WATCH: Obama Adviser Admits Dems Are ‘Stunningly Underwater’ Ahead of Midterms


There is a growing consensus on both sides of the political aisle that Republicans will gain control of Congress after the upcoming midterm elections.

A combination of inflation, global crises, and a far-left social agenda has caused many Americans to turn away from the party currently in power.

It’s gotten so bad that even a top adviser to former President Barack Obama is acknowledging the truth.

Of course, Rattner is not alone in issuing such a bleak assessment.

As far back as January, Democrats were scrambling to put forward a cohesive message meant to convince Americans to keep them in power.

According to the New York Post:

House Democrats are losing sleep that the looming midterm elections could be a wipeout, and will grant Republicans firm control of the chamber, insiders on both sides of the aisles told The Post.

“If we don’t fix things now, we will get mauled in November,” said one battleground Democratic member of Congress. “Anyone in a tough district knows it. The rest have their head stuck in the sand.”

He said inflation, spiraling urban crime, and supply-chain shortages are key issues Dems need to turn around.

Democrats control the White House, Senate and House, but the margins are paper thin. The Senate is divided 50-50 and the party clings to a mere 10-seat advantage in the House. The GOP would need to flip six seats this November to grab the majority.

Prominent politicos from both parties have spoken out on the seriousness of the situation.

NATIONAL POLL: Do You Trust Fox News?

For its part, CBS News is said to be hiring an increasing number of Republicans because executives believe the GOP will come out on top in November.

According to Business Insider:

A CBS News executive told staff earlier this month that the network was hiring more Republicans as analysts because he believed there would “likely” be a Democratic wipeout in the 2022 midterm elections, The Washington Post reported on Wednesday, citing a leaked recording it obtained.

Neeraj Khemlani, a CBS News copresident, made the remark just before the announcement that the network had hired Mick Mulvaney, who briefly served as President Donald Trump’s chief of staff, as an analyst. The decision sparked internal backlash, The Post reported.

Here’s a full clip of Rattner’s remarks.

Do you believe Republicans will regain control of Congress in November?
