Democrats Internal Polling Shows Them Down 7 Points in the Congressional Midterms


While Republicans were the main focus of Tuesday night’s primary election, Democrats quickly gained attention Wednesday morning as a new poll by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee indicates a significant loss for them in November.

Punchbowl News reported that in a generic Republican versus generic Democrat election, Republicans lead Democrats by 47 to 39. This is an eight percent difference. These terrible numbers are only the tip of the bad news, Punchbowl News reported. The DCCC Chair, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney is currently fighting against an incumbent in a primary due to New York’s likely congressional map. This puts the party in a difficult spot. There could be more infighting if Democrats feel their chair is distracted or counterproductive.

Punchbowl News: DCCC internal polling “finds that in battleground districts, the generic Republican is beating the generic Democrat, 47-39, according to lawmakers, multiple party officials and the DCCC.”

“There is a lot of talk in the Dem ranks about Maloney’s ability to continue as DCCC Chairman. “A LOT of anger and frustration at Maloney,” Punchbowl’s Jake Sherman tweeted.

Jones represnts 3/4 of this district. Maloney is telling people that everyone should “calm down” — but its understandable that Jones would want to run in a district that he represents the vast majority of.

“We’ll see how it all turns out. A new map will be released Friday. The idea that Maloney doesn’t have an “a primary” — as pushed by his circle — isn’t a straight face. He continued, “He has gotten into the district that 75% of his colleague represents.”

There is a LOT of chatter in the Dem ranks right now about whether Maloney can continue as DCCC chairman. A LOT of anger, frustration at Maloney.

This disarray and public vulnerability gave the National Republican Congressional Committee a chance to gloat.

“Yikes,” tweeted the NRCC with screenshots of headlines related to the news.

Their desperation can best explain infighting and internal polling. It’s easy to blame Americans for the problems they see in their lives since Democrats control the Senate and House of Representatives. Voters have many reasons to fire their representatives, whether they are angry about inflation, baby formula shortages, or Afghanistan withdrawal. While Democrats may throw whatever insults at their opponents, it won’t change America’s perception of Washington.
