    Half of the likely voters in the United States said they disapprove of the Democrat-led $1.7 trillion, 4,155-page omnibus spending bill that was rammed through Congress last month to fund the government. At the same time, most agree it is a “disaster” for America. A Rasmussen Reports poll found half (50 percent) of the respondents disapprove of the $1.7 trillion, 4,155-page omnibus spending bill passed by Congress last month that was signed into law shortly after. Only 45 percent of the likely voters said they approved of the massive spending package. As Breitbart News reported, 18 Republican senators voted with...

    A near majority of Republican voters want to decrease foreign aid as Congress is poised to grant as much as $37 billion in aid to Ukraine. A Morning Consult poll released in late November found that 48 percent of registered Republican voters want to decrease the provisioning of foreign aid. The survey revealed that 48 percent of Republicans want to decrease involvement in other countries’ affairs. The survey also found that Republicans not only want the federal government to engage less with soft power and foreign aid, but 41 percent of GOP voters want to decrease the deployment of American...

    Republicans’ House majority in the next Congress climbed to 220 on Tuesday, when Republican Kevin Kiley defeated his Democratic opponent, Kermit Jones, in the tight race for California’s 3rd Congressional District. The Associated Press called the race for Kiley on Tuesday afternoon, two weeks after voters headed to the polls to cast their ballots in the eastern California district. Kiley, a California State Assembly member, won with 53 percent of the vote. Kiley’s win brings Republicans’ House majority to 220, while Democrats currently hold 212 seats. Three races are still uncalled by the AP: California’s 13th District, Alaska’s at-large district...

    The majority of Republican National Committee (RNC) voting members signed on to a letter on Friday endorsing current RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel for another term despite retiring Rep.

The members wrote that McDaniel has led the RNC well and made it “a stronger and more effective force for our cause.” “These are perilous times...

    Analysts at the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics released an analysis on Wednesday, less than two weeks before the midterms, stating that the Republicans will regain the majority in the House. “We now rate 218 House seats — the magic number for winning a majority — as at least Leans Republican in our House ratings,” the Center for Politics’ Kyle Kondik said in his analysis on Wednesday, meaning if the analysis is correct, GOP candidates will win the number of seats needed for the majority.

    CBS News on Sunday lowered its projection of a Republican House majority after the midterms as Democrats see glimmers of hope to salvage their standing in November’s elections. The network’s model, managed alongside YouGov, continues to predict Republicans will flip Democrats’ razor-thin majority in the House, but CBS now estimates Republicans will win 223 seats, down from 226 in August and 230 in July.

    Senate Democrats are bracing for the possibility for life under a divided government, with President Biden in office and a strong possibility of a Republican-controlled House. Democrats hope they can retain their majority in the Senate, where a number of political handicappers say the party is favored. That would give Democrats more leverage and congressional support for Biden over the next two years. But if the House does fall as expected, lawmakers expect partisan gridlock. Some Democrats are predicting government shutdowns and standoffs over raising the federal debt limit will take center stage. “If Republicans win control of the House,...

    Ohio Republican U.S. Senate candidate J.D. Vance responded on Tuesday’s broadcast of FNC’s “Hannity” to his opponent Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), saying that the “exhausted majority” needed to “kill and confront” the extremist Republican movement. Vance said, “This is a guy who, when he runs his scripted TV commercials, says that he wants to appeal to Trump voters, he wants to appeal to the entire state of Ohio, and yet when he’s unscripted, he’s saying that we need to confront and kill the entire movement. A majority of the people of Ohio, of course, voted for that movement in 2016...

    Most Americans are not worried at all or not too worried about contracting the Chinese coronavirus, even as public health officials warn of a “resurgence” this fall, a poll from The Economist/YouGov found. The survey asked respondents, “Taking into consideration both your risk of contracting it and the seriousness of the illness, how worried are you personally about experiencing COVID-19?

    PARIS (AP) — French President Emmanuel Macron’s alliance got the most seats in the final round of the parliamentary election on Sunday, but it lost its parliamentary majority, projections show. The projections, which are based on partial results, show that Macron’s candidates would win between 200 and 250 seats — much less than the 289 required to have a straight majority at the National Assembly, France’s most powerful house of parliament.

    RIO RANCHO, N.M. (AP) - A liberal super PAC is jumping into a New Mexico contested GOP U.S. House primary and running commercials in apparent support of a President Donald Trump ally that Democrats believe they can defeat in November. Patriot Majority PAC began airing television commercials Saturday attacking oil executive Claire Chase for previous critical social media posts about Trump while praising former state lawmaker Yvette Herrell for supporting Trump’s border wall. “There’s Santa Fe lobbyist Claire Chase who opposed President Trump, calling him an (expletive) unworthy of the office,” a voice says while pictures of Chase are aired....

    Former Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said Friday on CNN’s “OutFront” that the “vast majority” of Americans support lifting Title 42, which limits immigration during the COVID pandemic. Reacting to a federal judge blocking the Biden administration’s attempt to scrap Title 42, Lance Bottoms said, “There are many members of the party who support the president’s position in lifting Title 42. We know there are several Democrats who have expressed concern. But isn’t that the beauty of the Democratic Party? That you can disagree with the leader of the party and he not try to slash your throat, unlike what’s...

    Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is trying to grab the Reagan mantle in the GOP, campaigning for establishment Republican candidates and tying his message to the former president and longtime luminary of the party. “Today there are people in both parties who no longer share [Ronald] Reagan’s confidence and his unshakable faith in the American people, and they doubt whether we can or we should lead the free world,” Hogan says in a new digital ad provided to Yahoo News ahead of its release Tuesday

    A report by the Labor Department that inflation in March rose by 8.5 percent compared to a year ago is setting off new alarm among Democrats that their Senate majority is in serious trouble. The bad news for Democrats is that inflation is projected to be a problem for the rest of this year, there’s not much they can do about it in the short term and it is souring Americans’ view of the economy.

    Thirty-five Senate seats are up for grabs in November, but 11 of them could determine which party controls the Senate in the next Congress. Republicans need to gain a net one seat to take back the majority in the upper chamber, which is currently split 50–50 but controlled by Democrats because the vice president casts tiebreaking votes.

    Last week, Sen. Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) suffered a stroke and underwent brain surgery. He is currently hospitalized in Albuquerque. He is expected to return to the U.S. Senate in four to six weeks, assuming there are no further medical complications. However, during his absence, Democrats no longer have a majority in the Senate—Republicans have a 50-49 majority. This means that until Luján returns, a united GOP can block the Democrats’ agenda and there’s nothing the Democrats could do about it. This is actually a big deal. In addition to blocking the Democrats’ legislative agenda, Luján’s absence could potentially impact...
