What blue wave? That ‘generic’ Democrat balloting advantage is ALL but gone

(National SentinelMidterms: For most of a year polling firms have been attempting to convince Americans (and conservative Trump supporters in particular) that Democratic voters were energized and ready to turn out by the tens of millions to toss congressional Republicans out of power as a means of rebuking POTUS Donald Trump.

Not so fast.

Throughout much of 2017 and 2018, polling firms had Democrats up — sometimes by double digits — in generic congressional balloting.

Huge blue waving coming, right?

It’s a sure thing…right?

Nope.

The Daily Caller reports that the Democrats’ lead has essentially vanished as we near the home stretch of campaigning ahead of the 2018 midterms:

Republicans appear to have closed the gap with Democrats in the all-important “generic ballot” — a clear sign that the GOP is surging politically in the run-up to the November 2018 midterms.

Democrats continue to insist that a “Blue Wave” will sweep their party back into control of the House of Representatives and may even allow them to recapture the Senate as well.

But the generic ballot — the best single measure of the relative balance of support of the two parties with the electorate — strongly suggests otherwise.

In the last week alone, three major pollsters have found that the gap between the two parties is statistically negligible. YouGov found a Democratic advantage of just 2 points.  Reuters found a margin of 3 points.




And IBB/TIPP, considered by many to be the single most reliable pollster in the country, reported that the race is a dead heat.

These findings, which contrast sharply with the large double-digit lead Democrats enjoyed last December, and again in early July, put the lie to their party’s claims of growing Trump and GOP weakness.

Meanwhile, POTUS Trump’s own polling numbers are growing, especially among blacks and Hispanics.

On the economy, The DC notes, POTUS enjoys widespread approval. And he’s gaining among those who are leaving the Democratic Party in droves via the #WalkAway movement.

“The Democrats need to flip 24 GOP seats to regain control of the House.  But a number of contests in southern California and even traditionally Blue Minnesota could be slipping from the Democrats’ grasp, the latest polls show,” The DC reported.

  1. The media has the only voice, all the voices. Fox is insidious and never to be trusted and we shouldn’t be fooled by a few of their lead popular shows. Polls were designed to predict, but everyone knows for longer than anyone can remember, polls are now used to try to shape and form public opinion. When these mid term elections are over, it’s the red tide that will be lifting all the boats and not any blue wave. the media is owned and operated by the same establishment that has been losing since the American people began to win again.

  2. Don’t count out Soros et al to fix the balloting so that every vote for Trump goes to a DemoRat. These people mean businessssss !! They aren’t gonna stop. By hook or by crook they plan on ousting Trump. Voter fraud must be dealt with NOW.

  3. IT’S NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN. MATTER OF FACT, IN MY HUMBLE OPINON, BY NOVEMBER THE DEMORATS AND FAR LEFT WILL HAVE SHOWN THROUGH THEIR HATRED OF TRUMP “AND” AMERICA, THAT THE GOP WILL PROBABLY PICK UP ADDITIONAL SEATS IN “BOTH” THE HOUSE AND SENATE. THAT’S WHAT HATRED, LIES, BIGOTRY, AND HYPOCRACY WILL GET YOU. AND WHEN THIS DOES HAPPEN, THE DEMORATS HAVE NOBODY TO BLAME BUT THEMSELVES AND THEIR CHILDISH BEHAVIOR FROM HAVING LOST CONTROL NOT ONLY OF POLITICS, BUT OF THE COUNTRY AS A WHOLE. THE MAP IN THIS VIDEO TOWARDS THE END THAT SHOWS WHICH COUNTIES WENT BLUE AND WHICH WENT RED IN 2016 IS PROOF OF THIS… AND I ALSO PREDICT THAT THERE WILL BE EVEN MORE RED COUNTIES IN 2018 AND 2020. THE DEMORATIC PARTY IS “DEAD” FOLKS!!!!!!!!!
