Here is one of my favorite answers,

Who’s going to win the House?
Definitely the Democrats.
Or the Republicans.
Definitely one of those.

I live in Kentucky so I had to look up the polls. And as usual they obviously aren't accurate. They would call they would call the one on the bottom a outlier. But then look at who took it .

The moral to the story is, never trust the polls

Vote Republican... not because they are great but the leftest are crazy, want to tax the shIt out of the working class, and take my property.

It must really kill the D's now that the economy is taking off and we are creating fair trade.

As time passes, the democrat party will garner the name "Party of losers" ... it will become a household name with negative connotations. Same as 'Koolaid', Zombie or Poser.

I find it amazing that six years ago when Obama won reelection, so many people were saying that the Republican Party was dead.
Only took four more years of Obama policies to swing it all back republican.

The Dems have lost the first few rounds but don't count them out.
Especially as the young people head to the polls.
Nanny state policy appeals to them.

I don't fall for the false sense of fairness that strikes people whenever their party of preference is losing.

Democrats have clearly lost their god damned minds. There is NO way around it. The last few years the left and the liberal democrats who rile them up have completely lost touch with reality. Hypocrisy and cognitive dissonance have become a regular occurrence for the sake of attempting to win short-term hollow victories on social media. Democrats think they can use any ethnic group they want as a poker chip; it is god damn disgusting and racist. The people who follow them actually think they're doing everyone a favor by being offended on behalf of other cultures that they have come up with asinine terms of division like "cultural appropriation".

They want to convince me that taking more of my paycheck is a patriotic thing to do when they continually prove how inept government is at handling my money. They believe the government has rights, and are too stupid to know the difference between powers and rights. They are constantly trying to reinterpret what our rights are and are not. They have gone from merely attacking the 2nd Amendment to outright assaulting free speech on college campuses, and the deplatforming of conservative voices from internet 'town square' services like the various social media and internet payments platforms.

The Russian collusion bull# you continue to cling on to. What you've done to Brett Kavanaugh for the sake of scoring political goals. Your continued attacks on an innocent man for political purposes. Your lying-ass media giants who simply move on from one piece of BS to another without a moments pause for the consequences of their actions. Embracing socialism as though it were merely a government service method. You're idiots for thinking it is equivalent to charity; only a total moron would believe that an ideology that has killed so many through starvation and abject poverty would be synonymous with charity. Your support for open borders and illegal immigration to the detriment of the poorest communities of American citizens. Those same communities are made up of the minorities you exploit for votes.

Democrats: You have done a fantastic job of supporting some fantastically un-American # lately. I'm done with it and with you. It is my hope that you lose hard because you obviously didn't freakin' get it the first time.

It mind boggles me why anyone would vote for a Democrat. They are against me keeping my crumbs, want more regulation in your life and.business. against keeping illegal aliens out of our country..Quite happy with the abysmal Obama economy.. call me misogynist, deplorable. Plus their latest SCOTUS fiasco. Did I miss anything?

nanny state appeals to people that don't have real jobs. Once they get a job, work their butts off. They want to keep their stuff, they don't want someone who isn't working to have the same thing that they have.

THey will mouth the liberal stuff to stay cool but vote for the lessons that life taught them

They’re trying their hardest to wrestle the title away from the Libertarians who seem hell bent on never even being “also rans”... I never imagined we’d really get to the point a third party would be viable again but damned if we ain’t almost there...

Historically speaking (actually hysterical for some), 2018 is the most important mid-term election in history.

Like a pinball machine on tilt.

"Your vote COUNTS !!"

Look at you being part of the problem!

I don't vote by party. That's ridiculous. I research all candidates, and vote for the ones who I feel have our best interests in mind.

How is being informed enough to know that there is not a single democrat that wants to help married white straight men and voting against them because they don’t do a single thing in my best interest being part of the problem...

Go ahead... tell me one... just one that has my best interest at heart... I’ll wait... won’t hold my breath... but I’ll wait...
