(breitbart) – Bullish Republicans are predicting a midterm election red wave next year could sweep both chambers of Congress and end unified Democrat control in Washington.
The Hill reports the confidence is predicated on a number of factors. Among the things poisoning the electoral well for the Democrats are the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, rising fuel prices, supply chain woes, inflation and deeply unpopular leadership in Washington from President Joe Biden and his deputy Kamala Harris.
The House is viewed by many on both sides of the aisle as most vulnerable to Republican predations, given Democrats’ razor-thin five-seat majority there. However, despite a favorable map for Democrats, the party’s 50-50 majority in that chamber could be toppled too, the report estimates.
