Is a Blue Wave Coming in 2018?---The Cook Political Report

<snip>The last two weeks have seen some significant movement in Democrats favor. First, there were the impressive results from last Tuesday's elections. This week, we’ve seen two polls — one by Quinnipiac and one by Marist — that show Democrats with a congressional ballot advantage of +13 to +15. Three other recent polls — ABC/Washington Post, Fox, and NBC/Wall Street Journal — show Democrats with an advantage of anywhere from +7 to +15. These are political wave numbers. <snip>

I work every election. I'm a delegate every state convention. I knock on doors for every election. In Massachusetts, we just elected a union member State Senator (IBEW). Last year, we elected a State Senator in New Hampshire from our own ranks.


But, it's a lot easier to swim with the current than against it. That's all that this poll indicates.
