The Democrats’ insanity is coming back to bite them faster than they expected.
Nancy Pelosi knows there’s a fierce fight ahead of her.
Nancy Pelosi is terrified at what this home state betrayal will cost her.
Democrats only have a razor-thin majority in the House of Representatives.
Currently, the Democrats’ margin in the House is only 218-212. They are just barely hanging onto their majority.
In general, Congress flips after a new president is elected. In the 2010 midterm elections after former President Barack Obama took office, the Democrats lost 69 seats—63 in the House and six in the Senate.
But it gets even worse for Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, since redistricting in California may cost her crucial House seats in 2022.
The California Citizens Redistricting Commission is expected to redraw the lines for California’s 45th district, currently held by Democratic Rep. Katie Porter, into surrounding districts.
There will be cuts from the 45th district because it is overpopulated; it is unclear where the voters will end up but it could end up benefitting Republicans.
“The southern portion of Porter’s 45th district also could go to Democratic Rep. Mike Levin’s narrowly blue 49th District, which includes southern Orange County and northern San Diego County. If that happens, it would favor Republicans Brian Maryott, a former San Juan Capistrano council member who is challenging Levin for a third time in 2022, or Oceanside City Councilman Christopher Rodriguez, who is rumored to be considering a CA-49 run,” The Orange County Register reports.
The voters that Porter may lose could give the GOP enough votes to flip the district.
“Porter could also lose constituents to the 46th District currently represented by Democratic Rep. Lou Correa. The area that Porter is likely to lose from, Tustin, would aid Correa but cut into Porter’s Democratic base, giving the GOP an opportunity to unseat her in 2022,” The Daily Wire reported.
The redistricting will be a huge shakeup for the California area.
“These seats are and will remain competitive, so a shift of 10,000 people this way or that way can be a big opportunity one way or the other for either political party,” said Scott Spitzer, political science professor at Cal State Fullerton. “That means you’re going to get some strong challengers for all of these seats and some significant amounts of money coming in for 2022.”
Democrats are terrified that they will lose seats if they don’t get rid of the filibuster and entirely change the American system.
“It will be Armageddon,” Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley told CBS News when asked whether Democrats will suffer in the midterms if they don’t enact filibuster reforms. “Our base will be so dispirited, so angry, so disaffected. They will stay home. And I understand why they will stay home if we failed them.”
