Things are looking pretty good for Republicans a year out from the 2022 election.
Just as they looked good a year out from the 2020 election.
USA Today reported, “Why was Joe Biden in Ohio yet again? Because 2022 is a now-or-never moment for Democrats.”
The story hinted that Biden stole the 2020 election.
The story said, “Biden didn’t do any better against Trump in 2020 than Hillary Clinton did in 2016; both Democrats lost Ohio by 8 points. Republicans comfortably won every statewide office – even though the Republican speaker of the Ohio House, Larry Householder, was arrested a few months before the election. In July of 2020, Householder and four others were charged with taking $60 million in bribes for a bailout of the nuclear power industry in the state. Last month, the Ohio House of Representatives took the dramatic step of expelling him.”
Ohio was a bellwether from 1860 on, missing only a couple of elections. If Biden lost as big as Hillary did in 2016, that means he should have lost the entire election as she did, especially since Trump added 12 million voters to his total in 2020.
Biden’s early campaigning in Ohio doesn’t seem to help especially when his townhall was half-empty.
He is the best asset Republicans have now. Democrats portray him as Uncle Joe and people seem to agree.
