Democrats may be sweating a little more after seeing a new poll concerning the 2018 mid-term elections.
For all the talk about the possibility of the GOP losing control of the U.S. Senate to the Democrats in November, if the election were held today it would be the Democrats who would be in real trouble, according to new Axios/SurveyMonkey polls.This includes Indiana.
If the poll holds up, five incumbent Senate Democrats would lose to Republican candidates; three have approval ratings under 50%.
All five states where Democrats are in trouble now show strong support for President Trump in the Axios/Survey Monkey polls. (Indiana, Montana, West Virginia, North Dakota, Missouri).
In Indiana, where Trump’s approval rating was 53%, Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly was down six points, 45%-51%, to a generic GOP candidate. Dems have VERY SLIGHT LEADS in Wisconsin, Michigan and Ohio, however all are within a few points. Democrats need to pick up two seats in the Senate in addition to the 49 they now hold to win a majority; they are defending 10 Senate seats in states that President Trump won in 2016.
Rob Kendall lives and breathes for the Indiana senate race, so Hammer and Nigel talked to him about the poll and how it affects Indiana.
“This poll shows you, if you just nominate a rational, normal, somewhat coherent human being who doesn’t say that ‘rape is what god intended’, or who doesn’t follow around 14-year-olds at a mall, he’s going to win.”
