Poll: Scott holds slim lead over Nelson in Florida Senate race
Democrats' lead is slipping in generic ballot poll
The media is unrelentingly negative commonly calling Trump deranged and implying that he should be forced into a mental health examination because he is not competent to act as President. Every action is scrutinized by the vast Ship of Fools at MSNBC, CNN, NBC, ABC, NYT, WSJ, and the other lunatics in the alphabet soup brigade.
Midterm elections nearly always cut against the party in power, mainly where one party controls both the legislature and the executive branches.
More importantly, both the Democratic Party and the Republican Party have stymied Trump's agenda. What makes this the more comical is they try but seldom can resist Trump's persuasion powers. He appeals to the people through his Tweets while the do nothing politicians try to stop progress, the result is the people frequently demand the politicians vote with Trump. This pro Trump pressure galls Democrats to no end.
Even so, the progressive politicians of both parties have fought hard to limit the Trump revolution.
Still, Trump's list of accomplishments is long and storied. He is indefatigable; they are not. He powers on, they simper and whinge behind the scenes.

The Trump foreign policy has driven the world far beyond what anyone thought possible just two years ago. Of course, we were burdened with the incompetence of the fickle dandy Obama so low expectations were to be expected.
It is becoming increasingly clear to the Democrats on the ground that their party is deranged and broke. Accordingly, they are bushwacking their way, hoping beyond hope they can hold onto their seats.

Finally, does any sentient person believe the polls any longer? The last many elections showed that they were consistently wrong, commonly favoring the Democratic candidates and disfavoring the Republican. I am not attributing this to malice, but it seems that the polling firms have a poor understanding of the electoral mix, and it seems likely that the people they need to poll among the classical liberals, libertarians, conservatives, and independents are lacking. The result is the poll results wrongly increase the results for Democratic candidates and decrease the results for Republican candidates.
As I said, Dems should be up by 35 points based on the hammering President Trump has taken and the deluge of outright lies he suffers on a daily basis.

We are months away from the mid-term election, and the Democratic candidates are in serious trouble. New 2018 Polls: These Five Vulnerable Senate Democrats Are in Serious Trouble Trump has been successfully moving his agenda, particularly the foreign policy aspects. The recent Trump tax reforms will continue to invigorate the economy, and there is little doubt that Trump's successes will continue.
The media narrative has shifted from - Hitler!!! to - Incompetent!!! to - Well, he has had a few achievements, but they were all BAD!!! to - Scandal, scandal, scandal!!! After a while, the people will tune out the media altogether. The press is clueless, and always wrong, why listen to them.
The Democrats only hope is that Trump will suddenly have a stroke, become terminally incompetent, er, a Dem miracle.
My prediction is that Trump will not stroke out or become incompetent, and there will be no Democrat miracle. Instead, he will continue to rack up successes, and the American middle will increasingly accept that he is competent and achieving highly positive results. All of the incentives are for the American middle to want more Trump. As the mid-term election approaches, the candidates Trump campaigns for will begin to see an electoral boost. This election will run counter to the expectations of a Blue Wave mid-term election.
Get ready for red.
