Democratic congressional campaign committee chairman (DCCC) Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) – the top Democrat tasked with keeping their house majority – said in a televised speech Sunday that he is not surprised Democrats receive low polls on generic ballots less. than a year from the midterm elections, where Democrats risk losing the majority in the House of Representatives.
Maloney was asked by the host at News 12 Westchester’s Power & Politics if he was worried that Democrats would get low polls and be beaten by Republicans on the generic ballot – and asked respondents who they would vote for in the election – by ten points in some cases.
“I’m not surprised,” Maloney said. He argued that polls “stabilize for the Democrats,” and did not address why they have begun to show Republicans forward when Democrats have typically led in the generic polls.
In his response, Maloney blamed the “harsh political environment out there” from the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic. He said Americans are “frustrated” that the coronavirus pandemic has lasted so long. In addition, Maloney acknowledged that “prices have risen”, including gas and grocery prices.
The host also referred to the aftermath of the election in Virginia and New Jersey, where newly elected Gov. Glenn Younkin (R), newly elected Gov. Winsome Sears (R) and Republicans who had chosen to vote turned state house in Virginia. At the same time, New Jersey incumbent Governor Phil Murphy (D) almost also lost to a Republican challenger.
Recently, as the host mentioned, Republicans have dominated in the generic polls. Several polls have shown Republicans beating Democrats in a generic vote ahead of the election when respondents say who they would choose to represent them as Democrats continue to adopt party-political agenda items, such as the infrastructure package and the Reconciliation Act. A generic poll by RealClearPolitics showed that Republicans led for the first time since 2014.
Next year, all 435 members of the House are up for election, and Republicans only need to gather five seats to pick up the majority in the House of Representatives after the midterm period.
So far, 18 Democrats have officially decided to suspend parliament – from either resigning or running for another position, such as the Senate or in a local or state election – and have left their seats open for battle. This gives Republican Republicans more chances to gain five seats to gain a majority and retire House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as the speaker, since 18 is more than three times as many seats as Republicans need.
