The midterm elections will surely not be good for the Democrats, and they will need to have some sort of miracle just to win this November midterm.
More than 30 Democrats announced their retirement long before the midterms, this means that Dems will surely receive a big smack from Red Wave in November.
Now, according to a Punchbowl News poll senior House staffers found that 60% believe that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will retire after the midterm elections. It happened despite the White House announcement that Pelosi will run for re-election.
According to the Breitbart report:
The poll also sampled general House staffers. Among the typical House staffers, 54 percent said Pelosi will retire. Congressional staffers are personnel that assists members of Congress and committees, answer constituent mail, write questions for committee hearings, conduct communication duties, and plot legislative maneuvers.
That more senior staffers believe Pelosi will retire likely comes from more experience and therefore carries more weight. Senior staffers told Punchbowl News Pelosi would not announce her retirement in the middle of a congressional session. But they do acknowledge Pelosi has previously said this would be her last term as speaker.
Tom Emmer, the National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman confidently believed that Republicans will take back the U.S. House of Representatives next year.
In an interview with Breitbart, Emmer noted “should find a candidate or candidates, they should share their treasure by supporting them financially, they should share their talents by offering to volunteer in a campaign, because look, the world is run by those who show up and those who show up and do the work, they own our freedom, and there’s never been a time like right now, Matt, to get involved and take a position.”
“If you sit back and be quiet, you’re not gonna be happy with what these socialist Democrats are gonna do to our country, cause this is no longer a choice between a degree of freedom — the right of someone to self-determine versus the size and scope of government — this is literally a choice between two fundamentally different views of the United States of America. On one side, the socialists, they wanna make all the decisions for you. On the other side, we still believe in free markets and the right of people to achieve their American dream on [sic] by hard work and playing by the rules,” he said.

Whether Pelosi will retire or not, Dems should be very worried that they will lose control of the House in the 2022 midterm.
This is after a new poll revealed that 68% of Republicans remain engaged ahead of 2022 while Democrats have seen their engagement slip to 57%, an 11-point cushion for the GOP.
The poll also added that Republican voters remain firmly in the camp of Trump, with only 16% of Republicans identifying as “non-Trump conservatives.”
