Redistricting Finalized For 2022 — GOP To Pick Up At Least 3 Seats In The House
Republicans just got more great news for the midterms.
Redistricting is being finalized and the Republicans are set to gain 3 to give seats because of it.
Republicans gained seats in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Kansas, Maryland, and Tennessee.
After accounting for incumbency, however, Republicans are actually the ones who have gained ground from redistricting: The GOP is positioned for a net gain of three to five seats in 2022 just thanks to the new lines alone. Republicans have benefited from their own brazen cartography in states like Florida and courts striking down Democratic gerrymanders in Maryland and New York. Republicans have also shored up their existing position by converting light-red districts into safer seats in states like Texas.

A recent poll found Republicans had a 6-point lead in the generic congressional ballot.
The 2022 midterm elections are now 165 days away, and Republicans have a six-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that, if the elections for Congress were held today, 47% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for the Republican candidate, while 41% would vote for the Democrat. Just four percent (4%) would vote for some other candidate, but another seven percent (7%) are not sure.
