After months of confidence that public discontent with President Trump would lift Democrats back to power in Congress, some party leaders are fretting that their advantages in this years midterms are eroding amid a shifting political landscape.
Driving their concerns are Trumps approval rating, which has ticked upward in recent weeks, and high Republican turnout in some recent primaries, suggesting the GOP base remains energized. Whats more, Republicans stand to benefit politically from a thriving economy and are choosing formidable candidates to take on vulnerable Democratic senators.
One of their biggest sources of anxiety is the Senate race in Florida, where some Democrats fear that three-term Sen. Bill Nelson has not adequately prepared to defend his seat against Gov. Rick Scott, a well-financed former businessman handpicked for the race by Trump. Scott and Nelson are close in early polls.
Im concerned about the race. I think everybody is, said Ione Townsend, the Democratic Party chair in Hillsborough County, home to Tampa. Townsend said it will be hard to compete with Scotts money.
Democratic worries are mounting in the House, as well, where the party has been more confident of gaining the 23 seats it needs to retake the majority. Democrats are picking strong candidates in dozens of Republican-held suburban districts where Trump has lost significant support but recent surveys suggest the races may be tightening.

Praying that the RATS will indeed be flushed down the blue wave toilet where they belong!!
Add to that, another half dozen MAJOR Trump accomplishments that the Dems did not support and the fact that the Dems/media have only hate and vitriol which doesn't win elections.
“advantages in this years midterms are eroding amid a shifting political landscape.”
They are in eroding in the face of Trump’s winning and MAGA!
We need to Cantorize the weasels in the primary and rid the GOP of Bush League Republicans hell bent on turning the USA into North Mexico.
Then we can defeat the Democrats in D jerseys once we rid ourselves of the Democrats in R jerseys.
It had better get deadbeat republicans to help get the wall and other things.. done!
How dare they? Shitlib Dem rats go full squeeeeee and Vichy Republican swine clutch their pearls and topple onto their fainting couches.
Heh. I could swear that it looks like McCain in that boat. Lol
Every year little David Hogg has wished for a man’s chin each Christmas Eve. He never got one.
What are the odds Democrats/the Deep State are cooking up their next false flag operation to take the focus off of Trump’s success, and somehow blame him for the FF??
It seems that every time POTUS’s approval numbers reach a record high, there is an event that grabs the media’s attention away....
Examples: Las Vegas, Parkland
Research the timing of them and POTUS approval ratings just prior to their occurrences.
Don’t think David Hogg doesn’t have more than a little bit to do with this.
Gun Control has never achieved ANYTYHING, other than to LOSE elections for Democrats.
Strangely they never seem to figure that out.
My fear is one downturn in the DOW caused by Soros allies or just a correction will make the whole optimism evaporate.
Gas price rises, then inflation stories, then DOW drops. All duly reported breathlessly on TV news.
Let’s pray not.
