Republicans are bracing for a total shellacking on Nov. 6, 2018. Polls show that they are truly the minority party, especially among women.
The democrats are buoyed by the fact that there are 209 congressional districts that are leaning or heavily democratic. It only takes 218 congressional seats to have a majority. They need only 9 more seats to lean or go democratic to take such control.
63% of women identify as democrats. Only 33% identify as republicans.
50% of men identify as republicans while 45% identify as democrats.
So, overall, the number of voters who identify as democrats is vastly larger than that of republicans.
The Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court Senate hearings - overall - are a boon to the democrats. If nothing else, there will be an absolute deluge of women voters turning out to vote. Any perceptible bump the GOP hopes to reap as a result of their win in getting Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court will be more than dwarfed by what happens as a result of the huge turn out by Democratic women on election day - Nov. 6th.
In Texas, the 2nd largest state behind California - Beto O'Rourke is battling head-to-head & even with GOP incumbent Ted Cruz to be the next U.S. senator from Texas. Cruz is on the ropes and O'Rourke is actually poised to pull off one of the biggest upssets in U.S. political history.
Andrew Gillum, the African-American democratic mayor of Tallahassee, Florida is leading Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis in the gubernatorial race in Florida! African-American Democrat Stacey Abrams is battling the Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp in Georgia for the governorship. Along with an O'Rourke victory in Texas, these developments alone could completely tilt the 2020 presidential race as they are major southern states with large African-American & non-white voter populations.
