The remorse that Biden voters are starting to feel about helping to allegedly elect a potted plant may be closer to the beginning than the end. According to Politico, polling in once Democrat safe districts showed that incumbents are in trouble.
Democrats elected from blue districts, who were cheerleaders for the administration months ago, are now touting their independence and willingness to challenge the administration.
One example of a flip-flopping Democrat is Rep. Kim Schrier from Washington. In April, the Seattle leftist proclaimed it was her “honor” to introduce President Biden to Seattle, which he won by 7 points in 2020. Still, just this month, Schrier released an ad bragging about how she was challenging Biden over soaring gas prices.
“She is claiming — because she finally looked at some polling and realized that he’s unpopular — that she’s this independent-minded free spirit that is fighting the administration,” Republican challenger and Army veteran Jesse Jensen said, according to Politico.
“And she’s been a rubber stamp for him every single step of the way.”
Biden’s Washington problem is a pattern, not an anomaly. Politico reported that Republicans are not only expected to challenge in 30 competitive districts, but nine more districts, which Biden allegedly won by 9 points or more, are now likely to be in play.
We got our hands on some GOP polling that shows Biden’s approval rating upside down in districts he won two years ago

The numbers are brutal for Democrats across the board, seeping into state-level races. Based on new polling, the Republican State Leadership Committee upgraded Nevada, Maine, Oregon and Washington to “Opportunities to Flip Chambers” on its state legislative target list.
The bad portends don’t end there. Rep. Tom Emmer, R-Minn., told Breitbart that Republicans “can flip any seat” Biden won “by 12 points or less.” That’s a staggering 37 seats, according to Emmer, who is chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee.
Emmer also noted that Republicans only need to win a net four seats to regain majority control.
