Poll: Republicans Lose Lead on Generic Congressional Ballot

The results from a new poll could spell some trouble for Republicans confident in taking back Congress next year. Despite reports that Republican victory is all but assured a poll by USA Today-Suffolk University reveals that some Republicans have not made up their minds about the 2022 midterms yet.

According to The Washington Examiner:

The poll found Democrats leading Republicans on a generic ballot 39% to 37%, within the poll’s margin of error of 3.1 percentage points but a significant drop from Republicans’ 8-point lead in the same poll in November.

But according to the poll, Republicans aren’t necessarily losing support in favor of Democrats — rather, a growing share of Republicans said they were undecided. The poll found undecided voters grew to 24%, up from 16% in November.

The poll found Biden’s approval rating at 40%, a separate red flag for Democrats seeking to maintain congressional majorities.

Voters are also conflicted regarding Biden’s Build Back Better Act, a sweeping social spending bill currently stalled in the Senate. The legislation includes key portions of Biden’s domestic agenda. The bill was passed by the House last year after months of negotiations between centrist and progressive Democrats. But Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin objected to the size and scope of the bill during those negotiations, and soon after the House-passed bill’s arrival in the Senate, Manchin said he could not support it. Democrats do not have enough votes for the bill to pass without Manchin’s support.

However, Democrats have attempted to appeal to Manchin and urge him to change his position on Build Back Better but so far he’s refused to engage in negotiations about the bill.

Anyone who is “conflicted” about the Build Back Better Act, should read the bill – you will be surprised to learn how little it has to do with making America better.

Herr Hess: Biden is in the White House for the same reason your uncle Adolph won–cheating!

Like Trump, Adolph, was a loser.
Biden is in the White House because no judge thinks that their was significant voter fraud.
Not even the hundereds of judges that Trump appointed.
They think that Trump has a stinky butt.

First of all after researching Suffolk University LOCATED IN BOSTON, A LIBERAL DEMOCRAT TOWN, one easily comes to the conclusion that this supposed “Poll” was a wee bit off center by being conducted in a highly LEFTIST LOCATION!!

So, I have learned in the past, that ANY ORGANIZATION THAT WANTS A SPECIFIC “REACTION” FROM A POLL, WILL GO TO AN AREA THAT HAS GIVEN THAT REACTION FOR MANY YEARS PREVIOUSLY, i.e. SUFFOLK UNIVERSITY IS A LIBERAL DEMOCRAT SCHOOL located in a highly liberal democrat town!

Do you actually think it would ever support or give points to a Republican candidate OR RATE THEM HIGHER THAN A BELOVED DEMOCRAT??? Look at how high they rated old incompetent biddyboy Biden!! 40%??? WOW! I knew Liberal professors were locked in their own private worlds intellectually, but those Suffolk teachers are definitely locked out of REALITY!

I give the Suffolk University Poll on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being BEST: Suffolk gets a “2” Rating for being alive and breathing, that’s it!

👉FACT:👈 AGAIN, ALL POLLSTERS TAKE THEIR POLLS IN AREAS WHERE THEY ARE “GUARANTEED” TO GET THE RESPONSE THEY NEED! Please understand that the Poll will ALWAYS SWAY TO THAT AREA’S politics!

My CONCLUSION: All Polls
S U C K/UNRELIABLE BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT A TRUE REFLECTION OF WHAT IS BEING POLLED THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY! Do NOT ever let Polls sway you one way or the other — they ARE NOT THE HONEST TALLY OF THE REAL FLAVOR OF CONSENSUS IN THE LARGER AREA OF THE COUNTRY BUT ONLY RELATE TO A SPECIFIC SMALLER POLITICAL THINKING AREA. We just have to be SMARTER than your average Pollster and know how “Flawed” their system really is and don’t accept it as truth!

Once you have investigated who and where the Polls are being taken, you will undoubtedly see that Polls mean nothing because they are NOT DONE FAIRLY BY SAMPLING AREAS THAT HAVE BOTH POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE FEEDBACK, BUT ARE ALWAYS DONE IN AREAS THAT “GUARANTEED” TO SUPPORT WHATEVER THE POLL IS SELLING!

The most dangerous , thieving, lying and conniveing people are the Demorats, if the GOP doesn’t watch out, they will steal November Election, because if it is one thing the Dems can do good is lie, cheat and steal.

Polls are nothing but Pollsters way of getting results that are not reflecting the whole area of the country!!

Suffolk University is located in Boston, a very Democrat and Liberal town! Did you really expect the Suffolk University Poll would be supporting any Republican candidate????! Come on people!! Suffolk University would always color their support towards democrats, no matter HOW PATHETIC THEY REALLY ARE – like Biddyboy Biden at 40%! Wow! Those professors are super intelligent in their fields but when it comes to reality, they are LOST IN SPACE!!

Biden is inept, incompetent, a groper, and feebleminded! And the Country wants nothing to do with that moron any more! PERHAPS HE CAN GET A JOB AT THE UNIVERSITY TEACHING CLASSES ON “Groping”?

So for REALITY SAKE AND PULLING WHAT ALL POLLSTERS DO (only poll areas that will give them the results they are looking for), I rate that Suffolk University Poll a solid “2” for existing and breathing, nothing more!

FYI: Do not expect any Poll from a liberal Democrat University/town to ever support a Conservative Candidate. Won’t happen! The Pollster was only looking for low numbers for Conservatives to boost the already sagging and fragmenting democrat candidate numbers! YES! THE DEMS ARE BECOMING DESPERATE AND WILL TRY TO COLOR POLLS, ETC TO REFLECT THEY ARE SUCCEEDING — and they are NOT! Panic makes people lie, cheat, and even try to look like they are winning polls that really do not count!!

Sufflok University is a very small, very Conservative, private university.
It draws students from all the world.
Trump got 34% of the vote in Massachusetts.
We have an overwhelmingly popular two term Republican Govonor.
It did not help Trump up ballot.
Massachusetts elects people, not parties, not orange buffons

ANYBODY who is “undecided” after 11 months of Biden and his “crew” is mentally deranged! Biden has been a disaster; as has been Scummier and Piglosi!

Anybody who is undecided after J6 is mentally deranged.
It was such a joy to see true pattoits smear their fecal matter in support of the greatest leader the world has ever known.
Remember J6!

Be ready Patriots!! Ignore the Polls! Support the RED WAVE CANDIDATES AND LET’S TAKE OVER CONGRESS AND FIX THIS COUNTRY BACK TO THE STRENGTH WE HAD UNDER DJT!!

Dems had their chance to promote our Nation, secure our borders, and help the Nations in the Middle East! THEY FAILED AT ALL THREE AREAS BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT GOOD LEADERS NOR GOOD AMERICANS BUT ONLY AFTER THEIR OWN NEEDS AND DESIRES!!

Americans have seen firsthand what kind of pathetic leadership they have and we do not want them in D.C. ever again!!’ They have HURT AMERICA ENOUGH AND NOW IT IS TIME TO FIX OUR NATION BY VOTING OUT EVERY DEMOCRAT SEAT IN CONGRESS!!
Here comes the RED WAVE!! Support it every way you can!!
