Chuck Schumer and every Democrat in America is banking on victory this November.
If Democrats win Congress, they will move to impeach President Trump.
But Schumer’s victory parade was stopped dead in its tracks when these election results came in.
On Tuesday night, Indiana, Ohio, North Carolina, and West Virginia held their primary contests.
Pundits zeroed in on the Senate races in Ohio, Indiana, and West Virginia.
All three feature incumbent Democrats running for re-election in states Trump won by double digits.
Pundits who had been predicting a blue wave in November received a wakeup call when Republican enthusiasm in these primaries exceeded that of the Democrats.
Tuesday primaries saw a trend reversal on GOP turnout enthusiasm (great news for @NRSC and @tankcat):
-GOP turnout up 61% over 2014 (Dems up just 14%)
-GOP turnout up 43% over 2014
-GOP outperformed Dems in every single statewide race
-Turnout up 48% over 2014

This is a sign that the GOP base may be realizing the fact that the midterms are shaping up to be a good year for Democrats, so they need to do everything in their power to stop Schumer and Nancy Pelosi from seizing power.
And even more bad news for Schumer, pro-Trump outsiders Pat Morrisey and Mike Braun won the senate primaries in West Virginia and Indiana.
Both candidates fully embraced Trump and his Make America Great Again agenda and defeated candidates backed by Mitch McConnell and the GOP establishment.
Their presence in the race helped spike GOP turnout and proved that the roadmap for GOP electoral victories is the one President Trump laid out in 2016.
Morrisey and Braun oppose amnesty, support building the wall, and reject the globalist Bush wing of the GOP.
As pro-Trump outsiders, they represent the GOP’s best chances for victory in November.
If they can pull off victories, Democrats will have no chance to take back the Senate.
That means Republicans will continue to confirm Trump’s conservative judges which would block any effort by the Democrats to impeach the President.
