The anti-Trump backlash predicted by Democrat operatives who call themselves “journalists” and “pollsters” to propel a congressional takeover in the midterm elections is all of a sudden, not such a sure thing. Though many polls still show a Democratic takeover of the House, people not swilling the so-called “mainstream” media Kool-Aid knew this all along. Nevertheless, there are numerous reasons for increased GOP optimism as Nov. 6 approaches.
A new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll reveals President Trump’s job approval rating at 47% is his highest ever in this survey. Republicans also hold a 15-point edge on the question of which party best handles the economy. This is also the biggest lead for Republicans in the poll’s history, NBC News reports.
“There’s a switch that’s been flipped …”
“There’s a switch that’s been flipped …”
That latter figure bodes particularly well when you factor in that 38% of voters surveyed consider jobs and the economy to be their most important factors in determining how they vote.
After months of media reports that Democrat voter motivation was through the roof, analysts are now seeing Republican voter enthusiasm on the rise. “It’s a barnburner,” Bill McInturff, a GOP pollster who conducted the NBC/WSJ survey with Democrat Fred Yang, told The Wall Street Journal.
“There’s a switch that’s been flipped … They are engaging in the campaign and the process.”
Democrat Yang acknowledged that the poll results indicate the once-scripted certainty that Democrats were going to take the House has now entered into a “riptide of uncertainty [that] has been created with a surge of Republican intensity.”
Oh my. Are the Potemkin Village construction workers stepping away from their pretty facades in 2018 so they don’t end up looking as quintessentially foolish as they did when their infamous “Inevitability of Hillary” project collapsed into the dust two years ago?
Mobs and Migrants
President Trump has very wisely chosen to nationalize the midterm congressional races, knowing that the horrible optics of the unhinged national Democratic Party are the biggest single weakness Dem candidates face in races across the U.S. In this effort, he has been blessed by wild miscalculations by national Democrats and their media allies in recent weeks.Brett Kavanaugh
If Republicans do indeed hold on to the Senate and House, the ugly, vicious smear attack by Democrats on new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh will finally be officially recognized as a major political blunder of the first degree.
GOP pollsters found positive stirrings among the ranks as the Kavanaugh Senate hearing circus took center stage. “The Democrats’ attacks on Kavanaugh have really energized and united Republicans in a way we haven’t seen in the past two years,” Republican strategist Alex Conant told the McClatchy news service in early October.
“To see them attacking Brett Kavanaugh’s character feels like an attack on conservatism…. Any race where Republicans were losing because of an enthusiasm gap is now a competitive race.”
Thank you, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), for your pathetic last-minute use of Christine Blasey Ford’s completely unverifiable allegations against Kavanaugh as a Molotov cocktail thrown onto the steps of the Supreme Court.
An October Dream
Following right in the wake of that fiasco is an explosive event drawing the ever-predictable teary-eyed leftist media attention that will perfectly display Democrats’ insane policy beliefs on illegal immigration. The March of the Migrants from Honduras and Guatemala right up to (and through, if they get their way) our borders is an October Dream come true for Republicans.
“It’s manna from heaven,” ex-Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg told The Washington Examiner. “Donald Trump equals American patriotism and strength, strong military, strong borders, and law and order. This caravan reinforces this.”
Indeed, the invasion of our southern border falls right into Trump’s wheelhouse.
“Base voters are really fired up about illegal immigration, so the more Trump is talking about it, the better it is overall,” Ford O’Connell, a Republican strategist, told the Examiner.
“We don’t know if it’ll be enough, but we know the president has the biggest megaphone, and if anyone is going to make the message, he’s going to be the best person to deliver it in a time-sensitive way.”
In so many ways, it feels like 2016 all over again. As corrupt media and crooked pollsters preached for months on end that Trump was toast and Hillary Clinton might as well be sworn into office in August, enthusiasm for Trump never wavered among the American people.
When 100,000 people clamored to attend a Trump political rally for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in Houston the other day, we saw the same disconnect between media spin and reality.
Do not be deceived. The foibles and follies of the national Democratic Party will be on election ballots across America this November. Accompanying that is a grassroots Republican base that squarely stands with President Trump. The combination of Democratic ineptitude and staunch support for the Trump Agenda will serve Republicans very well at the polls on Nov. 6.
