Democrat Strategist Predicts ‘Biblical Disaster’ for Party in 2022 Midterms

Democrat Strategist Predicts ‘Biblical Disaster’ for Party in 2022 Midterms

“This is the reality we are in as Democrats and no one wants to face it.”

The outlook for Democrats in November is so grim that one insider is saying the party is facing a “biblical disaster” in the midterms this November.

Biden’s poll numbers began to sink after the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan and continued to sink as food and gas prices rose to historic levels.

A reckoning is coming.

Niall Stanage writes at The Hill:

The Memo: Democrats face nightmare scenario, ‘biblical disaster’

Democrats are facing a nightmare scenario with about six months to go before the midterm elections.

Inflation, immigration, the war in Ukraine and the still-lingering COVID-19 pandemic make for a dreadful political atmosphere for President Biden’s party.

The problems are compounded by Biden’s weak approval numbers and the historical pattern whereby a president’s party typically loses seats in the first midterms of his tenure.

Some Democrats believe a turnaround is still possible, or at least that losses can be kept modest.

But others, granted anonymity to speak candidly, sound a louder alarm.

“I think this is going to be a biblical disaster,” said one such Democratic strategist, who did not wish to be named. “This is the reality we are in as Democrats and no one wants to face it.”

Democrats know the bitter taste of bad midterm results. The party fared dismally during the first midterm elections of President Clinton and President Obama. In 1994, with Clinton in the White House, Democrats lost a net 54 House seats. In 2010, under Obama, they lost 63 seats.

Joe Biden is a political anchor around the neck of the Democratic party and the news just gets worse.

Byron York of the Washington Examiner recently checked in with three reputable Republican pollsters, to see what they think is coming down the road.

Could Biden’s approval rating slip into the 20s before the midterms? You better believe it:

I asked three sharp Republican pollsters and political consultants: David Winston, Curt Anderson, and Dave Carney. The takeaway from all three is that it appears the majority coalition that elected Biden has fallen apart. And that is terrible news for both the president and his party.

“While there are a lot of groups that have become more disapproving of Biden’s job performance, Independents are at a remarkable level of disapproval,” Winston said in an email exchange. “In The Economist/YouGov survey (April 9-12), Independents disapproved by a 30-60 margin; the Politico/Morning Consult survey (April 8-11) was a similar 30-62; and the Quinnipiac survey (April 7-011) was 26-56. So among a group Biden won by 13 points in 2020, after Clinton lost them by four in 2016, his disapproval is 30 points or more higher than his approval. This means the majority coalition that elected him is now not in place. Regaining it will be difficult, given his current poor job approval performances on the economy and other issues.”

Carney and Anderson had different thoughts on whether Biden has hit the bottom, or nearly so, or can plunge further. “There is no limit or floor to a president’s approval rating, but historically, Nixon’s 24 percent in January 1974 seems like the practical floor for a modern-day president,” Carney said in another email exchange. “Biden has the potential to sink into the high 20s before the midterm elections, considering inflation will be raging by then.

Consider this. Things are so bad for Democrats that the Washington Post is already making a list of Democrats who could run for president in 2024. Is this what quiet panic looks like?

That is not a vote of confidence in Biden.

“Biblical disaster”? Good! Here’s hoping the Democrat party is decimated – make that obliterated – for the rest of time.

The libs have already conceded the House. Here’s hoping that the “Biblical disaster” hammers the Senate with a filibuster-proof conservative majority.

Trump’s endorsements have ensured that more rinos will bite the dust during the primaries. And Biden still claims, “I did this!” May the libs continue to be clueless through election day. My popcorn and a barrel for collecting liberal tears are ready.

    Oddly, the left has had ‘biblical’ success with Biden (Obama’s third term): black racism and hate is ubiquitous, the economy has suffered a generational wound, the US is no longer the world’s leader of anything (let alone freedom), a long war has broken out, food shortages are coming (better heed that one, and stock up), our military has been neutered into a club for transvestites, the White House press secretary (‘Real Bitch’ Jen Psaki) has normalized hate speech from the WH press lectern, and yet another generation of young people has been polluted into useful-idiotness.

    Even if Trump wins, and De Santis succeeds him, the damage done in the past several months is generational.

    Long story short: the US won’t remain 50 states (57, if you’re Obama).

    The libs have already conceded the House. Here’s hoping that the “Biblical disaster” hammers the Senate with a filibuster-proof conservative majority.

    I don’t think that’s possible, no matter how big the swing is. Only 14 Dems are up for reelection, and there’s no swing big enough for 10 of them to lose.

    The_Mew_Cat in reply to bear. | April 18, 2022 at 10:47 am

    Only 1/3 of the Senate is up, so a filibuster proof majority will require 2 election cycles.

