The Biden Administration is completely out of touch with American families. They don’t want more government control of their lives. In fact, they are sick of it. The latest NRSC Suburban Battleground Survey shows just how Republicans can and will win back the majority in 2022 by bringing back suburban voters to the Republican side.

Opinion: Republicans are testing messages to reverse their suburban slide, and education is a winner 

Opinion by James Hohmann

The National Republican Senatorial Committee has been testing dozens of potential messages that might claw back suburban voters who drifted toward Democrats during Donald Trump’s presidency, and lines of attack related to education show as much potential for the midterms as inflation, immigration and crime.

I obtained a 45-slide PowerPoint recently presented to Republican senators that summarizes findings from a previously unreported internal poll of 1,200 likely voters in 2022 suburban battlegrounds. Notable results included:

  • Seventy-eight percent agreed that “many public-school systems in America are failing and children are falling behind the rest of the world.”
  • Sixty-five percent agreed that “allowing biological males to compete against women in high school and college sports is hugely unfair and will erase many of the gains women have made in athletics over the last 50 years.”
  • Fifty-eight percent agreed that “critical race theory should not be taught in schools” because “children should not be told they are inherently racist simply because of the color of their skin.”

Democrats traditionally hold advantages on education, but parental anger at learning loss caused by school closures has shifted the landscape. Many moms and dads blame recalcitrant teachers unions, to whom the Democratic Party is beholden, for slow reopenings. Mask mandates in the classroom poll well but have added to tensions.

And Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), the chairman of the NRSC, intends to surf the wave of backlash. Senate challengers plan to emphasize support for “school choice” and “parental involvement” in commercials and on the stump next year, he said.
