If it’s one thing the media is good at it is manipulating the poll readings before an election.
Right now they’re indicating a Democratic Party win.
That’s not the way I see it.
The Republicans should win in both the Senate and the House. One year ago I thought that the Republican Party was going to gain seats. I still guardedly think so although I am less optimistic as to the size of the gains.
The only obstacle to gaining seats at this point is the failure of the President to accomplish anything.
This President has been an a failure in attaining his goals. With the exception of executive orders what has he accomplished?
The individual mandate can be reversed easily by a Democratic Congress and President. All his executive orders can be reversed. The free trade agreements can be re-entered. I don’t see a damn thing that he’s done to bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States. I think his economic recovery is a fraud backed up by cooked numbers. Foreign wars? Hah! We’re still there.
That stated, why do I think the Republicans will win?
First, the baby boomers are getting older. The baby boomers still make up a significant portion of the population. As people get older they become more conservative.
Second, the Democratic Party has become more radicalized. I evidence this by the increased harassment of politicians that you see in restaurants and the rise of Antifa. But it’s not just that. It’s the failure of responsible Democratic Party leaders to denounce these radicals.
Third, the Democratic Party has become the party of obstruction rather than the party of ideas. Their whole goal for the last two years has been to obstruct Trump, not to offer anything new.
Fourth, the bending of traditionally Democratic leaders to the right in order to win an election. When you see senators such as Claire McCaskill denouncing the “crazy Democrats” in order to win an election that’s an ominous sign. It signals that she is in trouble and that she knows it. Where was she three, six and twelve months ago denouncing the radical left?
Fifth, the lack of foot soldiers within the Democratic Party. When the Deep State murdered Seth Rich, they lost their foot soldiers. Foot soldiers talk to each other, especially about the corruption which Seth Rich revealed to Julian Assange. You need foot soldiers to get out the vote. What the Democratic Party was left with was a corrupt, aging leadership and a rabble, a raging mob, at the bottom. The leadership can’t control their mob from harassing politicians at restaurants; they won’t be able to get them to go vote next Tuesday.
Sixth, the Democratic Party has no base in Middle America. Their working class base is now solidly with Trump. Who the Democrats are stuck with now are Starbucks literati, Marxists and illegal immigrants.
Seventh, the failure of the Democratic Party to admit to itself its own corruption (which is why Seth Rich leaked those documents) and its own culpability for losing the 2016 election. Instead they covered it up with a bogus Russia story. They fooled no one but themselves.
The Republicans should win handily. I will be surprised if they do not.
In a way, this will be good for the country. It will be good because Trump will now have no excuse to not prosecute a conservative agenda which he will not do. He won’t because he’s a globalist posing as a nationalist.
When he does not do such, the conservatives will then have good reason to work with the Democrats to ask him to leave.
So it can be a win for everyone.
