Top Democrats are showing increasing confidence in retaking a majority in the U.S House, but by how much?
Most sitting presidents lose in the midterms, but Democrats this year would have you believe it'll be a cake walk. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi wrote fellow Democrats they must “ be ready” because she has “every confidence” Democrats will reclaim the House.
“There's a lot of relatively silent people in the center, center-left and center-right, that aren't outspoken on a daily basis but do care and do vote, and I think those folks react negatively to people on the far-left and far-right, makes them react the other way,” says GOP donor Dan Eberhart, CEO of Canary drilling services.
“They're overconfidence on winning might backfire, and we might wake up to see the blue wave might be a bit smaller than everyone thinks.”
If Dems think the scandalous New York Times op-ed is the final straw for undecideds, Eberhart says think again. “The op-ed is a big nothing burger in terms I didn't really learn anything or feel like there's any new tidbit.”
And he believes last week's testimony against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh shows just how deranged the left really is.
“I really think it's harming the Democrats' overall message,” says Eberhart. “If anything, Sen. Cory Booker, D-NJ, comes back with self-inflicted wounds on a potential presidential campaign.”
