Republicans just got awful news about upcoming midterm elections

This November will be a referendum on Donald Trump’s so-called leadership.  If recent special elections in purple and super-red areas are any indication,  the verdict is bad for the Republican Party and its Criminal-in-Chief.


Now, a new set of polls from Public Policy Polling show Democrats in five battleground states coming out way ahead of their Republican opponents, in some cases by almost 20 points. 

Of the issues topping voters’ list of concerns, healthcare comes out on top — an important note for Democrats running in the upcoming midterm elections. 

Meanwhile, Trump and his Republican Party have bent over backward to try to repeal Obamacare.  They succeeded in repealing the mandate that helped fund the Affordable Care Act for those who can’t pay into it.

In Alabama, where Trump won by 30 points, Democrat Doug Jones beat accused pedophile Roy Moore for a Senate seat.  In Pennsylvania’s super-red 18th district, where Trump won by 20 points, Democrat Conor Lamb just beat Republican Rick Saccone.

Both ran on the vital importance of social programs like Obamacare, Social Security and Medicare to average Americans. They also highlighted the need for coalition-building with labor unions.  Another important feature of their campaigns is that they did not try to appeal to national Democrats, but targeted local values and concerns that transcended traditional party lines.

By keeping campaigns local and targeting economic issues, the Democrats currently pulling ahead have a chance to maintain their leads through Election Day, Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

Let’s hold our candidates’ feet to the fire to employ the winning game plan executed by special election Democrats this year. Furthermore, let’s go after every district, not just blue or purple ones.
