Don't Touch That Dial! The 2018 Election will Feature Even MORE Mudslinging!
If you're worried about getting bored and restless after November 8th, fear not:
Even if Democrats win the Senate this year, Republicans are practically guaranteed to recapture it with a vengeance in the 2018 election.
“What few people talk about — but should — is that this could be a very short-lived majority for Senate Democrats, as the 2018 field is remarkably bad for them.
The numbers for that year are stunning: 25 Democratic or Democratic-affiliated independents are up for reelection, compared with just eight Republicans. That’s as lopsided an election cycle as you will ever see.
But a look inside the numbers makes the Democrats’ challenge in 2018 all the more daunting. Fully 20 percent of the 25 Democratic seats are in states that then-Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney carried in 2012 (and even Trump is likely to carry on Nov. 8): Indiana, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota and West Virginia.”
OK, get that relieved complacent expression off your face, clench your teeth and make a fist 'til your knuckles turn white. And maintain that posture for at least two more years.
Never a dull moment.
