Democrats are optimistic about the 2022 elections because of the FBI’s raid on former President Trump and the Inflation Reduction Act. Republican leaders say Democrats aren’t reading the crowd and that these topics are energizing the conservative base.
Heritage Action’s Jessica Anderson cautioned that the Biden presidency and the left are promoting “extreme social and climate agendas” Americans notice. For both inflation and government intrusion, American citizens are more inclined than ever to support conservatives, Anderson said. Due to the Biden administration’s and Democrats’ disastrous economic policies, some American families must select between buying classroom supplies and gas.

President Joe Biden and his presidency pledged the Inflation Reduction Act, signed on August 16, will lower power, prescription medicine, and health care costs for American families, battle the climate crisis, decrease the deficit, and pressure the biggest companies to pay their “fair share of taxes.” Biden signed the measure saying that the American people triumphed and special interests lost. “The American people won, and the special interests lost.”
Republicans are concerned that poorer Americans may face more audits with $80 billion in extra IRS budget (allowing for 87,000 new personnel). Anderson claimed conservatives oppose the IRA for more than “reckless government expenditure.” Americans are concerned about the expanding authority and scale of the federal bureaucracy.
“As the Left passes this legislation to add another 87,000 IRS agents, the American people also see the way our federal government is treating a former president by raiding Mar-a-Lago,” she added. Voters realize that if the state can treat a past leader so harshly, it can attack middle- and working-class Americans.
With polling suggesting they had virtually overcome the enthusiasm gap with Republicans, Democrats are apparently feeling optimistic heading into the elections. They think the FBI raid on Trump’s Mar-A-Lago will help them.
Cesar Ybarra, VP of Policy at FreedomWorks, said the raid was unprecedented and shows how crooked government agencies have become. He claimed the previous two weeks had energized conservatives. “Ask our activists. They’re tired of financing political agencies without accountability.”
Trump’s forecasts are similar. The former president claimed the raid at Mar-a-Lago might help Republicans gain more House and Senate seats. Polls reveal that some Republican ground lost in recent weeks has been made up by the FBI’s clandestine Break In, which shouldn’t have happened.
Democrats think Roe v. Wade will unite voters this autumn. Since Dobbs vs. Jackson, activist groups like the Women’s March have mobilized people to vote in the midterms. Some speculate that a pro-abortion vote may happen this fall after a pro-life setback in Kansas.
“What happened in red Kansas last night is a reflection of what is happening across the country and what will continue to occur through the November elections,” said Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer in august after Kansans decided to vote against an amendment to the constitution that would allow the state prohibition or severely restrict abortions. “If it’s going to happen in Kansas, it’s going to happen in a whole lot of states.”
Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, told The Daily Wire that Democrats are seriously incorrect if they assume Americans accept “abortion on demand up to birth.” Only 10% of Americans support them, Dannenfelser claimed. 72% of Americans would restrict abortion to 15 weeks when unborn infants experience pain. B. Anthony List’s president cited the 2021 Virginia governor election as an instance of Republicans going on the attack against extremist Democrats.
Terry McAuliffe avoided openly answering whether he would limit abortions, vowing to “defend women’s individual rights.” Glenn Youngkin’s team called McAuliffe “the most radical pro-abortion politician in America.” McAuliffe spent millions on ads accusing Youngkin of harboring a “far right” abortion agenda, while a Fox News voter study after the election revealed only 5% of Virginia voters saw abortion as “the most critical issue confronting Virginia” and favored Youngkin over McAuliffe by a 12-point margin.
Dannenfelser said pro-life Republicans have an edge when they expose their opponents’ fanaticism.
