About "Democrat Momentum"
Democrats have had it rough for quite a few years. Since 2008, they lost the House, Senate and Presidency, along with numerous governorships and local party elections. Since the rise of President Trump, one they thought was an easy foe to dominate, five special elections all went toward Republicans. That appeared to change last Tuesday when gubernatorial elections went Democrat in New Jersey and Virginia.
At least that’s what the headlines have been eager to report. There is a seeming glee in the media that there is a growing backlash (finally) against Donald Trump and the republican majority. But a recent Politico poll shows 82% of Trump voters would still support him if given another chance. In comparison, 78% of Clinton voters still show their support of Hillary.
We are one, long year away from the midterms, extempers.
