That led many Democrats and Democrat-aligned pundits to declare a “blue wave” was approaching this fall that would wash away Republican control of Congress and be the clearest indication yet that Americans were having buyer’s remorse over the election of POTUS Donald Trump.
But by spring the advantage began to slip away. In May, The Hill reported the advantage had tanked from about 13 or points in January to just 7 points.
It’s only gotten worse for Democrats since. And here’s how we know.
For days now the insane Left and the Democratic Party — one in the same — have been hammering POTUS Donald Trump over his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Because Trump didn’t go over and body-slam Putin on the dais in Helsinki, he really is owned by the Kremlin leader and ‘we were right all along’ about their collusion!
That’s a winner at the polls, right?
As Zero Hedge notes, the percentage of Americans who give one thought to “the situation with Russia” is so low it doesn’t even have a numerical value:
While ever-hope-filled expectations among the left are for a ‘blue wave’ in the Mid-term elections, we suspect things may not turn out quite as planned given the last week’s “crisis”. Even before President Trump had set foot in Helsinki, the left and the media were banging the drums of war against “the thug” Putin and how he would trump Trump, and once the press conference furore was over, all hell broke loose as the left-leaning world attempted to out-signal one another’s virtue as to the “treasonous”, “surrender” that had occurred.
Once again – the “Russia, Russia, Russia” cries drowned out any sane discussion of the end of cold war 2.0.
There’s just one problem with the Democrats’ unending focus on Russia and the media’s constant collusion chatter: few Americans care, because – drumroll – they have real lives in the real economy to worry about.
As the latest survey from Gallup shows: when asked what the most important problem facing the nation is, Russia did not even warrant a 1% – and worse still, it is declining in importance from there.
Democrats are expecting a “blue wave” in November, right?
So how come they keep changing their campaign slogan?
In fact, why do they even need a slogan if the elections are in the bag?
As Fox News reports:
Democrats are taking a mulligan on a slogan for the midterms after their first was mercilessly mocked, this time hoping to tap into the populist spirit under the message: “For the People.”
Politico reported that the slogan was unveiled in a private meeting Wednesday, and is meant to focus on economic issues.
Dems will reportedly focus on three key areas: addressing health care issues and infrastructure spending, and highlighting Republican corruption.
The move comes after Democrats last year pushed the slogan: “A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages.”
This drew immediate taunts given its obvious similarity to the Papa John’s tagline, “Better Ingredients. Better Pizza. Papa John’s.”
Democrats want to focus on “economic issues?” Really? Trump and the Republicans have created a business-friendly economy that is so flush with new jobs the country is at full employment — so much so that it’s impossible to bring back manufacturing jobs because there aren’t enough workers to fill them.
We thought Barack Obama and Democrats already fixed “healthcare.” Or doesn’t Obamacare count as a “fix?”
GOP corruption? After Spygate? Really?
Democrats are shedding voters not gaining them, as the #WalkAway movement proves.
“…[I]n November, voters will render their decision, and whatever they decide it’ll be on Trump’s platform of economic nationalism, which has boosted economic growth and created jobs,” Zero Hedge noted, as Republican voters will be jacked up and ready to keep their party’s majority.
