    I saw a mass of dark blue water swirling round & round in circles with much noise & fury, inside a white porcelain bowl with a hole at the bottom. Unfortunately, after it disappeared down the hole, it left behind some .... errrr .... "things" clinging to the bowl that had to be scraped off.

    In an effort to push back on the Democrats’ blue wave plans next month, we’re seeing plenty of Republicans running against the increasingly divisive and destructive trend of political correctness and thought police tactics of liberals. It’s a message that seems to be getting some traction in swing districts, particularly in California and Oregon where voters of all stripes are feeling the impact of feel-good, socialist theories being enshrined in their state’s laws. But one person I didn’t expect to be jumping on the bandwagon was New York Democratic Senator (and Senate Minority Leader) Chuck Schumer. Yet during a panel...

    For most of the year, the media and punditry has been talking about the Blue Wave in the midterm elections, meaning for those less politically attuned, that the Democrats were going to gain big this fall…. There was, for the most part of the year, a very solid argument to be made to expect that the Democrats would gain significantly this fall, and at the very least, take over the house....
  • THREE WEEKS OUT: No Blue Wave, Not Even in the Pacific!

    10/15/2018 5:18:55 PM PDT · by dontreadthis · 41 replies ^ | Oct 15, 2018 | Larry Schweikar
    With two weeks to go until the midterms, Republicans are virtually guaranteed to win the Senate. As of today, North Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Arizona, and Missouri appear safe. Just today, the third consecutive poll showing Dean Heller up in Nevada came out (Emerson) and he has expanded his lead now to seven. This would mean that as of today, the GOP would gain a net of two seats in the Senate. Races still supposedly up in the air are Montana, Indiana, West Virginia, Florida, Minnesota, New Jersey, and Ohio. Races where the Democrat has a lead outside the margin of...
  • A Republican Red Tide Is Pushing Back Against the Dems' Blue Wave

    ERIE, Pa. -- Jason Vogel is fired up to vote. He says his passion crystallized two weeks ago when he saw just how chaotic Washington, D.C., would be if the Democrats were to seize power in Congress. When Democratic senators smeared Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as an attempted rapist without proof and angry protestors stormed the Capitol, he said, he grew increasingly concerned. "Hard to imagine that occurring every day, but you begin to realize that is exactly what would happen if I didn't turn out to vote," he said. Vogel is with his family at the Erie Insurance...

    It was this week two years ago that Hillary Clinton’s victory looked assured, when the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape of Donald Trump bragging about sexual assault appeared all but certain to end his campaign. Jesse Ferguson remembers it well. The deputy press secretary for Clinton’s campaign also remembers what happened a month later. It’s why this veteran Democratic operative can’t shake the feeling that, as promising as the next election looks for his party, it might still all turn out wrong. “Election Day will either prove to me I have PTSD or show I’ve been living déjŕ vu,” Ferguson said....

When Democratic senators smeared Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as an attempted rapist without proof, and angry protestors stormed the Capitol, he says he grew increasingly concerned. “A lot of my friends feel the same way.

    Georgia’s Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said Tuesday the Democrats’ "blue wave" in November would be comprised of those who are "documented and undocumented." Abrams was speaking with supporters at the Clayton County campaign office during an event with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.). She touted the diversity of the coming "blue wave" that she thinks will sweep Democrats into office nationwide. "The thing of it is, the blue wave is African American. It is white. It is Latino. It is Asian-Pacific Islander," she said, going through a diverse list of groups. "It is made up of those who've been...

    The Cook Political Report ^ | October 9, 2018 | Charles E. Cook
    There are a lot of great political stories out there right now, so it’s easy to miss that the biggest one might be happening below the federal level. Nationally, what appears to be the blue Democratic tidal wave is arguably really a pink wave, with women voters, donors, and candidates driving much of the movement in favor of Democrats. We are seeing eye-popping gender gaps, with the Republican edge among men dwarfed by the Democratic advantage among women. In the mid-September NBC News/Wall Street Journal national poll, men narrowly favored Republicans in preference for control of the House, 47 to...

