Nikitas3.com is predicting that the 2018 mid-term elections for the US House of Representatives are going to be another big blow to the Democrat party.
Many Democrats, liberals and leftists are excited and energized that president Trump is allegedly unpopular and are planning to challenge Republicans in 2018 with every tool available and imaginable. They are talking about winning 24 seats from Republicans in order to win back majority control of the House.
It’s not going to happen. They may very well win zero seats, and even could lose seats. We already have seen a preview of what to expect. Democrats failed to win any of the four ‘special’ congressional elections since Trump was elected. Democrats also lost the mayoral race in Omaha, Nebraska.
In the most recent case in Georgia, the Democrat candidate named Jon Ossoff poured more money and Hollywood star power into his congressional race than any such House election ever before. And he still lost, just as Nikitas3.com knew he would.
In the 19th congressional district in New York state we have a microcosm of what to expect in 2018. This district is southeast of the state capital of Albany and is pretty conservative. The seat was held for six years by popular ex-military Republican Chris Gibson, who term-limited himself.
Now 19th district Republican congressman John Faso, elected for the first time in November 2016, already is facing eight(!) declared Democrat challengers for a 2018 race that is still 16 months away. Nikitas3.com predicts that more Democrats will join the fray and that Faso will win.
A casual observer might think that all of these candidates are a sign of confidence and vitality, but it really is a sign of chaos that is going to harm Democrats.
In short dozens of left-wing screwballs from New York to California and from North Dakota to Texas are going to run for Congress in 2018 thinking that they only need to loudly oppose Trump to win. But most or all of them are going to get a very rude awakening.
Not only are they going to cause chaos with their sheer numbers and bizarre behavior, but they are going to split the vote, shred the platform and divide up the campaign contributions, leading to a further fracturing of the Democrat party.
In the recent ‘special’ US House election in Montana the Democrat candidate was a folk singer with thousands of dollars in unpaid back taxes who was known for entertaining at a nudist camp. He lost his bid against Republican businessman Greg Gianforte, who had assaulted an obnoxious reporter just days before the election. Nikitas3.com believes that the assault actually helped Gianforte to win by a bigger margin than he otherwise would have.
Don’t you think that Democrats could have come up with a better candidate out of a state with more than 1 million people? Particularly at this time when Democrats claim that Republicans are vulnerable because of president Trump?
Yes, but they couldn’t. This is very telling. In other words Democrats once again are failing to read the mood of the American electorate. That is why they are in such a weak state today as outlined further down in this commentary.
How about psychic Kim Weaver who is planning to run in Iowa in 2018 against long-time and popular Republican incumbent congressman Steve King. She is described like this by the Des Moines Register:
Known as “Kimberanne” — a portmanteau of her first and middle names — and “the Spirit Weaver,” Weaver charged customers as much as $3.99 per minute for readings online and over the phone and dispensed advice on matters ranging from romance to careers to real estate.
In one recording obtained by the Register, Weaver performed a tarot card reading to reassure a distraught woman that her missing husband was not dead.
Indeed the kooks can take over an election by simply getting enough other kooks to vote for them in the primaries. That will produce big trouble for the Democrats in the general elections in 2018 and 2020.
This shows that Trump is going to energize many of the wrong kind of people to run, with the wrong tactics, with dire consequences for the Democrat party.
Democrats also are continuing to believe polls that show president Trump to be very unpopular. These are the same polls that predicted that Hillary Clinton was going to win in a landslide, but most Democrats don’t seem to make the connection. They continue to believe only what suits them.
It gets worse. Black voters turned to president Trump in stronger numbers than expected but that is just part of the problem for Democrats going forward. The much bigger problem is this:
The racist hatred that the media, black groups and the far-left Democrat party have stirred up among blacks against whites is actually backfiring and doing great harm to the Democrat party itself.
This is happening since blacks no longer are turning out in large numbers to vote for white Democrats either. This is a big part of the reason that Hillary Clinton lost the election in states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Ohio, where urban blacks did not turn out for her in anywhere near the numbers expected.
This is a major and growing problem for the Democrats, and a problem of their own making. Remember that blacks and whites are now competing for power within the Democrat party, and that increasing numbers of blacks now openly detest white people, even within the Democrat party.
Look at this from The Daily Caller about the recent ‘special’ congressional election in Georgia where the white male Democrat Jon Ossoff lost despite record spending:
Much of the result can be accounted for by the Democrats’ inability to encourage turnout in traditional strongholds despite record breaking campaign contributions pouring in from out of state.
The Pleasantdale Road Precinct, which is the only majority black precinct in the part of the district, is one such stronghold. The precinct averages 57 percent turnout among registered voters but only 34 percent of voters turned out in the Ossoff race.
This situation is a stark reality for the Democrats but they don’t even know it yet since they are in such a state of chaos over so many other issues.
On the other hand, much of the Republican Establishment worked against Trump, including the Bush family, and Trump still won the election with 57% of the electoral vote, which is in effect a “landslide”.
Now here are the shocking numbers about how much power the Democrats have lost since Obama was first elected. Republicans now control:
*the White House and the enormous power that goes with it, including the power to appoint Supreme Court justices and federal judges, which will re-make American jurisprudence for decades to come. If one of the two elderly liberal Supreme Court justices Stephen Breyer or Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies or retires while Trump is in office, it will be game over for liberals for the next 30 years;
*the US Senate, with 51 Republican senators out of 100 (certainly 52 when the Sessions seat is filled). That number even could go to 53 since one Democrat may switch parties. This gives Republicans majority control of the Senate again, which they were expected to lose in the recent election. This means that Trump will generally get all of the legislation that he wants and the appointments that he wants, including the Supreme Court.
*the US House of Representative with 241 Republicans to 194 Democrats, a big GOP majority that will be very difficult for Democrat to overcome.
*Republicans hold 33 out of 50 governorships. Republican governors rule almost all of the thriving and growing American states, and also many once-liberal states like Wisconsin and Michigan. Even ultra-liberal Vermont just elected a Republican governor by a whopping 9 points.
*Republicans have majority control of 68 out of 98 state legislative bodies.
*Republicans have been doing extremely well in mid-term elections and so you can expect them to do well in 2018, with Trump there to help them. Worse for Democrats, only eight Republican US senators are up for re-election in 2018 but 25(!) non-Republicans (Democrats and independents) are. This will provide a clear opportunity for another rout of the Democrats and could take Republicans to 60 US Senate seats, the “magic number” that would give Trump almost unlimited power.
Here is an added note from the Washington Post to make these arrogant Democrats even more depressed:
Donald Trump is set to inherit an uncommon number of vacancies in the federal courts in addition to the open Supreme Court seat, giving the president-elect a monumental opportunity to reshape the judiciary after taking office. The estimated 103 judicial vacancies that President Obama is expected to hand over to Trump in the Jan. 20 transition of power is nearly double the 54 openings Obama found eight years ago following George W. Bush’s presidency.
