The other threads haven't been used in a month or two, and they have dated titles so I started a new one. The polling doesn't look good today for Democrats in the midterm. This isn't just an ideological election, but one that pits democratic values against authoritarian ones. We have over 300 election deniers running as Republicans this year, many are in line to become governors or senators. And then we have Herschel Walker who says he's going to look out for the rights of Martians. Our politics just keep getting stranger and so much worse. While I think the House is lost, there are so many Senate races within the margin of error that it's difficult to tell what will happen. Hopefully Democrats can at least hold on there, but I'm not very optimistic. The high inflation rate is really hurting prospects this year too.
