In November, the United States will hold elections for the House of Representatives and the Senate. American Jerry Bondelichek expects, as in the past, that the president’s ruling party will lose, this time the Democrats. “It would be a huge surprise if they could keep the house. At the same time, Democrats – which was not the case a few months ago – have a good chance of maintaining their majority in the Senate. Even high-ranking Republicans know that.”

According to Bundelichick, it is likely that US voters will make their decisions in the elections “by their financial portfolios.”

“Whether or not inflation is the president’s fault, and whether or not the price of gasoline is his fault, is a metric that a large portion of the electorate uses. Although the situation is improving now, it can be seen that the Democrats’ chances and President Joe Biden’s popularity are seriously undermining it.”

On the other hand, the subject of the elections is not support for Ukraine. To date, the majority of Americans support arms shipments. I think a successful Ukrainian attack can increase this support even more, because it gives hope of victory.”

However, foreign policy topics do not usually define elections in the United States, and almost no one – except for the pro-Trump Republican wing – is against supporting Ukraine. “It can hardly be a topic if the parties don’t bring it up,” Bondelichek says.

Trump and classified information

However, a topic that could affect the election is the investigation of former President Donald Trump on suspicion that he took documents that should belong to the state, including classified letters, to a private home after his term expired.

“The scraps we have are very disturbing. Secret documents like these have no place in the former president’s private residence. In terms of law, the archives do not belong to the president, but to the US government, that is, to all Americans. And documents related to nuclear weapons, allied and American, are perhaps the most sensitive information.” to be found,” notes the American Bondelich.

Trump defends himself by saying that he declassified the documents when he was still president. The American objected, saying, “There is no written evidence of that.” “These documents simply do not belong to him regardless of whether they are classified or not.”

Donald Trump still has a very loyal base among Republican voters, according to Bundelichick:

“They have what Trump has already said in the campaign, that he can shoot someone on Fifth Avenue in broad daylight and still not lose them. But more moderate Republicans, or swing people, can deter them.”

According to him, this was already evident in the by-elections in Alaska, where the elections are held in two rounds and the votes of unsuccessful candidates are recounted in the second round.

The American describes: “Quite surprisingly, a Democrat won there and managed to get a decent share of the vote from the Republican candidate in third place, and a portion of the Republican electorate also stayed at home.”

“This is exactly the kind of dynamic that Democrats want. They don’t need to convince all Republicans, but for most pro-Trump candidates, it will be enough for them if a portion of the electorate stays at home, or even decides to support a moderate Democrat.”
