Go to the leftist parts of the Twittersphere and you’ll probably hear talk of a Democratic “blue wave” happening in the midterm elections. Lefties are convinced they’re poised for a giant victory in November.
Well, this CBS pollster is about to relieve his bladder in those lefties’ Corn Flakes. He says a blue wave isn’t likely:
For 2018, the CBS News Battleground Tracker has gathered a panel of nearly 5,700 registered voters. Almost all of them live in the 50 to 60 districts that might switch from Republican to Democrat, or vice versa, in November — the only races that matter, when it comes to control of Congress.
Salvanto’s polling currently indicates that few House seats will change hands in November — and that the GOP could very well hold its majority in the House. “In this era, a district’s voting patterns from the past tend to stay that way,” Salvanto said. “Not as many partisans today are willing to cross party lines.” Of the nation’s 435 House districts, fully 85 percent will almost certainly stick with its current party affiliation come November, Salvanto projects.
I’ve got a pretty good idea as to the left’s reaction after reading this:
I can’t say this revelation is all too surprising. The left’s sole strategy since the Donald took office has been “Trump is a giant meanypants who doesn’t like socialism. Vote for us.” Instead of putting forward better ideas than the Republicans, they just repeat “Trump sucks” and hope it sticks. It’s about as effective as hiring Michael Moore to guard the Famous Amos factory.
Obviously, this is just speculation. We won’t truly know how things will play out until the night of the election. Though, if this pollster is to be believed, the Democrats could be set for another disappointing evening. Be sure to have popcorn ready for the possible deluge of leftist butthurt.
