    Trump and the RNC are hinting that the Democrat Blue Wave will transform into a red Trumpian tsunami.  With Rasmussen showing 36% approval in the Black community, I think a red tsunami is quite possible. But what does a red tsunami look like? Here's an imaginery meme of one coming ashore as Dems and GOPe are partying and plotting impeachment. Click the image to see it in full size.  If you like this pic, feel free to widely distribute it.  And let's make the Red Tsunami a reality.  MAGA!  Go Trump! While researching this pic, I ran across a very...

    Warning! “Conservatives” who constantly search for things to be afraid of will not be able to read this all the way through. A report CBS probably wishes it never let see the light of day, says its polling “expert” doesn’t see a blue wave; in fact, a careful reading of the CBS report says a red wave may very well be on its way. CBS has adopted the LA Times/USC Dornsife method of polling by compiling a large sample of respondents who are willing to be polled periodically on a continuous basis. What CBS found is that there is no...

    ... “In 2016, a lot of us assumed we knew what would happen in Michigan and Wisconsin,” Salvanto told The Post. “It was a great lesson for us pollsters: Even if you think you know what will happen, poll it if you can.” Blame it on the Blue Wall. Since 1992, in six consecutive presidential elections, a solid block of 18 states had voted for the Democrat every single time. They would have given Clinton 239 electoral votes — 89 percent of the way to victory — if she had held on to them all.Few bothered to ask those states’...

    Before Election Day 2016 the "intelligentsia" – that self-appointed and self-important class of faux intellectuals, which believes itself superior to the average American and thereby entitled to tell the rest of us what to do, what to think and how to live – considered Donald Trump a joke. Hillary Clinton was, in all but name only, the next President of the United States. The election was a tedious formality. "The Donald" would soon be back hosting a reality TV show, and the status quo would remain intact. The members of the "intelligentsia" awoke the next day to disbelief. The unthinkable...
  • Worst-case scenario for House GOP is 70-seat wipeout

    The Hill ^ | August 17, 2018 | Reid Wilson
    Democratic enthusiasm and a GOP malaise surrounding President Trump have set the stage for a potentially devastating midterm election for the House Republican majority. In a series of special elections mostly in reliably GOP districts, Democratic candidates have routinely outperformed Hillary Clinton’s share of the vote from 2016. At the same time, Republican candidates have underperformed President Trump's vote share in all but two special elections. If that pattern holds in November, the worst-case scenario for the GOP is a truly historic wipeout of as many as 72 House seats, according to The Hill’s analysis of special election results and...

    The deracinated Democrats, still unable to accept their loss in the 2016 presidential election, have pinned their hopes on the iron laws of "history" and its noble arc to tell themselves that, since the party in power usually (but not always!) loses congressional seats in an off-year national election, there's a mighty "Blue Wave" coming this fall that will sweep the GOP from power in the House and tee up articles of impeachment against president Trump, because waaaahhhhhh.Then again, maybe not: For all the talk of a blue wave sweeping Democrats back into the House majority this fall, their...

    The Real Reasons for Chicago's Deadly Crime Wave Jack Dunphy It is an accepted but lamented fact of life among police officers that in order to rise on the promotional ladder, one must endorse the political fashions currently in favor among the city’s politicians. And the higher one ascends on that ladder, the more convincingly one must do so. As a consequence, reflecting the governing principles of almost any city you can name, most police chiefs are liberals, or at least pretend to be with a passing level of feigned sincerity. As a result of this, the upper levels of...

    An Ohio reminder: The worst Republican is better than the best Democrat. At this moment, Ohio Democrats and their Beltway masters are diligently working to steal the state’s 12th Congressional District from Republican Troy Balderson. Balderson’s Democratic opponent, Danny O’Connor, refused to concede after narrowly losing the special election and a few hours later — the county where he works — miraculously “discovered” 588 uncounted votes in a “routine audit.” When they were counted, Balderson’s lead shrank by 190. Similar skullduggery will accompany the count of provisional and absentee ballots, which will inevitably lead to an automatic recount, which will...

