Will the Red Vote Vaporize the Blue Wave on Election Day?

Written by Kevin Fobbs on October 23, 2018

On November 6, mid-term election day, you can be reassured that based upon new polls, the Democrats will be eating political crow. According to a series of recent polls, Fox News reports that the Red Vote may just vaporize the so-called Blue Wave. To be honest, are you really surprised after the 2016 Election Day shocker?

For nearly the better part of the year, the Democrats have been pummeling President Trump with Fake News and even more fake scandals. When the Russian scandals gave way to collusion scandals, which gave way to Stormy “over-the-hill” Daniels which led the way to Kavanaugh lies, nothing would stick. Resist, resist, resist is not a political platform or a policy which Americans saw a benefit in their home or in their paycheck.

But the mainstream media still kept attacking the president as if their very livelihoods as well as the over-paid salaries, expensive homes and luxury suite accommodations depended on it. Well, it kinda did. After all how could they go to their media advertisers and liberal billionaire George Soros money machine with empty hands and even emptier election results?

Well, it looks like President Trump has done it again. Because when the Democrats and their rabid, unhinged followers went low and lower, the president’s poll numbers are going high and higher.

Based upon a NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll released on Sunday, President Trump’s approval ratings are at their highest yet: 47 percent. In addition, the 12-point gap the Democrats had in September regarding taking control of congress has narrowed to a 7-point gap.

Can anyone say, the Kavanaugh effect?

Even better, While Nancy Pelosi, the House Minority Leader, is preparing her moving van to re-occupy her former House Speaker’s office, she may want to put a pin in that thought.

While the Democrats need 23 house seats to switch from the GOP to the Democrat side, a number of key House races which appeared to be a slam-dunk advantage for the donkey party have vaporized. Instead, as the midterm battle is heading to the conclusion, the recent NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll found that Democrats still hold a large advantage overall, in districts rated as very competitive by the nonpartisan Cook Political Report. Yet the silver lining indicates that the parties are now in a dead heat on the question of which one should control Congress.

That is of crucial importance because a good number of voters do not make up their minds until ten days out. In addition, with the GOP feeling the momentum changing for them in house and senate races, the liberals much celebrated blue wave may simply end up being a very insignificant minor water trickle at the voting booth on election day.
