Nancy Pelosi thinks the Democrats are a shoe-in to win control of Congress.
All the polls say they are the favorites to take back the House of Representatives.
However that all changed when Pelosi’s jaw-dropping confession sent the Democrats running for their lives.
Nancy Pelosi’s Confessions Throws the 2018 Election in Chaos
Nancy Pelosi appeared at the Harvard Kennedy School Institute for Politics.
She took questions about the 2018 elections and how the Democrats would govern if they won.
Pelosi was basking in the glow of polls that showed the Democrats are the favorites to win the House of Representatives.
That lulled her into a false sense of confidence.
And she confessed to the Democrats true plans for their majority.
But she made a mistake that could cost the Democrats the election.
One attendee asked her what the Democrats would be willing to trade for funding Donald Trump’s border wall.
Pelosi responded “nothing.”
She also mocked the idea of a border wall as a “manhood issue.”
“It happens to be like a manhood issue for the president, building a wall, and I’m not interested in that,” Pelosi said.
Pelosi then lied and claimed Democrats supported securing the border even though they oppose the wall.
“We can’t allow him to say we’re not interested in protecting the border,” Pelosi stated. “That isn’t the only way to protect the border. In fact, it’s probably the worst way to protect the border.”
Nancy Pelosi’s Lies Catch up with the Democrats
But try as Pelosi might, she cannot spin the Democrats opposition to border security.
A growing number of Democrats – including many top 2020 contenders – support abolishing ICE.
And every Democrat opposes building the wall.
That means they support open borders.
And their promises to throw the borders open if they win back power is sending a signal across Central America.
A caravan of over 4,000 migrants is marching toward the Southern Border.
They are hoping to take advantage of the Democrats winning power and pressuring Trump to drop all border enforcement measures.
Donald Trump knows this.
And he knows immigration is the top issue for Republican voters in swing districts across America.
That’s why he used social media to put Pelosi and the Democrats on blast,
Hard to believe that with thousands of people from South of the Border, walking unimpeded toward our country in the form of large Caravans, that the Democrats won’t approve legislation that will allow laws for the protection of our country. Great Midterm issue for Republicans!
There are just weeks before the 2018 elections.
And polls show either party could win control of the House of Representatives.
Democrats currently hold a 7.1 percent lead in the Real Clear Politics polling average on the question of which party Americans want to see run Congress.
That puts them in a strong position to gain seats, but it also means they could fall short of winning a majority in the House.
Pelosi’s confessions that the Democrats support open borders could further energize Republican voters.
And that could lead to Republicans hanging on to their majority.
