The margin in Congress is razor thin. In the House, Democrats hold an 8-seat edge, while in the Senate, it’s tied, 50-50, with Vice President Kamala Harris breaking tie votes.
But a Democratic strategist says that all could change in the 2022 mid-term elections.
Douglas Schoen, a political consultant who served as an adviser to President Bill Clinton and to the 2020 presidential campaign of Michael Bloomberg, said it actually could be a “blowout.”
“The marked decline in support for President Biden and his administration nationally and in key swing states indicates that the Democratic Party could endure a blowout defeat in the 2022 midterm elections,” Schoen wrote in an opinion piece in The Hill.
“Moreover, Biden is in a significantly weaker position now than both of his most recent Democratic predecessors — Bill Clinton and Barack Obama — at this point in their presidencies, which suggests that Democrats could suffer even more substantial losses in 2022 than the party did in 1994 and 2010.,” he
