With less than five days left until election, Democrat Joe Manchin is slipping in the West Virginia Senate race, according to multiple polls released 5 days before the midterm election. Metro News West Virginia released a poll that showed that Senator Manchin now only leads by a mere 5 points, (45 to 40 percent) against West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, within the margin of error. Also, 11% of West Virginians support Libertarian Rusty Hollen, and five% of voters remain undecided. In fact, if the Libertarian candidate was not in the race, Morrisey would certainly be leading in the polls already, but none-the-less, the gap is closing on Manchin, especially in the most recent days leading up to the midterm election.
Also, in West Virginia House races, the 3rd district Republican Carol Miller is leading her Democrat opponent by 7%, with 3% of the voters remaining undecided.
In addition, on October 24th, NBC noted how the turnout for Republican early voters has swelled, compared to the 2016 numbers, which is unprecedented. To make matters worse for the Democrats, their own Party’s base has failed to get out and vote by a margin of 5%, from their party’s 2016 numbers…
This is a trend that is cropping up all over the nation, with Senator Heidi Heitkamp from North Dakota down by double digits to her Republican challenger, Missouri Senator Claire Mccaskill is down in the polls by 2% with her margin to lose rising. Arizona Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema is down in the polls by 7% to Republican Martha McSally. In Montana, Democrat Senator Jon Tester is leading by 4.2%, but that number is also falling, and within the margin of error. In Nevada, Republican Senator Dean Heller is holding a 2% lead in the polls, and most experts believe that margin is increasing. In Florida, Incumbent Senator Bill Nelson has dropped in the polls to a mere 1.9% lead over his challenger Rick Scott. However, polling in the most conservative part of Florida, the panhandle, has been sparse and underrepresented due to the hurricane damage. Many experts believe that Scott will prevail, as well as Rick Sick Santorum in the gubernatorial race. In Indiana, Democrat Joe Donnelly only has a 0.8% lead over Mike Braun, and in a number of polls, it shows Braun in the lead and gaining. Even in deep blue New Jersey, Robert Manendez has been losing ground, and some believe that it will be a potential pick-up for the Republicans by Bob Hugin. On top of that, Michigan has become competitive in the recent days, leading up to the Midterms, as well as several other blue states. Democrats are losing ground in a number of gubernatorial polls, and although House races are tight, Republicans seem to be gaining an advantage due to early voting numbers, shifting polling, and the silent vote.
For example, just as in 2016, experts are finding that Democrats are more outspoken about how they’re going to vote in the upcoming elections than Republicans and unaffiliated voters. This has caused a Democrat leaning bias in the pre-election polling, nearly across the board. Now, the latest Rasmussen Reports survey has found that
“60% of Likely Democratic Voters say they are more likely to let others know how they intend to vote this year compared to previous congressional elections, while only 49% of Republicans and 40% of voters not affiliated with either major political party. (To see survey question wording, click here.) In August 2016, 52% of Democrats were more likely to let others know how they intended to vote in the upcoming presidential election, compared to 46% of Republicans and 34% of unaffiliated voters.”
In 2016, analysts tried to explain why Donald Trump’s upset occurred, regardless of polling predicting a Democrat win for Hillary Clinton. They admitted there was “missed hidden support” among Trump voters, who were fearful of criticism from their democrat friends and family.
Also, Rasmussen said that…
“similarly when asked now about family, friends and co-workers, 60% of Democrats say they are also more likely to tell others how they intend to vote, but only 46% of Republicans and 45% of unaffiliated voters agree.”
The President has also proven to be one of the most efficient and productive leaders in history, as he has improved women reproductive rights, energy independence, trade and manufacturing gains, record high consumer optimism, record high markets and economy, small businesses thriving, infrastructure projects completed, new trade deals that promote American jobs, businesses, and manufacturing, governmental reform that helps businesses grow and jobs flourish, increased transparency and accountability in government, a rising middle class with a smaller poor class, securing our borders, TRYING to work with democrats on fixing the immigration system, support of law enforcement, eradication of the violent MS-13 gangs, supported military and veterans, improved VA accessibility to veterans, turned the tide in the ‘War on Terror’ by putting the terrorists on the run, stood up to the tyrannical Syrian regime, Russia, Iran, and North Korea, which has led to not only American security, but globally as well. The Administration countered Russian propaganda by launching two government-run media outlets in February broadcasting in Russian. In April, the Trump administration refused to issue waivers to any companies that wanted to do business with Russia, which was under economic sanctions, including Exxon Mobil, which had applied for a waiver. The administration in June implemented the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act, which blacklisted certain Russian citizens for human rights violations. In June, on the same day President Trump met with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, the U.S. Treasury Department imposed sanctions on 38 Russian individuals and entities involved in the conflict with Ukraine. President Trump also has put Cuba and Venezuela in check, as he has blocked American companies from doing businesses with socialist nations who have major human rights violations against their people. President Trump has also fought for American’s Constitutional rights and freedoms like the freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and freedom of the press, as some throughout our nation have sought to silence opposing political voices. He has also fought for states rights, against opioid addiction, ending government controlled healthcare, while returning it to the free market with increased competition, and lower costs. He has fought for education, and restored respect for America by putting ‘America First’, and encouraging other nations to do the same for their own country. President Trump won the release of Americans held abroad, often using his personal relationships with world leaders to free Otto Warmbier, Caitlan Coleman, Joshua Boyle, Sabrina De Sousa, Aya Hijazi, UCLA Basketball players, and others. President Trump has restored our bond with Israel, moved the Israeli embassy to Jerusalem, and returned our judicial system to one that is based on the constitution of the United States, and the rule of law. President Trump has also returned America to prestige in the area of science and space exploration, as to compete with other nations like Russia and China, which puts American National Security and advancement at the forefront of the world.