Sadly, The Prince of Darkness is the real puppet master of the Dems. He has a lot riding on this election also. Pedophilia, infanticide, rendering religion as fully “non-essential” while increasing suffering dependency and despair. So, yes it is Biblical.

    Peabody in reply to alaskabob. | April 17, 2022 at 1:21 pm

    You are lucky living in Alaska Bob. It’s so cold up there the Prince of Darkness probably doesn’t even visit. He probably has to meet with Murkowski in DC.

    You should name the dark royal family: Soros and Obama.

    The Gentle Grizzly in reply to alaskabob. | April 17, 2022 at 4:35 pm

    “Sadly, The Prince of Darkness is the real puppet master of the Dems.”

    Lucas is running?!?

    Being serious, you are correct. I’m not religious, but agree the problems are massive.

      One will find it impossible to differentiate between the Dems and Satan… …so whatever you believe … it really doesn’t matter.

      The road to Hell is paved with good intentions. The journey still ends up in the same place.

Bitterlyclinging | April 17, 2022 at 1:01 pm

Just the typical Democrat ‘Get Out The Vote’ program in play. They still have Dominion Voting Systems in their corner so they’re not worried. There will be 400 million votes cast for Democratic Congressional candidates this coming November 8th. Whatever it takes, yano.

    Anybody who thinks that the Dems are going to passively wait to be annihilated is an idiot. They’re printing votes and writing software for the voting machines as we sit here celebrating a victory that hasn’t yet happened.

      Dathurtz in reply to txvet2. | April 18, 2022 at 7:26 am

      For some reason, people haven’t adjusted to this reality. They genuinely think Dems are just gonna sit there and take it.

        Subotai Bahadur in reply to Dathurtz. | April 18, 2022 at 4:06 pm

        Seriously, very seriously, the reality that they have to prepare themselves for is what they are going to do or not do if the Democrats steal two national elections in a row with no prospect of them ever stopping.

        Subotai Bahadur

      The_Mew_Cat in reply to txvet2. | April 18, 2022 at 10:57 am

      That is why I think the Democrats will work to conduct the 2022 election under some kind of national emergency. In 2020, the emergency was COVID, but 2022 could be something else. Limited nuclear war perhaps?

If it is Biblical, may it be a flood to beat all floods. May there be no ‘Moses’ anywhere to save them.

Due to the advanced state of gerrymandering , there are far fewer districts in play. One strategist indicated that less than 30 seats are actually in play.

While the poll numbers would indicate a swing of 50-70 seats, i would expect the change to be 25-30 max. Somewhat similar in the Senate where a max of 4-5 seats have any potential to change hands

I would like to see a massive swing in the local races, especially at the various school boards

    Your gerrymandering point is well taken. However, absent massive cheating, I can see specific reasons that it will be more. The Youngkin/VA effect (fed up parents) may take a few extra Dem seats; the border situation will take a few extra Dem seats down there; Crime will pick up a couple. I think 30-60 among Independents materially understates the situation – more like 20-80. How can there be any true Independents that like any aspect of the Biden administration’s performance on any issue – from policy, to execution, to communication. Finally, reports that Hispanics are turning on them could really upset the apple cart. How can Hispanic citizens who can vote appreciate 5 million illegals (by the end of 2022) coming in and competing with them for every resource and opportunity, especially jobs.

    henrybowman in reply to Joe-dallas. | April 17, 2022 at 4:23 pm

    That would be a lot less probable, given that people who run for low offices like school boards, boards of supervisors, and so on, don’t even have to disclose/declare party membership on the ballot in most places.

    The_Mew_Cat in reply to Joe-dallas. | April 18, 2022 at 10:48 am

    In big wave years, gerrymanders can be overcome. However, a lot of those gains will be reversed in a more normal year later.

“Joe Biden is a political anchor around the neck of the Democratic party and the news just gets worse.”

I would like to help them out. I can think of several solutions. But perhaps God will do something first. Of course that wouldn’t appear Biblical, just natural and inevitable for the shape he’s in.

    Let’s face it: Biden is no anchor, but a useful idiot for Obama: This is his third term. Biden is committing all the horrors Obama did not dare commit.

    Biden is too dumb and too corrupt to care he’s being used to destroy his own country.

    So, the fascists lose the House and Senate in 2022. Kevin McCarthy (Boehner II) is Speaker, and that rat McConnell is leader of the Senate. Guess who will get the blame for all the horrors coming in the next couple of years (and stab us in the back, yet AGAIN)?

    True change won’t come unless McConnell and McCarthy are pushed out of de facto leadership of OUR GOP. To date, they’ve done NOTHING to warrant being of charge of anything that is OURS. NOTHING.

