A new poll published by Axios this week spelled disaster for the Democratic Party just months ahead of the 2018 midterms, with data suggesting the liberal “dream” of retaking the Senate is quickly “slipping away.”
The survey, titled “Democrats’ Senate dream slips away” shows big trouble brewing for liberal candidates months before the nation heads to the polls as multiple incumbents -such as Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota, Bill Nelson in Florida, and Joe Donnelly in Indiana- face major uphill challenges.
“To win the Senate, Democrats need to keep all 10 seats they’re defending in states that President Trump won in 2016 — plus pick up two more seats,” writes Axios. “That’s not happening. A new Axios/SurveyMonkey poll of key states shows Dems would lose three of those red-state seats while picking up two GOP seats — still short of the majority.”
The new poll throws more cold-water on the overly-hyped “blue wave” hitting Congress this fall, with a stunning double-digit Democratic lead disappearing as the President racks up big wins on the economy and strong job growth.
