(National Sentinel) Election 2018: We keep hearing (from Democrats) about how there is so much hidden hatred of President Donald Trump throughout the country that a “blue wave” is coming in November to sweep Republicans out of power.
And yet, week by week we’re seeing more and more evidence that is simply false.
In fact, new data surfaced on Tuesday that further disproves the fantasy that Democrats are going to kick Republicans out of the House and Senate in the midterms.
As reported by The Daily Caller, new data show that Senate Democrats in particular are in trouble:
Democrats are in for an uphill battle in November’s midterm elections as they struggle to overtake the GOP-led Senate, according to an Axios and SurveyMonkey poll of key states on Tuesday.
Although Democrats only need to pick up two seats to gain the majority in the Senate, they are struggling to control 10 states already held by Democratic senators. These states are now predominantly red states with voters who are strong supporters of President Donald Trump.
They include Indiana, Missouri, Montana, and North Dakota, all of which Trump won over in 2016, while his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton couldn’t even win over 40 percent of voters in any of those states, according to a Politico report.
Chances of flipping most states where Republican senators are up for reelection seems slim, with states like Nebraska, Utah and Wyoming most likely a solid GOP win, according to polling data by RealClearPolitics. Democrats’ only hope will be to replace GOP Sen. Jeff Flake from Arizona as he retires with one of their own, while simultaneously defeating GOP Sen. Dean Heller in Nevada.

Midterm prediction polls show that in an effort to add two seats to Democrats’ existing 26, they will likely lose races in Nevada, Florida and Indiana, which will squash any chances of overtaking Republicans in the Senate races, according to the Axios and SurveyMonkey poll.
The poll suggests that 49 percent of voters would vote for GOP Gov. Rick Scott over Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson in Florida, 52 percent would vote for GOP Rep. Kevin Cramer over Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota, and 49 percent would vote for Republican Mike Braun against Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly in Indiana.
And that’s not even counting vulnerable Democrats in the red states of Missouri (Claire McCaskill) and West Virginia (Joe Manchin).
What’s more, Republicans are jazzed and ready to show up and vote in the midterms, according to a CBS News poll late last month:

“Blue” wave? Hardly. Try red wave.
Campaigning on hate, socialism, open borders and anti-ICE isn’t a winner in most of the country.
