Control of Congress is on the line next November.
Democrats head into the midterms defending a slim majority.
And now Nancy Pelosi was handed some private polling numbers that made her blood run cold.
Democrats in the House and Senate passed the nearly two trillion dollar “Blue State Bailout” bill as their first act in Joe Biden’s Washington.
The Democrat media cite polling showing the bill registering approval numbers in the 60s and 70 percent range as evidence that it is supposedly “popular.”
But the National Republican Campaign Committee conducted their own internal polling of the battleground districts that will determine control of the House of Representatives and determined that swing voters found both Nancy Pelosi and the Blue State Bailout Bill unpopular.
“As Nancy Pelosi pushes her partisan, socialist agenda, the Republican advantage will grow because in ticket splitting districts, 52% want “a Republican who will be a check-and-balance to Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi” versus just 40% who want “a Democratic member of Congress who will help Joe Biden and Congressional Democrats pass their agenda,” the NRCC polling memo stated.
The NRCC also found that swing voters rejected the Blue State Bailout bill.
“House Democrats’ corrupt, $1.9 trillion “COVID-relief” package that provides a bailout to mismanaged state governments is not popular. Just 44% of voters, including just 38% of Independents, agree with Pelosi’s Blue State bailout,” the NRCC memo added.
The NRCC cited recent history as evidence the Democrats would pay a political price for ramming a bill through Congress on a straight party line vote.
In the memo, the NRCC recalled how in 2009 public approval ratings for Barack Obama’s almost one trillion dollar stimulus package flipped on their heads.
One year after Obama signed that legislation into law Democrats lost 63 seats in the House of Representatives and six in the Senate.
“Democrats’ go-it-alone strategy on wasteful spending disguised as a stimulus has cost them before. In a February 2009 NBC-Wall Street Journal poll, voters supported the Obama stimulus package by a +23% margin (57% support – 34% oppose). A year later in March 2010, voters thought the Obama economic stimulus package was a bad idea by a 7-point margin (35% good idea – 42% bad idea). Our polling data shows the same thing will happen as voters learn more about the Pelosi Payoff and all the wasteful spending in this so-called “stimulus.” the memo concluded.
Democrats are hoping that when voters head to the polls their lasting memory of this bill will be the $1,400 checks.
But even then this legislation sends out less money to fewer voters than the initial stimulus bill Donald Trump signed into law.
Democrats have almost no margin for error in 2022.
And they just bet their majority on a bill that swing voters in key districts find unpopular.