Where do we enroll for this Biblical Disaster?

Subotai Bahadur | April 17, 2022 at 2:04 pm

1. By any rational calculation, based on real, free elections conducted at least semi-honestly; all polling information indicates the Democrats are going to lose badly, and possibly lose control of both Houses of Congress.
2. Note the conditions in the statement above.
3. Democrats in office seem to be ignoring the polling indicating such disaster.
4. The 2020 election is widely believed, by a critical portion of the population, to have been stolen by vote fraud.
5. The purported opposition party defended the theft because they hate both President Trump and those in their own party base who support him. For some inexplicable reason, said party base no longer trusts that opposition party to either tell them the truth or to actually “oppose” the Democrats.
6. And that opposition party studiously avoids speaking of the theft, AND has not done anything to prevent a repetition of the nationwide theft this November.
7. IF the Democrats do NOT lose some very important rhetorical body parts in any purported election in November, it can be rationally taken as an indication that the election was stolen again, and not only that critical portion but also others will so conclude.
8. If a significant and growing proportion of the population believes that two national elections in a row have been stolen and that there is nothing to indicate that all further elections will not be; a) what would the perceived legitimacy of the government so installed be? and b) what should that significant and growing portion of the population do in such case?

I’ll leave you to talk amongst yourselves about this.

Subotai Bahadur

    I agree with you and repeat my comment, above.

    Ty Mr. Bahadur, you said it much more eloquently than I could have… I was just going to bitch about the reckoning, and the disaster, they depend on how the elections are done, and who (or what) counts the votes.. 2020 seemed a sure thing, until it wasn’t.

    While everything you say is true I would point out that it is extremely plausible that the Democrats are failing to respond to their situation at least partly because they don’t know how. Hate has been their only real play for so long that they don’t have anything else to fall back on. They are not rational. They’ve always prospered without it, and have no idea what it would take to begin acting rationally.

    Of course, that inability pushes them toward the only other thing they know besides hate: Corruption.

      The_Mew_Cat in reply to irv. | April 18, 2022 at 10:52 am

      They aren’t responding because they can’t. The Democratic Party is run by their funders, the teachers unions, their activists, and the Media – and those 4 groups overlap to a great extent. The Rats have no choice but to double down on a base mobilization strategy to salvage as many seats as they can. If they tried to appeal to moderate voters, they would get their heads handed to them even worse – as they would fail to convince anyone but would anger their base and the base would stay home.

Uh, they didn’t win last time either, but that wasn’t an impediment for them.

So I’m ticking them off in my mind… plague, war, famine, death of the firstborn… and I’m realizing that Democrats have already brought all those things among all of us, all by themselves.

Think up something good, God — if all you come up with is some lame “frogs” or “lice,” we’re gonna be pissed.

To a Democrat, the Egyptians losing their slaves was a Biblical disaster.

    Peabody in reply to malclave. | April 17, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    To the Democrats, Lincoln freeing the slaves was a Biblical disaster. Since then they have worked tirelessly to get them back and keep them on the plantation.

Nope- I’m calling bullshit. This is all a lot of click bait to get news hungry conservatives be feel hopeful and virtuous about the current situation.

First- define biblical: 1980 and 1984???? Not in your wildest dreams. 2010… well maybe half that if anyone is being honest. As soon as you start getting into the details of which senators and reps are losing at the national level and for me the state level “Biblical” starts looking like “narrowly taking back the house and senate. For my state- it will remain blue.

I’ve been weighing this heavily- and I’ll give you the “why.” If my state does not flip red at the state level AND kick Patty Murray out in November AND undo all the antipolice laws- our decision to leave will be in concrete. So I go down the list of candidates and districts that could flip. The result??? Wa is still firmly blue.

Ok next point of interest is our destination states (FL or TN), real estate is being pumped up by people fleeing the hell hole states. People fleeing those places are using the same logic as me (whether they know it or not) and that if the crime and madness does not turn around, they are gone. That will only start at the ballot box. Ask the hard questions of who/where in New York and Ca are politicians are really in trouble… well “biblical” is not the words anyone is using in terms of their hopes for those states to change their state or federal representation. Not by a long shot. In fact there is no screw up for Newsom that could possibly get him fired- the same is true for everyone in Sacramento. People have no freaking clue how hard of a turn they need to make to clean up these crime ridden hell holes. Also “no confidence” in Biden is NOT a no confidence in the dem they elected in 2014. A few are pissed and they are fleeing. These are the SOBs I’m competing with to buy my next house at a highly inflated rates. While I really want this to turn around because it will save me a few hundred k… don’t expect much.

