But one issue stands out: border security. Amazingly, the pollsters admit its the first time theyve asked about border security, and 59 percent of registered voters said it is an important issue in the election. Eighty-four percent of Republicans and 47 percent of Democrats ranked border security as a key issue; independents were evenly split. Republicans have a ten-point lead over Democrats on the question of who will better handle border security, and a 19-point lead among independents. (Anyone who reads Rachel Bovard wont be surprised by this.)
The biggest headwind for the GOP remains Donald Trump.
Back peddling rats. The chickens have come home to roost
Carter was well ahead of Reagan until the weekend before the election in 1980.
Yeah, and Im sure they really believe it, too. Trump is pulling 15,000+ people to his rallies, and HES a problem for the GOP?! Ha ha ha! Hes the only reason those idiots have a prayer of retaining control of Congress.
generic congressional ballot
If border security is important, why would President Trump be a headwind?
I expected leftist voter fatigue. The democrats counted on getting their pink-hat contingent angry and keeping them angry for two years. Even among those on the left, maintaining rage for that long is exhausting. One of the few people I actually like on the Bernie Sanders fringe just told me yesterday that she's not voting - she planned a vacation and was "too busy" to vote early, so she will miss this election.
Throw in the far left's overreach with Kavanaugh, which offended most women who have husbands or sons (pretty much everyone over age 30 except those SJWs who killed all their unborn children), and the democrats destroyed their chances with normal voters. Changing the standards of guilt to a Salem Witch Trial mentality was a very serious error. Thank God America's enemies are so incompetent; other than President Trump, our allies are not any more capable.
Not too late for a fake phony fraud “crisis”.
Nothing more than pollsters back tracking so they don’t get as many eggs on their faces as 2016
The polls are paid for my the left wing media and to the last breath and until actual poll numbers come in they will continue to say that the Dems will win. But they are starting to downplay it.
In 48-72 hours we will read stories that “Even though Democrats failed to win the House or Senate, their performance this election cycle is a win”
Every time the MSM uses ‘IT’S A TIE’ or “DEAD HEAT’ in the polls or headlines, it means the Republican is LEADING by a respectable margin..
I was making calls for a State Senate candidate, contacting only Unaffiliated voters who have yet to return their ballots.
NOBODY would talk to me!
EVERY answered call hung up on me!
I don’t think illegals are near as benign an issue with many voters as the Left would like to believe. Like supporting Trump, most voters probably either don’t answer or lie about being tired of illegals because they don’t want to be thought of as racist. I remember the first time I traveled abroad for business. I got tired of never being able to understand what people were saying around me. It was good to get back home where I could understand everyone, and I fit in. Now, I go out and hear Spanish everywhere. I feel like a foreigner in my own country.
Either their polling methodology is seriously flawed or "independent women" are the most insanely flighty group of humans that have ever developed.
First time they have asked about illegal immigrants!!!!! Are just stupid? Were you asleep for the past three years? And you wonder why people wont talk to pollster. America knows you are just another liberal group posing as independent thinking but are frauds.
To me the choice is obvious for anyone: We’ve had 2 years of unprecedented economic growth, prosperity and record setting job creation while the other side has offered nothing constructive but non-stop 24 hour a day criticism, hostility, violence, false accusations and race flaming. Anyone who can’t see that has mental issues and those people are in the minority, so I think Republicans are going to do quite well Tuesday.
The top two issueshealth care and the economy
interesting- everything i’ve read says immigration is the top issue- but liberals and/or liberal media can’t/won’t talk about that..
I've always assumed Dems used polls to figure out where to cheat by using dead votes, multiple votes, and illegal votes to put their candidate over the top.
They'll do it this election big time - no more assuming they will win just because they're Democrats. They will go all out this time...
The polls have been fake all along. Now they are starting to adjust them in order to save face. Too late. It won’t work.
Trust Democrats to handle immigration? I don’t think so.
