NO BLUE WAVE? Senate Slipping Away From Democrats, House Now In Play For GOP

The enthusiasm gap has shifted in favor of Republicans in recent weeks and it’s still going. The GOP is expected to hold the Senate and even add a few seats. And now, it looks as though the House is also in play.

The Daily Wire reports:

Senate Slipping Away, House Now Up In Air As Republican Enthusiasm Surges

Famed election prognosticator Nate Silver puts the odds of the Democrats taking over the House of Representatives at 84.6%.

Wait, you ask if this is the same Nate Silver who puts the odds of Hillary Clinton winning the White House at 71.4%?

Yes, yes it is.

So, one place you can not take that prediction is the bank.

Democrats have been solidly in the lead in generic polls that measure which party, Democrat or Republican, people say they’re going to vote for on November 6. But like Silver, those polls are often wrong. And the double-digit margin has suddenly closed as Election Day nears, with Democrats holding just a 3 or 4 point lead with less than two weeks to go.

The Associated Press, as liberal a news outlet as you’ll find out there, is now getting worried.

“In the closing stretch of the 2018 campaign, the question is no longer the size of the Democratic wave. It’s whether there will be a wave at all,” the AP writes.

If Democrats lose both the House and Senate, prepare for a replay of the day after the 2016 election. The left will go absolutely bonkers.
