Poll Shows Positive Numbers for Trump and Republicans Going Into Midterms
You've probably heard smug lefties in the Twittersphere claiming a Democratic "blue wave" in the midterms is inevitable. "That Donald Drumpf and his ilk will fall to our blue power. After all, it's our time." Just one problem with that.
The latest polls are showing the midterms race is much closer than the left would like you to believe.
Fueled by increased enthusiasm from women, Latinos and young voters for the upcoming midterm election, Democrats hold a 9-point lead among likely voters over Republicans in congressional preference, according to the latest national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
But nearly two weeks before Election Day, the same poll also shows President Donald Trump at his highest job rating yet as president, as well as Republicans with their largest lead on the economy in the poll’s history.
And in the most competitive House battlegrounds — many of which take place on traditionally Republican turf — congressional preference is tied.
In other words, don't count the Republicans out just yet.
Sure, the poll shows the Democrats have an advantage over the GOPers. Still, a lot can change from now until Election Day. There's still plenty of time for the left to top their recent dumbassery surrounding Party Time Brett and the last of the Fauxhicans.
Judging from these new numbers, it's probably wise for lefties to reserve their gloating until after they're done counting the ballots. You know, brag about the "blue wave" after the midterms are over. After all, let's not forget the last time the left claimed victory prematurely.
It's always important to remember the polls are never infallible. These numbers could very well be true. On the other hand, they might be about as accurate as a squad of feminists with robot arms storming Normandy. The point is nobody truly knows until this thing is over.
Until then, our fingers are crossed, hoping the "blue wave" turns out to be a puddle.
