The 2014 Midterm Election cycle is about to be unleashed, and the stakes couldn’t be higher. If Democrats lose Congress, the Obama era is effectively over as the current president becomes a likely increasingly disenchanted seat warmer for his successor. Here’s a fun fact that bodes very well for those of you who would like to see that happen.
Going back to 1962, presidents with a sub-50% approval rating have lost an average of 44 House seats in midterm elections, according to data compiled by Republican pollster Bill McInturff.
According to pollster Bill McInturff, data going all the way back to 1962 shows that when a president’s approval rating drops below 50%, they can expect to lose on average, 44 House seats – what is effectively a landslide victory for the opposition party. Republicans already have the House locked up tight though – it’s the Senate they want. So look for this data trend to deliver that very thing.
Yesterday, Capitol Hill sources indicated as many as TWELVE Senate seats are now up for grabs. If Republicans were to take just seven or eight of those seats, the entire power structure in Washington D.C. would shift to the right, and the Obama White House would be isolated, rendering it an impotent progressive-socialist island unto itself.
Ready to fight back against the Age of Obama reader? 2014 is yet another, and perhaps even more critical, opportunity to do so. -UM
