Nearly three-quarters of senior Capitol Hill aides believe Republicans will take back control of the House majority during the 2022 midterm elections.
Punchbowl News’ survey of senior Capitol Hill aides, the Canvass, revealed 73 percent think Republicans will take the speaker’s gavel from Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). Although this is down five percent from Punchbowl’s last survey, it still represents a strong majority of Hill staffers.
Republicans only have to flip roughly five seats to regain the House majority; Republicans lost the House majority during the 2018 midterm elections. The loss of the House stalled much of then-President Donald Trump’s legislative agenda, and the loss of the House majority might do the same for President Joe Biden’s.
