Numerous Polls Show Major Democratic Advantage For 2018 Midterm Elections

At the time when the despicable Republican controlled 115th Congress has just passed the most reprehensible tax legislation in American history, with all GOP Senators, including those once thought to be opposed, supporting the legislation, and only 12 GOP House members from New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, and California voting against it, including five New York, four New Jersey, 1 North Carolina, and 2 Californians, there is a bright development.

Numerous public opinion polls are giving the opposition Democrats a major advantage for the 2018 Midterm elections.

A CNN poll shows an 18 point advantage for the Democrats.

A Quinnipiac poll shows an edge of 15 points for the Democrats.

A Monmouth poll shows the same 15 points edge for the Democrats.

A Marist poll gives the Democrats a 13 point lead.

And an NBC and Wall Street Journal polls gives the Democrats an 11 point lead.

It is traditional for the party not in the White House to gain seats and often control in the first midterm election of a President, with the major exception of 1934, and very minor changes in 1998 and 2002.

So the question is not whether the Democrats win the majority in both houses, but how much of a margin they might have, so they can attempt to reverse much of the damage perpetrated by Donald Trump and the Republican Party.

    I came across, at, an estimate of how electoral votes are liable to be re-allocated in the next decade. This would come from results from the 2020 U.S. Census. They would apply to the United States presidential elections of 2024 and 2028.

    • Gains (+9): Texas +3 (to 41 electoral votes); Florida +2 (to 31 electoral votes); North Carolina +1 (to 16 electoral votes); Arizona +1 (to 12 electoral votes); Colorado +1 (to 10 electoral votes); Oregon +1 (to 8 electoral votes.

    • Losses (–9): New York –1 (to 28 electoral votes); Illinois –1 (to 19 electoral votes); Pennsylvania –1 (to 19 electoral votes); Ohio –1 (to 17 electoral votes); Michigan –1 (to 15 electoral votes); Minnesota –1 (to 9 electoral votes); Alabama –1 (to 8 electoral votes); West Virginia –1 (to 4 electoral votes); Rhode Island –1 (to 3 electoral votes.
