(Patriot Insider) – Republicans don’t need too much to be able to take control of both chambers of Congress. In the House they only need to flip five seats and in the Senate they only need to gain one seat to take control. It’s well within the realm of possibilities but many, including former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, believe Republicans are going to run away with the November midterm elections.
Gingrich told The Epoch Times he expects Republicans to get what they need to take control plus a lot more.
“I would say we’ll be between plus three and plus seven … in the Senate; and we’ll be between plus 20 and plus 50 in the House, with the most likely number being plus 44,” Gingrich asserted.
Election Day is fast approaching and Democrats are still pretending to be optimistic despite having nothing to offer voters nor any defense for the current regime.
All they have are personal attacks and lies about their Republican opponents, as usual.
Republicans have all the momentum going into the Nov. 8 elections and they’re only gaining steam in key contests around the country.
The Epoch Times gave a rundown of a few of these key races:
In New Hampshire, Republican challenger Don Bolduc has narrowed the gap between himself and Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan to 2 points, according to an Oct. 20 poll by GOP pollster Fabrizio, Lee and Associates, well within the 4 percentage point margin of error. The poll, which was commissioned by Bolduc’s campaign, placed Hassan at 49 percent to Bolduc’s 47 percent.
In Arizona, Trump-backed Republican Senate candidate Blake Masters is gaining ground in the stretch run. Polling data aggregator RealClear Politics predicts the race to be a tossup and gives the Democrat incumbent, Mark Kelly, only a 2.5-point lead.
In Pennsylvania, Lt. Gov. John Fetterman’s double-digit edge has evaporated in recent weeks. A recent AARP Pennsylvania poll conducted by Fabrizio Ward and Impact Research showed Fetterman with a 48 percent to 46 percent lead, which is within the margin of error of 4.4 points.
In Georgia, Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock’s lead over Republican nominee Herschel Walker is sliding, too. A recent Landmark Communication poll had the two tied at 46 percent, while an InsiderAdvantage survey showed Warnock 2 points ahead, within the margin of error of 4.2 percentage points.
“Almost everywhere in the country, races are showing the Republicans tightening up,” Gingrich remarked, adding that Democrats have only themselves to blame.
Inflation, border security, rampant crime and “woke policies,” he stated, are all “coming together” in a backlash against Democrats.
“When you have sort of insane left-wing Democrats who believe that you don’t need prisons and that things can be dealt with by just being nice to murderers, I think the average person just thinks this is crazy,” he declared, pointing to the state of New York as an example of out of control crime.
New York gubernatorial candidate Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) has made crime a major focus of his campaign as current Governor Kathy Hochul continues to ignore the issue.
Zeldin has made a point to discuss New York City’s skyrocketing crime rates as well as the fact that Hochul is doing nothing to address it. Zeldin has gained major ground in the race against Hochul. He has a real chance to win the governorship in the deep-blue state.
It turns out Americans do care about crime and being safe despite what many Democratic candidates claim, which is that Republicans are just “racists” for talking about crime and that it’s all just a campaign tactic to scare voters.
Voters are scared of what their neighborhoods will look like if Democrats continue to call the shots. Now Hochul is scrambling to save her campaign and has announced a plan with NYC Mayor Eric Adams to hire another 1,200 officers to address crime. The effort is too little, too late at this point.
Democrats have made a habit of ignoring the issues that actually matter to Americans and instead have been laser focused on the issue of abortion, which they comically claim is an economic issue.
On Oct. 18, House Speak Nancy Pelosi claimed that a New York Times/Siena poll showing that the economy and inflation are the top-ranked issues for voters’ was an “outlier” and went on to insist that abortion is actually what Americans care about.
“I can tell you that women’s concerns about their freedom are very, very much still very significant in terms of how they will vote,” she told MSNBC. “It’s a matter of who turns out to vote,” she said, adding that she feels “pretty good” about her party’s chances.
Pelosi has become far too arrogant and detached from the people she’s supposed to be serving. Poll after poll has clearly shown that Americans are most concerned about the issues that are actually having an impact on their lives which would be inflation, the economy, the border crisis, and crime.
Democrats, however, are utterly obsessed with abortion. On top of the fact that they can’t stop talking about abortion despite the myriad of economic and quality of life issues facing Americans, Democrats have also taken an extremely radical stance on the issue which is just not popular among most Americans, even the ones who are “pro-choice.”
“Republicans are actually winning the argument, because it’s a question of who’s the more extreme,” he noted.
It’s the Democrats who are actually extreme when it comes to abortion. Most candidates running for office either refuse to give a straight answer when asked about restrictions on abortion or they proudly assert they do not support any restrictions.
They constantly try to make Republicans out to be extreme but in most cases Republicans have been very sensible on the issue, supporting the states’ right to make up their own laws and supporting abortion in rare cases of rape, incest and to protect the life of the mother.
“People actually think the Democrats are more extreme in their eagerness to kill babies than Republicans are in their desire to save babies,” Gingrich commented.
The abortion issue is actually one that is “not helping Democrats as much as they think,” he added.
“Because their activists are so intense, and so rabid, and their activists have been giving money, it feels like it’s a good issue for them. But when you go out to the country beyond the hard left of the Democratic Party, it’s in fact, not working for them at all.”
No, it’s not but they seem hell-bent on shooting themselves in the foot. Abortion is the only issue they are “strong” on and it’s backfiring big time.
Republicans are poised to win big time on November 8, assuming there are no election shenanigans.
