    Question Democrats will win the House in 2018



    I get that this is only my opinion, but I feel certain that Democrats will finally win the House next year in the mid term elections.

    The two biggest drivers of how mid-term elections will go are the party of the president and the Generic Congressional Ballot polling. These reasons alone will be enough to sway the pendulum to the other side, especially, when we are deeply embroiled in a criminal investigation into the White House. Any party newly in control of the White House is normally at an automatic disadvantage for the mid-terms in the first place.

    When you also consider how the ACA was consistently bungled by republicans and the fact healthcare is a major issue for most people, it's a given that this will figure into how voters view congress.

    Finally, the amount of unnecessary taunting and a wanton lack of bi-partisanship displayed by current incumbents will create record turn-outs of left leaning voters with a resolve to "take back their country."

    The pendulum always swings back around, this time it will cost the Republicans.....dearly.

    Very possible.

    When a prez gets elected, his party usually suffers losses in the midterms.

    Just look at 2010 when the Dems suffered a "shellacking", that was Obama's word.

    Fair chance you are correct. Certainly likely that the Democrats will pick up seats.

    As to your comment they "will finally" win the House.....They have been Majority in the House during many sessions.

    This is true, and yet, the reason for disappointing midterm results for the party that holds the White House is usually that they actually did something during the president's first year in office. Any time Congress manages to do something significant, it will piss off a significant sector of the electorate, thereby motivating turnout among that sector.

    Democrats, for the most part, will have to rely upon the things that the Republicans attempted (and failed) to do during Trump's first term to motivate their voters to turn out, since Congress didn't actually accomplish very much of anything this year. That, and hope that the jaded electorate is fed up with the immoral slime that the GOP has morphed into under Trump's leadership.

    I don't believe in Karma -- no evidence exists for it and to my knowledge, no one has ever made a compelling case, even.

    It's another word some use for the Spiritual Law of Cause and Effect or What You Sow That You Shall Also Reap.
