Default Dem Chances in November??

How would you describe the attitude of the Dems you know going into November? Since we're all being bombarded with (and never get to vote in) bogus Dem polls going into the elections, here's a chance to actually vote in a poll and see the results. Feel free, of course, to post further comments or keen analysis after you vote.

The ones I know are totally focused on anything not Trump. It appears to me that anti Trump is their entire agenda. The mid terms will be a watershed moment for Trump going forward.

I was on a shuttle yesterday and overheard a conversation between two disgruntled Hillary supporters talking about the mid-terms. Their wishful thinking and logic was since Hillary won the popular vote then that is an indicator for how the mid-terms will play out.

My understanding is if it wasn't for California, Hillary would not have won the popular vote in 2016. That statistic would call BS on that argument.

most Of the dems I talk to are totally in denial , Trump could pay off the national debt, end all crime and cure all disease,
and they would find some way to claim hes ruining the country

The Dems I've spoken with are very angry, confrontational and are all over the map, complaining about all kinds of stuff on all levels--national, state and local. But none of them have mentioned a single word about expecting a Blue Wave next Tuesday. It's like they don't want anybody to be able to say "I told ya so" when they lose on Tuesday. Even the MSM is flopping around on who is going to win where. Maybe they're getting upset that the DNC isn't able to shut Hillary up.

My vote only partially represents most of the Dems that I know... They're mad that Trump is president, Frustrated that Republicans are in the majority, but aren't afraid that they're going lose... Most of them are caught up in the whole "Blue Wave" foolishness

DEMs see their self proclaimed "blue wave" crashing against a red breakwater which will protect the coastline (insert nation for coastline) and they are scrambling madly. They really screwed up with Kavanaugh and by letting idiots like Mad Max Waters become their spokesperson. At sunrise on Nov 7 you will find the GOP holds onto the senate, the GOP holds onto the house, the GOP holds onto the majority of the gov mansions, the GOP holds onto the majority of the state legislatures, the GOP holds the WH, the GOP continues to improve the economy and appoint judges and the LIBs will all go outside for round 2 of screaming at the sky.

Gonna be fun ti watch. Personally I am going to tell Beto NO as soon as the polls open on Tues.

Flags asked me to remind everyone. Republicans vote on Wednesday and Libertarians on Thursday.

Vote early, vote often!
