They say there are no sure things in politics and boy, did we see that maxim play out in 2020.
Donald Trump was set to thump Joe Biden’s ass — and we believe he did — but ‘suddenly’ the tables turned and Biden manages to slip into the White House (so we can watch this elderly man slip up the steps to Air Force One on a regular basis).
But there are insiders now who believe that Republicans are a sure thing when it comes to at least retaking the House next year in the midterms — providing there isn’t any BS again like we saw in the swing states in 2020.
Those insiders just happen to be staffers on Capitol Hill, and they are hearing all of the scuttlebutt, as Breitbart News reports:
Nearly three-quarters of senior Capitol Hill aides believe Republicans will take back control of the House majority during the 2022 midterm elections.
Punchbowl News' survey of senior Capitol Hill aides, the Canvass, revealed 73 percent think Republicans will take the speaker's gavel from Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). Although this is down five percent from Punchbowl's last survey, it still represents a strong majority of Hill staffers.
Republicans only have to flip roughly five seats to regain the House majority; Republicans lost the House majority during the 2018 midterm elections. The loss of the House stalled much of then-President Donald Trump's legislative agenda, and the loss of the House majority might do the same for President Joe Biden's.
Now, that said, 75 percent believe that the Senate will remain in control of the Democrats. Let’s hope that portion of the survey is wrong.
