The midterm election is right around the corner.
And Chuck Schumer is panicking.
That’s because his worst nightmare just came true and he knows the Democrats are finished.
Red State Democrats On Defense
Democrats are defending ten Senate seats in red states that Donald Trump won.
A month ago, Democrats thought these seats were safe.
They believed they could ride the anti-Trump anger to victory.
But that’s all changed.
First, the Democrats’ conduct during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings unified the GOP.
Many Americans believed they used women making up stories about sexual misconduct to smear Kavanaugh and stop his confirmation.
Every Democrat except one voted against Kavanaugh.
And the one Democrat that did vote “yes” only did so once the GOP had enough votes to confirm him.
Second, Democrats tried to pretend thousands of migrants in a caravan were not trying to invade America.
This caravan threatens to overrun the border when it reaches America in a matter of weeks.
Republicans saw Democrats supporting open borders, so their enthusiasm to turn out and vote grew even more.
Since the Senate will be decided in red states, that worked against the Democrats.
Polls showed the fortunes of Democrats in Indiana, North Dakota, Missouri, Montana and Michigan all taking a hit as Republican candidates began to surge in the polls.
Red State Democrats Lie To Win Re-Election
Red state Democrats see the ground shifting under their feet and realize they only have one card left to play.
They need to shamelessly lie about their records to fool voters.
Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill went on Fox News and ranted about “crazy Democrats.”
“The crazy Democrats are the people who walk into restaurants and scream in elected officials’ faces. The crazy Democrats are — we have a state senator here in Missouri that actually advocated for the assassination of President Trump,” McCaskill told Fox.
She also attacked Elizabeth Warren.
“Well, I would say this, I would not call my colleagues crazy,” the Missouri Democrat told Fox host Bret Baier. “But Elizabeth Warren sure went after me when I advocated tooling back some of the regulations for small banks and credit unions. I certainly disagree with Bernie Sanders on a bunch of stuff.”
But Missouri voters have tuned her out.
Once she voted against Judge Kavanaugh, it crystallized in their minds that she was nothing more than a Chuck Schumer puppet.
Josh Hawley – her Republican challenger – hammered down on this point.
“The choice is between what you voted for in 2016,” Hawley declared, “and the radical left agenda that Claire McCaskill and her liberal allies like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi want to impose on this country. That’s what’s at stake.”
Voters Ignore Democrats Claims Of Independence
Indiana Democrat Joe Donnelly is also in trouble after he voted against Judge Kavanaugh.
Before that vote, polls showed him leading Republican challenger Mike Braun.
However, Braun surged into the lead and now Donnelly is scrambling.
Donnelly suddenly is claiming he would support Donald Trump’s effort to end birthright citizenship.
Voters know it’s fake news though.
If Democrats win the Senate, Chuck Schumer will not allow any votes on legislation to end birthright citizenship.
Red state Democrats can lie all day about how “independent” they are.
But everyone knows that if the Democrats win the Senate, Chuck Schumer gives the orders.
And that is tilting the Senate map in the GOP’s favor.
