    Mitch McConnell says a blue wave wont be coming in 2018

    Do you believe him or do you think its just bluster


    The blue wave that Democrats hope to ride to midterm glory has ebbed to a blue trickle, gleeful Republicans say.

    Buoyed by a surging economy and President Trumps rising approval numbers, the long-expected tsunami of Democratic victories in this years congressional elections has all but evaporated, says Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).


    The GOP could even pick up six or eight Senate seats, he told The Hill on Saturday, and has a chance to topple powerful Democratic incumbents like Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown once in the running to be Hillary Clintons 2016 veep running mate and now said to be mulling a 2020 presidential run.


    I saw a survey within the last week in Ohio indicating that race is very competitive, said McConnell. I would certainly add Ohio to the list of states where Democrats are suddenly vulnerable.


    The party in the White House typically loses some seats in midterm elections an average of 31 seats since 1976. And the figures are worse when the president has an approval rating under 50 percent, as Trumps numbers have been.

    I think the odds are against the Dems getting control of the House. They have nothing to offer.

    There was never a chance they could get control of the Senate. They will be doing well to stay as high as 45.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

    They will pick up seats but I doubt they will win the house. The backlash on Impeach Trump, Raising taxes, their Resistance and obstruction of Trump, Their Socialism, and the Lame Stream putting their finger on the scale for the Demos will keep them out of gaining any power.

    They are both corrupt and either could still screw up November.

    Of course Republicans cannscrew it up, because thats what they usually do, but I dont believe this so called blue wave really never existed. It was basically a media creating

    And if Mitch would just calm down, it is May. Late May I realize but anything can happen, November in politics is a long way away and I'd be saying that if it was late October.

    Let's all enjoy summer and see where we are come September...after Labor Day.
