Going into 2018, Democrats were optimistic for the future.
They felt that during the upcoming midterm elections they would take back the House and Senate in order to impeach President Trump.
But one thing that just happened caused them to lose all hope, and makes it clear that the Democrats are going down.
Going into 2018, all that Democrats could talk about was a “blue wave.” They felt that voters would be fed up with President Trump, and vote Democrat, causing Republicans to lose the House and Senate.
They felt this because they were living in a bubble where they ignored the half of the country that stands with President Trump just as they did before the 2016 election.
But as time has gone by, and more polls have been coming out, they can no longer ignore the Trump-supporting half of the country. In fact, the latest poll shows that not only will Democrats not take back the House and Senate; they will likely lose three seats in U.S. Senate.
In Florida, North Dakota, and Indiana, the Democrat incumbents are trailing behind their Republican challengers. These findings were found in a poll conducted by Axios/Survey Monkey.
In the three states, Democrats are behind by between two and five points. This is extremely troubling for Democrats. With the incumbents having the advantage of being well known, polls showing their challengers leading them prove that those who voted for them in the past are turning on them.
These three states specifically turning fully red should be very troubling for Democrats. One of the ways they have held majorities in the Senate is by pushing “moderate” candidates in more traditionally red states. Those candidates generally voted in line with Democrats, but talked more like republicans on the campaign trail.
With Democrats becoming more extreme, and exclusively the anti-Trump party, many of those voters are likely being turned off. President Donald Trump has proven to these people that Republicans are the party standing up for them, and polling is showing they have received the message.
And much of this is being realized in the Midwest, where Donald Trump had a near-sweeping victory on election night. In Missouri Democrats could also see a heavy defeat. Sen. Claire McCaskill is the incumbent, and has been consistently anti-Trump.
Despite McCaskill being anti-Trump, the voters in Missouri are extremely pro-Trump. Polling shows that she is beginning to slip in the polls, only leading by two points. With Republicans still battling it out in the primary election, it is likely that the Republican will gain the lead once facing McCaskill one on one.
This is proof that President Trump is being received extremely well in the states that elected him. Since taking office, the economy has boomed, with the lowest unemployment rate in many years.
Trump has been following through with his promises, and people are realizing that. If these polls are any indication as to how things will go in 2020, President Trump will be easily re-elected.
Are you going to vote to re-elect Trump in 2020?
