Republicans are in panic mode as Democrats are flooded with a diverse slate of candidates due to Donald Trump’s toxic swamp.
First Read: “Trump’s 39% job rating is a screaming alarm bell for the Republican Party when you think about the midterms, which are still more than 500 days away. To put Trump’s 39% into perspective, George W. Bush didn’t reach that level in the NBC/WSJ poll until October 2005, so after the Social Security debacle, after the Iraq war turned south, and after Hurricane Katrina. And the GOP lost the House and Senate the following year. And Barack Obama NEVER reached 39% in our poll — his lowest approval rating was 40% in September 2014, right before Democrats lost the Senate (after losing the House in 2010).”
Trumpcare is doing serious damage to the Republicans. According to a NBC/WSJ poll, “48% say the health-care legislation that was recently passed by the House and supported by President Trump is a bad idea, versus 23% who call it a good idea. That 25-point gap between good idea and bad idea is larger than the NBC/WSJ poll ever found for Barack Obama’s health-care plan.”
The same poll shows that 78% want an independent commission or special prosecutor to take over the Russia probe. The Republicans, in the House and Senate, as well as Donald Trump, are obstructing the investigation.
It took 100 + days for Donald Trump to completely wreck the Republican Party. I doubt they will recover from the nightmare for a long time. Pundits are warning that there is a strong chance Democrats will regain control of the House in the 2018 midterm elections due in large part to Donald Trump toxic policies and his authoritarian tendencies.
