The end of Robert Muellers investigation. The loss of health insurance for several million people. New laws that make it harder to vote. More tax cuts for the rich. More damage to the environment. A Republican Party molded even more in the image of President Trump.
These are among the plausible consequences if the Republicans sweep the midterm elections and keep control of both the House and Senate. And dont fool yourself. That outcome, although not the most likely one, remains possible. The last couple of weeks of polling have shown how it could happen.
Voters who lean Republican including whites across the South could set aside their disappointment with Trump and vote for Republican congressional candidates. Voters who lean left including Latinos and younger adults could turn out in low numbers, as they usually do in midterm elections. The Republicans continuing efforts to suppress turnout could also swing a few close elections.
No matter what, Democrats will probably win the popular vote in the House elections, for the first time since 2012. Trump, after all, remains unpopular. But the combination of gerrymandering and the concentration of Democratic voters in major cities means that a popular-vote win wont automatically translate into a House majority.
In the Senate, the election already seems to be slipping away from the Democrats. Several of this years close Senate races happen to involve Democrats defending seats in red states. As a result, Republicans may expand their current 51-49 majority, making it easier for them to win close votes on legislation and nominations.

Somebody is going to get tired of winning...not.
HAR HAR HAR. It won't be any more difficult for me - a USA citizen - to vote
The Dems will increase taxes, open the borders further, conduct partisan witch hunts, outlaw men, and trash the economy.
Good jobs= health insurance. That’s typically how Americans have acquired health insurance in the past a-holes.
Dem’s internal polling must be terrible. Third or fourth article like this I’ve seen, just in the last two days.
The Dems have a lot of Gaul saying the GOP would make it harder to vote given the Dems intimidation tactics.
It is all the Republican and Trumps fault!!! Not one word about Democrat party out of step with Americans.
Laws that would make it harder to vote
For whom??? Eligible US citizens are not in any way burdened by requirements to show ID. That is such a BS argument.
Gimme a W——gimme an I-———gimme a an N—————/
Umm, Im thinking David Leonhardt should be placed on suicide watch....
No wait, racists and homophobes and the superstious middle class voters voted against their own financial interest again.
And wimen voted the way their husbands TOLD them to again.
Methinks you are right. The “blue wave” confidence seems to be gone.
Leftists ALWAYS play this card not realizing how racist it makes them sound. I know plenty of black men and women who are thankful for Trump's economy and will vote Republican this year.
Looking forward to the FR election night thread and complete media meltdown. Second best election ever coming up !
Couldn't have said it better myself. Thanks NY Slimes!

Get used to it- we’re smack dab in the middle of the lbieral’s “We’re all gonna perish because of republicans” season
“The end of Robert Muellers investigation. The loss of health insurance for several million people. New laws that make it harder to vote. More tax cuts for the rich. More damage to the environment. A Republican Party molded even more in the image of President Trump.”
Sounds like a bunch of winning things happening to me! And that bit about a GOP molded into the image of President Trump is the best of all.
The impotent raging by the leftists will be even more over the top? That will be fun to watch from a distance.
