Voters say Republicans haven’t done enough to make their case midterm


Voters say Republicans haven’t done enough to advocate for support heading into the midterms, according to a Convention of States Action/Trafalgar Group survey released Tuesday.

The poll asked“Have Republicans argued enough about why you should win their support in the 2022 midterm elections?”

Unfortunately for Republicans, most voters – 56.1% – said Republicans did not make a strong enough case to justify their support. Only a third, 33.9%, said they had done so, and 10% remained unsure.

Predictably, 87.1% of Democrats said the GOP hadn’t done enough to justify their support, but a smaller majority of Republicans, 61.1%, said they had done enough, compared to 25.9% of Republicans who disagree.

Perhaps of most concern to the GOP is the fact that 57.2% of independents agree that Republicans haven’t done enough to make their case as the midterm elections approach. Only 28% of independents say Republicans have made their case and 14.8% remain unsure.

The survey was conducted September 2-5, 2022 among 1,084 likely general election voters and has a margin of error of +/- 2.9%.

It comes about two months before the midterm elections, where Republicans hope to regain a majority in both the House and the Senate. However, recent polls are causing problems for Republicans as they appear to be losing their lead on the generic congressional ballot.

A Rasmussen Reports survey released last week showed the GOP lead over Democrats dropping to four percentage points, fall a single percentage point in the past week:

Rasmussen noted that in September 2018 — before Democrats took the House for the first time in eight years — they had the same four-point advantage on the generic Congressional ballot, 46% to 42%. But as the November 2018 midterm elections approach, the margins between Democrats and Republicans became extremely close: the Republicans had 46% against 45% for the Democrats.

Republicans, however, are well positioned to capitalize on the failures of the past two years under the full control of Democrats in Washington. It was revealed this week, for example, that the Bureau of Labor Statistics consumer price index rose again, up 8.3% from a year ago, inflation rages in President Biden’s America.

Meanwhile, some Republicans, such as Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), are also capitalizing on social issues, introducing a 15-week painless abortion bill on Tuesday to combat left-wing lust to legalize partial birth abortions across the country.
