(RoyalPatriot.com )- Everyone knows at this point that the Democrats will struggle to maintain their majorities in the House and the Senate in this year’s midterm elections – and it’s mostly President Joe Biden’s fault.

Only a single Republican-held district, which was Illinois 13th, is in the “lean Democrat” column.
If you’ve never heard of The Cook Political Report before, it’s a nonpartisan report that analyzes polling and other data on a rolling basis to determine the political makeup of the country.

Things are looking good for the Republicans unless President Biden and Nancy Pelosi manage to pull a rabbit out of their hats before the fall…
