Blue way? What Blue wave?
#1
Obviously I'm a long way from the action, but from the limited information I see here, I'm beginning to suspect the Democrats have done themselves a lot of harm in recent weeks. So I suspect the Blue Wave isn't much of a thing:

1. Warren's timing of announcing her DNA was awful. It's made her a standing joke and brought into question her integrity and that of the party.

2. This 'caravan' of Latinos is just what Trump wants in order to justify his position. It will frighten many middle Americans into supporting his position. The crazies in the Democrats demanding the end of ICE is utterly absurd by comparison.

3. The Democrats behavior over the Kavanaugh hearing was odious. Theirs was not a principled position and it showed. Not a good look.

4. The dog-whistle attacks on Republicans by Pelosi and Waters have come back to haunt them. I presume you've seen the Republican election ads on the topic? This is terribly damaging for the Democrats!



5. Elevating this stupid cow Cortez and giving her a platform is a gift to the Republicans.

They're so focussed on hating Trump, they haven't bothered to consider what they are for.

Clearly it's a tight race and a lot will decide on local issues, but I don't see a blue wave. Maybe a red tide?

The GOP does have a few things going in their favor.

1. Voter Suppression. Purging voters from the rolls. Moving voting places out of town. Dodge in Kansas is the best example. In my ward, they moved the voting place from the school where we had been voting for the last 60 years to another ward. Adjacent wards had their polling places closed, and moved into my ward. Then they want only certain forms of ID that not everyone has.

2. Gerrymandering. Incumbents picking their voters.

Four Women Indicted in North Texas Voter Fraud Ring


Quote:Four women who are accused of targeting elderly voters in 2016 were indicted on 30 felony counts of voter fraud and arrested following an investigation by the office of the Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.
The defendants were members of an organized voter fraud ring and were paid to target elderly voters in certain northern Fort Worth precincts in a scheme to generate large numbers of mail ballots, then harvest those ballots for specific candidates, the office's news release said.

Guys like this don’t help the Dems either

And yet more!

Former CNN host Piers Morgan has a hard message for Democrats just two weeks out from the crucial midterms: "Trump’s kicking your a**." If things continue to trend as recent polls are indicating, Morgan predicts, Trump is about to deliver "the biggest knockout punch of his presidency."

Only 26 ballots involved in this so called "vote fraud" ?

And it took 4 women to do so.

Sounds to me like it was 4 women who were helping a bunch of shut-ins vote.


But keep us informed.

Those were only the ones they chose to use for the prosecution, most likely the tip of a blue iceberg

THE TEXAS DEMOCRATIC PARTY MAY BE INVESTIGATED FOR A CONFUSING VOTER REGISTRATION MAILER

Quote:The Texas secretary of state's office has asked the state's attorney general to investigate a democratic mailer that had a checkbox indicating citizenship pre-checked

The Texas secretary of state's office has asked the state's attorney general to investigate a mailer sent by the state's Democratic Party this year that critics say could entice non-citizens to register to vote.

The mailer, sent out in late September and early October, included a voter registration form for the recipient to fill out. Though most of the form was left blank, a checkbox indicating that the person filling out the form was a United States citizen was pre-checked.
Still nothing to see here, Aqua?    Undecided
