Most people already agree that Democrats are going to lose control of the House of Representatives next year.
It won’t be very difficult to do that because Republicans only need to take about a half a dozen seats to win.
But now, new polling indicates that the Senate is also going to be in play, and this is bad news for Democrats.
Polling Suggests Democrats Set to Lose Control of Senate in 2022
Democrats appear to be in trouble as they try to retain control of the Senate in next year’s midterm elections, various polls indicate.
With the current Senate split evenly along party lines — with Vice President Kamala Harris able to cast tiebreaking votes — losing one seat would swing control to the Republicans.
A new poll shows Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev., could be vulnerable in 2022, Newsweek reported Friday.
Her opponent, Republican Adam Laxalt, holds a 39% to 37% lead, based on a poll conducted from Sept. 11-15 by Republican pollster Chris Wilson of WPA Intelligence.
In the poll, conducted among 504 likely voters with a margin of error of 4.4%, 12% of respondents were undecided and another 12% chose “none of the above.”
“Internal polling from September shows that this has quickly become a very tight race,” Laxalt campaign polling memo said. “With each passing day of the Biden presidency, the environment gets better for Republicans.”
Another poll, conducted Aug. 9-14 by VCreek/AMG poll, showed Laxalt holding a 10-point cushion. That poll was conducted among 567 registered voters and had a margin of error of 4.11%.
