This is the Democrat party platform? To investigate the President because the Dems stll have not gotten over 2016? Incredible.
The important power is in the Senate – judicial nominees, SCOTUS etc — the gains for us in the Senate are crucial. The Democrat House will be a pain in the ass. The Democrats will work to undermine the President. Perhaps impeachment. What else is new? My money is on Trump.
The party out of power generally takes the House. In a historical context, Trump fared very well. Obama lost 64 House.seats and 12 Senate seats. George Bush lost 30.
As for the Republican party, the blame lies with the anti-Trumpers. We had the House and still Trump couldn’t repeal Obamacare or pass immigration reform because of the different factions in the Rep party.
The 2018 midterm election wasn’t a disaster for Donald Trump like it usually is for the president’s party: Republicans strengthened their control over the Senate even as the lost command of the House for the first time in eight years.
How unusual is that? It’s only the third time in the past 104 years that the party holding the White House has gained seats in the Senate in a mid-term election while losing seats the House. The same split outcome also occurred in 1970, 1962 and 1914.
Historically the party in the White House has lost a badly in midterm elections, especially when a president’s job-approval rating was below 50% as it is now with Trump. The president’s party has lost an average of 37 seats since the end of World War Two.
