Red Wave or Red Ripple? – Americans Are Torn!
Many Republicans are beginning to worry about the midterm elections coming ahead. This is because many analysts who were previously confident the Republicans would win their campaigns have been forecasting a win by the Democrats.
Rick Tyler, a Republican strategist and analyst said in an interview that there is lacking enthusiasm among the party and that the polls back that belief up. Republicans are barely two points ahead in generic polls at this time, which is a long shot from the six-point lead they used to have.
RealClearPolitics averages of polls also show a 4.8-point slip for Republicans from April until now. In contrast in 2010, the GOP was leading with a four to six-point advantage on similar polls regarding winning Congress.
The Republican Party’s Marc Molinaro has been sticking to the party’s key topics on inflation, which still appear to be at the top of the worries for most Americans. However, the Democratic party is focusing on topics like abortion, which has been a hot topic since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade earlier this summer.
Former GOP Sen. Rick Santorum (Pa.) also warned on Thursday that republicans would need to start paying more attention to shift the tide so that a red wave can happen. He also noted that the current polls don’t support the idea of a red wave. Currently, the Democrats are working hard to bring the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade and the FBI’s raid into the Trump estate in Mar-a-Lago to the forefront, seemingly in an attempt to bring light to the negatives of Republicans – whom they have dubbed extremists.
