“You can’t really look at tonight’s results and conclude that Democrats are anything other than the current favorites to pick up the U.S. House in 2018”
See Democrats’ chances of taking the House improveI think the writing is on the wall. Democrats and Independents are so outraged by Trump himself and what he tried to do with ObamaCare that a wave of voters ran to the polls last night in Virginia and elsewhere to express their displeasure with what the GOP are doing.
There are two solutions for the GOP:
- Oppose Trump openly and bring forth legislation that many Democrats can support, and/or,
- Impeach Trump to remove him from the picture completely. He’s not a Republican. He’s not a conservative. He’s just a negative force in politics. Impeach him for the weight of his misdemeanours or encouraging Russian intrigues.
Otherwise, Ds will gain in a big way in 2018 and may well gain control of the whole government. The only thing Trump can do to stop this wave would be to restart war with North Korea. The GOP needs to impeach Trump ASAP, before that can happen. How about next Tuesday? That should give every member of the GOP ample time to reflect. Oh, and about Pence? Let him know he’s supposed to carry out the will of Congress, not impose despotic rule.