    LONDON - Former Vice President Joe Biden predicted on Wednesday that the Democrats would win 40 seats in the House and would also take back the Senate in the November midterm elections. "I predict to you the Democrats will win 40 seats in the House. And I predict to you there's a slightly better than even chance we win the Senate," Biden said in a speech during a visit to London. He said a deep dissatisfaction with President Donald Trump and his administration would result in the Democratic wave. "President Trump is the only president - and I've been there...
  • Wave watch: Inside the Democratic primary turnout surge(Uh OK!)

    10/10/2018 12:15:41 PM PDT · by rktman · 17 replies ^ | 10/10/2018 | unknown
    Democratic voter turnout in this year’s House primaries increased in each of the 19 competitive, comparable House districts compared to 2014, and doubled in more than two thirds of them. That’s far better than Republican voter turnout, which increased in 14 of those districts but didn’t double in any of them. Why it matters: Poor turnout has been the scourge of Democrats’ efforts to win congressional elections in the last decade. But this data suggests that a surge of anti-Trump enthusiasm could boost their turnout in November — and not just in already-blue areas, but in parts of the country...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | October 10, 2018 | Rasmussen
    Wednesday, October 10, 2018 With less than a month to Election Day, the Generic Congressional Ballot is now dead even. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone and online survey finds that 45% of Likely U.S. Voters would choose the Democratic candidate if the elections for Congress were held today. Another 45% would opt for the Republican. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and eight percent (8%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) Last week, 47% of voters said they would choose the Democratic candidate while 42% said they would choose the Republican. It is unclear whether the...

    University of Virginia Center for Politics Director Larry Sabato joins MSNBC's 'MTP Daily' with host Chuck Todd to discuss the Republicans struggling in states Trump won in 2016. Sabato said Trump is in trouble in the Midwest, a part of the country where he did well in 2016, and it "seems to be flipping" in the midterm year. He said the states he carried, it appears, to elect Democratic Senators. "Even if the Republicans hold the Senate given the very pro-Republican math that exists, President Trump is in trouble in some of these states," Sabato said. "He's fallen considerably as...
  • A Crush Of New Polls Show Democrats In A Free Fall

    10/08/2018 11:18:05 AM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 105 replies
    If there is a silver lining in the tragic farce wrought on the nation by the Democratic Party in the Judge Brett Kavanaugh nomination hearings it is this: Regular Americans are recoiling at the shocking spectacle and Democrat support is plummeting. Every new poll coming out is uniformly showing middle Americans fleeing from the Democrats while a once-mildly apathetic Republican Party has been ginned up to energetic levels equal to the Democratic base. Further trouble for the much-hyped blue wave is that black voters are trending against Democrats, participating in the #walkaway movement and viewing the Kavanaugh moment very differently...

    Gov. John Kasich (R-Ohio) said Sunday that he thinks Democrats will have a "good year" in the November midterms. "How good? I'm not so sure, because if their message is abolish ICE and things like that, if -- they're not going to have a big wave," Kasich said on CNN's "State of the Union." "The natural progression of things is, when the president's in two years out, the other party does well," he said. "I don't know how big the wave is going to be," the governor said. "So we got to see what happens in November, but then we...

    Democrats have a better shot than ever at winning back the House majority with 30 days to go before the midterm elections, but have seen their narrow shot of taking back the Senate erode amid the controversy surrounding Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court. The Kavanaugh saga has dominated politics for a fortnight, energizing partisans in both parties. While no one can be certain how the next four weeks will play out, the fight seems likely to hurt Republicans further with the suburban female voters seen as pivotal in many toss-up House districts. But there are signs that the...

    The Hill ^ | 10/06/18 09:30 AM EDT | HEATHER R. HIGGINS, OPINION CONTRIBUTOR
    Democrats were cheered by the renewed FBI investigation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh and counted it as a win. Most Republicans were dismayed that the full Senate's vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh's appointment to the Supreme Court was delayed and saw this as a political misstep. They should change places. First, while the politically attuned understand this is just a delay game by the left, who are on record as willing to do anything to derail this nominee and force the appointment to be made after the November election, swing voters and many women do not. For them, there is no...
