(National Sentinel) Tanking: Perpetual outrage, anger, and disgusting behavior on the part of the Left are not helping Democrats in their quest to retake the House and Senate in the midterms and deal a politically fatal blow to President Donald Trump.
In fact, you could say it’s tanking their efforts.
Once up by double digits — if those surveys were even accurate — Democrats’ slim lead in generic polling ahead of the 2018 midterm elections slipped another 2 points last week amid their manufactured “migrant child crisis.”
As reported by The Daily Wire:
Democrats had hoped to capitalize on widespread furor over the Trump Administration’s policy of separating illegal immigrant families awaiting asylum hearings, but according to a CBS poll out Monday, taken during the two-week-long immigration debate, Democrats actually slid another point on the November generic ballot.
In response to a question asking which party voters would prefer control Congress in November, 40% of respondents said “Democrats,” whereas 36% of respondents said “Republicans,” down one point on the same poll from just two weeks ago.
The poll’s margin of error is just under 3%, putting Republicans and Democrats in a statistical dead heat, just as Congressional campaigns enter the crucial summer months.
The CBS result isn’t even an outlier. A Reuters tracking poll shows Democrats down four points from the second week of June. But more importantly, even favorable polls show a lack of fluctuation following what should have been a key moment for Congressional Democrats; the Economist showed Democrats losing a point since the beginning of June and Quinnipiac showed Democrats motionless these last two weeks.
According to CBS the child separation policy is animating some voters who don’t normally vote in midterm elections to show up in November, and more of them claim they will support Democrats rather than Republicans.
But there is nothing else to suggest that any issue will animate enough Democrats to climb out of this hole they are digging.
And what’s more, if Democrats are getting animated over this issue, you can bet that Republican voters happy with POTUS Trump’s policies are going to show up to support his party as well.
