Guess what? As totalitarians-posing-as-Democrats keep freaking out over the presidency of Donald Trump, Americans are getting pretty sick and tired of their hysteria. A new Washington Post poll conducted with ABC News attempted to measure voter enthusiasm as we go into the next cycle of elections. What they learned is that Trump supporters actually are more motivated after the past six months of leftist overreaction.
Aaron Blake at The Fix writes, that this poll should keep Democrats up at night:
History suggests the 2018 election will almost surely be a bad one for Republicans. Midterms are generally considered a referendum on the president, and the results are almost always bad for said president. Layer on the fact that President Trump is the most unpopular new president in the modern era, and it would seem to be — at least at this early juncture — a clear recipe for a Democratic wave.
The key word there being “seem.”
A new Washington Post-ABC News poll, as Mike DeBonis and Emily Guskin report, presents a pretty mixed bag for Democrats. It shows that registered voters say they want Democrats to control Congress to be a check on Trump by a 52-38 percent margin, but it also shows Democrats are — rather remarkably — less enthusiastic about voting than Republicans are. While 65 percent of Republicans and GOP-leaning adults say they are “almost certain to vote,” just 57 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning adults say the same.
Of course in "political time," 2018 is a long way from today. However, the poll is great news for Republicans. It seems that Democrats' fascist reaction to the President is not playing as well as in Peoria as they'd hoped.
