WaPo Casts Doubt on Democratic Prospects in 2018 Midterms

Dems’ generic polling lead has evaporated, casting doubt on so-called “blue wave”

A columnist for the Washington Post has warned Democrats not to be overconfident about the prospect of a wave election carrying them to control of Congress, suggesting most waves “break before they reach the shore.”

“Conditions look particularly good for taking back the House. Off-year elections in a president’s first term nearly always cost his party some seats, and President Trump’s historically low approval ratings are an especially heavy weight for Republicans,” wrote Karen Tumulty. “The fact that so many GOP incumbents are in a rush to retire is no mere coincidence.”

“So what could go wrong for Democrats in 2018? Plenty, actually.”

They seem to be bankrupt in so many ways.

Actually President Trump ratings are up. I guess it depends on what poll you look at.