Now I’ll get even finer in the details on what I see with my own eyes. MOST people in these crime ridden hell holes aren’t even annoyed about the blight and decline in any meaningful way and surely not in any way to effect meaningful changes. Yesterday I see two guys chopping a car at the far end of the home depot parking lot at 10:30 in the morning. Plain sight. Despite non-stop car theft, catalytic converter theft, shoplifting at that store, smash and grabs ever 5 minutes in this area, no one called it in.
A hundred people passed by and didn’t think anything of it- hell they are even running a sawsall under there and no one thinks twice about it. What’s the worst that could happen by calling the cops???? nothing- but a friendly “hi”???? This had been going on for an hour at least before I rolled up. So I am in the parking lot next to this while waiting on my kid in her BJJ class, so I slow roll past them and make solid eye contact at 3 MPH… I slow roll back into my parking spot and call it in. THEN they quickly pack up their tools into the support rig and make tracks. It gets better. The cops arrive and as it turns out, they weren’t just chopping the one car, they were using 1/8th of the Home Depot parking lot as a chop shop and a bunch of other cars parked back there were stolen too!!!!! But wait- it gets better. You think the cops would wait for a tow truck to arrive and take these cars away??? Nope. The cops left and the thieves came back an hour later and drove the cars out to some other location. My head was figuratively exploding in a giant WTF????

How many hundreds of people watched this all go down and thought nothing and did nothing? The state legislature overseeing this refused to ban camping on the side of the interstate (where lunatic tweakers are wandering into the freeway and getting squashed in record numbers) because that’s a slippery slope on creating a stigma on the homeless and cracks downs on camping.

Nope- there will be no biblical blood bath. We are in unchartered waters for decline.

I hope to God I am wrong. Unfortunately, I am not often wrong about such things. I don’t know a single Washingtonian who is going to vote differently this fall. Hate, bigotry, ignorance and lies from MSM run that deep.

    Q in reply to Andy. | April 18, 2022 at 10:48 am

    I hope you’re wrong too, but suspect that you are mostly correct.

    My relocation vote is for TN. Suburbs west of Knoxville are well worth looking at. Stay away from Nashville – the climate there is consistently leftist.

    The_Mew_Cat in reply to Andy. | April 18, 2022 at 10:55 am

    I wonder how bad things can get before the bluest areas in the country surprise us and toss the bums out? I know this – polls won’t see it coming, and it can’t happen unless there are alternatives on the ballot to vote for.

      How hateful do people in San Francisco have to be to continue clinging to their current elected officials and ideology? The wondering where naivety/stupid compassion ends and hate for anything that’s “not our party” should have ended a long time ago; the common voter there is driven by the dopamine of hate disguised as virtue.

      Seattle did elect a Republican city attorney. The rest of the elected officials are safe. So my guess is they will tread bottom because they know they are bouncing on the bottom. I was talking with the Home Depot manager here and he said they are redesigning the Seatle area stores to lock people in until they exit past an armed security guard. That reflects ZERO confidence in government doing anything.

2024 will be the real Biblical disaster when their Hail Mary attempt to thwart Trump results in horrid collateral damage.

They manufactured 20 million votes for Biden and so there is no way he was +13% with independents, therefore Joe has no base of support outside the 30% or so that are rabid Democrats. Seniors are particularly vulnerable to inflation, and even long time Democrat senior voters will either vote GOP (only if DeSantis is the nominee) or stay home (if it is Trump).

Here’s the rub. CTCL, the 501(c)3 that manufactured all those votes with Zuckerberg’s $500M has just announced their 2022 $80M effort to have “election integrity.” So the steal is on again and it is on us, the GOP base, to volunteer to be election observers/poll watchers so we can make sure the Democrats can’t execute another steal. This is how Youngkin, Sears and Miyares won in Virginia, by insuring the Democrats couldn’t add fraudulent votes in Loudon, Fairfax, and Arlington counties.

Biden may not have hit bottom, because he is a senile fool who deserves to have zero support. But at some point, Biden’s numbers dropping will not translate into Republican gains. Hard core partisans will still show up and vote for their party even if they have lost all confidence in Dementia Joe.

I recommend reading the list of candidates proposed in the Washington Post article linked above. And then scrolling through the comments to the article. The list itself seems like it’s part of a comedy routine. (For instance, AOC is 10th.). The comments themselves are fascinating. If you want to see the equal and opposite world to what have here at LI, look at the comments to the WP article. Then have a stiff drink to calm down.

Predict all you want, which can be dangerous and foolish. Put nothing past these degenerates when it comes to corruptly “winning” an election. Already I’m hearing how the old rectal prolapse in the White House is promising free college and waiving student debt–just in time for the coming elections, of course. Notice how the left have to appeal to the grubs and sloth in this country instead of running on all the “good” they’ve done since they’re in office. I wonder why.
