    The trouble is that the polls are remarkably similar. They include Fox News which is part of state run media. They are all bad for Trump. They show that Republicans are appealing to 30% of voters.

    Also interesting are the polls in the 2017 races so far. In the Virginia Governor's race, the average had the Democrat up by 3.9. He won by 8.9. In Alabama the average has Moore up by 2 points. Jones won by 2. The polls so far have underestimated the Democrat vote.

    The trouble is that Fox News is a part of state run media. Their generic poll has Democrats up by 15. The NBC/WSJ poll has the same number. I do believe the Democrats are ahead in the generic ballot and the odds are better than 50-50 Democrats will take over the House.

    The 2016 Presidential race was unlike any other. Both Trump and Clinton were extremely unpopular. It was a close race. Had Clinton got 1.5% more in every state, Clinton would have won. Ultimately voters held their nose and voted for somebody. If None of the Above was available and it meant we would have to start over and Clinton and Trump could not run, it would have won in a landslide. Nobody told anyone to shove anything.

    I'm sure people like you thought that in 2006 and 2008.

    The polls were off by one point last November...

    ...there's no electoral college to save GOP Congressmen in 2018.

    There's no campaign basis to save Democrat Congressmen in 2018.
