Sen. Ron Johnson, a Wisconsin, Republican just got some very good news thanks to a new Marquette poll that has him taking the lead over radical leftist challenger Mandela Barnes in an important Senate race. Technically, at this point, every Senate race across the United States is critically important, as the GOP seeks to take over both chambers of Congress.
Johnson, who was trailing Barnes 45 percent to 52 percent back in August, is now ahead of Barnes by one percentage point as the results sit at 49 percent to 48 percent. But that’s not the only good news, as Breitbart News says the poll has revealed that Barnes’ approval rating has fallen significantly.
Only 38 percent of individuals polled approve of Barnes, while a total of 41 percent disapprove of the Democrat, which is a big tick down from the 43-27 percent he was at back in August.
Breitbart provides further details concerning the poll:
The poll represents a notable turnaround in potential fortunes for one of the most radical-left candidates in the 2022 cycle. Barnes, who mostly evaded the national spotlight before August, has been put in it since Labor Day, when midterm campaigns heat up.
The radical Democrat has been the focus of intense pressure from Johnson, a conservative incumbent who has slammed Barnes for supporting President Joe Biden’s inflationary policies, advocating for allowing felons to retain the right to vote, and defunding what Barnes calls “over-bloated” police departments, all while spending large amounts of state money (he is the lieutenant governor) on security for himself during a crime wave in the state. According to a MacIver Institute, murders increased 62 percent, and violent crime rose 8.85 percent between 2019 and 2020.
Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL), chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), has also made considerable investments in the race, highlighting Barnes’s soft on crime policies. Scott’s early investment seems to be paying big dividends, despite Sen. Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) negative perception of Scott’s management of the committee.
“Unfortunately, many of the very people responsible for losing the Senate last cycle are now trying to stop us from winning the majority this time by trash-talking our Republican candidates,” Scott stated providing push back at the beginning of September.
There are quite a few policies stances that are hurting Barnes at the moment. One of those is the fact that he’s rather soft on crime, which is something that people are very much against as the crime rate continues to spike in major cities across the U.S.
Another big one is that he’s all gung-ho on abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement, otherwise known as ICE, handing out driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, and also granting in-state college tuition to illegal immigrants.
Believe it or not, Barnes actually gets more radical. The Democrat is all about total government-run healthcare, tossing out the Senate filibuster, packing the Supreme Court, and of course, passing the Green New Deal into law.
This guy is a socialist to the core of his being, folks. Which is why we need to be pulling hard for Johnson in this Senate race. We do not need someone dangerous like this in Congress. There are already too many radicals in the proverbial kitchen cooking up disasters for the American people.
In new Marquette Law School Poll, 49% of likely voters in WI support Republican incumbent Johnson in the Senate race and 48% support Democratic challenger Mandela Barnes. In August, among likely voters, Barnes was supported by 52% and Johnson by 45%. #mulawpoll
