Rasmussen Polling Drops Bomb: Is Another Silent Red Wave Coming?
Democrat politicians are already measuring drapes in the Speaker’s office.
Democrats are confident they will take control of the US House in a landslide.
These are the same people who thought Hillary Clinton would defeat Donald Trump in a landslide.
FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver polling says Democrats have an 84.8% chance of taking the US House of Representatives.
FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver also gave Hillary Clinton a 72% chance of winning the 2016 election.
But as The Gateway Pundit has reported — Democrats and their liberal media may be overconfident.
The results so far show a Red Wave Rising.
Rasmussen polling reported:
Just as in 2016, Democrats are more outspoken about how they’re going to vote in the upcoming elections than Republicans and unaffiliated voters are.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 60% of Likely Democratic Voters say they are more likely to let others know how they intend to vote this year compared to previous congressional elections. This compares to 49% of Republicans and 40% of voters not affiliated with either major political party. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
In August 2016, 52% of Democrats were more likely to let others know how they intended to vote in the upcoming presidential election, compared to 46% of Republicans and 34% of unaffiliated voters. Some analysts before and after Donald Trump’s upset victory suggested that most pollsters missed his hidden support among voters fearful of criticism who were unwilling to say where they stood.
Similarly when asked now about family, friends and co-workers, 60% of Democrats say they are also more likely to tell others how they intend to vote, but only 46% of Republicans and 45% of unaffiliated voters agree.
Republicans are less likely to discuss how they are voting. The liberal pollsters have not figured out how to configure this with their polling numbers.
