    It was Rick Scott who signed gun regulation into law. What are you talking about?

    I love how the Republicans on this board are blithely tripping along, thinking there is no groundswell going against them and they are going to retain control of the government forever and ever.....

    Fair enough, but any sane person can look back and see the same movement taking place again this year as what happened to the Dems in 2010...but they don't, and they won't....in fact, Trump is much more unpopular than Obama was in 2010....and don't forget, there are 47 Republican held congressional district that have a bigger percentage of Democrats than the one just lost by Republicans in Pennsylvania....

    Well thats just it, the party in the WH almost always loses in the midterms. It doesnt even matter how popular they are as we saw with Obama, Reagan and Clinton. All lost big in midterms.

    But then add in the unpopularity of Trump and the absolute disgust he has engendered in a large segment of the population and get ready for a mid term tsunami....and we all know that between now and November, Trump will continue to tweet hateful shit and alienate even more segments of the population, he has no where to go except down.

    Unless there is a terror attack or too much talk of gun confiscation or an announced retirement of a SC justice. They get people on the right out to vote in droves and while large dem turnout means them winning the House, it doesnt always translate to the senate.

    We will just have to wait and see, like you said, it depends on how badly Trump fucks up over the next 6 months and that is unfathomable at this point, but history is on our side.

    True but its a terribly big hill to climb. Not impossible but difficult. Even Manchin and Heitlkamp are struggling. We will know more after the primaries, a lot will depend on who wins.
