Republicans are concerned over the surprising news Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi just received about the Midterm elections

The November Midterm elections are coming up in less than four months.

Democrats are defending razor-thin majorities in both Houses of Congress.

And now Republicans are concerned over the surprising news Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi just received about the Midterm elections.

Joe Biden’s Presidency has been one giant disaster.

His failures on everything from the economy to inflation to the border to surging crime have driven his approval ratings to all-time lows, making him the most unpopular President in the history of modern polling.

Biden’s age and declining mental faculties are also driving his approval ratings down.

A recent I&I/TIPP poll found that the majority of Americans are worried Joe Biden is suffering from severe mental decline.

Republicans only need to flip five seats in the House to oust Nancy Pelosi as Speaker and one seat in the Senate to end Chuck Schumer’s tenure as Majority Leader.

With such a razor-thin majority, Schumer and Pelosi have no room for error this fall.

Generic Congressional ballot question

The generic ballot question asks voters which Party they would like to see in charge of the federal government after November.

The results have historically skewed in favor of the Democrat Party.

For example, in 2010, Republicans had a 2-point advantage on the generic ballot question days before the November election.

However, that 2-point advantage translated to Republicans picking up a whopping 63 seats in Congress on Election Day.

For most of the year, Republicans have held the lead over Democrats in the generic ballot question.

At one point this year, Republicans were leading Democrats by 10 points, which set a new record for the GOP on the generic ballot question.

Bad news for the Republican Party

On Wednesday, the popular political polling site FiveThirtyEight updated the average for its generic Congressional ballot question.

The average from FiveThirtyEight looks at polls from Morning Consult, Rasmussen Reports, Ipsos, Data for Progress, and YouGov.

And the latest report shows Democrats are now leading Republicans in the generic ballot polling average by a narrow margin of 44.2 percent to 44 percent.

Of course, Republicans are still projected to pick up between 12 and 35 seats in the House, which would be enough to oust Pelosi as Speaker.

But this should still serve as a major warning sign for Republicans.

Wake up call for Republicans

Joe Biden and the Democrats are fighting to win the support of their voters and fire up their base.

Unfortunately, the GOP leadership in Congress hasn’t lifted a finger to stop Joe Biden and the Democrats’ socialist agenda.

Mitch McConnell cut a deal that allowed Democrats to ram through the largest gun-control bill in American history.

McConnell also allowed Chuck Schumer to outmaneuver him in the Senate twice on spending bills, the most recent time being the so-called Inflation Reduction Act.

Republican voters expect their elected officials to fight for their values.

It’s demoralizing to Republican voters when GOP leadership allows Joe Biden and the Democrats to score victory after victory without using every tool at their disposal to block, obstruct, and hold them up every step of the way.

The Midterm elections are less than four months out.

Republicans are still on path to take back the House and potentially the Senate.

But the Democrats taking the lead on the generic ballot question should serve as a wakeup call to Republican leadership.
