Simple question.

I'll expand with my response.

The question isn't whether or not we're descended from monkeys.  The question is, when are we going to stop descending?

I said "No, there will be blood in the streets."

There have been a lot of news reports about Russian interference in the 2018 elections.

There have been misleading news reports about Republicans refusing to vote for funds to protect elections.

There have misleading news reports about 7 year olds hacking into election systems.

When the campaign was going strong in 2016 I asked at one point why everyone was asking if Trump would accept the election results.  It was a question designed to fearmonger and try to get Trump to admit he was losing.  (Framing is everything with Trump and I think Hillary's team knew that and tried to use it against him.)

I suggested the real question was whether or not Democrats would accept the election results if Trump won.

I think we have our answer on that.

So what are your predictions about 2018?

The lead the Democrats have has vanished and disappeared multiple times in the past year.  Right now they're on the decline.  Don't get too hung up on the individual poll I'm using.  I'm comparing it to itself to show trends.  Reuters/Ipsos shows the same trend.  CNN shows the same trend.  Quinnipiac is the lone outlier showing them up since their last poll but that was last month.

For parameters, the Economist/Yougov poll had them at 6 points up a few weeks ago. 

Then 5 points up last week. 

Now Economist/Yougov has them at only 3 points up.

(For frame of reference, the pundits are all in agreement the Dems need a 6 point advantage to break even.)

The point is the polls are constantly in a state of flux. 

But what's not in flux is the nonstop mantra from our media that a blue wave is on the horizon.  This is going to lead to some Democrats so convinced they have it in the bag that the only way they could lose is if the Republicans collude with Russia again.

(The media is not your friend Democrats.  Remember that.  They are after your money.  Not after your peace of mind.  You in a peaceful state of mind does not serve them well.)

I think it is BETTER for the dems if Pubs hold the House. Pubs should have to deal with the Mueller report and associated fallout. As it stands they can just blame the Dems and sit back. Better if the Dems capture the Senate and Pubs hold the House. Won't happen that way though.

I will look at it at the time. I will keep you in suspense.

And that really should have been one of the poll options.

Still not too late to add it.

Winning!

Democrats don't accept Trump as the President now, no way they will just sit back and accept Republicans keeping control in BOTH houses.

Yes.

But the real outcome could be that the Republicans keep both houses ... and ... they finally start to get in lockstep like the dims.  A 'red wave' could be the kick in the pants some of those rino's need to figure out who's in charge.

Should that happen ... odumba care gone by 10 Nov.
