Democrats are reeling.
With just days to go until the midterm elections, disaster appears to be on the horizon.
And now, one shock poll shows that Democrats are floundering on an issue they never thought they could lose.
Joe Biden has a political headache of epic proportions to deal with.
Not only is he still deeply unpopular after two years of gross mismanagement in Washington, D.C., but his Democratic Party is on the verge of getting wiped out in a midterm election wave that could rival even the Tea Party wave of 2010.
And now, yet more devastating news is emerging that could complicate the Democrats’ path to holding onto their majorities in Congress, after one shock poll showed the party is badly trailing on an issue that Joe Biden thought Democrats could never lose.
MSN reports, “Democrats have long been seen as the country’s ‘education party,’ enjoying most voters’ trust on such issues. But public perceptions have shifted since the onset of the pandemic.
“Last year, conservatives secured seats on dozens of school boards across the country on campaigns targeting critical race theory. One poll this summer of likely voters in 62 congressional battleground districts suggests Republicans now have an advantage over Democrats on education.”
The issue of education was once considered more or less a lock for Democrats.
In fact, it was an issue that the Left would routinely use to defeat Republicans in close election races, with the Democrats promising more money for teachers’ unions in order to rally their base and get out the vote.
But now, that strength has turned into a liability, as parents increasingly turn on a party that has long since turned on them.
Democrats have since been exposed for not being pro-education so much as they are pro-teachers’ unions, and union bosses in turn routinely oppose many priorities for parents in exchange for getting political kickbacks from Democrats once they’re in office.
This cycle of grifting taxpayer money while pretending to support “education” has finally begun to come to an end, as parents have caught on to the fact that neither union bosses nor Democrat politicians care much about their children.
In fact, both of these groups worked hand in hand to shut down schools for well over a year, and once parents spoke out about school closures or left-wing indoctrination going on in public schools, Democrat politicians responded by labeling these parents “domestic terrorists.”
“The tide continues to turn in the GOP’s favor as Democrats struggle to mobilize and appeal to voters. And the implications could be vast, including greater privatization of public education, less federal involvement in schools and more restrictions on what students read and learn,” adds MSN. “Democrats, meanwhile, have struggled to resonate with parents, in some cases altogether alienating them. That’s been especially true with their ambivalence on school choice and allegiance with teachers’ unions, whose push for extended closures during the pandemic have made them especially unpopular among conservatives.”
This shift has resulted in a massive backlash against the Left on education, and now, multiple swing states and districts across the country could end up throwing their Democrat representatives out of office for their failure to address parents’ concerns.
