Heckuva job, Nancy and Chuck: RED WAVE coming with Republicans now +1 on generic ballot

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

And the Republicans take the lead on the generic ballot!

Whoa: New Politico/Morning Consult poll shows REPUBLICANS leading on the generic for the first time in what seems like ages. R+1 edge. https://t.co/cbE5nzOpXG

President Donald Trump’s approval is up, too:

Trump job approval up to 47 percent, the best I can recall in any non-Ras poll since his inauguration.

Reminder that the more media covers uniquely Trumpian things (i.e. WH chaos), the better Rs seem to do.

From Politico:

Republicans have erased the Democratic advantage on the generic congressional ballot in a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll that, for the first time since April, also shows President Donald Trump’s approval rating equaling the percentage of voters who disapprove of his job performance.

Fully 39 percent of registered voters say they would support the GOP candidate for Congress in their district, while 38 percent would back the Democratic candidate. Nearly a quarter of voters, 23 percent, are undecided.

Paul Ryan is doing better as well:

Paul Ryan’s favorability has recovered since 2017 lows, now at 36/40. Pelosi still widely unpopular at 28/49. https://t.co/cbE5nzOpXG

Even worse for Dems? They barely lead on health care:

This is also something that shd alarm Ds, given how central health care will be to their midterm messaging.

“The Democratic advantage on health care has dwindled to just 4 percentage points, down from double digits last year.” https://t.co/cbE5nzOpXG

Heckuva job, Nancy and Chuck.

But with that said, polls =/= turnout. Dems won a special election in a Trump district yesterday in Florida:

How big was the Democrat’s win in Florida’s bellwether HD72?

✅It was held by an R in a GOP county

✅Rs outnumber Ds by 12k voters, or 10 percentage points there

✅Trump carried it by 4.6% (but won FL by 1.2%)

✅Good just won by 7.4 points
