Democrats traumatized by 2016 are having pre-midterms nightmares
No worries Democrats, the polls are saying you have it in the bag. Right? RIGHT?...Oh dear Lord....
“We're kind of just in the bed-wetting phase now," said Democratic pollster John Anzalone, a Hillary Clinton campaign alumnus who spent election night 2016 in Clinton’s Manhattan war room.
Two years later, even thinking about the prospect of a repeat of that night’s letdown is still too much for many Democrats to bear.
“Stop it!” shouted Nadeam Elshami, a former chief of staff to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, when asked about that possibility. To be fair, the possibility has literally haunted his dreams.
Right now the polls point toward the Dems taking the House. Democrats, take some comfort in that. One has to think that the pollsters have upped their game from 2016. Additionally we saw a mini "blue wave", kinda, in Virginia in 2017. So that's another good sign for Democrats.
On the other hand Pence came out and said the GOP was going to keep the House and it is unlikely given the nature of the statement that it was just wishful thinking.
