Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer thought they had a chance to hang on to power in the midterm election.
Those hopes just got dashed.
And this devastating new poll just showed Democrats they are doomed to defeat in November.
The AARP commissioned a poll of the 56 most competitive battleground districts.
Trump pollster Tony Fabrizio and Joe Biden’s pollster John Anzalone conducted the survey.
And there is no sugarcoating the results for the Democrats.
In the most critical swing districts in America, Republicans hold a four-point lead on the generic ballot question of which party voters want to see in the majority.
Joe Biden’s approval rating sits at a toxic 37 percent in these districts.
A new poll of the 56 most competitive battleground House districts found that Republicans hold a four-point advantage — 46% to 42% — on the generic congressional ballot.
Why it matters: Despite several recent polls showing incremental gains by Democrats, the reality is that the political environment remains favorable for Republicans.
Driving the news: The survey, conducted by Trump pollster Tony Fabrizio and Biden pollster John Anzalone for the AARP, indicates former President Trump is on average significantly more popular than President Biden in these swing districts.
Biden’s job approval sits at just 37%, with 61% disapproving of his performance.
50% of voters approve of Trump — higher than in other recent polls — while 49% disapprove.
In another giant red flag for Democrats in 2024, Donald Trump holds a 50 percent job approval rating in these 56 swing districts.
This is another data point – along with a recent Emerson poll showing Trump leading Biden 46 to 43 percent – that the corporate media and establishment Republicans are lying when they claim Donald Trump cannot win the 2024 election.
Trump and the GOP hold the advantage over Biden because voters judge them better to handle the issues they care about.
This poll shows swing voters rate Republicans higher on the ability to deal with the economy, rising gas prices, inflation, crime, immigration, and guns.
Some corporate media hacks latched on to polls showing the generic ballot question tied as evidence voters were able to separate their dislike for Joe Biden from the Democrat Party writ large.
But those surveys are still using registered voter models and as the polls showed in 2020, pollsters completely missed the surge of support for Republicans at the congressional level.
In 2020 pollsters predicted Democrats would gain 15 to 20 congressional seats.
However, Republicans won all 27 toss-up races and actually picked up 14 seats.
The AARP poll is the canary in the coal mine showing that voters in the districts that will decide the 2022 election are shifting towards the Republicans.
And that spells a landslide defeat for Democrats in November.
