Posted on 07/10/2018 3:15:27 PM PDT by detective
Democrats are in for an uphill battle in Novembers midterm elections as they struggle to overtake the GOP-led Senate, according to an Axios and SurveyMonkey poll of key states released Tuesday.
Although Democrats only need to pick up two seats to gain the majority in the Senate, they are struggling to control 10 states already held by Democratic senators. These states are now predominantly red states with voters who are strong supporters of President Donald Trump. They include Indiana, Missouri, Montana and North Dakota, all of which Trump won in 2016, while his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton couldnt even win over 40 percent of voters in any of those states, according to a Politico report.
Chances of flipping most states where Republican senators are up for reelection seems slim, with states like Nebraska, Utah and Wyoming most likely a solid GOP win, according to polling data by RealClearPolitics. Democrats only hope will be to replace GOP Sen. Jeff Flake from Arizona as he retires with one of their own, while simultaneously defeating GOP Sen. Dean Heller in Nevada.

I wonder why.
Im pretty worried about Arizona. I think the bisexual dem may just take Jeff Flakes old seat
In my younger days I lived in Scottsdale. Are things really THAT bad in AZ as you say?
I would imagine that Flake could get excited about a bisexual dem taking his old seat...
Even if that happens, which is unlikely, dems are going to lose a few. Nelson in Florida comes to mind.
Looking bad for Dems at midterms.......best news of the day.
“I think the bisexual dem may just take Jeff Flakes old seat”
I think Jeff Flake’s seat has been taken many times by bisexuals and homosexuals.
Looks like we get 4-6 seats.
We've experienced a massive influx of Californians and Mexicans, two groups who tend to vote for the party that gives them other people's money.
“Looks like we get 4-6 seats.”
Unless the Republicans totally screw up(and that is possible) I think the Dems will lose at least 6 seats.
Let us pray at they GOP doesn’t sprint up and snatch defeat from the teeth of victory.
I resisted Limbaugh’s ‘the media are the real leaders of the Democrat party’ for quite some time but the evidence is hard to ignore.
The Democrats seem to have completely forgotten that candidates win elections ie people vote for people.
Part of their reverie is that Obama was elected because he was black despite being, for all practical purposes, a Pacific Islander. But they put his win down to successful campaigning. Bull.
Another part may be that the Clintons kneecapped, blackmailed, outspent or merely killed off any threat. They won by default and far too many people believed it was down to their political/policy acumen.
The last part is the hypnosis resulting from the media’s daily screechfest. Dem leaders watch MSNBC and CNN and actually believe the networks represent anything resembling a critical mass of voters, let alone a majority view on any subject.
Dems love the snark. They love being on TV. They love being told they’re funny when they’re about as funny as cancer.
They are fooling nobody but themselves and the media’s mirror, like that in Snow White, flatters to deceive.
We are tired of McCain and Flake and they want to give us a female version of those traitors in Martha McSally. Many of us will stay home and let Sinema win. We are sick of voting for the lesser of two evils and then being called names for doing as the party says. The GOP-e always wins the primaries. We are screwed either way.
Wisconsin is not looking good - 2 good GOP candidates are cutting each other up campaigning in the Primary. Tammy Baldwin is sitting back watching the battle.
Ohio is a complete disaster - Sherrod Brown up 15%+ and will walk in
It's because every time they or one of their constituent groups appear on TV, they come off as a bunch of bat guano crazy lunatics who just escaped the asylum.
Take nothing for granted.
They were never a head...the media trying to depress the GOP vote..now they have to start telling what the polls are saying...Probaly way better than the polls they do..
Any way it is the economy stupid..thats all that matters...jobs and no stock market crash...
Plus Trump is running on all cyliners right now..
And the democrats are acting like crazies...think 1968..
I bet Trump is waiting till after the primary in Aug. to come to Wisconsin.
Keep in mind that incumbents have a huge advantage in most Senate races. That’s how you end up with Democrat Sherrod Brown up by 15 points in 2018 after Republican Rob Portman won his re-election bid in 2016 by more than 20 points.
