Real Clear Politics is Predicting
a Red Wave in the Senate

Daily Caller, by Evie Fordham

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/11/2018 1:18:15 PM

RealClearPolitics data is pointing to a red wave in the Senate this November, with recent polls showing key seats like North Dakota and Arizona going or staying red. RealClear currently predicts that at least 49 Senate seats will be Republican and at least 44 will be Democrats, with seven toss-up races. In three of those toss-ups, recent polls contain good news for Republican candidates. If Republicans do win in the four toss-up races where they have the best chances — Arizona, Tennessee, Nevada and Missouri — the Senate could see a net gain

The GOP has no reason why they aren´t adding 4-6 seats this November. The math was in their favor before the Democrats stepped in it big time with their Kavanaugh hearing fiascos.

Now it´s time to hold the House.

Thanks to our Democrat friends for keeping the GOP Establishment from snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

Why is two seats a wave? More like a trickle. Its nice to win but there´s no use in overstating it. They overuse landslide a lot too.

Chances are this is because the economy is doing well enough that the ´bottom´ 1/3 of the working class have jobs and the hope of even better jobs. This is according to Conrad Black. The Democrats essentially abandoned the working class years ago even before Obama won. The Democrats offered nothing for working people - other than food stamps and very expensive ´free´ healthcare. These people are now voting - they feel they have a stake in the political scene. They see President Trump as ´their´ guy?

I´m glad to see Nevada and Arizona are now showing the Republican ahead - if only by a few points. Hope to see Indiana and Missouri follow the same path. We´ll need some more R´s for the next Supreme Court confirmation - which could easily be within the next year.

Can see the Republicans picking up 4 05 5 seats in the Senate. Indiana (R+9), Missouri (R+9), Montana (R+11), North Dakota (R+16), and West Virginia (R+20) are all held by Democrats but have Republican majorities. There are also Florida (R+2) and Ohio (R+3).

Polls show the Democrats picking up 15-20 seats in the House, but many are listed as tossups when the district has a Republican majority.

Get out, vote, and make it happen! With their rhetoric and treatment of Kavanagh, the Democrats are imploding!

Need to push the idea of "we aren´t looking to resist, but to engage, to work on-behalf of our state, and find ways to help bring more jobs, good jobs, and results".

There are areas who will only resist, and they may find they will lose out to those willing to work with instead of resist.

Think of California, which only seems to be pushing the resist mantra, but will they end up losing out on deals, on jobs, and other things the government assists with ALL due to other states and cities looking to work with the current administration instead?

And, don´t be fooled by those conservative sounding House Democrat candidates, particularly those who´ve never held any political office, as they will forced to vote the liberal/progressive agenda of Nancy Pelosi.

I have been predicting a gain from 3 to 5 seats in the Senate in November for about 18 months. I stand by that.

The Kavanaugh attacks may increase that to 6 or 7 Senate seats gained, possibly.

I think Republicans will hold the House, possibly even gain seats. The long, historic norm for midterms when the House, Senate and Presidency are held by the same party is for the majority party to lose many seats in the House, often losing control. If we lose a few seats and hold the House majority, or even gain seats, it will be a big victory. If we lose the House, it will be, unfortunate, but normal.

Here is RCP´s best guess at what the 2016 outcome would be-Published on Nov. 7th, 2016. All their latest polling data, their compute4r algorithms, Larry Sabato´s best guesses combined with polls from overseas- all showed almost the exact opposite of how the election turned out.

Electoral College

RCP prediction: Hillary 323 - Trump: 215

Actual Outcome: Hillary 227 - Trump 304

So, if RCP is predicting something- Laugh. It has as much worth as used toilet paper.

