GOP Holds Double-Digit Lead Among Independent Voters Ahead of 2022 Midterms: Poll

A new poll indicates that self-described independent voters would prefer, by an 18 percentage-point margin, that Republicans regain control of Congress in next year’s midterm elections.

The poll by John Zogby Strategies, released last week, found that 45 percent of independents want the GOP in charge of the House and Senate, compared to 27 percent who want Democrats to keep their majority. The remaining 28 percent said they were undecided.

The same survey found that Republicans held a three-point advantage, 46 percent to 43 percent, on the generic congressional ballot.

“In my four decades of polling, Democrats need about a five percentage-point advantage [in] nationwide congressional preference in order to maintain a majority of Congress,” pollster John Zogby said in a statement. “With a three-point Republican lead, and a substantial lead among independents, signs are pointing today to the possibility of a big Republican advantage going into 2022.”

The same poll put President Biden’s approval rate at 46 percent, with 52 percent of respondents disapproving of his performance. While Biden’s approval number is higher than in some other recent polls, Zogby noted that 40 percent of respondents said they “strongly” disapproved of the president’s work.

  1. The question is when the changes they want occur and the nation starts to level out will they do what they always do?

    They quit, walk away from holding the radicals to account.

    After all everything is good right? Nope. It is only on generation or one election away from being ripped back to the terrible Biden/Socialist laws and economics. Did you see today, the prediction is oil will be over $100 a barrel.

    The collapse of the economy and the destruction of the working poor and middle class is intentional.

    You voted for them…..had enough?
