Democrats have a strong advantage in the midterms, making Republicans increasingly worried, suggest Dan Siders and others of Politico. President Trump himself has noted that a Democratic victory is a strong likelihood. He has been campaigning most heavily to boost the GOP’s chances. However, his stance on immigration is alienating moderate voters. Iowa and Alaska, two Republican districts, are facing strong chances of turning blue. All over the country boosted turnouts among Democrats mean Republican seats are being threatened. Healthcare is a key issue in places like Arizona, boosting Democrats’ momentum.
The enthusiasm among voters for Donald Trump is likely going to fuel a GOP victory during the midterms, holds Wayne Allyn Root of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Similar to 2016 when Trump was elected against all odds, there is a silent majority supporting Republicans, which pollsters aren’t able to track. People are happy with the economy and the growth Trump has created. A NumbersUSA poll found that 65% of probable voters will side with the GOP in key swing districts. Republicans are generating more enthusiasm than Democrats, which is crucial here. Issues like immigration will see voters stop the blue wave in its tracks.
