Dozens and dozens of people showed up for Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum’s rally featuring Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) as the main speaker.

And that’s about it.

It would appear as if the auditorium is darn near entirely empty.

If Democrats still believe there’s a “blue wave” set to hit Congress on November 6, the clip above does little to support there claim.

Bernie Sanders and Democrat National Committee President Tom Perez are attempting to temper expectations about the “blue wave.”

They aren’t so certain anymore.

From Fox News:

“A lot of people talk about this ‘blue wave’ and stuff,” Sanders told The Hill. “I don’t believe it.”

Sanders, an independent who ran for president in 2016 as a Democrat, added: “I happen to think that on election night we’ll find a very, very close situation and maybe a handful of votes determining whether Democrats gain control of the House.”

President Trump’s overall approval rating hit 50%. That’s quite high, considering the majority of news coverage of the commander-in-chief is negative.

An even more interesting statistic should have Democrats very worried about the midterm elections.

Black support for Trump has now hit a whopping 40%.

A new study shows taxes in Florida would spike to the tune of billions of dollars if Gillum’s policies are implemented – as one could expect.

From Free Beacon:

Progressive Democrat Andrew Gillum’s tax plan proposals “would adversely impact the business climate of the state” if he is elected governor, costing Florida 155,000 jobs and $28.2 billion in economic loses per year, according to the James Madison Institute (JMI), a Tallahassee-based conservative think-tank.

Gillum recently stated that police officers are going “too far” if they pull out a gun, baton, or taser in the line of duty.

“At the time that a law enforcement official has to go to a weapon, to a gun, to a baton, to a taser, then they have already have to go too far by their very presence,” he continued. “By the very trust that they inspire in community and in society, they are supposed to be able to bring most situations to heel.”

WATCH:

Gillum’s brother is under investigation for potential voter fraud.

Less than a year before gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum publicly denounced President Donald Trump’s efforts to investigate the threat of voter fraud, Gillum’s brother, Marcus Gillum, voted in the 2016 general election in Tallahassee, Florida while a resident of Chicago, Illinois.

None of these reports look good for Gillum, but how will Floridians respond in November?
