Across the South, 48 percent would vote for GOP candidates if the midterm election were held today, compared with 43 who would support Democrats. (The states polled include: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.) Nationally, by contrast, 49 percent of voters would vote for a Democratic candidate, compared with 42 percent who would vote for a Republican. In three of the states surveyed — Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee — a majority or a near majority of voters said they would vote for a Republican congressional candidate over a Democratic candidate (The numbers were 55 percent of voters in Alabama, 51 percent in Mississippi and 50 percent in Tennessee.) Trump won all three states overwhelmingly in 2016.

HMM....
almost like nbc is confused....

You could be right.
Just saw Trump's approval rating is at 48% and the stated cause is the economy.

My point is that its unwise to extrapolate a Red wave from the data. Its appearing to be unlikely that the Republicans can hold the House and its quite possible they could lose control of the Senate. One reason some of the Republicans are not looking too good in the mid-terms is because the tide is turning against Rino's.

The real problem is, that just as in any election, its all about turnout. The Republican "core" can be counted upon to turnout regardless. To overcome that, the Dems have to maximize their turnout and in order to do that, they have to galvanize their base to action and I"m seeing quite a bit of enthusiasm in the Democrat camp and particularly for the younger Democrat candidates who hit on the social justice issues and socialist economic policies.


I agree with you turnout is what matters. Maybe I am wrong, but I have to think this Kavanaugh stuff will drop some dem turnout. I would like to think there are at least a percent or two of democrats who are smart enough and disgusted enough about this obvious Destroy Kavanaugh at all costs campaign to stay at home, and enough independents disgusted enough about it to go out and vote.

I don't see a "WAVE" in either direction happening.

I expect it to be close, because honestly most people voting are dug into one side or the other.

I expect things to actually stay pretty close to the same on the senate, and the repubs advantage in the house being reduced, but them still keeping a small margin if I had to predict.

I don't personally know a single Democrat who's abandoned the party. I can't say the same about Republicans.


I know of no fewer than 6 members on this site who I have historically butted heads with over politics who have fled the Democrats over the past week's shenanigans. Don't know a single GOP voter who has bailed, though...


Our neighbors hate Trump, but he admitted to me yesterday that he'll be forced to vote Republican because the Democrats have become extremists.


That's not even the half of it... I'm under no false pretenses that the majority of those hundreds of thousands (if not millions) who are #WalkingAway from the Democrats will turn and vote for Republicans. Many won't, but they're removing their votes and support from the vile Democrat party, which is an outstanding victory for common sense in this country at a time where we seem to need it the most.


Don't believe for a second that the Democrats won't cheat on a massive scale.
We've now seen, out in the open, the depths they are prepared to sink to in order to gain power.
It makes massive voter fraud accusations far more believable.
That Democrats continue to resist even an investigation into voter fraud speaks volumes.


Are you hedging your bet before the "red wave" makes a splash?

Your thoughts pretty much match mine.

Turn out is the key and the Dems always have a problem "thrilling" the base in off-year elections. Where I live its become a concern because the Dem Media has hyped "Beto" O'Rourke who's running against Senator Ted Cruz for the Senate seat. Beto has a strong Hispanic following and he's "young" and Soros funded. If they can get the Hispanics out to vote, Beto might take it except for one small problem............he doesn't campaign very well and he's got a criminal background, he's handsome but not very smart AND, he's hot actually NOT "Hispanic"! He just adopted the nickname "Beto" to fool the unsuspecting.

The other problem Beto has is that all reports to the contrary, it appears the Hispanics in Texas are getting more conservative by the minute all though the only reason I can see for that is because so many are independent business owners and ex-military.

Its going to be interesting.

I still see a blue tide. I see it as a response to Trump and people getting excited about some individual candidates. Democrats didn't get excited about Hillary.

But I see this as a lot of anti establishment Democrats. More progressive, like that woman in New York and several people inspired by Bernie Sanders. That's kinda what you want anyway. We're all sick of establishment democrats and establishment republicans.

Who wants more Nancy Pelosi's or Ted Cruzes? We've had enough.

Sneaky and Underhanded are two additional negatives working against Demon crats. Take a look at what they tried to do to Brett Kavanaugh, hoping no one would find out.

REF: twitter.com...


That is worthy of a thread in and of itself!

I dont think NBC is a very good source for poll data. For example...

Flake says Kavanaugh "can't be on the court". I think everyone is pretty clear that the FBI's 7th screening of BK was just a further stall to run the clock down on a BK alternative.
That's why they are wrapping it up.
I don't think there will be a vote - McConnell doesn't have the numbers... so they'll nominate someone else and keep Kavanaugh for a different time - should that arise.

There's not gonna be a blue wave, there never was. That was just CNN talk, relying on historical tendencies of the party of the sitting president losing seats.

Even if there was a chance for the Republicans to lose both houses, they absolutely killed it with the retard show they put on over Kavanaugh.

My prediction is the Republicans keep the Senate and mabey even gain a seat or 2. The house im not so sure about. I think worse case scenario they lose a few seats but still keep the majority. Slightly.

Prior to the 2016 election, I was a conservative Democrat. Still registered as one. But the party completely abandoned me and others. So I left it as well. I'm utterly disgusted at what it's become. I'm still puzzled by any former Bernie supporters (not me), who are still Dems. That just boggles my mind.

Can't wait to surf that red wave in November.

Wrapping it up because there is NOTHING to investigate! LOL....

When I was watching the live stream of the Kav hearing I was stunned at the overwhelming support for him in the comments. Easily 70%pro Kav, maybe higher.

Sometimes Democrats look like the instrument of a foreign organization with an agenda against US.



Unfortunately for the republic, on the face of it, that shoe fits pretty well right now.
Hopefully people will get tired of this lunatic fringe politics (both left and right) and we will come back to the center and look out for everyone.
