Most voters don’t think Democrats have made a strong case to win support in the upcoming election, according to a poll conducted by the Convention of States Action and The Trafalgar Group.
Two-thirds of voters said Democratic leadership and President Joe Biden haven’t made a strong case to earn voters’ support in the 2022 elections, with only one-third believing they had, the poll found. The news comes amid numerous polls finding waning support for Democrats and predicting a GOP sweep in the upcoming midterms.
“In the final estimation, voters … determined that the current leadership is not getting it done, and believe Republicans will sweep big on election day,” Mark Meckler, president of the Convention of States, said in a statement shared with the Daily Caller News Foundation. “However, our previous polling shows that Republicans have also failed to make a strong enough case to voters, and thus should be mindful that–if they succeed–the public has high expectations for them to fulfill campaign promises and deliver solutions.”
Among respondents, 50.2% predicted Republicans will win both chambers of Congress and another 30.3% thought Republicans would win one chamber of Congress; only 19.2% think Democrats will maintain control of both chambers, the poll found.

Predictions varied based on respondents’ political affiliation: most Democrats thought their party would maintain control of one or both chambers of Congress and thought Democratic leaders had made a strong case for themselves, while the vast majority of Republicans thought Democrats hadn’t made a strong case for themselves and expected the GOP to take both chambers of Congress, the poll found.
The poll surveyed 1080 likely voters Oct. 25 – 30 with a 2.9% margin of error.
The Democratic National Committee did not respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
