The prognostications are starting to come in about the 2018 mid-term elections and they may become Trump’s nightmare. If there was anything that should cause the loss of sleep it is the thought that control of Congress would devolve to the Democrat Party. If you are curious, here are some early thoughts on where President Trump and the Republicans stand at the present moment.
As Written and Reported By Mike Allen for Axios:
Trump’s day of reckoning … The one thing that could dramatically diminish President Trump’s chances of avoiding impeachment and chalking up legislative wins is Democrats winning the House.
- And, thanks to series of recent developments, Trump knows this no longer just seems plausible, but probable.
- Hill sources tell us that a House Democratic takeover is now likely.
- One strategist close to Republican leaders believes that a loss of the House is “baked in,” and said top Republicans don’t see a way to avoid it.
- It would take a flip of 24 seats for Dems to take over. The average loss for the president’s party in his first midterm is about 32 seats, and we’re hearing forecasts of 40+ losses.
