“With the midterms elections now less than a year away, Republicans have a double-digit lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that, if the elections for Congress were held today, 51% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for the Republican candidate, while 38% would vote for the Democrat. Just three percent (3%) would vote for some other candidate, but another eight percent (8%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

In January 2018, before voters handed Democrats their first House majority in eight years, Democrats held an eight-point advantage (45% to 37%) in the generic ballot question. That margin narrowed as the November 2018 midterms neared, and was a statistical dead heat – Republicans 46%, Democrats 45% – in the final poll before Democrats won a slim House majority while Republicans maintained control of the Senate.”

“The 13-point edge for Republicans in the latest poll is larger than Democrats enjoyed at any time during the 2018 midterm campaign, due both to greater GOP partisan intensity and a wide advantage among independents. While 89% of Republican voters say they would vote for their own party’s candidate, only 77% of Democrats would vote for the Democratic candidate. Among voters not affiliated with either major party, 48% would vote Republican and 26% would vote Democrats, with another 17% undecided.” Rassmussen

    I remember when Obamacare destroyed them. There’s like 10 Obamacare style events this time they created and more on the way. Getting an endorsement from Obama during his second mid term was basically fratricide. This time it will be a devastating precision Raptor strike.

    Get ready for the show to begin…

    “If the election were held tomorrow.”
    Small problem – it’s not held tomorrow.
    The American voters have the memory of an ant.

    Speaking of Obama: Some issues refuse to die. Benghazi -Benghazi-Benghazi

    Re-published today for some reason on another blog – Where was Barry Soetoro between 16:00 and 22:00 on Sept 11, 2012?

      If I recall, the records were sealed for 5 years. It appears however it’s forever. There are logs of every movement of the President. Even going to the bathroom yet we still can’t get info on 5 hours getting on 10 years ago.