    WATERVILLE, Minn. (AP) — For all the talk of a blue wave sweeping Democrats back into the House majority this fall, their efforts could be thwarted in one of the nation’s bluest states. Voters in the sprawling farm country south of Minneapolis and in the economically struggling Iron Range along the Canadian border give Republicans in those two congressional districts perhaps their best chance anywhere for flipping Democratic seats. Democrats need to pick up 23 seats in November to retake the House, but the odds grow long if they lose districts they currently hold. Democratic incumbents in both Minnesota districts...

    MADISON – A newly released poll provides a compelling counterpoint to the Democratic Party “Blue Wave” narrative – at least in the Wisconsin Legislature. “They haven’t changed their minds how they voted in the last two election cycles for Walker and Trump,” Jensen said of voters in the swing legislative districts. The poll, commissioned by the Brookfield-based Jobs First Coalition, surveyed 600 likely voters in “Wisconsin Target Districts,” eight legislative districts that could very well determine control of the Legislature in 2019. “I don’t think you will see a blue wave hitting the Wisconsin Legislature,” said former GOP Assembly Speaker...

    The Hill ^ | August 9, 2018
    The magic number of seats Democrats need to hit to win back the House majority is 23. But in reality, it’s almost certainly a much smaller number. Several GOP-held seats are almost certainly already in the bag, meaning Democrats likely need to take a smaller number of competitive seats — perhaps as few as 15 — to return to the majority for the first time since 2010. It’s all making Republicans nervous — even before Tuesday’s special election in Ohio, where a Republican candidate appears to have just scraped by in a district that has been in GOP hands since...

    WASHINGTON — There are zero second-place finishers serving in Congress and Danny O’Connor, the Democrat in Ohio's high-profile special election Tuesday, finished second. But Democrats say the result is making them feel more bullish than ever about their prospects to flip the House in November. "I have never been more confident that we will take back the House," said Rep. Ben Ray Lujan of New Mexico, the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. And O'Connor could still make it Washington, even if he can't close the 1,754 vote deficit against Republican Troy Balderson (thousands of provisional and absentee ballots...

    The Democratic party’s projected “blue wave” in the November midterm elections seems like a pipe dream now, after last night’s special election in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District. Sorry, but Ohio stays red: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1025920073159110657 It’s worth mentioning that it was a very, but very close race in Ohio, yet Trump-backed Troy Balderson managed to emerge victorious in a dramatic fight over a vacant House seat during yesterday’s special election. Republican State Senator Troy Balderson will now take over a House seat previously held by Republican Pat Tiberi, who resigned back in January, and took another job in the private sector.

    We now have less than 100 days left until the November 2018 midterm elections. While the economy hums along at its highest growth rate since 2014 and taxpayers have more money in their pockets, the liberal mainstream media is clinging to the notion that a blue wave is coming this fall. While recent historical trends would hint that Democrats will gain a number of seats in November as Clinton lost seats, Bush lost his conservative friends, and Obama lost his majority, it is worth mentioning that we are living in unprecedented times. The political pundits could not foresee the Trump...

    "We want the report to be a reality check." It certainly is. In March The Brennan Center for Justice (BCJ) delivered some bad news to Democrats hoping to retake the House and reinstalling Babbling Nancy Pelosi as the next Speaker. Aside from the scary news itself, the reason for the scary news should put a smile on the face of Americans concerned about the life of our nation. Without even knowing how insanely far to the left the Democrats would have moved five months later, the BCJ report titled "Extreme Gerrymandering & the 2018 Midterm," makes it clear that the...

    By most accounts, there is an electoral wave building in favor of the Democratic party. Democrats are in good shape to win the necessary 23 seats to take control of the House of Representatives, nab several governorships, and collect a multitude of state legislative seats. The Senate, by virtue of this year’s map that favors Republicans, should remain in GOP hands. But all in all, a wave seems to be looming. Granted, the out party usually does well in midterm elections such as the one scheduled for November. But this is not always a guarantee. Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, and...
