WATCH: Morning Joe Predicts Republicans Will Suffer Electorally for Guns and Abortion Takes

The political party that is not in control of the government usually has an advantage during the midterm elections. And Republicans were set to have a strong year in 2022. Over the last year, though, the party has committed a number of errors that could stop its momentum.

Joe Scarborough analyzed the upcoming races on Monday morning. The Morning Joe host predicted that GOP candidates would suffer for their positions on gun control and abortion.

Scarborough began, “I just want to underline, again, these extreme positions that Republicans are taking in Washington and across the country, they are extreme positions even if you look where most Republicans are. Most Republicans don’t believe, like Texas Republicans believe, that a mother should be allowed to die on an operating table, instead of having the protections that the federal government is trying to have that says you can’t let a mother die on an operating table if she is having severe complications from a pregnancy.”

The host continued:

“Guns, every day we see another example. In Indiana yesterday, I believe, I think I read they have open carry laws; open carry laws are going all over the country. Republicans don’t want to do anything about 18-year-old crackpots being able to go and buy AR-15s, and we read the horror of the Uvalde story, and there is a horror. The bad decisions that were all made, all of that started with an 18-year-old being able to buy an AR-15. Get this, 400 so-called, about 400 so-called good guys outside, and they stayed outside because Republican lawmakers will not regulate the purchase of weapons of war. That’s what it all boils down to.”
