Democrats will not lose US Senate seats in the 2022 Biden Midterm unlike the 2010 Obama Midterm.

In 2010, Obama's first Midterm US Senate Election, Democrats lost US Senate seats in

2)IN(OPEN Bayh-D)Coats-R
3)AR(Lincoln-D)Boozman-R
4)WI(Feingold-D)Johnson-R
5)PA(OPEN Specter-D)Toomey-R.
6)IL(OPEN Burris-D)Kirk-R.
ND,IN,and AR were in solid Republican states.
WI- weak Democratic incumbent in purple state.
PA- divided Democratic primary.
IL- Blagojevich scandal.
In 2022, there are no Democratic held US Senate seats in Solid Republican states.
The Democratic held US Senate seats up for re-election Tossup states are-
GA(Warnock-D)
AZ(Kelly-D)
NV(Cortez Masto-D)
NH(Hassan-D).
Democrats are going to hold onto
GA(Warnock-D)
AZ(Kelly-D)assuming Ducey-R runs.
NV(Cortez Masto-D)assuming Sandoval-R runs.
NH(Hassan-D)assuming Sununu-R runs.
Democrats are going to win Republican held US Senate seats up for re-election in 2022 in

2. MAYBE we won't...

...but, to be clear, we might not only lose Senate seats but control of the House unless Democrats actually show up for the midterms when we hold the White House as much as we do when we’re out of power.

That’s our Achilles heel as Democrats: either we get apathetic or disillusioned that our administration hasn’t accomplished everything we wanted, and stay home to “send a message.” This is one habit we have to break, if we’re not going to avoid a repeat of 1994 and 2010 (2014 as well) each of which guaranteed gridlock for the remainder of the administration’s term. Even if some of us feel disappointed that Biden may not have accomplished our preferred agenda items, we need to turn out, work, and give to the appropriate campaigns in 2022 just as strongly as we would had Mad King Donald won another term. Otherwise, our hopes are doomed to frustration.

3. Well, we shouldn't,

but there are no guarantees, as the filthy republicons will use everything they can to cheat and steal. And suppress every non-R voter possible.

Elected democrats have to stop looking the other way while that goes on.
