With Donald Trump getting pounded everyday, increased Democratic fundraising and other signs like generic ballot numbers and Republican drop outs?
Things look certain that Nancy Pelosi is gonna be getting the gavel back to lead the House come January of next year….
One wonders if the wave could help Democrats in Senate races?
Signs of a blue wave are increasing as lawmakers return to Washington for their final few weeks of legislative work before the crucial midterm elections.
Democrats have led Republicans by at least 11 points in five of the last six polls asking voters whether they favor a generic Democrat or a generic Republican in the race for Congress.
That margin only slightly trails the Democratic advantage in 2006, when the party won back control of Congress.
Democrats also enjoy a fundraising advantage, one that is perhaps bolstered by polls showing their party is more enthusiastic about turning out to vote this November, figures borne out by higher turnout in Democratic primary contests in states across the country.
After a brutal August that ended with the conviction of his former campaign chairman, a guilty plea from his former personal lawyer and a final feud with Sen. John McCain that played out during memorials to the late Arizona Republican, President Trump’s job approval rating has sunk to record or near-record lows in several polls.
Reputable surveys show his approval rating trading at the nadir of his traditional range, between 36 percent and 41 percent. More voters strongly disapprove of Trump than approve in total, a measure of how heavy an anchor he will be around the GOP candidate’s necks.
Taken in total, the evidence suggests the Labor Day holiday may have been the point where the blue wave crested for Democrats — at least when it comes to the battle for the House.
As recently as late July — 100 days out from the midterms — signs of the wave were much less evident.
Republicans take solace in a Senate map that bolsters their chances of growing a narrow majority, though Democrats also hope to break through and win the Senate majority.
And those tasked with maintaining control of the House say they remain optimistic….
Roughly 100 of the 240 Republican-controlled House seats are currently within Democratic reach, posing the most serious threat to the GOP majority since the party won control in 2010.
Despite the GOP’s built-in advantages due to incumbency and redistricting, 60 of those seats are even more precariously positioned, with the Republican nominee either holding just a slight competitive edge, dead even against their Democratic opponent or trailing….
