Dems got two years to give people to vote for them now that they got rid of Trump.
Trump ain’t on the ballot in 2022 so that extra 5% of the crazies who voted for him won’t show up either.. Bet that
democrats are also in good position to take the senate there (or expand seats if we win the GA runoffs). so we could have a situation where control of senate and house flips
they won’t need them if democratic turnout is at 2010 or 2014 levels. midterms are usually bad for the party in the white house
we will see... but like I said trump was the main even, gop will try to replicate a trump like character and the crazy’s won’t go for it because it ain’t trump himself..
GOp already fracturing and half of them moving to newsmax... Fox will barely have clout amongst the gop.. let’s see how it play out
@19 No Covid that post reply was for you
But the Dems that showed up in 2018 and 2020 who were voting against Trump might not show up either. Midterms is when Republicans usually turnout more than Dems in a normal election cycle.
Unfortunately you’re being highly optimistic based on the circumstances. They would need to need both seats in order to tie, which likely isn’t going to happen. Even one for Republicans is enough for the majority.
Runoffs tend to favor Republicans because of low voter turnout. That’s how it’s always been.
yeah two years is a long way away. i hope you’re right and trump causes some party cleavage
Both parties have their own set of problems now. Democrats are fighting in house and placing blame for their election failures when they need to be focusing on those two runoffs in Georgia.
im saying they’re in good position to take the senate in 2022, not this year. the map is good for them in 2022
It’s not as Trump isn’t running so you won’t have loads of people running to the polls just to vote him out. They won’t be able to use Trump as an excuse to excite people into voting. You literally had people against Trump, but still go Republican on the rest of the ballot. People just wanted him out by any means.
They actually need to have a plan and they can’t do shyt as long as Mitch controls the Senate. That’s why election cycle was their best opportunity to get him out of the paint.
And they turnout more during runoffs, which doesn’t bode well for those Georgia seats.
Good thing for Biden and the Democrats is that most signs point to an economy that will be at full steam by the end of 2021.
Tamping down COVID while providing a fairly quick economy recovery could do wonders for the party's chances. Making predictions this far out might be a little premature.
