WASHINGTON, Oct 25 (Reuters) - The White House has lowered its earlier optimism about the midterm elections and is now worried that Democrats could lose control of both chambers of Congress, administration officials say.
Recent polls have shown Democrats who once had comfortable leads in some Senate races on a knife's edge, and Senate elections that were considered toss-ups between the two parties now leaning Republican as high inflation persists.
The House of Representatives, which Biden and some allies and advisers predicted Democrats could hold earlier this year, is decisively swinging for Republicans, polling analysts including FiveThirtyEight say.
Losing control of one or both houses of Congress will profoundly shape the next two years of Joe Biden's presidency, with Republicans expected to block legislation on family leave, abortion, policing and other Biden priorities while pushing new laws to curb immigration and spending, using the debt ceiling as leverage.
Republicans are also expected to launch investigations into Democratic spending and the business dealings and private life of the president's son Hunter. Some lawmakers say they hope to impeach Biden, his cabinet members or Vice President Kamala Harris.

Driving the recent re-think: the durability of inflation concerns among key voting groups, and trouble fighting Republicans' message across several campaigns that Democrats' support for criminal justice and policing reform means they are soft on crime, administration officials said.

I wonder how much longer Joe Biden and his handlers think sky-high inflation will last now?

Looks like declaring it merely temporary and Biden "doing all he can" to lower it isn't so successful, and it appears voters know it.

Soft on crime? Who could get that idea from Soros-backed dumbass DAs doing all they seemingly can to keep folks out of jail?

They are hoping it ends before the national oil reserves runs out. Otherwise Brandon will have to explain the catastrophic losses tax payers are going to absorb replacing every last barrel of oil.

Funny how Biden vowed to "restore our standing in the world", only to have Putin shit on him and OPEC reduce him to a beggar for oil before the midterms.

He'll just blame it all on Trump and the right like he does everything else.

Trump wanted to top off the strategic oil reserves when oil was about $30 per barrel but senate dems put a stop to that. Now dementia boy says he wants to fill it up when oil drops to $70 per barrel. Great job, dems. /s/

Sure, why not?

Thus far, Democrats have blamed the pandemic, Putin, and OPEC. Of course Republicans can't be too far behind since none of it is sticking with smart voters.

My next prediction.    

When Republicans gain control of the house and perhaps the Senate, dimbulb will immediately start accelerating his blame game on them for all his fuck ups.

Its coming .... bet on it.

Without a doubt.

Biden and his handlers are already trying to float that trial balloon.

I don't think the majority of voters are dumb enough to fall for it, though.

Hell, Biden and Company have tried to blame the border "not-a-crisis"- crap on Republicans.

Pretty fucking weird that Democrats can insist there is no crisis and yet somehow try to blame an Administration almost 2 full years removed from office for Biden and his handlers' failures.

I bought a 2008, Jetta TDI diesel.  I loved the 236 lb-ft of torque, the awesome DSG transmission, the clean energy federal subsidy, the cars handling and interior and I thought that I was helping the environment. 

Surprise, surprise, those crafty German engineers pulled a fast one over our federal and state governments. Without the Univ of WV we might never have known about this cheating.

I hated giving up a car that I really enjoyed driving, but the settlement was too good and US diesel fuel remained to expensive.

2020 Ram Eco-diesel truck.    
Mainly for the good mileage but I do love the truck.    

Interestingly, the big three had the some of the same diesel emissions issues as Volkswagen and others but it wasn’t as widely published.

But some hopes were dashed earlier this month by a higher-than-expected inflation figure and many polls showing inflation is still voters' top concern.

THIS will be the Democrats undoing.

By failing to acknowledge that voters tend to vote their own personal finances, they ignore reality.

Somewhere, James Carville is wondering what it must take for Democrats to join the world in reality.

They've spent two years ignoring the economy and ridiculing concerns over inflation while focusing on a riot and ensuring that men get to play women's sports. And their closing pitch is that the state has no interest in keeping kids from getting sterilized and mutilated.

I am almost positive Democrats will be shocked, SHOCKED, I tell you, by the results of the midterms. And when they perform their usual autopsy of the midterm elections, they will be even more shocked to learn that many voters don't give a flying fuck about some guy wanting to be a woman or some woman wanting to be a guy--they just want low inflation, fair taxes, sane and enforced immigration policies, criminals put away, and lower energy costs, especially for gasoline.

Social justice warriors best learn that if they wish to govern.

And they'll walk away thinking the problem was they aren't focused on race and transgenders enough. They'll double down on the  crazy.  They'll make one of the squad the new leader when Pelosi quits after the election.

Probably.

Personally, I would love to see one of the Squad put in as leader of the Democrats.

Thankfully, they will be the minority leader.

It would be a great boon to the GOP.
