Notes on Trump 37 – midterms almost over

For what it is worth I still assume most pundits are right in guessing slightly increased and more Trumpist majority in Senate and small Democrat majority in House.

But “small” is really too close to call either way for House.

Daily voter approval polls currently fluctuating around 50% for and against Trump:

I would have expected both sides to try harder to avoid having majority in House.

Cannot tell whether Democrat pathetic campaign is intentional or they just cannot help themselves.

GOP focus is on Senate but they could still end up with another 2 years of majority in both houses plus Supreme Court and President. That would make it harder in 2020 to blame Democrats for Trump not having achieved much.

Trump doesn’t seem able to focus hard on losing while Democrats can do that by instinct. Though he has managed to not say as much about economy as he would if he actually WANTED more GOP and less Democrats in House because he does need the opposite for ease of pre-2020 deficits infrastructure spending and healthcare plus still being able to rant about building wall and he DOES know it. Just cannot put his heart and soul into losing.

Meanwhile John Stewart has some sound advice for liberal journos, but they don’t seem capable of getting it, let alone acting onn it:
