While things do still seem kind of up in the air when it comes to whether or not Nancy Pelosi will be the next Speaker of the House, it’s over in the Senate that any hope the Democrats may have had of retaking control of the Senate this November is fading fast as the much anticipated ‘blue wave’ seems to have now become little more than a ripple. That would be because the Democrats now appear to be in an uphill battle in November’s midterm elections as they struggle to overtake the GOP-led Senate. That according to an Axios and SurveyMonkey poll of key states released on Tuesday.
Although Democrats only need to pick up two seats to gain the majority in the Senate, they are struggling to control the 10 states that they already hold. These states are now predominantly red states with voters who are strong supporters of President Trump. They include Indiana, Missouri, Montana and North Dakota, all of which Trump won in 2016, while his Democrat opponent Hitlery couldn’t manage over 40 percent of the vote in any of those states. And I doubt the current, and rather incendiary, rhetoric we’re now hearing from Democrat leadership will help them in their cause.
And the chances of flipping most states where Republican senators are up for reelection now seems pretty slim, with states like Nebraska, Utah and Wyoming most likely a solid GOP win. Democrats’ only hope will be to replace ‘retiring’ RINO Jeff Flake from Arizona with one of their own, while simultaneously defeating GOP Sen. Dean Heller in Nevada. Midterm prediction polls show that in an effort to add two seats to Democrats’ existing 26, they will likely lose races in Nevada, Florida and Indiana, which will squash any chances of overtaking Republicans in the Senate races.
When Barry ‘O’ was elected in 2008 we were told that with his election we were entering into what was going to be 40 years of solid Democrat rule. And at the time the Democrats had 60 seats in the Senate and they controlled the House. Yet it was over the course of the next eight years that the Democrats lost 1000 legislative seats nationwide, including the House, the Senate, and then the White House. And now in their effort to turn things around the best strategy the Democrats can come up with is that Trump is a Racist/Misogynist who colluded with Russia in order to beat Hitlery.
The next election is less than four months away and it looks like all the Democrats are going to do is to continue to rage about President Trump. They are going to pretend they’re not for open borders, don’t favor immigrants over American citizens, and are not in favor of impeaching President Trump. Do they have a plan to improve jobs and wages? Do they have a better plan for dealing with North Korea and Iran? Because all I’m hearing from the Democrats is how they intend to ‘resist’ everything Trump does with everything they’ve got. If that’s leadership, then I guess I’m missing the point.
Democrats have been crying wolf for decades. And as a result, many voters have grown tired of their nonsense. And along with those blue collar Democrats leaving the party, this coming midterm election could well turnout to be a landslide for Republicans. Those Senate seats currently held by Democrats in Missouri, Florida, Indiana, West Virginia, and North Dakota could, after the dust finally settles, be in Republican hands. And RINO Flake’s seat too will likely remain under GOP control. And personally I don’t think Democrats will flip the House, but may gain some seats.
And you know, by all rights the Democrat Party should now be smaller than the Green Party as those who proudly identify as Democrats have moved further and further to the left. And the fact that it isn’t just goes to show you that there are still plenty of crazies spread all across our nation. But the last thing we need to be doing is to underestimate them because they have most of the ‘fake news’ media on their side and most of academia as well. And Democrats will continue to pose a threat to this country until the day comes when they are no longer a political force in this country!
And if all those who pay taxes, go to work every day to provide for their families get out and vote this November then this coming election will likely be no contest. But if these folks fail to do what needs to be done, then it will be the group comprised of the non-working and non-tax paying who will instead succeed in putting more Democrats back into office. The Democrats showed their true colors when they refused to help in getting badly needed tax reform passed and instead all voted against it. They made it clear that their ‘support’ for working class families is a lie.
Finally, there are times when I think that the Democrats have become their own worst enemy. Because instead of choosing to act like adults regarding the fact that their candidate lost the last presidential election, they’ve have chosen to throw a tantrum for nearly two years. And I’m just not sure how such behavior will convince any rational American voter that they are in any way worthy of being voted for. Now granted the nutcases who now seem make up the more vocal members of the party will buy into such nonsense as abolishing ICE, but it’s a hard sell to most others.
