Polling Data Shows Republicans Poised to Win Big in 2022

An NPR/Marist poll that was recently released showed that Republicans lead on the congressional ballot for the first time in almost 10 years. 

According to the poll, voters give Republicans the advantage over Democrats 47% to 44%. The poll indicates that most Americans believe Republicans are best suited to address the multitude of issues plaguing the country.

A press release from Marist stated:

“On the economy, controlling inflation, crime, national security, and gun policy, pluralities of Americans perceive the Republican Party to be the party who would be better able to handle these issues. Americans express these views as President Joe Biden’s job approval rating remains upside down, and his ratings on the economy and the crisis in Ukraine take on water.”

The poll also showed that independent voters favored Republicans for the primaries. 45% of Independents lean toward Republicans, while 38% go toward Democrats. About 10% are still undecided.

The poll data showed, “57% of adults registered to vote disapprove of how President Joe Biden is handling the economy. When asked which party they “think would do a better job” in managing the economy, respondents favored the Republican Party (42%) over the Democratic Party (26%).”

As of now, there is an 85% chance Republicans could retake the house and a 73% chance they could retake the Senate in 2022.