MSNBC analysts from both sides of the aisle hit Texas Democratic Senate candidate Beto O´Rourke for being on a "vanity project" in his approach to the campaign.(Snip) . However, Cruz´s lead in the polls has grown over the past month despite O´Rourke´s impressive haul. "What he´s achieved for that money is he´s now the most unpopular statewide figure in Texas," Republican pollster Chris Wilson said on MSNBC. O´Rourke has run as an unabashed progressive in a state that hasn´t elected a Democrat to statewide office in decades. In a new Quinnipiac poll showing him trailing Cruz by 9 points,

REYNOSA, Mexico — It was the third time Ingrid had tried to make it across an international bridge into Texas. The first time, she said, Mexican officials stopped her on the bridge into Laredo and demanded that she pay $1,500 for her and her two children to cross into the United States, where she planned to seek asylum. A few weeks later, they barred Ingrid — a Mexican permanent resident born in Guatemala, with Mexican-born children — from passing the turnstiles to cross the bridge into Hidalgo, threatening to deport her and rip up her documents.

Robert ´Beto´ O´Rourke is a media darling. The press has showered him with almost as much glowing coverage as liberals across the country have showered him with donations. He´s been swooned over as ´Kennedyesque,´ but not for the most applicable reason. And not too long ago, a handful of polls showed him neck and neck with Sen. Ted Cruz in red Texas. Things appeared to be tight enough that national Republicans poured reinforcements into the race, hoping to highlight O´Rourke´s extraordinary liberalism. He is pro-impeachment, pro-late term abortion,

With less than two weeks until early voting begins in Texas, the hype around Betomania looks to be losing some of its luster. Or, rather, the Texas electorate’s muscle memory is kicking in as more people start tuning in and making up their minds. Beto O’Rourke is trailing Ted Cruz among likely voters by 9 percentage points, 54-45, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Thursday — making up no ground from the same poll’s September numbers. Gubernatorial challenger Lupe Valdez is now trailing Abbott by 20 points, the same margin by which Wendy Davis lost to Greg Abbott in 2014.

Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz maintains a sizable lead in his re-election bid, a poll released Thursday shows.

Beto O’Rourke of El Paso among likely voters, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll. “Is the Beto bubble bursting or just hissing away with a slow leak?” asked Peter A.

There is no way Robert Francis O´Rourke, alias "Beto," a.k.a. the no-doubt gleaming future of the Democratic Party is as delusional about his prospects for success as his followers. That would be impossible. The Texas congressman is your average 46-year-old liberal failson politico, the grandson of a secretary of the Navy, the son of a judge, a hanger-on in his party who graduated from playing in an amazingly bad hardcore punk band to a seat on the El Paso City Council. After that, he challenged Rep. Silvestre Reyes,

It was this week two years ago that Hillary Clinton’s victory looked assured, when the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape of Donald Trump bragging about sexual assault appeared all but certain to end his campaign. Jesse Ferguson remembers it well. The deputy press secretary for Clinton’s campaign also remembers what happened a month later. It’s why this veteran Democratic operative can’t shake the feeling that, as promising as the next election looks for his party, it might still all turn out wrong.

It was the waning days of March, and he was readying himself for something big. The one-time finance director of Russia’s flagship airline, he was preparing for a trial in a London court.

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren has released a DNA test that shows “strong evidence” she has Native-American heritage, rebutting President Donald Trump’s ridicule of her as “fake Pocahontas” while she signals a possible 2020 presidential run.

Trouble. Trouble. Trouble. Singer Taylor Swift endorsed Democrat Phil Bredesen on October 8th in the Tennessee Senate race. Swift also smeared Marsha Blackburn with far left nonsense. But unfortunately Bredesen’s campaign has collapsed since the endorsement. James O’Keefe and Project Veritas caught Bredesen campaign staffers admitting that he has been deceiving voters and attempting to appear more moderate than he actually is. Bredesen, who was recently endorsed by Taylor Swift, has infamously claimed that he would have voted to confirm Justice Brett Kavanaugh — but his campaign says it is just a vote grab.

Washington is in another frenzy over the disclosure that President Trump’s lawyers are preparing answers to written questions from special counsel Robert Mueller. Observers are speculating on the meaning of this move, as anticipation grows for the investigation’s culmination. If the suspense is killing you, a bigger surprise may await. The most significant aspect of this story may be what it did not contain: questions about obstruction. Mueller is asking about Russian collusion, rather than the driving force behind his appointment after the firing of former FBI director James Comey. Indeed, ample reasons exist to question whether
