Winning: Polls Show Significant GOP Resurgence in Past Two Months
breitbart ^ | MICHAEL PATRICK LEAHY

Posted on 02/09/2018 9:57:36 AM PST by davikkm

Several recently released polls show a resurgence of Republican popularity among voters, as measured by President Trump’s approval ratings and the generic Congressional ballot. The Real Clear Politics Average of Polls, for instance, currently shows the generic Congressional ballot advantage for Democrats has dipped to 6.2 percent, the lowest it has been since May 30 of last year, and down seven points from the 13-point advantage they had as recently as a month and a half ago.

President Trump’s job approval rating has increased to 42.3 percent in the Real Clear Politics Average of Polls, his highest since May 13 of last year.

As Breitbart News reported, the much hyped “Blue Wave” Democrats hoped would power them to a net gain of 24 seats in the 2018 midterms needed to give them control of the House of Representatives appears to have reached its peak two months ago in December.

Democrats dismiss the recent trends as temporary rounding errors, pointing to the December victory of Democrat Doug Jones in the Alabama U.S. Senate special election, and this week’s special election victory by a Democrat in a Missouri state legislative district that usually is reliably Republican as true indicators of what they call voter fatigue with President Trump and his policies.

It’s good news but it’s still a long way to November.

I consider this to be total fantasy.

It is not enough to elect people in R jerseys if they are Bush League Republicans hell bent on amnesty for 30 million new Democrats.

AZ is being set up to elect Flake’s replacement as Amnesty Senator.
The Bush League Republicans are using Joe Arpaio’s ego to crowd out Kelli Ward, who is the reason Flake is quitting.
They want to sneak in McSally.

Not surprised.

The MSM is working double-overtime on the false narrative that Dems are going to win big in November, hoping that ignorant people will get on board.

Rasmussen has him at 49% on his DAILY tracking poll. I just checked this morning to see if the budget deal was a problem for PDJT. It wasn’t.

Why do people believe polls? Remember, HRC was a lock for the Presidency in 2016.

Go out and vote, folks. It is the way we stop those horrible demo_rats!

Check back around 02/25, when everyone has received a paycheck or two under the new tax legislation.

That’s going to put a dent in the negativism.

Poor guy! Who would ever name their child after Senator Depends?

Couldn't he change it to something more respectable? Like Mohammed Hussein or something?

They want to sneak in McSally.

Martha McCain wants to ride her test pilot status to fool the “military is always good” yokels in this state, just like McCain always has. If she wins, we have a female Flake in the senate. And all the usual clowns here who hide the state they live in but criticize Arizona for electing the losers we are stuck with will be out in force.

They are setting up a Hobson’s choice between Rino turncoat McSally and the far left bisexual Dem, Sinema, who will be portayed as a “moderate.” That’s the game and we can’t win.

That has been the game the Bush League Republicans have been playing for decades, forcing people into voting for their amnesty candidates.

As the federal tax income receipts start rolling in as the economy booms, the static analysis warriors will be greatly discredited. This is not a zero-sum game!

I agree, and have said so on a number of threads.

We’ve gotten pretty much what we wanted with the tax cuts, and what I consider to be limited spending increases.

This bill signed early this morning limits growth in spending to 2.5% per year over two years.

By Congressional standards, that’s a very paltry sum.

Folks hear $300 to $400 billion, and they go postal without thinking.

Federal tax receipts should about double under trump.

Even if the budget was allowed to go up by this same percentage every two years, it would come in at a little over 20% spending growth in 8 years.

Comparing a 100% increase in tax receipts to a 20% growth in the budget reveals a very large positive move.

Our current budget is $4.09 trillion per year. If that increases by 20% in eight years, it would become $4.91 trillion per year.

Our current tax income is $3.654 trillion per year. If it doubles, it would become $7.38 trillion per hear.

Now, compare that new budget figure in ten years of $4.91 to the new income level $7.38 trillion per year.

This is what we wanted. Folks are now going postal over it.

Strangest thing I’ve observed here.

Nobody will believe the GOP on anything, that will be the problem.
They’re liars, big time damned disingenuous liars who will claim to control the sun moon and stars if we just elect them.
WHY believe them about anything at all?
What do they stand for?
Nothing but business in DC as usual, that’s what.
They serve lobbyist, not us.
Elections only serve to keep us at bay.
We should be shooting mad by now but, we’re too busy staring at our phones and rear ending each other on the crumbling infrastructure.
They don’t serve us, they rape us.

Lot of kneejerks out there that don't think things through.

Trump knows what he is doing. Of that, I am certain.

Already tax receipts are way up for January - the first month of the tax cuts. I believe your scenario of federal income exceeding the budget will pan out if we stay the course. This will allow us to start paying down the staggering national debt.

Key is winning the November mid-terms for Trump. Send some people to Washington that will work with Trump to MAGA. It's all about turnout. Hatred of Trump by the Left will drive their turnout. Love of Trump and MAGA will drive our turnout. Love trumps hate. Wasn't that a campaign slogan? Time to use it against the hateful left.
