  1. I truly hope this is a continuing sign of a blue wave coming in November. Problem is, the wave may very well come and take over but dissipate just as fast because of the chowder head idiocy often displayed by Dems. “Well, we don’t want to ruffle any feathers, so lets just be nice and sweet to our loving pals, the Repukes, because everything will turn out peachy in the end if we do. Now please excuse us whilst we bend over to get our daily dose of getting screwed.” Then, of course, the Repukes crucify the Dems in the next election because they’re blamed for being the weaklings they are. On the bright side, though, a lot of progressives are running and winning at the state and municipal levels. Hopefully that trend will move on up to the Federal positions, but, like Yoda would say, “My breath I’m holding not.”

This suggests that moderate Republican voters are having Trump-fatigue, and that the larger electorate is shifting to the left.
