Report: GOP has nearly 50 opportunities to win House seats from the Dems in 2022

A new report shows that Republicans have every chance to win back the U.S. House of Representatives in 2022. 

This week, the Congressional Leadership Fund (CLF) released a new report showing that Republicans have 47 opportunities to take House seats away from the Democrats in the 2022 midterm elections.

It’s more than doable

“House Republicans need just 5 seats to retake the majority, and with 7 Trump seats held by Democrats and 24 Democrats who got 52% or less last election, the list of 47 speaks to the difficult task ahead for Democrats in 2022,” the report reads.

The report goes on to present opportunities in rural and working-class districts, such as Reps. Ron Kind (D-WI-03), Jared Golden (D-ME-02), and Matt Cartwright (D-PA-08).

The CLF also argues that there are suburban districts that “will flip” Republican in 2022 and that there are going to be House vacancies that will be tough for Democrats to hold, such as Iowa’s 3rd district, Ohio’s 13th district, and Pennsylvania’s 17th district.

Some of the Democrats’ problems

In its three-page report, the CLF highlights several reasons why the Democrats are going to have a difficult time maintaining their lead in the House in 2022.

One reason is that some of their voters are abandoning them. The CLF pointed to Latino and Asian voters in particular, citing the 2020 election.

Another problem for the Democrats, perhaps even more important, according to the CLF, is that they have the wrong message.

“Americans are getting their first taste of life under total Democrat control in Washington in a decade,” the report reads. “It’s not what they ordered. From pushing working-class families out of jobs with fracking bans and pipeline cancellations to keeping schools closed, and hijacking COVID relief for a trillion-dollar progressive wish list, the Biden Administration has proven it will cave to the socialist left at every turn.”

This strategy in combination with the Democrats’ other strategy, namely, referring to all Trump supporters as extremists, isn’t going to get the job done in 2022, the CFL argues.

“History is on our side”

Lastly, the CLF points out that “since WWII, first-term presidents have lost 27 seats on average in their first midterm.” In fact, there have only been two occasions in the last century in which a first-term president gained seats in the House at the midterm.

Currently, Democrats have a 221 to 211 lead in the House. Republicans would need a net gain of five to take back over. If the CLF is right, then the odds certainly appear to be in the Republicans’ favor.

  1. I’m tired of the unscrupulous pattern of the congress today. Biden and Kamala are totally unfit for office and Nancy Pelosi and Schumer are complete hateful idiots who hate anything that anyone else suggests. It’s their way or the highway. I pray everyday they go down and go down big, but, the only way we can beat them out is if they don’t cheat and heaven knows they do it well. Well, two can do it better than one and we will do it by the book. Watch out Nancy and Chucky we are going to the max to get both the Senate and the House!!! Besides we have a new job waiting for both of you…it involves cleanliness , rubber gloves and a mask and maybe a clothes pin for your nose.

    1. I guarantee I will vote a straight Republican ticket, especially if gun control legislation reaches the Senate. Hopefully Sen. Manchin and others from rural areas will LISTEN and vote NO and take care of their constituents. I would care less if I read in the paper that Nancy Pelosi, Jackson-Lee, and her other buddies in Congress caught the corona virus with a terminal result.

  3. Nancy isn’t running anyway so her seat is open. Her district isn’t really important anymore. The replacement will be a junior. If democrats retain the house, the issue will be the new speaker🤔
    Schumer won’t have a problem because most conservative Republicans are moving out of NY. It is possible and certainly warranted but unlikely.

  4. If only that was true, we would not have anything to worry about. We all know how well the Democrats cheat , we also know they will do anything to win just to stay in power.

  5. my? is how can this be done as long as the democrats control the Voting like they do now unless the Voting fraud is stopped They aren’t going anywhere

  6. my Question is how are Republicans going to win any elections as long as the democrats contol the polls with Their Cheating and Fraud

  7. You either support America or you support the cabal. We have all enjoyed life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness living here. Millions have immigrated to America and become citizens, escaping totalitarian regimes. Regimes such as that don’t belong here. Players who do support that agenda are being exposed, be they on the Left or the Right. Things have ramped up the past two months and in a negative way for you and this country. Time to understand what’s occurring. Mainstream will never give you any truth.. research alternative sites to find it. Then decide what is for you- the light or the darkness.
