Will There Be a Blue Wave in November? - Why Democrats Will Struggle to Regain the House in Midterms Democratic infighting is jeopardizing the party’s hold on one of the nation’s most competitive congressional districts, providing the GOP with a rare pickup opportunity in November as it struggles to hold on to its 23-seat House majority
It took long and patient work by conservative politicians to complete the task of vandalizing democracy to their own advantage. It’s going to take long and patient work to undo the damage.

You've completely misread the article, if you read it at all. This article REFUTES the idea that Dems aren't so challenged by infighting as the press regularly reports. Rather, the article claims (at the end) Dems will have a hard time overcoming Republicans' rigging the system in their own favor.

Exactly correct:

Because of maps designed to favor Republicans, Democrats would need to win by a nearly unprecedented nationwide margin in 2018 to gain control of the House of Representatives. To attain a bare majority, Democrats would likely have to win the national popular vote by nearly 11 points. Neither Democrats nor Republicans have won by such an overwhelming margin in decades. Even a strong blue wave would crash against a wall of gerrymandered maps.
The sad truth....

The democrats will pick up some seats, the party out of power almost always does in the midterms.

But the Senate is a no go for sure and while their odds are better in the House it would be more realistic to see them pick up enough to put them in much easier range in 2020.
