I still think the GOP will lose their majority in the House, mainly because holding their majority would fly in the face of history (also doesn’t hurt that mainstream press sites like CNN, WaPo, and the NYT are doing their best to promote a Democrat victory; there has been almost no impartiality by Democrat big hitters since Trump took office).
I also think that a Democrat House only (that is, provided the Senate stays Republican) means the Democrats will give it all back, and more, in 2020 - but that’s a different thread.
Opinion pieces like this one are still fun to read, though.
Don’t look now, but it’s all happening again. Nate Silver says Democrats have a greater than 80 percent chance of winning the House. The Cook Political Report says Democrats will win the House by 40 seats. All the experts say it’s over: Democrats will win. I’ll go out on a limb and disagree again.
I see Andrew Gillum, Florida’s Democratic candidate for governor, holding a rally with Bernie Sanders, and the place is empty. Barack Obama could not fill a high school gym in Milwaukee. I saw Joe Biden and Obama at separate events here in Las Vegas playing to small crowds. Meanwhile, I was opening speaker for President Trump’s event in September at the Las Vegas Convention Center — with thousands waiting in line for hours.
Does that sound like the GOP is losing 40 seats? Dream on, delusional Democrats.
