GOP Set To Win Massive Majority In House, Analysis Finds
Republicans are expected to take control of the House of Representatives with a potentially massive majority, according to Fox News Power Rankings.
The GOP is predicted to win between 225 and 255 seats in the November midterm elections, according to the Fox News Power Rankings, which uses data such as historical trends, fundraising and other polling to create projections for elections. Currently, there are 33 seats that the GOP can easily win, with another 30 seats considered as “toss-ups” come this November, according to the analysis.
One such seat is New York’s 18th Congressional District, which has a 65% chance of flipping red, according to FiveThirtyEight. The district was once a Democratic stronghold, but with redistricting Republican New York Assemblyman Colin Schmitt appears poised to win the seat.
“The issues at hand are economic and crime-related,” Schmitt told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Crime is affecting our community, and the economic issues are crushing us in the Hudson Valley.”
Roughly 56% of voters said that the economic state of the nation was the most essential issue to them this election cycle, according to polling from Republican State Leadership Committee.

The nation has seen a slight rightward shift with states such as Florida and minorities groups like Hispanics becoming more right-leaning, exemplified by the election of Texas Republican Rep. Mayra Flores in a special election.
Oregon’s 5th Congressional District could see its first Republican member of Congress ever, according to FiveThirtyEight. Republican Lori Chavez Ramirez is projected to cruise to victory against her leftist challenger.
Other outlets such as Real Clear Politics and FiveThirtyEight also predicted the GOP would win the House handily.
“Joe Biden’s failed agenda has led to record-high prices at the gas pump and grocery store, and put every vulnerable Democrats’ reelection efforts in jeopardy,” National Republican Congressional Committee Communications Director Michael McAdams told the DCNF.
The predictions by Fox News come at a time when President Biden’s approval numbers hover around 33% and Democrats are losing faith in his ability to win an election, according to a poll by The New York Times.

My opinion still!, Dem’s are so obsessed with hating TRUMP that they haven’t done anything CONSTRUCTIVE in over 6 years now! The public is sick and tired of it and the Caravan of the USA is running away from their party in droves! Haters will be haters but, there is a point to give up the ghosts. The current January 6 hearings are a complete disaster and is turning people off in massive proportions…. Russia and Trump ,was all a hoax by their party, FAILURE but they are still trying to find a thread to continue the vendetta??????? All the while Biden family has a HUGE scandal that the media is covering up for them on the Hunter deals and the white house involvement ( THE PEOPLE) are also turning off the national news stations that are dedicated to this cause….ENOUGH IS ENOUGH is the feeling!
