WHOA! Republicans Just Took Lead Over Democrats In Generic Ballot – First Time In More Than Two Years!

This might explain why the Democrat Party leadership is now trying to (laughably) push a “Drain the Swamp” theme for the 2018 Midterms. Drain the swamp was, of course, a front-and-center theme of Donald Trump’s stunningly successful 2016 campaign. Basically, Donald Trump is winning so much these days even the Democrats are copying him!

As of now according to the Reuters rolling generic ballot poll Republicans have a more than six-point lead over Democrats. Those numbers haven’t been that high since the 2010 Midterms when Democrats were massacred and Nancy Pelosi was given the boot from the House Speaker’s office.

To have Republicans doing so well right now with a Republican in the White House is unprecedented and the man they should be thanking over and over again is President Donald Trump.

The generic poll is sure to bounce around from now until the Midterms, but as of today, the trend is clearly favoring Republicans.

Rand Paul Destroys Republican Leadership With One Tweet

The hypocrisy of the Republican leadership apparently knows no depths to which it will not fall. The latest omnibus monstrosity is but another glaring example. It bloats deficit spending to Obama-like levels, sidesteps full funding of border protection, hands out billions of dollars to special interest vampires, and ultimately flies in the face of almost everything Republicans continue to promise their constituents. POTUS Trump admitted as much in an earlier tweet as he grudgingly accepts the deal from the Republican leadership but Rand Paul doesn’t hold back.

How POTUS Trump Stared Down Establishment Republicans On Tax Bill – And Won

The more Donald Trump learns the often bizarre and petty machinations of D.C. politics the more dangerous he becomes to the status quo. You see, Trump is a quick study. His learning curve has been abrupt, and sometimes brutal – but it now appears that soon he will be signing a major tax cut bill into law.

It wasn’t an easy path to get to this point and the primary obstacle wasn’t Democrats or the continually biased and idiotic Mainstream Media. No, it was the GOP leadership who stood in the way. Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan were none too eager to give President Trump a major legislative victory. Mr. Trump knew that – and then he prepared to step right over them and leave them behind. Soon, McConnell and Ryan were begging to be part of the tax reform effort.

It’s the economy, stupid. The Trump economic boom persisted and Republicans were increasingly desperate to look as if they had played a part in its ongoing success. (They hadn’t. Most of the economic boom has been directly linked to Trump’s use of Executive Orders to slash regulations, and his success in securing hundreds of billions in new trade agreements overseas.)

By late summer, McConnell knew Trump was boxing him in. More and more voters were becoming aware that it was Trump and Trump alone who was helping to revitalize the economy after eight long tepid years of an Obama presidency. The 2018 Midterms loomed. Trump had already proven himself willing to take on Republicans directly. This president’s loyalty is not to the party but to the American people. He promised them more jobs and lower taxes and the millions of Trump supporters out there trusted Mr. Trump was doing his best to keep those promises. Ire against the Republican establishment had turned to disgust – the kind of disgust that could lead to some very big names being voted out in the next election.

Mitch McConnell wants very much to retire from the Senate as Majority Leader. A poor showing in 2018 could end that hope. Paul Ryan still has aspirations for a White House run. A 2018 Midterm debacle could derail those plans as well.

Trump held the cards for 2018. With a few tweets, he could either fire up the base, or let them know this is one election they should stay home. Let the Democrats take the Senate back. Would it matter? Was there any real difference between Senate Republicans and Democrats? This potential scenario drifted out from the Trump White House to Congress multiple times throughout October and November.

The economy has been booming and Republicans wanted to take part of the credit. Trump was happy to let them do so – but they needed to send him a tax cut bill quick in order for that to happen. McConnell and Ryan capitulated. They didn’t want to. They still despise Trump and his outsider presence in their once-protected and exclusive D.C. bubble. Trump made it so they had very little choice. He bent back their puny political arms and applied just enough pressure to let them know he could snap them off at the elbow if he chose.

A flurry of legislative activity ensued.

A tax cut bill is now on its way.

The Art of the Deal just trumped business as usual in Washington D.C.
