WashTimes: What Democrats’ House retirements mean for 2022 election
Biden campaigned on ‘unity’ and ‘normalcy’ but has delivered just the opposite
The all-important 2022 midterm elections are just over a year away, and the stakes couldn’t be higher. Socialism and President Joe Biden’s radical left-wing agenda are on the ballot, and what kind of country we hand off to our children and grandchildren will be tested.
Radical House Speaker Nancy Pelosi holds a razor-thin 222 to 213 majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, so there’s literally no room for error for the Democrats. Republicans need a net pickup of just five seats to reach the magic number of 218 seats to take back the majority in the House.
There’s no question that to maintain control of Congress next year, the radicalized Democrats in the House will have to make a dramatic move to the center, and even that may not save them. Consider the headwinds that Mrs. Pelosi and company are currently facing. First and foremost, the party in power almost always loses House seats in a president’s first midterm election. Republicans lost 26 House seats in President Ronald Reagan’s first midterm in 1982; Democrats lost 54 House seats in President Bill Clinton’s first midterm in 1994, and Democrats lost a whopping 63 House seats in 2010 in President Barack Obama’s first midterm.
