A major election forecaster is projecting the Republican party to win control of the U.S. Senate by a comfortable margin, a sign that President Joe Biden’s agenda ambitions will likely be considerably frustrated in the second half of his term.
FiveThirtyEight projects that the GOP is “slightly favored” to win the Senate, giving Republicans a 55% chance of taking control of that chamber after next week’s midterms.
Those numbers have shifted considerably in recent weeks. As recently as Oct. 15, the forecaster gave Democrats the 55% advantage; by Halloween of this year the two parties were in a dead heat, after which Republicans edged slightly upward.
The website also gives Republicans a considerable edge in taking the U.S. House next week, giving the GOP an 84% chance of seizing power in the lower house on Tuesday.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
