(National Sentinel) Propaganda: Politico Dick Morris is advising Republican voters not to be dejected by mainstream media reporting that a ‘blue wave’ is coming in the November midterm elections, especially in the Senate.
In fact, he says, a major new survey suggests that Democrats are in trouble, not Republican incumbents.
While the national media is rife with speculation that the 2018 midterm elections will be bad news for President Donald Trump, a poll of 250,000 registered voters released by Morning Consult indicates otherwise.
In state after state, a plurality of voters say that the Democrat incumbent senator does not deserve re-election and in half the states, the generic party ballot points to a Republican victory.
Since the Democrats have 26 states at risk (with Democrat or Democrat-leaning “independent” incumbents), while the GOP has only nine, this trend is very bad for Democrats.
In a number of swing states, when voters were asked if the incumbent Democratic senator deserves re-election, most resoundingly responded “no.”
That includes Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida, and Sen. Joe Donnelly of Indiana. While Sen. Dean Heller of Nevada, a Republican, is underwater, so too are Democrats in North Dakota, Ohio, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
“This will give Republicans something they have not had all year: a working majority,” Morris wrote, blaming the wide gap between these figures and what’s being reported by the press as “media bias” of the kind that got the 2016 election outcomes all wrong.
He also noted that Trump’s approval rating has gone up in recent months as well, despite the nakedly negative attacks on him by the media and the Deep State.
“Given the dismal ratings of these Democrat incumbents, they are likely to base their campaigns on negatives in the hopes of knocking their challengers off their game,” Morris writes, but in the end it should be a good election cycle for Republicans in the Senate.
