Open Letter to DU (cause I cannot post there myself)

There will not be a Blue Wave. Its not coming. The polls are misleading you exactly like they did in 2016.

There is a reason for this. Democrats are offering nothing but "Trump is bad." They have offered no new ideas.
Democrats want to reverse the tax cut (inspite of it's effect on the economy) solely because it came from Trump.
The Democrats are openly calling for gun confiscation. Further the calls to abolish ICE and open borders are scaring voters away.

Their identity politics strategy is failing. increasing numbers of blacks and Hispanics are siding with Trump all because of the economy. Open racism against whites are driving moderates and independents away from the Left. Media stars like the crazy b!tch in NY stating that capitalism is dead, likewise are scaring off the elderly vote who depend on Capitalism to keep their IRA's afloat.

Remember the polls all predicted an easy win for Hillary. You are building your hopes on a false foundation. Reasonable Lefties I speak to are relying on Tradition to deliver the House to them...they forget that we are NOT in traditional times - ALL the rules have been broken.

the Two Year Long Tantrum has endeared not a single new voter for you. Its in fact it has sparked a very real "Walk Away Movement.

The Blue Wave is NOT coming. You can't blame this on Russia. Democrats have shown their inability to govern or debate, or even offer an alternative. Newt won the house - for the first time in 40 years - with a specific set of proposals. I have yet to see a single proposal from your side outside of impeachment.
You are not going to win on a slogan this time. You need real ideas.

Your Blue wave is not coming.

I would ask someone to cross post this at DU, but I'm afraid the group think crime unit will give them a hide.
Maybe just a link...

This is DI and cons are allowed to post here. I am more interested in seeing what people at DU think.

2. This is what Ilovestx said:

"Keep telling yourself that dickwad."
No need to be rude or self delete--this would have likely survived a jury.

My point is. I want to here WHY you think the Wave is coming.

3. The dems are losing black voters and moderates as well.

Even Hispanics are jumping ship.

The dems better get ready for 2016 all over again.

Life is good.

5. Common sense might tell us that since it happened in every election, it will happen again.

Usually the opposing party comes out strong in the midterms.

Why would this time be any different? Trump supporters that only voted for Trump are NOT going to come out for people like Cruz.

I mean, maybe. But I don't see it.

7. 'This is what Ilovestx said:'



This is their voter pool, this is why it has degenerated to the state it is currently in.
these aren't Democrats anymore, they haven't been for at least 20 years. nobody but other hateful fascists want to associate with them now... and I don't blame good Democrats. These people have gone over the cliff with this socialist shit and their violence.

4. ".....The polls are misleading you exactly like they did in 2016. ...."

This is something I don't understand, why the lorgnette-and-pearls crowd here, including Grahams, persist in posting stories of polls showing us how President Trump is (ostensibly) doing.

These are the same people who were burned badly by the polls in 2016, victims of the deceptions of pollsters because the pollsters withheld from them what was really going on, instead telling them the fantasy they wanted to hear.

They were burned. Badly.

So why do they keep on trusting the polls? Wouldn't a regular person be so pissed off about being lied to, that he wouldn't look at another poll the rest of his life?

15. Posted only for the sake of accuracy

The final polls taken right before the 2016 election predicted an average Hillary Clinton victory in the national popular vote of 3.2 points. Clinton actually won the popular vote by 2.1 points so a cumulative average of the polls were only off by a single point. That's amazingly accurate.
Pre-election popular opinion polls don't predict the Electoral vote which Trump won. Of course there are no electoral votes at stake in our upcoming mid-terms.
https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/us/general_election_trump_vs_clinton-5491.html

The most accurate poll was the ABC/Washington Post poll which predicted Hillary Clinton: 49% (she got 48.2%) and Donald Trump: 46%. He actually got 46.1% of the popular vote.

DaMann is correct though that local polls for congressional seats and even statewide senate seat elections predictions tend to be much less accurate than national polls due to smaller sample sizes.

I have no clue who will come out on top in November and a lot can happen between now and then.
