House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is in rather good spirits when it comes to this year’s midterm elections, optimistically believing it’s going to be a stellar year for the Democratic Party.
In fact, Pelosi is so confident she’s already predicting victory for herself and for many other Democrats running for office, which either makes her prophetic or delusional. You decide.
She said on Tuesday, “We will win. I will run for Speaker. I feel confident about it. And my members do, too.”
Shrugging off the possibility of her being challenged in her leadership role, Pelosi stressed the significance of her being the only woman who holds a top position in the House of Representatives, Senate and the White House, saying: “It’s important that it not be five white guys at the table, no offense. I have no intention of walking away from that table.”
But Pelosi’s negative public perception is even causing members of her own party to shy away from her, with Democratic candidate Conor Lamb paying for his own ads earlier this year in his Pennsylvania race saying that he “already said on the front page of the newspaper that I don’t support Nancy Pelosi.” Lamb won the seat in a Republican-leaning district.
Of course, while there’s a ton of folks who are distancing themselves from Pelosi due to her less than stellar public approval ratings, she’s not without her supporters:
“The problem that Pelosi complainers have is that no one can beat her. And that continues to be the case. Who’s going to beat Nancy Pelosi? There’s no one that can. So she’ll win in the Caucus, and then she’ll win on the floor,” said an unnamed ally of the Minority Leader.
In order to take back the House during the midterms this year, the Democratic Party must take 23 seats back from the Republicans, and while many progressives in the party are holding out hope for a “blue wave” to sweep the country, many folks are calling that a pipe dream.
Given the success President Trump is having with both the economy and foreign policy, in addition to the leftist media not learning their lesson in 2016, it’s looking very promising for the GOP this election season.
Let’s hope Republicans retain control so Trump can continue implementing his agenda and keep making America great again.
