Even way up in supposedly rugged, independent, AK...same crap- Trump is evil, Helldabeast/Bernout got cheated, and pining for Odumbo and company.
Already seen the new Bernie 2020 stickers, the "H" stickers, "RESIST" stickers, etc.
For one thing, I think it's important to note that many Trump supporters are afraid to admit they support him. We've all seen the wave of violence and hatred for anyone wearing a MAGA hat, or speaking out conservatively. The left will attempt to destroy you, politically, socially, legally, financially, etc.

For another thing, I don't believe the left's hatred is infectious.

Let's compare.

Trumps beaten something like 13-15 Economic Records in a year and a half. JOBS are infectious. If Pop's get's a better job, better benefits, better raises, or a one-time bonus from the lowered Corporate tax rate of money being brought back, that gets passed onto the family and talked about. It infects the family because it betters the family.

Compare that to the un-hinged hysterical, frothing, insanity towards Trump. I don't think that is infectious. Because - even with a barrage of 24/7 HATRED! OUTRAGE! ARGHHH! against Trump from the media, hollywood, celebrities, rich and famous - his approval ratings keep increasing. The hate isn't spreading. It isn't consuming people who voted for Trump the first time.

The quote that comes to mind, shame on me for not recalling who said it, is paraphrased here - "Before I voted against Hillary, now I'm voting FOR Trump'.

Hell, I saw this morning his approval amongst the black community is almost 30%! 30%! Unheard of for a Republican. This is the community who voted almost 100% for Obama, twice.

I think the left is losing it's base. Not it's batshit crazy base, which is small. **** those people - you'll never satisfy them. But it's blue collar, unionized, traditional, family orientated, moderates. And I think he is also pulling in lots of 'First Time GOP' votes from the left.

So there is the support. Which is quiet but growing with the economy and the embrace of the hate-mongering and socialism is driving lots of their own party away.

And then there is the purse strings being cut with the latest Union ruling. That gutted the fund-raising for the DNC. This is in addition to them being broke for the past year, while the RNC is hitting record highs in donations for their 'war chest'. Good luck. Hillary spent 1.2 BILLION compared to Trump's 600 MILLION. And still got her ass handed to her. Now what they gonna do?

And sure, there's the whole 'history' of averages - that the President's side always loses, 15 or whatever, seats the first mid-term after his election.

You gotta throw out all of those averages from past history that have been calculated by 'experts'. (How many times do you have to be wrong for that title to be yanked?)

This isn't an average President and these ain't average times.

Red Wave.

Coming out in the open as socialist, and last couple days, calling for and banning that inforwar site and leaving up nation of islam and antifa and other hate sites, attacking free speech and going socialist should give many people pause come election time, or maybe the people want this nazi shit here in the USA.

ATTACKING certain people in the street, certain people not welcomed, can't shop here, don;t buy from that guy, not welcomed in education, your kind not welcomed here and won't be hired, banning free speech, the equivalent of book burning with this Inforwar banning, don;t like his ideas, ban his ass,,,,,,,,,

This is shaping up to be 1933 all over again.

Right down to the new brown shirts out in the streets, antifa and others.

Obammy and HRC convinced them they can win this war, dummies one and all they are.

And they really don;t understand, nope, not going to comply with their silly ass shit, now what ya going to do, not a damned thing.

Damn, I guess I really am a militant knothead!
There are enough of US to do AWAY WITH THEM. Blue wave? Might start out that way But Blood is a RED WAVE that WILL wash over those Communist, Socialist Pieces of Shit. Take The GLOVES OFF and Get it ON.

We’ll stay Red this election, but by 2028 I expect enough leftist and Mexican immigration to turn TX into a hard left Kali paradise.

I would not worry too much, this country can't keep on as it has for another ten years.

A powder keg it be and children are holding the matches.

Ohio's 12 Congressional district seems to have elected a republican to finish out the year in a seat emptied by a republican. This election was supposed to be the referendum on how the nation is going to vote. The district was 'jsrrymandered' by the Republicans specifically to stay republican according to the dems. Last night the vote was less than 2% in the Republican's favor with 100% of the districts reporting, just provisional and absentee ballots to count yet. As above the more rural areas (4 counties) all went to the republican while the north part of columbus went to the dem. Borh tried to play to the middle, especially the dem who came up with a republican girlfriend at the last moment...
The worst part is we get all the same commercials again from these 2 idiots for november..

Close votes in special elections is the norm, in that conservatives are out working and dimwits have nothing to do but vote.

I'm beginning to look at this "blue wave" being a member of the "big lie" told often enough,,,,, people begin to believe anything.

Now its a Maybe, used to be a slam dunk!

Take a look at the black vote %.

Conservatives normally get, around 5 or 6%, been this way for ages.

Trump took 8%

For polls recently conducted, showing his support among black voters is now ranging from a low of 21%, this from the NAACP, to a high of 30% from main stream pollsters.

If only half this dramatic rise in support transfers to local congressional races, everyone will be having a November 16 moment come this November.

And blacks don't have to actually vote for dimwits/conservatives, all they need to do is stay home, or at work and not vote to shift the election results into no one knows zones.

Dimwits can't win if they don;t take 90% plus of the black vote, and they ain't got that today and the trend is going away from dimwits.

The more the press screams blue wave, the more they know dimwits are in serious trouble.

And Hispanics, that group of faithful dimwit voters is doing the same thing as blacks, voting for jobs and security.

No one knows what's going to happen in November, but chances for a blue wave election, not shaping up looking real good today.

If I were to bet today, I'd bet, 10 to 15 seats to dimwits with the house remaining R.

Trump took PA and that helped seal the election, so I am interested to see if such wave continues to elect Barletta in over Casey for the Senate seat. We've also been redistricted for the House so we'll see there what happens.

Last December, the generic ballot was plus 12 to 14 in favor of the dimwits.

Today, its plus 2, a little less, and the best pollster has it dead even, 50/50.

At this rate, it will be plus 2 or 3 conservative come November.

NO ONE knows what will happen in November.

But I like our chances of keeping peulosic out of the house speaker ship role.

Oregon is looking at the possibility of its first Repub Governor since 1987

https://katu.com/news/politics/orego...-be-tightening

Some polls are showing Buhler tied with the Soros backed, openly bi-sexual and pagan thing we have in office. This is pretty huge in that Oregon has had the dems deeply entrenched in state politics for decades.

So is liberal, uber liberal,,,,,,,,, CT.

This is shaping up as the "big lie" I hope.
Keep telling people they can't win, its a "blue wave" for sure,,, hoping enough believe this crap and stay home come November.

Just get out and vote without listening the psychological warfare shit from the msm.
