Democrats. Gotta love 'em.
After going to defcon 5 in September over Kavanaugh some new polling data is in. Turns out Americans don’t much like the way Democrats behaved.
Senate seems to be a lock for the GOP and many House races are now polling such that neither candidate has 50% of the vote. Could go either way on Nov. 6. Prior to Kavanaugh the Senate was in jeopardy and the Democrats had the House locked down. No longer reflected in the polls.
So what to write if you’re a Democrat media person? Channelling Emily Litella (old SNL) seems to be popular. Here’s NYT’s David Leonhardt’s impersonation.
The fight over Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation appears to have nationalized the campaign, causing some Trump-skeptical Republican voters to return to the fold. That’s why Democrats and progressive activists need to change the subject away from divisive cultural debates and back to pocketbook issues.
“Never mind,” says Emil…I mean Leonhardt. Yeah, after manufacturing a deeply divisive cultural “debate,” throwing unending mud, and then insisting that only the FBI can sort it out the Democrats don’t poll well. Whoda thunk.
I still think the House is lost to the GOP, but they’ll keep their Senate majority. Even so, the old stranglehold the Democrat media has on Americans is dying a slow death under President Trump. Maybe, just maybe, their identity politics is on the wane, too. Guy can hope.
