The last year has been disastrous for Democrats.
Their blue wave is looking less likely by the day.
And they just got news that is sure to ruin their year.
Democrats Clamoring For Control
Currently, Republicans control everything.
Trump is in the White House.
And Republicans have a majority in the House and Senate.
That means Democrats can’t do anything.
All they are able to do is try to obstruct Trump’s agenda.
And even that isn’t working for them.
So they need to take back the House and Senate.
If they do they are sure to take out revenge on Republicans.
At the beginning of the year, they were confident they would do that.
But with time, that confidence has faded away.
As it stands they have virtually no chance at taking back the Senate.
And hopes to take back the House are dwindling away with every passing day.
But they are still pushing forward, spending tens of millions of dollars to get turn things around.
A Democrat Seat Will Be Lost
Those attempts aren’t going to be fruitful in the Senate with the latest news.
Democrat Sen. Heidi Heitkamp is losing steam like never before.
As a Democrat in North Dakota, she has been able to keep support by making her seem more moderate.
She never went too far to the left and avoids the more radical parts of her party.
But in the end, she’s still far from conservative.
And with President Trump in office voters are realizing that.
The latest poll shows her opponent, Rep. Kevin Cramer leading her by 12 points.
That means that unless a miracle happens, he will take her seat.
And when that happens, Republicans will grow their lead in the Senate.
With a larger lead, they will be able to more easily support the president’s agenda.
Currently, they only have 51 seats, giving them the advantage, but giving Democrats leeway to get what they want done.
All they need to do is convince two Republicans to side with them to block anything.
That will not be the case anymore.
Democrat Treatment Of Kavanaugh To Blame
While Heitkamp has been struggling for a while, it was the Kavanaugh confirmation that set voters over the edge.
Conservative voters saw a highly qualified man being slandered by the left.
He was facing attack after attack.
And eventually, it got so bad that sexual assault allegations were dropping.
None of those claims had any substance backing them, but Democrats were pushing them.
In the end, Heitkamp voted against his confirmation.
That one vote will guarantee her loss.
It proves to voters that she isn’t a moderate.
She is just as left as other Democrats in the Senate.
And they are fed up with left-wing Democrats opposing the president.
The Kavanaugh confirmation process was just a tipping point.
Do you think Republicans will keep control of the Senate?
