If the polling is anywhere near correct?
Democrats WILL take control of the US House and will make gains in Governorships…..
But the ‘Blue Wave’ appears to be NOT a tsumi….
Now this ole’ dog would like to be wrong…
But I don’t think so….
Pundits and forecasters that are talking about up wards of 50 House seat’s turning over from Republicans to Democrats are stretching things….Democrats need 23/24 seats from the Republicans….
That they are almost assured of….
My guess would be more like 30 to 40 seat gain….
The Senate is different…
If polling is anywhere close to what will be the outcome on November 6?
Republicans could come out with an increase of 2 to 3 US Senate seats instead of a Democratic upset gain of the same amount which would put Chuck Schumer as the Senate Majority leader…Don’t bet on THAT…
The problem for Democrats is the same one it has ALWAYS been…
With more registered Democrats and increasing numbers of Independent voters?
Democrats STILL have problems getting their supporters to actually come out and vote….
Last week on facebook I had a conversation with a local community guy about Democrats….
He was about protests….
I reminding him about getting out the vote…
His reply was he didn’t trust voting and said why bother?
Because Republicans count on this reasoning to have enough votes to get their guy elected President…
Because Republicans count Democrats NOT voting so they can get their people elected to actually BE IN Congress and State and Local offices….
The REALITY is the fear and hardcore campaigning Republican’s do works….
The ‘going high’ of Democrats does NOT get out the vote….
And this is why the media can push all they want….
But in the end?
It’s who actually comes out and cast’s their ballot in a democracy…
It’;s THAT simple….
And Republicans ‘get it.’ and don’t need the protests….
They just need the count…
