Nancy Pelosi is on the brink of disaster.
With her House majority on the verge of collapsing, Pelosi just got hit with even worse news.
And now, one shock poll has her sweating bullets like never before.
Nancy Pelosi is just a few weeks away from losing her position as speaker of the House forever.
What’s more, a defeat in the 2022 midterm elections could mark the end of her own political career, as there are growing rumors that Pelosi will resign from Congress if she loses control of the House of Representatives in November.
But while Pelosi is fighting an uphill battle, she just got hit with even worse news.
And it’s all because of one shock poll that shows that Pelosi’s efforts to save the Democrat majority in Congress are likely doomed.
The Hill reports, “Republicans’ favorability rating clocked in 5 percentage points higher than Democrats’, according to a new Gallup poll, bucking a historical trend in which Democrats typically have the edge.
“The survey found 44 percent of respondents now hold a favorable view of the Republican Party, compared to 39 percent for the Democratic Party.”
This is a stunning reversal of a decades-long trend that shows that for most of recent history, the Democrats have enjoyed a higher favorability rating than Republicans.
Only rarely does that historical trendline flip, and whenever it does, it tends to signal that a Red Wave election is imminent.
Election cycles like 2010 and 2014, which both served as Red Wave elections for the Republican Party, were the most recent elections where the two-party favorability ratings for the Democrats and Republicans were reversed.
And this latest Gallup poll signals that 2022 could end up being yet another Red Wave year.
If that happens, it means Pelosi is guaranteed to lose her majority and thus her position as speaker of the House of Representatives.
“The new poll is the third time Republicans have seen a higher favorability rating than Democrats in the past decade, a potential warning sign for Democrats as they hope to hold their razor-thin congressional majorities in the upcoming midterm elections, although Gallup notes that the measure has not been proven to be strongly tied to election results.
“Democrats’ favorability in the new survey is the worst for the party since March 2015 and 12 percentage points lower than their historical average,” adds The Hill.
Pelosi knows that the signs here are clear and growing by the day.
And time is running out for her to turn the ship around before the midterm elections in less than a month.
But rather than improving the situation for Democrats, recent polling seems to suggest that Pelosi’s position is getting worse by the day.
That’s why Pelosi and Joe Biden are panicking, because they know they only have a few weeks left where they control both chambers of Congress and the presidency as well, and after the midterm elections it’s very likely that Democrats will end up losing both the House and the Senate, giving Republicans a firm check on Biden’s power for the rest of his own term in office.
