Midterms don't look good for Democrats

They look even worse before Trump's tax returns and White House records finally get released to the public and we find out a ton from the 1/6 committee that blows a hole in the entire election. One thing to keep in mind is the midterms are a year away and a lot can happen between now and then

4. who knows what would happen if the election was today

But between Biden's leadership and whatever horrible crap is found out by the 1/6 committee, it may turn out a lot better than anybody is expecting at this current moment one year away.

11. I do...I spoke to Joe Crowley, former Queens Democratic Chair.

His view is that if House races were this year, we would have lost several Long Island seats.

Multiply that by the other States where we hold suburban House seats.

20. I'm not sure about suburbs across the country

Here in Arizona people that live in suburbs are not Trump like nationalists. Andy Biggs who represents a suburban district was polling badly and most voters in that district felt he should resign if he was involved in 1/6. My current suburban district is currently represented by Greg Stanton and I doubt he will lose and my district was always represented by Democrats such as Krysten Sinema before Stanton.

Not sure about New York but I doubt a 1% loss in a governor race in Virginia has a lot to do with the trends in Arizona. We have Andy Biggs, Paul Gosar, and the fraudit so 1/6 still matters here somewhat.

3. Yep.

I'm starting to have a feeling that the 1/6 committee is going to be a major force at some point, possibly not too long before the election.

6. Stop thinking the general public cares about 1/6

Instead pass BBB, work on promoting wage growth while trying to keep inflation in check, and find a few other ideas with mass appeal. My suggestion is unleashing the FTC and FBI on all the awful phone scam calls.

But the last sentence you wrote sounds genius: A unifying action that the GOP will have a hard time opposing

13. 1/6 wasn't good for my PTSD symptoms

I also had fears of a possible civil war in the future with all the right wing domestic terrorists.

If 1/6 was done by the left the right would never let it go but I could never vote for Republicans because of 1/6 and have been donating more than usual to Mark Kelly so Iím doing my part to help us win the midterms but 1/6 was very bad for my disability.

8. By next year, I expect Covid will be under control, anti-vaxxers will have seen the light (or died)

The infrastructure plan will be creating jobs and people will start to see progress on their streets and in their neighborhoods. Electric vehicles will be affordable and POPULAR.
Yeah, we'll probably still be trying to put TFG in prison; but many of the worst offenders of his administration will be behind bars.
It won't be a perfect democracy - but it will be better.

9. it looks great if you don't watch cable

and when reading posts, think about what you're reading, where did it come form, who is saying it, why are they saying it, how are they are saying it. Usually calms the inkling of fear being dangled in front of me.

19. Perhaps not

I have mixed feelings about the whole thing. On one hand the current political environment is probably not conducive to keeping both houses if the election were today. On the other hand, the election isn't today and there's already a lot of positive events developing in our favor. As they say: time will tell.

21. Don't believe the hype.

Our lying scumbag corporate media has been peddling the false narrative since Election Day last week that the Democratic Party will be in dire straits come the midterm elections next year. They've buttressed this lie with jive ass poll data from various "reliable sources", which we know is all laughably false BS.

Just like their blatantly dishonest attempts to have last week's election results perceived as an unmitigated catastrophe for the Democratic Party (It was far from that nationwide), their predictions about next year's midterms will be turn out wrong as well.

Lies, lies, and more lies. That's all our MSM produces.

22. Biden needs to get his PR staff going full throttle

No, we can't rely on the corporate media to tell everyone what Biden is doing. He's done some really good things for this country, but his approval ratings keep going down. Biden needs to "sell" the people on what he's done and especially why it's good for them. A good marketing campaign is what he needs now.

that will never change hands.
We just have to hold what we have
it can be done, dont think it cant.
Properly responding to nonsense like CRT and non issues will be the key.

26. Huge break though when Sununu (who would have won IMHO) turned down

running against Hassan in NH. Ayotte, the Rethuglet 2nd best chance (and an ex Senator) also said no.

Bolduc will perhaps be her opponent. The only downside is that IF Hassan does still lose, Bolduc is FAR more of a RWNJ than either Sununu or Ayotte.

27. It all depends on the level of GOP election fraud. It's SOP for them.


That's why Trump freaked out when he lost. He thought it was in the bag.
He was probably assured of that by GOP operatives.

Remember when Trump kept screeching after the election that he got "more votes than any other
Republican president in history !" ? I suspect he was actually freaking out because the standard GOP election fraud didn't work this time.
