As we get closer and closer to the midterms, it’s becoming clear that Democrats are headed for a disaster.
We see Joe Biden getting poor marks across the board, inflation at the highest it’s been in 40 years, with gas prices through the roof and a shrinking GDP, while Biden refuses delivery on that reality. Only 19 percent of the respondents in a recent Issues & Insights/TIPP poll thought that Joe Biden should run again in 2024.
This is what it means for congressional Democrats. A new NPR/Marist poll tells the tale of which party Americans are more likely to vote for in each of their districts — and it isn’t the Democrats.
Amazing new NPR/Marist Poll
Republicans are leading Democrats among the generic Congressional ballots of these groups.
🚨For parents with under-18-year-old children, 60% vote for the GOP and 39% go for Democrats

The poll revealed that 52% of Latino voters would support a Republican candidate, while 39% would opt for a Democrat. For voters who have children under 18 years old, 60 percent said they’d vote for the GOP candidate while just 32 percent said they’d pick a Democrat. The Republicans won more voters aged 45 and under than the Democrats (40% vs. 50%).
Overall, 47 percent of voters surveyed said they’d choose the Republican candidate while 44 percent said they’d vote for the Democrat. More registered Democrat voters said they’d vote for a Republican in the midterms (7 percent) than Republican voters who would vote to send a Democrat to Congress (3 percent). Among independents, 45 percent said they’d opt for the Republican candidate compared to 38 percent who said they’d vote for the Democrat. Ten percent said they’re still unsure with a few months left before November’s midterms.
Those numbers are the death knell for the Democrats’ dreams, and it’s not exactly a conservative-leaning poll. Multiple polls have shown now that Democrats seem to be hemorrhaging Hispanic voters — voters whom the Democrats critically need.
The culture wars between Democrats and Republicans pushing extreme views like CRT or gender identity politics may also be impacting parents in congressional elections. These issues had a huge impact in Virginia in November.
Parents are looking at how radical the Democrats have become, and they’re saying no. The poll shows the parents of children younger than 18 supporting the Republicans almost by 30 percentage points. This poll is particularly interesting because Republicans have a 10 point advantage over the GOP among Americans younger than 45. You would expect that younger people are more Democratic-leaning or Democratic, but this poll is a great indicator for both November and the future.
Prepare for a lot of Democrats crying — it’s going to be sweet.
