Pollsters Deliver Bad News to Democrats Excited About a ‘Blue Wave’ in the House

Published

on

For the last year or so, Democrats have been attempting to mobilize their base by building up their confidence with the promise of a “Blue Wave” to sweep through Congress in response to the 2016 election of Donald Trump to the office of president.

Well, it looks like they’re going to have to break their supporters’ hearts, because pollsters have some very bad, bad news for their hopes of a Blue Wave.

In short, they’re going to be dashed to pieces.

According to RCP’s latest average of polls, Republicans now safely have 49 seats in the Senate, which means the Democrats need to win all 7 of the seats that are considered true “toss-ups” to gain the majority in November.

That’s certainly not welcome news to Democrats, who once hoped for a “blue wave” in both chambers. To make matters worse, pollsters have begun sounding the alarm over what once seemed to be the inevitable Democrat takeover of the House.

Among the most influential of the pollsters is Nate Silver, who warned Democrats that even with a generic ballot lead of +7, Democrats could end up failing to take the House.

“With a generic ballot lead of D+7 or so, it’s very possible for polls to about right overall, but for Dems to lose the House because the GOP ekes out wins in lots of the tossup districts. Once you get up to D+9 or so, the dam breaks and GOP would need a systematic polling error,” Silver tweeted Sunday. “We have the D’s generic ballot/popular vote lead trending toward +7.5 or so. So while the topline numbers in our House forecast haven’t changed much, we’ve crossed an important conceptual threshold where the eke-it-one-district-at-a-time scenario is back on the table for the GOP.”

New York Times polling and election reporter Nate Cohn issued a similar warning to Dems Sunday. “The Democrats have put a long list of Republican-leaning districts into play. But it’s not clear whether they actually lead in a lot of them,” Cohn tweeted (h/t Twitchy). “That means there’s still a wide range of possible outcomes in the fight for control of the House.”

Uh oh.

Looks like that whole “Blue Wave” nonsense is not quite a done deal, despite how Democratic politicians have marketed the whole thing. Given the success the GOP is currently enjoying right now, it’s highly unlikely Americans are going to turn out in droves to replace them with Democrats.

We had eight years of Democratic policy that nearly destroyed both the economy and our fragile liberty. Folks will not be too eager to sabotage the rebuilding process.

Woman Rips MAGA Hat From Man’s Head, Then Claims SHE Is the Victim [Details]

How in the world does she figure?

If a person snatches the MAGA hat from your head, who is at fault? That should be rhetorical.

According to a woman who did just that, she is the victim.

It’s getting to the point where you really can’t even make this stuff up anymore.

From Yahoo:

A woman who ripped off a man’s “Make America Great Again” hat at a Mexican restaurant says she wanted retribution for years of discrimination.

On Feb. 15th, Bryton Turner was eating at Casa Vallarta Mexican Restaurant in Falmouth, Mass., when a Brazilian woman, not being named by police, snatched off his red MAGA hat.

“Went out with some friends trying to enjoy some dinner and drinks when this ignoramus randomly tried to hit my hat off and started yelling at me…” Turner wrote on Facebook, sharing two videos. “I wasn’t going to press charges but in front of four cops she did it again so now she’s going to jail.”

[…]

Yahoo Lifestyle couldn’t reach the woman for comment. “I had a little bit to drink maybe that’s the reason that I couldn’t walk away but being discriminated for so many times in my life, I just had to stand up for myself,” she told Boston 25 News. “He’s not a victim. I am the victim. I have been bullied, OK?”

Check out the video posted by Bryton Turner, showing the woman snatching his hat…

Despite taking the time to fly to the Middle East to spend Christmas with the troops, President Trump and First Lady Melania were mocked by CNN and the like.

Go figure, right?

Melania wore the wrong boots.

Donald, well, was Donald. That’s always enough to set the MSM off in and of itself.

The worst part is that CNN blasted 45 for signing MAGA hats for the troops despite there being no rule against it.

What’s worse is that Obama signed Obama-type stuff for the troops back in the day, and the mainstream media was dead silent.

There’s a word for that.

It’s called hypocrisy.

From Daily Wire:

As noted by Joe Concha at The Hill, “The worst kind of bias is the bias of omission. And what’s missing from this report is precedent as it pertains to President Obama who, as a candidate, signed memorabilia for U.S. service members overseas in July 2008. Not a hint of criticism followed.”

SFGate reported on the Obama trip to Afghanistan at the time, though they never highlighted the signing of memorabilia by Mr. Obama.

Michelle did it, too:

CNN owes Trump a big apology.

Ocasio-Cortez Trolled for the Second Time After NEW Billboard Goes Up In NYC

And boom goes the dynamite!

Self-described Democrat Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fought hard to make sure Amazon would not build a new headquarters in New York.

She celebrated after the company decided to pull out.

A couple of days ago, a billboard went up in Times Square lambasting the freshman lawmaker for her actions.

LOOK:

AOC saw the billboard.

She figured she had to respond.

She sent a tweet calling the sign “wack”:

The people behind the billboard saw AOC’s response.

They decided to go after her one more time…

Check this out, per Daily Wire:

Job Creators Network put up a second billboard that stated: “Hey AOC, Saw your wack tweet.”

LOOK:

The criticism of Ocasio-Cortez “comes after Ocasio-Cortez vigorously defended her role in sinking Amazon’s move to New York City on Tuesday in the face of bipartisan criticism,” Fox News reported. “The freshman Democratic New York congresswoman has faced days of criticism from normally friendly media voices and fellow Democrats over her role in Amazon’s decision to pull back from building a $2.5 billion campus in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens.”

New York City Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio had to correct Ocasio-Cortez for incorrectly thinking that “the $3 billion in tax breaks that were going to go to Amazon still existed after Amazon pulled out of NYC,” The Daily Wire reported.

And boom goes the dynamite!

Ocasio-Cortez believes she was born “privileged.”

Because she was born in the USA? Because she was born into wealth?

Nope. It’s ecause she was born straight.

WATCH:

While attacking former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who may run as an Independent for president in 2020, AOC wound up with egg all over her face.

See her tweet:

Pretty rude, right?

The problem is that Ocasio-Cortez clearly has no clue about Howard’s background.

-Schultz was born on July 19, 1953, in Brooklyn, New York. In an interview with Bloomberg, he said growing up in the projects — “loosely described as the other side of the tracks”

-He experienced poverty at an early age. When Schultz was 7 years old, his father broke his ankle while working as a truck driver picking up and delivering diapers. At the time, his father had no health insurance or worker’s compensation, and the family was left with no income.

Reactions:

Schultz isn’t exactly a conservative, but he has been ripping AOC and Senator Elizabeth Warren like he’s getting paid to do it.

This is how some Dems reacted after learning Schultz might run in 2020:
