At 11:59 pm this evening, you will see the beginning of the end of the Democrat Party as we know it. Come November 2018, the shellacking they will take for closing the government down to protect illegals over Americans will be epic.
Even the WAPO is telling them you are about to commit political suicide. The Democrats are the gift that keeps on giving. They have blown themselves up by having not one single Democrat vote in favor of the Tax Reform Bill that has already been paying off BIGLY for millions of Americans.
Richard Baris from PPD is absolutely right that this newest poll is DEVASTATING for Democrats!
From the article linked above:
With numerous gauges of consumer optimism hitting all-time highs and U.S. companies announcing tax reform-related bonuses, wage increases and other benefits, American workers are more confident than ever that they will get a salary boost in the near future. The percentage of full-time American workers who expect wage increases by the end of the year is now at the highest level ever recorded since tracking began in April 2009.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 54% of American adults who work full-time believe they will be earning more money a year from today, up from 46% in August and the highest percentage ever. That includes 61% of men and 46% of women.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) monthly jobs report for the Labor Department, unemployment among black Americans is at the lowest level ever record. Now, 54% of whites, 44% of black Americans and 56% of other minority groups expect wage increases.
From the article linked above:
The good news for President Donald Trump and the bad news for amnesty-advocates was buried in the last paragraph of the article, which is based on a poll conducted for Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer:
If Democrats can make this looming shutdown about Trump and his ability to govern, they will be in a strong position to win the fight nationally and help the “Big Five [Democratic Senators]” hold their own.
If Republicans can make it about immigration, the victory is probably theirs.
But the public view shifts if voters think the government is shuttering because of the immigration issue, particularly in five states that Trump won in 2018 by overwhelming margins and where Democratic senators face reelection in November: Indiana, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota and West Virginia.
In those five states, voters split the shutdown blame evenly between Trump and Democrats. That result shifts, 48 percent to 39 percent, onto Democratic shoulders if the DACA issue is what led to the shutdown.
Democrats have already shown they fear a public punishment for the amnesty push by trying to portray the shutdown as a dispute over healthcare funding.
The Post article ignores two critical issues.
First, Schumer’s polling likely understates the public’s hostility to immigration because many voters are loath to admit they worry about the economic impact of migrants, even as they are also eager to show that they like immigrants in general. That polling split is commonplace and is usually ignored by Democrats — including by Schumer during his disastrous 2013/4 “Gang of Eight” amnesty push which demoted him to the minority in 2014.
Second, regardless of the promising polling data, GOP leaders really do not want to fight the 2018 election over immigration because their donors do not want them to validate public opposition to cheap-labor migration.
