Ever since Democrats turned their attention to the 2018 midterms, they began using the term “Blue Wave.” Of course Democrats adopted this term in order to help illustrate the expected wave of newly-elected Dems in response to President Trump and his administration.
Their aim was and has always been to take back the Senate and House of Representatives. Now, it appears that the Senate is likely out of reach for the Democrats. So, the Democrats are essentially putting everything on capturing the House. According to a report from the AP, the House for the Democrats may now be a stretch:
“Top operatives in both political parties concede that Democrats’ narrow path to the Senate majority has essentially disappeared, a casualty of surging Republican enthusiasm across GOP strongholds. At the same time, leading Democrats now fear the battle for the House majority will be decided by just a handful of seats.”
National Democratic Party Chairman Tom Perez must be one of those “top operatives” that is seeing what the Associated Press is reporting. On a recent appearance on CNN, Perez comments that he doesn’t even use the term blue wave and contends that this was always going to be difficult election.
Well, that’s probably not exactly what Dems want to hear from their chairman less than two weeks before an election. No matter what the polls say and what the “experts” predict, voters still have to go out and vote. The only poll that matters is the one after the polls close on Nov. 6.
Here’s Perez’s comments:
