In both the USA, the UK and in the EU countries inflation is running riot and effecting the living standards of millions of people.
In Italy and Sweden in recent elections the Governing Parties lost the general elections and the media are shouting that the people are case of especially Italy for parties associated with dictatorial governance. The real reasons are that the people are suffering under socialist ideology and in the case of Sweden from destruction of law and order, making the country statistically the most crime-ridden country in Europe. However, Sweden is also suffering from inflation disease symptoms anyway.
The mid-term election in the USA is a mere 15 days away and the polls are looking very bad for the Democrats. If the race for Governorship in New York and Michigan shows a Democrat leading by 2% signs are really bad for the Democrats, In the US the make-up of participation by especially the media outlets always favor the Democratic Party. If the polls show a 2% win by the Democrats the chances are it will be a 5% or higher loss by the Democrats. In essence the people are disgusted with the Biden Administration when opinion polls indicated that -
* 78% of the participants say that the USA is on the wrong track at present;
* the ordinary voters are now worse off than they were when Trump was President, and
* law and order and the open border policy of the Democrats are blamed for the chaotic situation on the Mexican border
On the whole suddenly some of the Democratic Party candidates are saying they are for control of the border and a stricter approach to law and order -but in view of their voting in the past 20 months belies that statement. Will the voters accept that they have had a change of heart on critical issues and will conduct themselves differently in future? The answer seems to be zero on both questions.
My guess is that the Democrats may lose as many as 60 house seats and 5 Senate races. But lets wait and see what happens.
In the meantime in the UK the Governing party is in chaos and the last CP Prime minister lasted just over 6 weeks before being forced to resign. Hundreds of thousands of protestors in the EU countries took to the streets to protest against inflation and energy shortages effecting their daily lives. How many EU Governments will collapse within the next 6 months?
The elephant in the room is the Ukraine War that has had direct inflation in all countries involved and the coming wi nter will have ghastly implementation of heating of homes sooner rather than later.
