"Trump, stung by midterms and nervous about Mueller, retreats from traditional presidential duties"

For weeks this fall, an ebullient President Trump traveled relentlessly to hold raise-the-rafters campaign rallies — sometimes three a day — in states where his presence was likely to help Republicans on the ballot.

But his mood apparently has changed as he has taken measure of the electoral backlash that voters delivered Nov. 6. With the certainty that the incoming Democratic House majority will go after his tax returns and investigate his actions, and the likelihood of additional indictments by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, Trump has retreated into a cocoon of bitterness and resentment, according to multiple administration sources.

Behind the scenes, they say, the president has lashed out at several aides, from junior press assistants to senior officials. “He’s furious,” said one administration official. “Most staffers are trying to avoid him.”

The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, painted a picture of a brooding president “trying to decide who to blame” for Republicans’ election losses, even as he publicly and implausibly continues to claim victory.

This was so enjoyable to read. Another poster mentioned that after his furious campaigning in the final month, to see everything collapse and the blue wave wash over Washington, he probably feels like a loser.

So, what's going on with that caravan?

Strange that once midterms happened, Trump and Fox have gone completely silent.

NOBODY saw that coming...

In tweet, Trump tosses conspiracy theory in Arizona election, floats idea of new election

Someone let him know that this is a state election, which the federal government has no control over.

I think the October Surprise just happened.

Independents are going to swing hard, HARD for Democratic candidates now.

Watch the New York Times live poll of the Florida Gov and Florida Senate races here.

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/upshot/elections-poll-flgov-3.html

This is really interesting to watch. You can use the little scroll at the top right corner to flip between races. One thing I'm noticing, there's a lot of enthusiasm for Gillum that isn't always translating to Nelson. There have been several people that said they're voting Gillum, but are undecided in the Senate race.

Is there any truth to this MSNBC article that just came out?

Seems kind of bizarre, considering Democrats typically dominate early voting, and this is a year when Democrats are extremely fired up.

Florida early voters, please let us know what you see.

In terms of turnout, any lines, what number you were to vote, etc.

Please and thank you!

Trump is having a rally in Montana...and not a single news network, including Fox, is showing it.

That's called progress.

ICYMI: Internal GOP Poll: 'We've Lost the Messaging Battle' on Tax Cuts

A survey commissioned by the Republican National Committee has led the party to a glum conclusion regarding President Donald Trump’s signature legislative achievement: Voters overwhelmingly believe his tax overhaul helps the wealthy instead of average Americans.

By a 2-to-1 margin -- 61 percent to 30 percent -- respondents said the law benefits “large corporations and rich Americans” over “middle class families,” according to the survey, which was completed on Sept. 2 by the GOP firm Public Opinion Strategies and obtained by Bloomberg News.

The result was fueled by self-identified independent voters who said by a 36-point margin that large corporations and rich Americans benefit more from the tax law -- a result that was even more lopsided among Democrats. Republican voters said by a 38-point margin that the middle class benefits more.

“Voters are evenly divided on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act,” the RNC-commissioned report said. “But, we’ve lost the messaging battle on the issue.”
