Democrats Are About To Retake The Senate And McConnell Is Panicking

Published

With Election Day just more than six months away, the fight for the Senate majority is tightening with Democrats now gaining momentum, and Republicans are panicking.

Across the nation, some Senate Democratic candidates are starting to outraise vulnerable Republican incumbents in states where Trump’s approval rating has taken a hit, points out The Hill.

Citing Kyle Kondik, managing editor at Sabato’s Crystal Ball at the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics, The Hill reports that “states like North Carolina and Maine have gotten better and better for Democrats throughout the cycle.”

The news outlet also cites Cook Political Report, another nonpartisan forecasting group saying “the chances of Democrats taking back the Senate are rising and now close to 50-50 odds with several plausible paths for Democrats to win a majority.”

Democratic challengers have outraised Republican incumbents in Arizona, Colorado, Kentucky, Maine, Montana, North Carolina and South Carolina — where Sen. Lindsey Graham is sliding in he polls.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) had its best-ever first-quarter fundraising haul at $28 million.

Meanwhile, approval rating has taken a dive during the pandemic after initial gains.

A Gallup poll published Thursday showed the president’s approval rating at 43 percent, falling 6 percentage points from mid-March, the sharpest drop since he took office.

It’s going to be a bigger blue wave in November.

‘I can’t In Good Countenance Continue To Show This’: Fox News Cut Away From Trump’s Press Sec. For Pushing Baseless Claims Of Election Fraud

Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto on Monday cut away from a press briefing featuring Kayleigh McEnany, who is both the White House press secretary and a Trump campaign spokesperson, as she continued to push Donald Trump’s baseless claims of election fraud.

“She’s charging the other side as welcoming fraud and illegal voting. Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue to show you this,” Cavuto said as he cut off the press conference, pushing back on what he described as “explosive” charges from McEnany.

“Not so fast,” Cavuto added.

McEnany suggested, without evidence, that Democrats welcomed “fraud” and “illegal voting” in the 2020 election.

“We want every legal vote to be counted,” McEnany said, echoing President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that votes for President-elect Joe Biden were illegal.

Though multiple major news outlets, including Fox News, have declared Biden the projected winner of the 2020 election, Trump has refused to concede and is rejecting the results, claiming that he won the election.

Meanwhile, a number of world leaders have congratulated Biden on his victory, including UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Even before the end of voting on November 3, the president repeatedly signaled he would claim the election was “rigged” against him if he lost, but there is no evidence to substantiate such claims.
