    The Supreme Court could be a real skank in the scud pie… In April they’re going to rule on an abortion case… IF IF they strike down Roe v Wade the democrat base would be energized like a lightening strike… So the base could be energized independently of presidential approval. So Biden could be still sitting at a 40% approval rating and hold on to the senate….

    The real question is, what will Big Tech — the social media monopolies and the billionaires — do to help the Democrats win, in spite of historical trends which, largely* because of Big Tech, no longer apply.

    The political game is no longer what it was.  According to historical trends, Joe Biden’s coattails should have brought in a dozen congressman with him. Instead the “losing”candidate, Donald Trump, mysteriously turned out to have the coattails.

    *That the liberal media went from slanting the news, to outright suppression of the news, is also a factor.

    This sounds plausible, but it never actually seems to work. The anti-abortion folks usually cancel out the pro-abortion folks.

    Yes, except that we end up right where we are…

    Democrats win by 20 points, where they can. Republicans win by 20 points where they can. We end up with a 50/50 senate but a narrowly republican house…

    Rather, elections are decided on other issues.
