    I remember when Bush ran for his second term....I was certain the Dems would win based on the Nation's sentiment at the time for Bush on both sides of the aisle due to the war in Iraq and body count....

    BUT I was way wrong.....

    So, I don't put much faith in the Democratic party to win....no matter the so called wave....

    the sentiment may be there in the nation for a change in the presidency....but many many people will simply not go out and vote, unless they have a damn good reason to support a specific beloved platform....

    And I just don't see one.... :(

    but this is not a presidential election cycle. Normally the winner of the potus has coattails. Trump had none, and actually the gop lost seats. Which is telling about how bad Hillary was, and she probably wins unless Comey lays the November surprise.

    The dems are defending senate seats in red state, which they won in 2012 ... on Obama's coattails. Despite any "blue wave" they'll have mucho trouble holding them, esp because Trump is very popular in rural red and white states.

    The gop in not looking nearly as good in some House races. They are not going to lose many, if any, dem House seats because Trump is just as polarizing in a bad way as in a good way. And, the gop is not only defending seats in districts Hillary won, but also Trump is riging up UUUUUGE negatative numbers with gopers in places that are not batshit crazy

    But yeah for a dem to win in a really RED state race, the gop has to run a nut.

    That election was rigged. Totally rigged. Alabama is right next to Mexico. At least two million illegal Mexicans voted in that election. Some people have said the Mexicans were bused in by George Soros.

    I think it violates to TOS to speculate on the existence or identity of sock accounts...but I'll bet you and I have the same guess. ;)

    We Patriots need to shock them again, they are expecting a BLUE WAVE, we need to make sure this midterm creates a RED WAVE. We are strong and getting stronger. Make a difference, show them we will not sit back and accept politics as usual.
