(NewsGlobal.com)- President Joe Biden isn’t doing Democrats any favors this year, with his approval rating lingering in the mid-to low-40 percent level and the Build Back Better plan blocked in Congress.
Kitchen table issues like record-high inflation and sky-rocketing cost of living are adversely affecting Americans across the country. It is largely predicted that voters will be venting their frustrations at the polls in November’s midterm elections.
Eight Democratic House districts were recategorized as “more challenging” on Wednesday, according to The Cook Political Report, raising the total number of Democrat-held House seats in toss-up territory or worse to 27.
According to the latest research, the 3rd and 4th Congressional Districts in Nevada, as well as the 7th Congressional District in Virginia, went from “leans Democratic” to “toss-up,” while the 3rd and 4th Congressional Districts in New Jersey and New York went from “safe” to “likely Democratic.”
According to the survey, Indiana’s 1st Congressional District, North Carolina’s 1st Congressional District, and New York’s 19th Congressional District have shifted from probable to leaning Democratic.
The study defines “likely” as seats that “are not now considered competitive but have the potential to become engaged.” Seats “considered competitive elections, although one party has an advantage” are classified as “lean.” “The most competitive category, where any party has a good chance of winning” is how “toss-up” is defined.
According to the report, there are only 12 Republican seats in toss-up or worse categories, which means that the GOP probably needs to win just five seats to retake the House.
The report noted that the list wouild likely grow longer once Florida and New Hampshire complete their redistricting processes.

Politico reported in mid-February that internal Democratic polls indicated that Republicans are gaining on cultural issues and that Democrats are in serious danger of losing their flimsy congressional majorities.
