Democrats are hoping to retain control of the Senate through next year’s midterm elections but with an even split new polling suggests Dems may not be able to stay in charge. As Republicans target multiple vulnerable Democrats across the country polling suggests it’s already working and Dems shouldn’t get too comfortable in the Senate.
A new poll shows Nevada Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto is one of multiple vulnerable Dems going into 2022.
Her opponent, Republican Adam Laxalt, holds a 39% to 37% lead, based on a poll conducted from Sept. 11-15 by Republican pollster Chris Wilson of WPA Intelligence.
GOP New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu leads Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H., 49% to 48%, according a Saint Anselm College poll conducted Aug. 24-26. That poll had a margin of error of 2.3% and surveyed 1,855 registered voters.
In Georgia, Sen. Raphael Warnock, D-Ga., leads former NFL star Herschel Walker by just 2 points, according to a Public Policy Polling survey conducted Aug. 4-5. The poll was conducted among 622 voters and had a margin of error of 3.9%.
Late last month, NBC News reported that Democrats had accelerated fundraising toward targeting nine states in their bid to retain control of the Senate in the midterms, NBC News reported.
Democrats are going to continue to struggle going into 2022 as the GOP is hellbent on winning back control of Congress.
