  • US Midterm Elections 2018

    We're just over a month away from the US midterms, so we should have a discussion thread about it, especially in light of recent polls suggesting a significant shift in light of the Kavanaugh circus:

    Brett Kavanaugh Could Rescue Donald Trump, Republicans in Midterm Elections, Polls Suggest

    Republicans may vigorously oppose the left and the Me Too movement’s efforts to prevent the confirmation of President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, but the debate has brought a surprising silver lining.

    GOP supporters backing Kavanaugh as he faces sexual assault allegations from three women are also growing more enthusiastic about going to the polls, a good sign for Republicans ahead of the November midterm elections that Democrats previously appeared to have an edge on, various poll show.

    "The Kavanaugh debate has dropped a political grenade into the middle of an electorate that had been largely locked in Democrats' favor for the past six months," Josh Holmes, a former top aide to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, told Axios on Thursday.

      Democrats screwed up royally, not just for their grandstanding but also because their Red State Senators are voting no.

      That means Democratic Senate seats in Alabama, North Dakota, Montana, Indiana, Florida and potentially West Virginia are going to go to the Republicans who will just nominate Kavanaugh again after January.

        I think Kav will get through the first time round. Unless some GOP senators vote against it's a done deal.

          You are giving this way to much credit. The whole Kavanaugh fiasco will disappear like it did Clarence Thomas.
