The 2016 election promised great days for America, but the 2018 election now threatens to make 2016 nothing but an insignificant footnote in history.
A Democratic victory in November would, at best, mean gridlock for the next two years as Congress blocks the President’s legislative agenda, overturns his regulatory actions, and rejects his judicial appointments.
Even worse, it could lead to the impeachment and conviction of Trump and Pence, putting Speaker Nancy Pelosi in the Oval Office.
As of today, Democrats are justifiably optimistic about their chances of a big victory in November. Historically, the president’s party loses a large number of seats during a first-term midterm election. Even Ronald Reagan suffered a GOP loss of more than 20 House seats, while other presidents have suffered losses of more than 40.
The major pundits with a history of accuracy (Charlie Cook, Larry Sabato, Nathan Gonzales, Sean Trende), agree that Democrats have good reason for hope, and give them at least a 50-50 chance of retaking the House with the clear possibility of winning a big majority. They cite strong reasons for this projection. Republicans hold more than 20 House districts that voted for Hillary Clinton, while only a few Trump districts are held by Democrats. This GOP vulnerability has been enhanced by the retirement of more than 40 Republicans in the House, surrendering the great advantage of incumbency.
Polling has, except for a few outliers, consistently shown the public preferring Democratic congressional candidates by margins ranging from four points to double digits. The general momentum has also been towards expanding the number of vulnerable Republican seats, with almost all changed evaluations moving in the Democratic direction. Less than two weeks ago, Gonzales announced changes in nineteen districts, all in favor of the Democrats. This is the type of one-sided environment that preceded the Republican wave of 2010 and the Democratic wave of 2006.
Furthermore, a long series of special elections have demonstrated that Democrats, with their strong hatred of Trump, are more motivated than Republicans to go the polls. The Democratic victory in a southwestern Pennsylvania House race got the most public notice, but dozens of state legislative seat have also flipped to the Democrats. Some of these were districts that had not elected a Democrat for decades. And this trend is not only seen in special elections. Last year Democrats won an additional 15 seats in Virginia’s House of Delegates, falling only one short of ending Republican control.
Even the Senate, where most of the vulnerable incumbents are Democrats, might not be immune to Democratic momentum. None of the Republican challengers are favored to win at this point, while the GOP is struggling to hold seats in Nevada, Arizona, and Tennessee. The signs point toward the possibility of a disappointment on the scale of 2012, when Republicans confidently expected to gain a few Senate seats and instead lost two. That same outcome in 2016 would put Democrat Charles Schumer in charge of the Senate.
Democrats are benefiting from two important advantages as we approach November 6. Many Trump voters are greatly disappointed that more has not been accomplished in the first seventeen months of Trump’s presidency. They wonder if it does any good to vote. At the same time, many independent voters are being subjected to the daily propaganda barrage of the liberal media, while memories of the Obama years are fading away.
The solution is to remind Trump voters and independents of what we suffered during the years that Obama occupied the White House, and how much worse it would have become if Hillary Clinton had been elected.
And voters need to know that the Democratic Party of 2018 makes the Democrats of 2012 and 2016 look like moderates.
Today’s Democrats openly say that it’s time to abolish ICE, the agency responsible for deporting illegal aliens.
Today’s Democrats say that ObamaCare is too conservative, and must be replaced with a system of even greater government control over our health care, not to mention the additional billions that it would cost the taxpayer.
Today’s Democrats say that they want to repeal the tax cut President Trump gave us.
Today’s Democrats want job-killing regulations even worse than those of Obama.
And of course, Democrats still
- call for taxpayer-funded abortions
- put political correctness above the religious liberty guaranteed by the Constitution
- want to take away our guns
- want to pour more money into Obama’s green energy boondoggles
- favor amnesty and citizenship for illegal aliens
- oppose requiring a photo ID to protect our voting
- demand more Federal judges who will ignore what the Constitution says
FedUp PAC is determined to make sure that voters, especially key swing voters, will be reminded about what is at stake. We’ll make them aware of how much they have to lose if Democrats are back in control next year.
Just two years ago FedUp PAC set out to expose Hillary Clinton. We targeted states such as Florida, Pennsylvania, Michigan, North Carolina, and Wisconsin. That effort helped swing them into line for Donald Trump while also helping elect senators in Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Wisconsin.
We can do it again in 2018.
But to win, FedUp PAC must have your help. We know how to use the latest technology to target the voters who will swing the elections.
This program of voter contact by email, FaceBook, etc. is relatively cheap, and highly cost-effective (especially compared to TV spots), but it is not free.
That is why your donation of $25, $100, $500 or more to FedUp PAC is needed today – because with polls showing what could be an across-the-board Democratic triumph, even in deep-red states, there is not a day to waste.
FedUp PAC is already planning what needs to be done to protect and expand Trump’s majorities. Those plans can move forward as soon as we have the funds to proceed.
With your help, we can make 2018 a year that moves us further toward Making American Great Again. Without it, FedUp PAC will be sitting on the sidelines, unable to help.
