Many throughout the Democrat Party had hoped that their constant and blatant attacks on the President, with 92% negative media coverage would slow the support and popularity of President Trump. However their calculations have proven to be seriously short-sighted. In fact, while some of the worst attacks and insults have been leveled against him and his Administration, President Trump’s approval rating hit 50%, which is six points higher than former President Obama had during his Administration.
As a result, Democrats are now panicked that not only will there be NO BLUE WAVE, but they are now concerned that there could be a RED WAVE on the horizon instead. The latest Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 50% of likely U.S. voters approve of President Trump’s job performance, while 48% disapprove. In comparison, on the same date in President Barack Obama’s Presidency, he had a 44% approval rating on October 29, 2010. Consequently, Obama and the DNC suffered massive losses in the 2010 midterm elections.
What does this mean for President Trump, and the GOP come November 6th?
Ultimately, it is very welcomed news, as the President and Congressional Republicans fight to defy the odds that typically work against them in a midterm election.
Even more promising is the fact that in 2016, Democrats believed that President Trump’s ‘America First’ policy was one that would result in a Latino wave of support for the Democrat Party and their candidates. They believed that his ‘build the wall’ concept along the United States/Mexico border would push Latinos blue in large numbers. However, according to Real Clear Politics, not only has it failed to result in greater support for the Democrat platform, but it has actually driven them towards President Trump and the Republican party, according to polling.
Interestingly, many of the Senate seats that are up for grabs happen to be Republican seats, and if the election were held today, polling shows that the Republicans would gain three seats, leaving the Republicans in control at 54 to 46. However, a number of seats look as though they could still flip red, as Michigan, Florida, West Virginia, New Jersey, and Montana are all shifting in favor of the Republicans. In fact, all indications leaves us with the belief that Republicans will likely pick up 6-7 seats, leaving the official number 57 to 44, or 58 to 43, all in Republican favor.
Then, the House of Representatives race shows that the Republicans have made incredible gains, and are closing the gap between themselves and the Democrats. Just a few short weeks ago, Democrats had 205 seats leaning their way, compared to the Republicans 191. To maintain control of the House, Republicans need 218. Now, as of October 29th, Republicans have closed the 14 seat gap to a mere 5 seats, with 30 toss ups available. Furthermore, many of the toss-up seats are beginning to shift towards the Republicans, giving a great deal of hope to President Trump, and the GOP.
According to history, this midterm election should be trying for the Republican Party, because only three times in history has a President’s Party been able to avoid losing seats in the House or Senate. Regardless, it appears that President Trump, could prove to be yet another exception to the rule, and for good reason. After all, if you look at the Presidents record, he has lowered unemployment to the lowest levels in over 50 years. Unemployment for blacks, hispanics, women and men, is at record shattering lows. The economy has hit record after record, as Americans have had on average, more than $2,500 per family in additional disposable income on hand. Consequently, Americans savings is going up, debt is going down, and all while American GDP to debt ration is falling. Now, the President is even proposing another massive tax cut for Middle Class families. Top that with the fact that the President has been rebuilding the military, taking care of our nations veterans, expanding American energy production, replacing unfair trade deals, with fair trade deals, lowering prescription drug prices, ending gag clauses placed on pharmacies, combatting the opioid crisis, restoring security in the Korean Peninsula, stopping Chinese unfair trade and financial practices, combating globalism, and the list could go on, and on, and on, and on………. Regardless, the President is putting ‘America and Americans First’, and ‘We the People’ of these United States are taking notice.
Combine that with the fact that the President, in undoing the socialist policies of the Progressive-left Democrats, it has left them reeling and angry. As a result, they have become enraged, full of hate, vile, and encouraging their supporters to attack Republicans, make accusations that are untrue, and all while the Mainstream Media has pushed their narrative to dangerous levels. However, LET ME MAKE ONE THING CLEAR….THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE SMART, and now that the vail of Fake News has fallen, America has awoken from their news of distortion and propaganda. They can see the facts, and Americans DON’T LIKE WHAT THEY ARE WITNESSING!
Consequently, on November 6, the American voters will go to the polls to cast their votes and determine the fate of our nations future. Ultimately, it appears that most Americans don’t want to return to the leadership of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi or Senate Majority leader Chuck Schumer. Therefore it appears, at least currently, that the Republican Party will not only hold the House of Representatives, but will make major gains in the Senate.
Yet another record to go down in the history books for President Donald J. Trump
