Conservatives are spinning things now to promote a "Red Wave" in the midterms

"If Thereís a Red Wave Election in 2018, This Will Be Why"

<snip>

Mr. Trump isnít on the ballot, but the ideas that animate the current conservative renaissance are. They are represented by some interesting Senate candidates, who have quite different biographies but common goals. Josh Hawley in Missouri is a Stanford- and Yale-educated lawyer who clerked for Chief Justice John Roberts, while Matt Rosendale in Montana is a rancher-turned-politician. Both are running on a platform of returning power to the people and nurturing a sense of community and solidarity among Americans that many Republican politicians either ignored or openly disdained.

WTF is this nonsense about the GOP "returning the power to the people" being espoused by him? If there is a RED WAVE in the midterms, it will be because the Russian authoritarian kleptocrats - whom we used to refer to as the REDS (including Donald the dumpster) - will have stolen the elections just as they did in 2016.

Just more BS lies they tell their base. If wishes were fishes, we would all swim in the sea.

2. 2018 is a unique election as now democrats/progressives/liberals are the angry voters and the fact

is, we out number the republicans and we are PISSED with NO chance of getting UNPISSED...hell be donor republicans are giving out money to republican candidate....a very bad sign for the "red wave"...

if republicans want to use "saving trump" as a campaign issue. I think that brings MORE democratic voters out to vote....so go for it

3. It's nothing but an attempt to convince their base that everything is okay.

Incumbents almost ALWAYS lose seats in midterms, and thatís even when the president is popular. The worst case for Democrats in November is that they donít flip as many seats as they want to. But with a president as unpopular as Trump and with the way special elections have been going across the country, any idea of a Red Wave happening is pure fantasy. Democrats are going to pick up seats in the House. Itís just a matter of itíll be 20, 40, more or something between.

7. Not hard to figure out....

The Russians ARE coming. And their enablers in the Republican party are setting up the narrative to explain away obvious election fraud and Russian interference.
