2021 was a brutal year for Democrats.
Biden’s approval ratings hit rock bottom and the political atmosphere turned toxic for Democrats.
And Nancy Pelosi is worried her career could end in humiliation after receiving this devastating report.
During the 2020 elections, Republicans gained double digit seats in the House of Representatives and sliced the Democrat’s majority to the slimmest majority since World War II, shocking the “experts” and setting up the GOP for a strong chance to take back control of Congress this November.
Republicans only need to win a net gain of five seats to reclaim the majority in the U.S. House and remove Pelosi as Speaker.
And the election forecasters at the nonpartisan Cook Political Report’s final race ratings of 2021 show Republicans are the favorites to regain control of the House of Representatives in November.
NEW: @CookPolitical's 2022 House ratings for new districts, now that we're past the halfway point of redistricting. Still a long way to go, but Republicans clear favorites for control. https://t.co/mAdCOtLpRZ pic.twitter.com/2VN5sKWCzd

Democrats are also defending more toss-up seats than Republicans are in 2022 according to the Cook Political Report’s ratings.
Of course, the political atmosphere is expected to get worse for Democrats before Election Day.
The border crisis is growing worse by the day.
Inflation is surging.
And the Biden administration continues to push for more COVID mandates and restrictions on the American people.
During their first Midterm in office, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump all lost control of at least one House of Congress.
Based on historical data and current polls, Democrats are facing a certain defeat in November, with virtually every forecast showing Republicans are likely to score a huge victory.
And that’s leading to speculation that Nancy Pelosi will retire if Democrats lose their majority because few believe she would want to stay in Congress and serve as an ordinary member.
