I said in March there was going to be a lot of buyer’s remorse when voters saw what Joe Biden and the Democrats were up to with total control of Washington. This was an exaggeration.
Recent surveys from USA Today, Suffolk University and other sources showed that 46% of respondents thought Biden had done a worse job in office than they anticipated. This includes 16% of voters who voted for Biden. In a poll released by ABC News, Washington Post and others, Republicans had a 10-point lead in the generic congressional vote, which was the biggest margin ever recorded in its 40-year history.
Here’s what should really scare Democrats vying to maintain control of the majority in the U.S. Senate: in the states that will decide the majority (Arizona, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin), Republicans hold a 23-POINT LEAD in the generic ballot. These numbers are consistent with polling we at the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) have done that shows voters across the board rejecting the Democrats’ agenda.
TSUNAMI, VOTER, BEGINS TO DEMOCRATS DROWN
It’s not hard to explain why Biden and the Democrats are reeling politically. They misunderstood the 2020 election.
Biden and Democrats felt they had the mandate to change America fundamentally. They’re pushing for a massive expansion of the welfare state; a massive increase in federal spending, taxes and debt; a radical social agenda; a federal takeover of elections; amnesty and open borders; and a weak foreign policy that embarrasses us on the world stage.
The results: record inflation that’s causing the prices of everyday goods to skyrocket, record illegal immigration, record debt, and 13 dead Americans in Afghanistan.
Glenn Youngkin’s win in Virginia – along with big wins by Republicans down ballot in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York and Texas – should have been a wakeup call for Democrats.
Americans need to be aware that Democrats have an active and deliberate plan to endanger our nation.
We saw, in a post-election poll in Virginia conducted by the NRSC and the Republican Governor’s Association (RGA), that voters strongly believe the country is heading down the wrong track. Voters know that the Democrats’ big government agenda and record federal spending is causing inflation and making it more difficult to afford basic goods. Voters know that schools must teach reading, writing, and arithmetic. They should not be trying to force our students into radical subjects like critical race theory.
Democrats instead are increasing their efforts to pass an agenda that voters fundamentally reject. They’re redoubling their efforts to pass an agenda that voters are fundamentally rejecting.

That’s great news for Republicans’ chances of winning back the House and the Senate next year. But we can’t rely on the Democrats’ stupidity alone (though that does help).
Every day, the NRSC spends time defining Democrats as radicals. We are reaching out to Hispanic voters, suburban voters and working-class voters across the country – because our path to victory lies in expanding the map not only geographically but demographically.
There are many great candidates across the nation. The Republican National Committee is assisting us in the legal battle to protect common-sense electoral security measures across several states. We’ve invested millions in building our digital fundraising operation and – driven by grassroots energy and support – are outraising our Democrat counterparts every month.

It would have been a complete wipeout if the election was held today. But it’s not. In a little more than one year, the election will take place. This means that now is not the right time to start putting the brakes on. It’s time to keep our foot on the gas. It is important for Americans to understand that Democrats actively and deliberately seek to destroy their country.
Every day we will make sure that this doesn’t happen until 2022.
