On Tuesday, former Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean said that “well-educated suburban people were sick” of Republican’s saying the 2020 election was stolen, and predicted that it will result in his party keeping the House in 2022.
Dean made his comments on MSNBC’s “The Beat.”

Dean Thinks Republicans Will Get Creamed
Pollster Cornell Belcher asked Dean, Vermont’s former governor, “You know, governor, I’m interested. If you look at what Republicans are doing and looking towards the mid-terms, I mean, what do you think about their positions for the mid-terms?”
“When you think they have to win back a lot of suburban districts here in order to take the House,” Belcher said. “A lot of college-educated white voters here who reject this.”
“We get this idea that Democrats will lose big in the coming mid-terms,” Belcher inquired. “What are your thoughts on that?”
Dean replied, “I think the danger for Republicans are the voter suppression laws being passed in all these states.”

Dean On GOP: ‘If The Election Were Held Today, We Would Kick Their Butts’
Dean then said Republicans are intent on “redirecting.”
The former governor said, “But their big weapon, their only weapon, is redirecting.”
“If the election were held today, we would kick their butts because I think the public, especially well-educated suburban people are sick of this,” Dean insisted. “It is not just well-educated white suburbanites. It’s well-educated suburbanites, period.”
“They are just sick and tired of all this stuff and they actually love America, and the Republicans clearly don’t,” Dean said.
Dean rejected the idea that Democrats are going to go down in the 2022 midterm elections.

‘I Don’t Buy For A Minute We Will Get Clobbered’
“So I don’t buy for a minute we will get clobbered in the midterms,” Dean declared. “The Republicans will do their damndest with redistricting to cost us some seats.”
He continued, “But for every seat, they pick up in a place like Texas they are losing one in New York or in Michigan. So I’m not that worried about it. I think we need to be on our toes. We need to get stuff done.”
Dean said, “Biden is doing the job that needs to be done. You know that this is a referendum on Joe Biden in the mid-terms.
“So far, he’s going to win that referendum,” Dean finished.
