blue wave

Digesting Tuesday’s Election Results

As vigorous and enthusiastic campaigner as Donald Trump is, he can only show up the weekend before the election to save a few congressional candidates whose campaigns are lagging. If you want to win, nationalize the election and start campaigning NOW on the Trump agenda.

Blue Wave Balderdash

David Catron, The American Spectator

This couldn’t come at a worse time for the Democrats. Once-loyal supporters are becoming disillusioned and joining the #WalkAway movement, rejecting the party that presided over slavery, the KKK, Jim Crow, segregation, and the welfare plantation. The turnout they need won’t be there. Democrat claims to the contrary are nothing more than swamp gas, noxious effluvia from the bowels of a moribund Beltway beast.

California results suggest blue wave has crested and ebbed

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

The latest results, taken together with the generic ballot — polls asking which party’s House candidate you’ll vote for — tend to undercut the many gleeful predictions of a blue wave that produces a big Democratic majority in the House and perhaps the Senate as well. Opinion can shift: perhaps another blue wave is building. But the one almost everyone was expecting six months ago seems to have crested and ebbed.

The Republican comeback is a real threat to the elite media's 'blue wave' theory

Newt Gingrich, Fox News

The media's “blue wave” storyline was created before many of the benefits of the Trump-Republican agenda began to take hold, and it’s going to be increasingly difficult to convince Americans their lives aren’t getting better. I have no doubt the elite media and the left will continue to prop up their “blue wave” message and keep attacking President Trump and Republicans at every opportunity. However, this will only widen the gap between them and the rest of the country.

Showdown in November: Fearsome Blue Wave or Flaccid Democrat Failure?

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

November is more than just a political scuffle. It’s existential. When you have Democrat tech titans squealing over the thought of a “civil war” on Republicans and a leftist cultural campaign designed to drive half of the population out of the public sphere, you know it’s important. We either win in November or the most dire hypotheticals of our country being split apart or even in conflict might well migrate from the “Fiction” stacks to the “Non-Fiction” section.
