going to get better. 

According to a recent McLaughlin and Associates study, 65 percent of likely voters believe that the United States is on the wrong track. That’s hardly surprising considering the multitude of poor decisions the fascists in charge have made since taking power.

The McLaughlin study also showed that Joe Biden’s approval rating has crumbled to 41 percent,  which is high compared to Quinippiac’s 33 percent. NBC poll numbers were so bad that noted corporate propagandist and regime cheerleader, Chuck Todd, who masquerades as a journalist for that network, admitted that Biden’s numbers put Democrats in the shellacking” range for the midterms. Todd noted that the overwhelming majority of voters think Biden is “no longer seen as competent and effective.” Of course, it’s been many decades since anyone in their right mind saw Biden as anything resembling competent and effective. But it is noteworthy that others are catching on.

For some perspective on how bad Biden’s numbers are for the fall, in 2010 Obama’s approval rating was down in the mid-40s. In those midterms Democrats lost 63 seats in the House and seven in the Senate. Now take Biden’s numbers, which are anywhere from five to 12 points worse than Obama’s and you get the picture. In short, Grandpa Dementia is the proverbial albatross around the necks of Democrats who were already wearing concrete boots and standing on the edge of a watery abyss. 

But while everyone is focused on the federal elections—and with Trafalgar’s Congressional Generic poll showing Republicans with a nearly 14 point lead, it does look like a wipe out at that level—we shouldn’t forget the state and local level opportunities this fall. In the 2010 midterms Democrats lost 680 state legislative seats and six governorships as Republicans also picked up six state attorney general races and six secretary of state races. 

In short, Biden’s terrible numbers and a midterm wipeout at the federal level have implications at the state level as well for Democrats in 2022. There are 36 gubernatorial races with key pick up opportunities in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania among others. There are 30 attorney general races, with Wisconsin and Michigan also having pickup opportunities and  27 secretary of state races this year, with key pickup opportunities as well in Wisconsin and Michigan.  

We should also be mindful of the parents’ revolt at the school board level. Parents of all political stripes have had enough. That is the real story of what took place in Virginia: Republican, Democratic, and independent parents all revolted against the school boards’ insanity of lockdowns, mandates, refusal to teach advanced courses, and CRT. That dynamic is playing out all across the country and with gale-force political winds likely pushing these issues in the fall, we would do well to make sure thousands of right-thinking parents are actually running for those school board positions. 

Many Americans are realizing how much power has been taken away from us. The dynamics of 2022 and the current political climate give us a chance to start taking that power back if only we will choose our leaders wisely and put political power in the hands of people who want to protect our freedoms rather than strip them away. 

If ever there was a year for freedom-loving people to run for office, 2022 is that year at all levels of government—federal, state and local. Much like Ed Durr, the trucker who beat the New Jersey state Senate president in 2021, there will be people who win this fall simply because they put their names on the ballot and are not “not them.” So let’s make sure we bury the unAmerican Left this year and then turn our sights to taking back the White House in 2024.
