The writing on the wall for Democrats as far as the midterm elections are concerned has been obvious for quite some time now. But fresh polling out on both the sham ongoing Capitol riot “investigation” and also on what direction a majority of Americans feel America is headed provides further evidence that Democrats are likely to face a red tsunami in November that could perhaps reach levels not seen before in American history.
First up is a poll from CBS News/YouGov which shows that on the priorities list for the American people, “investigating” the Capitol riot ranked very low on the list. The top concerns for voters were inflation, the economy, and crime, all issues Joe Biden has been polling poorly on for months now:

Relatedly, the latest AP-NORC poll shows that an “overwhelming and growing majority” of people believe the nation is on the wrong track. That includes a whopping 78% of Democrats:
An overwhelming and growing majority of Americans say the U.S. is heading in the wrong direction, including nearly 8 in 10 Democrats, according to a new poll that finds deep pessimism about the economy plaguing President Joe Biden.
Eighty-five percent of U.S. adults say the country is on the wrong track, and 79% describe the economy as poor, according to a new survey from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. The findings suggest Biden faces fundamental challenges as he tries to motivate voters to cast ballots for Democrats in November’s midterm elections.
Inflation has consistently eclipsed the healthy 3.6% unemployment rate as a focal point for Americans, who are dealing with high gasoline and food prices. Even among Democrats, 67% call economic conditions poor.

As I’ve said before, if kitchen table voters are getting hit hard in their wallets and pocketbooks come election time, the president’s party is going to get trounced in the midterms, even if he’s performing well in other areas. It just so happens that in this case, Joe Biden isn’t performing well on any issue despite his administration’s wild spin to the contrary.
And as far as the January 6th show trials are concerned, maybe voters would view it as more of a priority had Democrats done more than just say they had the goods on former President Donald Trump. As it stands now, some 18 months or so after the Capitol riot, Adam Schiff and Company still can’t prove Trump intended to incite supporters in order to get them to breach the Capitol and/or was involved in some vast alleged conspiracy plot to subvert the democratic process or whatever.
In fact, just this week Democrats utterly embarrassed themselves by showcasing the supposed “bombshell” testimony of a “witness” who actually hadn’t witnessed anything at all, and key parts from her third-hand story are reportedly about to get debunked by Secret Service agents.
Who knew that after four years of routine “walls are closing in” nothing-burgers from rabidly partisan Democrats like Schiff who often promised big but always failed to deliver (and who continue to do so) that majorities have grown weary of that type of empty rhetoric and game-playing and are more interested in issues that impact their families and their bottom lines?
As it turns out, everyone knew – except for Capitol-riot-obsessed Democrats who are set to find out the hard way in November that their warped priorities are not in line with those of most people in America.
