Showdown in November: Fearsome Blue Wave or Flaccid Democrat Failure?
Kurt Schlichter
4/16/2018 12:01:00 AM - Kurt Schlichter

There is a huge opinion schism between conservatives inside the Beltway who think a midterm Democrat tsunami is coming, and many conservatives outside the swamp, in America, who are not so sure. One thing is certain – the gimp box media and the left’s Fredcon enablers are working overtime to psych us out and make defeat a done deal. But nothing is a done deal. We have six months. The Republicans just need to get smart and fight.

Oh. Well, we’re doomed.

But maybe not. There’s always hope for an upset – just ask President Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit.

First, the bad news. The liberals are angry and motivated and they are clearly going to vote. The big question is whether they are going to manifest in much higher than usual numbers in patriotic districts now held by Republicans instead of merely running up the score in places the like the shooting gallery districts of Chicago or the feces n’ syringe districts of San Francisco that already go 70% Democrat. So those hellholes double the number of voters and go 80% Democrat?

I guess I'm wondering how the Dems are going to do it. The DNC is broke, and unless they get a massive cash infusion, or the PACs pick up the ball, they will have a limited ground game for GOTV.

They are spending $5 to $10M, and sometimes way more for each of these special elections while they have way more seats to defend than the GOP, especially in the Senate.

They've lost a full third or more of their voters, the blue collar Dems, particularly outside the bi-coastal strongholds.

They are starting to fall in the generic Congressional ballot.

The only way they can pull this off is if the GOP stumbles so badly that they push everyone in their camp. Which is possible, but the reality remains that the Dems are not in control of their own destiny in '18.

Don't count the GOP out.
Heck... when have they ever let us down before?   ;)