Meanwhile, while the President has upset the Democrat’s and their Progressive-Socialists base, the remarkable truth is that President Trump has accrued an incredible and remarkable list of accomplishments that astound not only the average American’s but even those who strongly support the President and keep themselves politically well-informed.
And, while he has befuddled and disappointed some – with major promises such as Obamacare repeal and a border wall only partially fulfilled or put on the back-burner due to lack of congressional cooperation – the stunning reality is this: Donald Trump has amassed a long and remarkable list of actions and accomplishments that will surprise average Americans, even those who support the president and consider themselves well-informed politically.
Accomplishments that are even more astounding, considering the fact that they have been implemented amidst unrelenting negativity not only by the Democrats, Mainstream Media, Establishment Elitists in the Republican and Democrat Party, the “Deep State,” Fabian-Socialist RINO (Republican In Name Only) Republicans, but he has been attacked by George Soros, Globalists, Pro-One-World Government Countries, Communists, and the Radical Muslim world as well.
The ‘Resistance’ has tried to hide his achievements for women, national security, tax cuts, increased energy production, pro-military accomplishments, Judicial appointments, pro-life and Christian accomplishments, restoring respect to the United States, and much more. They have become more outraged as he has successfully undone Obama’s legacy items by shutting down open borders, ending the Cuba policy, and effectively killing Obamacare by ending the health insurance mandate.
Therefore, whether you love him or hate him, embrace his agenda or resist it, Americans and the rest of the nations of the world know that he speaks his mind. President Trump won’t give you the cherry picked, politically correct version of what he means. Instead, he will shoot from the hip, and say exactly what he is thinking. Political enemies hate him for it, while his political allies anguish the unfiltered politically incorrect approach. However, it is precisely why ‘We the People’ love him! He says what he means, and does what he says. Therefore, as America and the rest of the world watch our political system’s biggest anomaly rises to become one of our country’s greatest President’s in history, the politically correct Elitists scratch their head in disbelief. But one thing is for sure. President Trump has certainly proven to be a man of his word, which is something that our political system has been missing for a very long time.
Combine that with the fact that the fact that the United States economy is soaring, and has created 250,000 Jobs in October alone, and wages rose by more than 3%, for the FIRST TIME SINCE THE RECESSION, it creates a huge incentive for Americans to vote for pro-America First candidates, NOT GLOBALIST AND SOCIALIST ONES!
Also, it explains why every rally the President holds, brings in tens of thousands of rally goers. For example, in Texas, he brought in more than 100,000 supporters. Now, with four days to go until the election, the President held a rally in Columbia, Missouri that brought in 27,000 people, and many were so adamant about supporting the President, they parked their cars on the side of the road, and walked 3 miles in 50 degree rainy weather to the rally, despite knowing that they likely would not even be able to get in. Rallies like…

The list could go on and on.
Add on the fact that the overall approval rating of the President hit 50% this week, and black voter approval has hit a record high of 40%, and you have a recipe for disaster, for the Democrat Party who has always depended on black support for their Party. In fact, to win national elections, Democrats really need 85% support of black Americans.
Therefore, when you look at the massive ‘America First’ accomplishments of this Administration, Americans are growing increasingly happy with the President’s job performance. Also, Americans have been informed that Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Maxine Waters, and other leaders will increase taxes, re-institute socialized medicine, stymie the economy with massive regulations and taxes, ‘RESIST’ the President’s agenda by blackmailing him and his Administration with subpoena’s, re-opening countless Russia investigations into the 2016 election, and doing everything in their power to destroy his Presidency, impeach him, and remove him from office. In fact, Maxine Waters has even vowed to destroy American businesses and jobs, when she said this past week…
“I will be the first African-American, the first woman to chair the powerful Financial Services Committee. That’s all of Wall Street. That’s all the insurance companies, that’s all the banks. And so, of course, the CEOs of the banks now are saying, ‘What can we do to stop Maxine Waters because if she gets in she’s going to give us a bad time? I have not forgotten you foreclosed on our houses. I have not forgotten that you undermined our communities. I have not forgotten that you sold us those exotic products, had us sign on the dotted line for junk,” she yelled, “and for mess that we could not afford. I have people who are homeless who have never gotten back into a home. What am I going to do to you?
What I am going to do to you is fair. I’m going to do to you what you did to us!
In the end, the 2018 midterm elections are proving to be not only the most important midterm election in history, but likely the MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION in United States history…PERIOD!
