Americans are being crushed by Joe Biden’s failed policies.
That’s one of the reasons why the Democrats are bracing for a red wave in the midterms.
Now Nancy Pelosi could be making one shocking announcement about her future.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi could be retiring from leadership after the midterms, a move that could signal Democrats know they’re going to lose control of the chamber.
Pelosi is even older than Joe Biden, so if the Democrats lose, her chances of hanging around and becoming Speaker again are slim.
From The Washington Post:
“House Democrats are bracing for a turnover in leadership next year that would amount to a seismic event for the party — one that could empower a new, diverse generation of members while also exacerbating tensions over the direction of the caucus and the policies it should pursue. After almost 19 years as House Democratic leader, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) is expected to step down at the close of this Congress…”
Ever since Pelosi reclaimed the position of Speaker in 2018, she has been in a constant struggle with the wild-eyed socialists in her caucus.
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow travelers constantly attacked Pelosi from her left flank, often publicly.
At one point, long-time New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd wrote a hit piece aimed at the far-left “Squad.”
The only thing that unified the party was their rabid hatred of Donald Trump.
The Post continued:
“Whoever replaces Pelosi will face the daunting task of presiding over the increasingly tense debate about whether Democrats will be the party of the activist left or of a center-left coalition that can appeal to a broader segment of America in the struggle with an ever more populist and nationalistic Republican Party. It’s a debate that is already raging as Democrats scramble to rescue the main pillar of Biden’s agenda that would expand education, health-care and climate change programs and has led to deep acrimony between liberal and centrist members about what the party has promised voters and what it will actually deliver. The debate will only get more intense.”
With Pelosi out of leadership, the progressives will be chomping at the bit to run to the Left.
But that could benefit the Republicans.
Americans are not in favor of the Democrats’ radical policies.
Republicans currently have their largest lead ever in the generic congressional ballot in large part because of Biden’s economy.
Inflation is at a 39-year high, and progressives want to double down on inflationary policies.
Democrats are even losing ground with nonwhite voters.
In the 2020 election, Trump got the biggest GOP share of the nonwhite vote since 1960, and a recent poll shows that Latinos are evenly split between the two parties going into the midterms.
Democrats do not have a deep bench.
Outside of Ocasio-Cortez, who’s an avowed Democratic Socialist, the Democrats do not have any young prospects with name recognition across the country.
The battle between the radicals and the so-called moderates is about to intensify.
