Posted on 11/04/2018 7:20:21 AM PST by Enlightened1
The blue wave is now a bygone figment of a liberal Hollywood fantasy. Voter excitement is clearly with the Republican Party and President Donald Trump! There is a Red Wave Rising!
One pundit, Michael E. Newton, has been tracking the 2018 mid-term election data to date. He addresses peoples questions about mid-term voting to date:
Newton explains that because Democrat and Republican voting may have gotten closer each day, doesnt mean that the Democrats are really catching up in early voting. It just means the Republican percent of gains over 2016 are not as great as they were yesterday:
What we have seen to date in the mid-term is that Republicans won early voting by huge margins but in recent days they have been about even per day.
Newton summarizes, would you rather be the party that has improved their #earlyvoting share since 2016 [Republicans]? Or the party that is doing worse [Democrat Socialists]?

The Fake Stream News always changes their FAKE POLLS at the last minute and pretend all of a sudden out of no where people changed their votes over to the Republicans. This is how they cover their fake polls.
The funny thing is I do not know a single person on either side that change their vote.
And we ain’t done yet.
I am active UAW worker, many folks i work with have said they switched from democrat to republican. No one has told me they switched from republican to democrat.
Exactly! I am waiting until Tuesday in case the Rat party would try to throw out my early vote.
Thats not his 747 whats he flying?
Yeah I know a few Democrats that have switched over the Republican party in the last 2 years.
I give all the credit to President Trump. Amamzing what he has been able to accomplish in less than 2 years and being under attack from the D.C. Establishment.
I think it’s his own plane, and they are making a new Air Force One right now. President Trump is not going to fly on the same plane as Obama. Word is that it was bugged.
“I am active UAW worker, many folks i work with have said they switched from democrat to republican. No one has told me they switched from republican to democrat.”
Because that would pi$$ off your union leaders, right?
Thats a 757. The 747 is still in use as well. They just dont take it everywhere. It depends on the runway and the distance. When he was in Houston a few weeks ago they brought the 747. When he goes to smaller airports with shorter runways they take that one. When he came to the NSJ last year at Beckley WV, he flew in on that aircraft (the 757). Of course, A Cessna is AF1 when he steps on board. He will never fly on his own personal plane again until he leaves office. Its a security issue.
Not so fast. Comparing this midterm to a presidential election year may not be appropriate. Although turnout is high in most states, exceeding the prior midterms, we will not surpass the 2016 turnout numbers. So we may lean more towards the presidential numbers in 2016, it isnt analogous. Here is an example. Looking at the Florida governors race In 2014, Scott beat Crist by approximately 64,000 votes (2865342 vs 2801898). However, going in to that election, republicans had a 90670 early vote/vote by mail net lead. We are now only up by 28000 today in Florida and are expected to be down by about 30,000 tomorrow (mostly dem counties vote today). Yes this is better than 2016, where we were down by 90+ thousand before Election Day, but we had so much more turnout to overcome that hole. Do you see the problem with only comparing the 2018 early vote to 2016? Looking at this years data and comparing it to the most recent midterm in 2014 does not look great for us. In the 2014 governors race, we did worse on Election Day, not better. If that happens in 2018, we are sitting with Gillum and Nelson. Prove me wrong
Some of the leadership are exclusive right wingers.
The awakening of the american people.
Ahh okay and thank you.
I must have heard wrong and do trust what you are saying.
I think there are a lot of people who are secretly voting Republican this time. My 19 year old daughter, for instance, voted for Ted Cruz but she wouldn’t dare tell any of her friends or acquaintances at school. Most of them hate Ted Cruz so passionately that they could even become violent.
