In 1992, Bill Clinton campaign strategist James Carville coined a slogan that resonated with voters – "It’s the economy stupid." For Republicans today, "Stop the Stupid" would be a more appropriate campaign slogan given the crises President Joe Biden and his Democrat allies in Congress have either caused, enhanced or failed to address – from the sagging economy to inflation, an energy shortage, open borders, rampant crime, and the threat of Armageddon (I’m sure I missed a few). I saw a simple yard sign earlier this week that appropriately said – "Fix Things, Vote Republican." That really said it all.
American voters seem to get this and the potential for a red wave is growing. Numerous recent polls suggest Republicans will easily retake control of the House of Representatives on Election Day next month. A Monmouth University poll released last week found that 47% of Americans want Republicans to lead Congress versus 44% who prefer Democrats. Republicans also have recently taken the lead in RealClearPolitics' Generic Congressional Vote survey, a somewhat rare event for the party.
Should the election go as expected, GOP control of one or both houses of Congress will thankfully mark the beginning of the end of Biden's disastrous presidency. At the very least, Republicans can stop the reckless spending that has led to historic inflation, declining real wages, and negative economic growth. It will put a nail in the coffin of Democrats' radical legislative priorities. And it will allow Republicans to start bringing the economy out of recession and stagflation while laying the groundwork for meaningful legislative accomplishment and accelerated economic growth following the 2024 election.
