Do Dems Think They're in Trouble Yet? Reuters Generic Congressional Ballot
In today's Reuters Poll, when asked "Thinking about the elections in 2018, if the election for U.S. Congress were held today, would you vote for the Democratic candidate or the Republican candidate in your district where you live?" respondants chose Republicans by a 1.4% margin. That brings the latest multi-poll average to less than a 3% advantage for Democrats.
And the trend is bad. The average has been dropping steadily for weeks. As of today, there is absolutely no sign of any "blue wave"
And in yesterday's primaries across the country, Democrats chose candidates with particularly left leanings, even as the country seems to be rejecting progressivism.
And this, just as the corruption of the previous administration is starting to be officially exposed. It will need to be investigated. That will take time, probably months and months. That will be newsworthy. Candidates will be asked to condemn it or defend it.
I've been describing Dems as people with their hair on fire, running in circles, babbling hysterically. Maybe this will calm them down. They have some SERIOUS problems now.
