The 2018 midterm elections are likely to be billed as “the most important in our lifetimes”, over and over again, by a maniacal mainstream media ho are openly resisting the President of the United States.
The democratic idea was that Donald Trump’s election, and subsequent predicted failures, would be enough to catapult the republican party into such chaos that there would be only one inevitable outcome of this coming contest – an enormous turning of the political and cultural tide that the democrats could ride into office.
The only problem is that Trump isn’t failing. Not even close.
Now, with the left growing ever more desperate, things are looking bleak thanks to the President’s incredible economic success.
The president can help elect Republicans with the economic numbers because the 2018 midterms are going to be all about Trump. Just like the 2010 midterms, during which Obama admitted Democratic candidates experienced a “shellacking,” was all about him.Trump dominates the news through his daily tweets, outrageous statements and personal charisma. Whether you think the Trump presidency is a 14-car pileup or the Fourth of July fireworks on the National Mall, you simply can’t take your eyes off it.
This means Trump will effectively be on the ballot in every congressional district and in every state where there’s a Senate race — and as long as he keeps talking about the economy, it’s a good place for him to be.
So, if Trump takes to the road to bolster the chances of republicans in these races, there is a real possibility of squelching the democratic hype.
And if the blue wave turns out to be nothing but a puddle, we have a feeling that the democrats will still find a way to drown themselves in it.
