These polls put the final nail in the coffin of the Democrats’ “blue wave”
Media talking heads and so-called political “experts” have been making dire predictions that a “Blue Wave” in the 2018 Midterms will wipe out the Republican majority in the House and the Senate.
Democrats even claim that they can take down Senator Ted Cruz and flip Texas blue.
But the polling just came in and it was the last thing Chuck Schumer and his pals wanted to hear.
Republicans’ chances of keeping control of the U.S. Senate have increased.
Yahoo Finance reports:
The prospect of Republicans retaining control of the U.S. Senate are looking better, according to polls of races in Texas, Florida and Arizona by CBS News conducted by YouGov and published Sunday.
The polls find incumbent Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz with a lead of 50 percent to 40 percent over Democratic Representative Beto O’Rourke, and Florida Democratic Senator Bill Nelson behind Republican challenger Rick Scott, the state’s governor, among likely voters by a margin of 41 percent to 46 percent.
Democrats need to gain two seats for a majority in the Senate, which is currently divided 51-49 percent in favor of Republicans. The race in Texas has been considered a prime pickup opportunity for Democrats, along with contests in Nevada and Arizona.
Since President Trump’s Inauguration, it has been the Democrats’ dream to win the Senate and House to foil the Make America Great Again agenda and bring impeachment proceedings against Trump.
States such as Texas, Nevada, Arizona, and Florida were all labeled prime targets.
So far Ted Cruz is crushing Beto O’Rourke in Texas by double digits. Their hopes in Florida and Arizona appear to be dwindling as well.
Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer may not like this, but the reality is that President Trump’s support has grown since he was elected – despite constant attacks by the media.
Unemployment is at record lows, consumer confidence is high, and the stock market has broken through new records.
