I want to emphasize this has nothing to do with us.
Instead, the 2018 midterm elections are going to be a straight up vote on the True Cons agenda pursued by Paul Ryan in the House of Representatives: healthcare reform, tax reform, banking reform, DACA amnesty, the Charlottesville resolution, Russia sanctions, Iran warmongering, etc.
“Republican strategists have turned decidedly pessimistic about their prospects for the 2018 midterm elections.
Prominent Republicans are now saying privately that Democrats are virtually certain to win control of the House of Representatives.
As one senior Republican on Capitol Hill told ABC News, “If the election were held today, the House would be gone. Fortunately, the election is not today.”
Another prominent Republican strategist working on the midterm elections went further, telling ABC News point-blank that Republicans will lose the House and that this prospect unlikely to change. …”
House Republicans voted to unanimously condemn the Alt-Right.
Let’s be clear: the Republican majority in the House has been pushing the same old 1980s Reaganite conservatism. It hasn’t pushed an Alt-Right agenda. It hasn’t even pushed the MAGA agenda. From the moment the dust settled after the 2016 election, the Alt-Right was elbowed out of power by mainstream conservatives and the same was true of Bannonism. Donald Trump, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell have presided over what has essentially been George W. Bush’s third term.
It’s not difficult to see why the Republicans are about to be hurled from power. It is because they are fundamentally incapable of listening to anyone but big donors, multinational corporations and Jewish interests. That’s who has wielded the power within the party. They have pursued their same familiar conservative agenda which voters have rejected at the polls time and again.
The GOP seems incapable of passing legislation that doesn’t have like a 20% or 25% approval rating. They are going to continue losing until they stop doing this.
