    Republican Senators up for reelection in 2020 are trailing their democratic competitors in fundraising and are also underwater in their approval ratings. The Trump affect is in full swing. He's dragging them down along with his own sinking ship.

    Trump devotees will, of course, ignore these signs, just like they did leading up to the 2018 midterms when they lost 40 seats in the House and seven governorships. They'll pretend Trump's high level of disapproval among the American people mean nothing and will foolishly claim polls only tell the truth when they show him doing well. They will continue to do all of this to the detriment of their own party and will be left in shock and awe on election night when they get swept across the board should things not drastically change over the next year. If a radical extreme leftist like Warren or Sanders ends up being president you have only yourselves to blame.

    I said back in 2016 when Trump got the nomination he would be a long term liability for the GOP and it's playing out exactly as I expected it would.

    Key incumbents are losing the money battle as 2020's top Senate races heat up

    LOL...

    Good luck with this... The fund raising just started for those races.

    And the democrats have doomed themselves with endless investigations and false accusations..

    No it didn't and thanks for being the first Trump Tard to prove my point. I'm sure your brethren will be along soon to make fools out of themselves as well.

    Nonsense. If that happens it will be because of our broken education system and a corrupt media.

    I understand you must cling to some thread of hope as your reality seems bleak for at least another 5+ years. I admit I don't actually feel your misery but can hear it in your words and know that I would much rather you not be suffering. Still, as the old Chinese proverb goes ... better you than me. :D

    This far out, fundraising is as accurate a metric as polls.

    The GOP seems to be doing ok. Wins in Connecticut, Minnesota, New Hampshire NC and recently Louisiana.

    Could be the people are not buying what the demoquacks are spewing is my guess.

    Our corrupt media peddles tin foil hat conspiracies, political hate, half truths and lies.

    Our broken education system failed to teach civics to our children so they are growing up whole heartedly believing the propaganda that our trash media peddles 24/7

    It's also interesting that the gop House fundraising is not doing so good. Yet Trump is burying the dems in fundraising for his job.
