Rasmussen Poll: Republicans' Lead on Generic
Congressional Ballot Shrinks to 3 Points

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 8/5/2022 3:55:19 PM

Republicans lead Democrats on the generic congressional ballot by three points, two points lower than the previous week and seven points lower than the week before that, a Rasmussen Reports poll released Friday showed. While the Republicans look to retake control of Congress in the 2022 midterm elections — which are only 95 days away — after being in the minority for roughly four years, the most recent Rasmussen Reports survey showed that 46 percent of likely U.S. voters would elect a Republican, compared to the 43 percent who said they would vote for a Democrat. Thus the Republicans only have a three-point lead, which is two points less

Republicans don't bother with these polls and they are intended to make things looks closer than they are so the stealing of the election will not be so obvious.

Mail in ballots and wide open borders love voting. Democrats have gotten over a million new votes since Biden took office. It doesn't matter who fills out the ballots, just that they get filled out and counted.

If there is indeed a shift in the polling, it is likely democrats being energized by Trump. Trump will absolutely motivate democrats to vote. For now, I would prefer he lay low... very low.

Yep, prep for the steal. Next we will be told that slightly lower gas prices, killing Zawahiri, and passing the "Inflation Reduction Act", turned everything around so of course there is nothing suspect about the Dems retaining control of congress...

even a 3 point lead is "Big News!"...Dems have had a 5-7point lead in all of these going back to the nixon re-election, IE: a 8-10point swing to Repubs...even those years when repubs pulled off sweeps "Polling shows Dems with major advantage" was the constant polling stories. The devil is in the details, most of these polls sample 35-40% dems, nearly the same number of Independents...only around 25% repubs.

This is how the Democrats works. Green policies for the greenies? Check! Protect gays from monkey pox? Check! Fight against the abortion ban for women? Check! Social justice policies for blacks, women, and gays? Check! Check! Check! Sell Washington to big money interests? Check! Anti-American policies for those that hate America? Check! Lefty media abusing Trump, Republicans, and suppressing information? Check! This is how Democrats get 70-75 million votes. They have covered all their bases. What are the Republicans doing?

Biden administration officials are set to announce Tuesday a new strategy to split monkeypox vaccine doses in hopes of vaccinating up to five times as many people against the virus, according to officials with direct knowledge of the plan. The strategy, first described publicly by Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Robert Califf last week, would allow the Biden administration to stretch its limited supply of monkeypox vaccines by changing how those shots are administered. Rather than inject doses of Jynneos subcutaneously, a traditional way of delivering vaccines into the fatty tissue under the skin, the doses would instead be injected under the top layer of the skin.

Using government to persecute political opponents happens in “Marxist dictatorships,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said on Monday following news of the FBI raiding former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago. “Using government power to persecute political opponents is something we have seen many times from 3rd world Marxist dictatorships But never before in America,” Rubio said Monday evening following the news. He later connected the raid to the Senate’s passage of the radical $700 billion Inflation Reduction Act, which among other things, allots $80 billion to hire 87,000 new IRS enforcement agents “to target Americans with as many as one million additional audits per year on taxpayers earning less than $200,000

“An attack on one is an attack on all.” That keystone of the NATO charter in Article V has served as a deterrent for a major European war for nearly 80 years. Could a similar pact serve as a deterrent for boycott attacks on conservative states? Jonathan Turley looks at the political landscape, and especially the vapid boycotts imposed by equally vapid governors and legislatures on red states, and says it might work. This wouldn’t aim at private boycotts, but rather the state-to-state boycott actions championed by Democrat pols like Gavin Newsom and Stacey Abrams, about which Karen wrote earlier: Such campaigns have succeeded, particularly with private companies.

The way Democrats and the mainstream media talk incessantly about former President Donald Trump, one would think that it’s Trump and not Joe Biden who currently occupies the Oval Office. Indeed, even Biden himself can’t stop obsessing over Trump, bizarrely invoking him in recent comments he made about his recent bout with COVID. He also made sure that Democrats marked the anniversary of the Jan. 6, 2020 Capitol riot complete with a speech in which Trump was the focus and where Biden proclaimed Trump was responsible for the breach of the U.S. Capitol, something he reiterated during a virtual White House event in July.

National Guard but was turned down by the Pentagon — has described the busing of border crossers and illegal aliens as a “crisis,” Adams has called the buses arriving in his city “horrific.”

There was more news about what might be behind it, relating to classified material that Trump might have but if that’s the case, it makes it even more ridiculous as there would be other ways to proceed. It seemed like a fishing expedition to see what they could grab.But perhaps nowhere could it be more shocking or more upsetting than to the Trump family who have been pursued, for so long by the Democrats, with every political effort they have thrown at them.

With inflation raging and the shadow of recession looming, it’s difficult to envision a worse time to pass a tax-and-spend bill like the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). Yet, that’s just what Senate Democrats did Sunday. It’s even harder to imagine that “moderate” Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), both of whom voted for the bill, believe it will live up to its Orwellian name. If so, they are at odds with the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), hundreds of economists, millions of Americans, and even Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

Even before he became president, the now-79-year-old Joe Biden faced serious and persistent questions about his mental health. Among average Americans, those questions have become a major issue, the latest I&I/TIPP Poll shows. The I&I/TIPP Poll, conducted online from Aug. 2-4 among 1,335 adults nationwide, shows that a 59% majority now say they are “very concerned” (36%) or “somewhat concerned” about Biden’s mental health. That compares with just 39% saying they are “not very concerned” (18%) or “not at all concerned” (21%). Only 2% of respondents said they were “not sure.” The poll has a margin of error of +/-2.8 percentage points.
