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.

The question of how over 900 people came to kill themselves in the South American jungle animated the writing of Cult City: Jim Jones, Harvey Milk, and 10 Days That Shook San Francisco. But in trying to solve that puzzle another puzzle, well, puzzled. How did the victims go from “religious zealots” in the first draft of history to left-wing idealists in subsequent revisions? The drive to report the story first instead of right led to errors. Walter Cronkite labeled Peoples Temple as “fascist,” a New York Times article described Jim Jones’s preaching as “fundamentalist Christianity,” and the Associated Press

Is Beto Burnout setting in? The

FORT WORTH Beto Burnout might be setting in. But not on stage. A wide-awake Democratic U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke rallied a three-fourths-full Ridglea Theater crowd early Saturday morning, emphasizing four words: “We vote on Monday.” On the eve of early voting in his 21-month, $61 million campaign for U.S. Senate, O’Rourke barely even alluded to incumbent Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz but campaigned hard against his familar targets: Texas voters’ cynicism and disillusionment. As national publications began speculating on a Beto 2020 presidential campaign — one headline reads “Beto O’Rourke Isn’t Running for Senate Anymore” —

Elizabeth Warren wants to be Native American. Robert Francis O’Rourke wants to be Latino. But they aren’t. And they’re being hoist on the left’s own petard. I’m a fan of cultural appropriation. I think it’s actually healthy for the dominant society to incorporate some aspects of other cultures. This makes us more diverse, more interesting, and more tolerant. But many on the left strongly disagree with me on this. They hate themselves for loving yoga, and don’t think two white women should be able to own a burrito cart in Portland. They are adamant about it.

In recent months, some reporters who cover the Trump White House have received phone calls from the last person they would expect: Hillary Clinton. The 2016 Democratic nominee has been rethinking her relationship with the press, among the many things she has been turning over—and over—in her head, acknowledging that her grouchy relationship with journalists was a problem. Now, she’s curious about the reporters covering Trump and has been putting out the occasional feeler.

Texas Democratic Rep.

The remarks came during a discussion about President Donald Trump’s reaction to the disappearance of The Washington Post contributor and political activist.“Let me get to the point that I think is most disturbing right now.

Attention, journalists of America: Time is running out! You have under three weeks left to publish your last batch of over-the-top pre-election puff pieces on Texas Democrat/cross-country liberal sensation/wing-and-a-prayer Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke! It is here that we must face the difficult truth: Barring a GOP-related disaster of some sort, O’Rourke — he of that ineffable “cool factor” and “special sauce,” at least according to easily impressed columnists at the Washington Post — is likely to lose big. According to the latest polls, Senator Ted Cruz leads him by anywhere between seven and nine points.

Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D) seems headed for a loss against Ted Cruz in the Texas Senate race. A new Quinnipiac Poll has the Democrats’ latest love interest down 54 to 45 percent. The current Real Clear Politics average puts Cruz ahead by 6.6 percent. Beto has perhaps a 20 percent chance of victory a month from now. Texas again seems destined to disappoint the establishment media, which published scores of fawning love letters to #ElectoralJesus and his second coming of LBJ-style liberalism in the Lone Star State.(Snip for tweets)Why the shock?

‘Gosnell,’ Like Its Namesake,

“Gosnell” is a difficult film to watch, not because of what appears on the screen—it’s rated PG-13—but because of what is left to the viewer’s imagination. This might explain why the theater where I caught the film Friday was mostly empty. But other explanations are worth considering. Kermit Gosnell, who was convicted of murder following a two-month trial in 2013, is currently serving a life sentence in prison with no possibility of parole. He was an abortion doctor based in Philadelphia, where state law prohibits the procedure beginning at 24 weeks gestational age.

Despite my best efforts, I know exactly what Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke’s post-punk indie band from the mid-’90s sounds like (not as bad as you’d think!). At the same time, I don’t know much about Senate candidate Josh Hawley, who is 38 years old (meaning, around eight years younger than “rising star” Beto), the attorney general of Missouri, and the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate. In fact, Hawley’s name recognition outside of his state is probably negligible. When his name does come up in national political coverage, it’s mostly as a tack-on in pieces accessing opponent Claire McCaskill’s

Feuds are pointless tragedies carried out for political, religious, or personal honor, thrust upon generation after generation, father to son (seldom mother to daughter, let us note). There are the Montagues and Capulets, and there are the Hatfields and McCoys: Shakespeare’s time in fair Verona, and post–Civil War in the verdant Appalachian Mountains. The meandering Tug Fork forms part of the West Virginia–Kentucky border in the Tug River Valley, an especially remote mountainous region. Real-life feuds, as opposed to those generated in the myriad minds of Shakespeare and company, are fueled by complex cultural and economic pressures.

TAPACHULA, MEXICO -- A growing caravan of roughly 7,000 Central American immigrants continued its trek toward the United States on Sunday, blowing past Mexican police and immigration officials. The group, which has swelled in size in recent days, set out before dawn on the only road out of the small Mexican border town of Ciudad Hidalgo. It arrived in the afternoon in the city of Tapachula, more than 20 miles away. The migrants, nearly all from the poor and violent nation of Honduras, posed a growing political and humanitarian calamity for Mexico,

Suddenly, after two years of indulging Clinton’s blame games and pity parties, lefty pundits say she’s talking too much, she’s stuck in the past, she had her chance and she blew it. Vanity Fair, declaring that she “still hasn’t learned the lessons of #MeToo,” is furious that Clinton said her husband’s Oval Office dalliance with Monica Lewinsky was not an abuse of power

In a recent statement, the animal advocate organization explains that dairy milk has been the drink of choice for supremacists because "the dairy industry inflicts extreme violence on other living beings."

Every big U.S. election is interesting, but the coming midterms are fascinating for a reason most commentators forget to mention: The Democrats have no issues. The economy is booming and America’s international position is strong.
