McLaughlin Poll Warning for GOP: Back the Trump Agenda or Face Defeat in 2018

The central message of the poll is “dance with the one who brung ya,” and more specifically, dance with the Trump voters and their agenda.

Aja Smith Takes On Child Predator Loving Democrat Congressman Takano

Sgt. Aja Smith is doing what few other Republican candidates seem willing to do these days -- go after their Democratic opponents on a values issue, and more importantly, to call a pervert a pervert when they see one.

Pass GOP tax cuts by Thanksgiving or get ready for Speaker Pelosi

Newt Gingrich and Brad Anderson, USA Today

Tax cuts by November beat comprehensive reform next spring because changes will take time to take effect and for voters to feel the impact. A Republican majority can always come back to tax reform in 2019. Serious tax cuts will bring Americans more — and better — job opportunities, with higher take-home pay. That’s why we think this is the key to keeping the Republican majority in 2018.

Viguerie thinks Dems' takeover is scary, but unlikely

Chad Groening, OneNewsNow.com

Conservative leader Richard Viguerie offers his assessment of the liberal assault on President Trump, "What the Democrats are really up to, quite frankly, is they're trying everything they can to think about how they overturn the election results," he says. "You know they're very angry people and they're doing whatever they can to reverse the election results."

Democrats Should Fear the 2018 Midterms

Eddie Zipperer, Lifezette

Obama was the only thing about the Democratic Party that was working. The Democrats without Obama are like a furry, pink, drum-beating bunny without a battery. They’re like pizza without cheese. They’re like Katy Perry without auto-tune. And the party elites are too arrogant to fix their problems, which are getting worse each day we inch closer to Nov. 2018.

Democratic Dreams of Retaking Congress are a Fantasy

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Two-thirds of the 435 districts are effectively off the table, and only 50 or so seats are regarded by both parties as competitive. Sad, but true, and it takes something really, really yuuuuge to upset that arithmetic, and only inside the media bubble is Donald Trump likely to be that yuuuuge. His numbers are bad, but would have to get considerably badder to be yuuuge enough be catastrophic.

List Of House Republicans In Search Of A Primary Opponent

At this pivotal moment in U.S. history, when our leaders ought to be standing stronger and fighting harder than ever for us - they've chosen to wave a white flag in the face of government overreach and overspending. The only thing that gets their attention is a primary! Every one of them is guilty until proven innocent! Primary Them! Phyllis Schlafly, December 2015.

The Top Ten Most Popular Governors in the U.S. Are All Republicans

Tyler O'Neil, PJ Media

If all the feasible unpopular governors lose to the opposing party next year, Democrats would win six seats but lose four, for a net gain of two. If Democrats hold on to Virginia and take New Jersey, that takes them up to three, and if Rauner fails to hold his own in Illinois, that would be four. Right now, Republicans hold 33 governorships to the Democrats' 16. If the Morning Consult poll is accurate and the Democrats pick up this maximum suggestion, they would have 20 governorships, and Republicans would still hold 29.

Reeling Democrats confront brutal 2018 Senate map

Burgess Everett, Politico

Still nursing their wounds after last week’s thrashing, Democrats already are grappling with how to defend 10 senators up for reelection in 2018 in states that Donald Trump carried, some resoundingly. Republicans are targeting a quintet of senators from conservative states where Trump walloped Hillary Clinton: Montana, Missouri, Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia. The GOP could amass a filibuster-proof majority by running the table in those states and other battlegrounds.
