Republican dreams of taking back Congress in 2022 are based on voter anger over a bad economy, but estimates show unemployment hitting a 50 year low and inflation dropping.

The GOP has been killing their own supporters to keep the coronavirus great, but those deaths may end up being for nothing if a good economy leads to a strong Democratic midterm performance.
