Poll to Dispel the Doom & Gloom

WaPo published the results of a poll in 69 House battleground districts where Dems lead by an average of 4 points. And before anyone says O.M.G., only 4 points! Please note the following:

By way of comparison, in 2016 these same districts favored Republican candidates over Democratic ones by 15 percentage points, 56 percent to 41 percent.


Yeah, that's a definite shift in our direction, in a race where we need 23 seats to gain the majority. The biggest change?

Women are driving Democratic support in the battleground districts, favoring the party’s candidates by 54 percent to 40 percent.


We can do this! And anyone saying that the Kavanaugh debacle will bring women home to the GOP is flat-out daft.

November 6th. We drive these suckers into the sea.

Don't look at polls, GOTV! They are doing everything they can to make sure they stay in power. They lie, cheat and steal elections. GOTV! Make sure we have poll watchers at EVERY poll!!!!

3. Yes and one of the ways . . .

They are doing everything they can to make sure they stay in power.

is by writing a false narrative of 'oh noes, all is lost.' For us, the Democrats. the majority in this country who fought the good fight against Kavanaugh and are on track to bust their nuts.

I agree. Polls will not turn the tide but they sure as hell can improve outlook and do the very thing you're demanding: GOTV and fight like our lives depended on it. Because they do.

4. It's very significant

Now, we work to turn those numbers into a reality.

We vote en masse. We win for everyone.
