So Let Us Talk About The Wave
As we talked about Democrats win will directly impact the president’s ability to advance his political agenda. This mid-term election results will reshape the national political map of the country. These elections are said to be a referendum on the incumbent president. When the popularity of the president is low, voters take out their frustration on their party of the Congress. On the contrary, if the president is riding high or largely popular among the public, the party is rewarded.
According to a poll survey done by A Wall Street Journal, more than 50 percent of likely voters prefer Democrats, while 41 percent prefer Republican control. There are pretty good chances for the Democrats to gain some ground in the house. The blue wave of Democratic gains in the House in 2018 now is running into a tide of uncertainty that has been created with a surge of Republican intensity.
Although Democrats are more way forward in the national poll overall, their advantage has almost vanished in the House districts that matter the most in the election.

Trump’s Take On Democrats!
Donald Trump is considered the most furious and unpredictable politician in American political history. In a political promotion rally, he said: “All the Democrats want is power”. On the new immigration policy, he said if the Democrats would stop being obstructionist and come together, we could write up and agree to new immigration laws in less than one hour. He talked about the negative effect of illegal immigration that is happening in America and he invited to top Senate Democrats Check Schumer of New York and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California for the discussion on the issue.
The battlefield for this 2018 mid-term election is not going to be very easy for the Democrats. The map is tilted toward Republicans and numbers are also in the favor of them. Democrats need to over perform to compete when district voters are 8 points more Republican than the country as a whole in this important elections. On the economic point, Donald Trump and his party are pushing the economic numbers as a reason why they deserve another two years of unified control in Washington. But history shows, a growing economy is no guarantee of success for the presidential party.
According to the latest statement issued by the Former House speaker Newt Gingrich, he said there was 66 percent chance that the Democrats would take the House in November’s midterm elections. Let’s see who’s is going to win the Us Mid-Terms Elections.
