The GOP has experienced landslide victories in midterm elections in the past, but 2022 may prove to be quite spectacular. According to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released Sunday shows Republicans currently hold the largest lead in the generic congressional ballot since 1981.

“As things stand, if the midterm elections were today, 51 percent of registered voters say they’d support the Republican candidate in their congressional district, 41 percent the Democrat,” the Langer Research press release states.

Langer conducted the poll for ABC News/Washington Post. “That’s the biggest lead for the Republicans in 110 ABC/Post polls to ask this question since November 1981.” It is also only the second time the GOP has held such a statistically significant advantage. The first was January 2002 when they held +7points. “It’s also the ninth time it’s held any numerical edge at all.”

According to the poll, many details are at play. For one, Biden’s approval rating has plummeted to 41% in the poll. “Biden’s rating is at an all-time low for his career among nearly all demographic groups. Independent voters give Biden just 35% approval. However, 63% support the recently passed infrastructure bill and 58% favor the Build Back Better bill” writes the Daily Caller.

Independent voters are also at play. Independents often referred to as swing voters, show they currently would support a GOP candidate by a whopping 50-32 percent margin. “This is notable considering they voted +12 points for the Democratic Party in the 2018 elections, which were the most recent midterm election.”

Additionally, the poll shows widespread economic anxiety. With inflation running at a 30-year high, 70% of Americans say the U.S. economy is in bad shape. That is up from 58% earlier this spring.

Pro-Defund the Police Gubernatorial Candidate has NYPD Detail, Lives on Military Base for ‘Affordability’

Jumaane Williams is ‘hypocritical’ for living on a secure military base, critics say

Hypocrisy is no stranger to Democrats, but New York gubernatorial candidate Jumaane Williams is sparking outrage over his. Williams, an outspoken advocate of defunding the police, is relying on…the police…to protect him as he runs for governor.

Williams not only travels with a detail of New York City’s NYPD officers, but he also lives on a military base. The military base also provides 24/7 security. Williams, a self-proclaimed racial justice advocate, was elected as the New York City public advocate in 2019 after serving on the NYC Council.

Williams lives on the Fort Hamilton U.S. Army Garrison in Brooklyn, where anyone requesting entry must submit a background check and go through security checkpoints. NYPD security detail travels with him each day, provided to him because of his position for the city.

Williams proudly describes himself as a Democratic Socialist, and his campaign website touts a vow to “bring transformational change to Albany.” When New York City agreed to cut the NYPD budget by $1 billion as a result of the defund the police movement, Williams said the cut was an insufficient amount.

To add insult to injury, Williams lives on the military base simply for its “affordability.” A representative for Williams told the New York Post “when he needed a new home for his family in 2019, they chose a publicly available unit in Fort Hamilton not because of its position on a base but because it offered the best unit for his family’s price point and criteria.”

An area official with knowledge of the base’s housing process told the Post “these aren’t apartments listed on Zillow. It’s essentially a gated community with stunning waterfront views protected by tanks and soldiers with M16s.”

Not only are our tax dollars, but also our police and military forces helping to protect and house a man who is actively working to undo it all with his liberal policies.
