The 2022 midterm elections are two weeks away. Will it be a red or blue wave? Or a shade of purple? Which party will control Congress in January?
Rasmussen Reports, in a recent survey of likely U.S. voters, found that: “Republicans have a seven-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.” They also observed: “The GOP leadership is up three points from last week when they led 47% to 43%.”
Republicans should not break out the champagne quite yet as the GOP, also known as the “stupid party,” is fully capable of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. One example is in my state of Colorado where the Republican Senate candidate Joe O’Dea made these remarks on CNN:
“I don’t think Donald Trump should run again,” O’Dea said in an interview Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I’m going to actively campaign against Donald Trump and make sure that we’ve got four or five really great Republicans right now.”
