2018 elections could be a disaster for Democrats: report

Could the 2018 mid-term elections see Republicans riding the wave of a Donald Trump presidential victory?

Well, according to Newsweek, more dark days for the left may be on the horizon.

Democratic incumbents could see themselves replaced by GOP candidates in regions where Trump defeated Hillary Clinton, according to Thursday's report, as Dems must defend 25 of their 48 seats in 2018, while Republicans only need to hold onto just 8 of their 52.

As an effort to jumpstart their 2018 efforts, Democrats recently introduced a rebranded agenda, along with a new slogan: "A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages."

The new fresh coat of paint has been met with mixed reviews, especially the slogan, which among other things has been critisied as sounding more like a Papa John's slogan than a political party's.

Poll analysis site FiveThirtyEight doesn't seem to have good news for Democrats in 2018 saying, "Even if Democrats were to win every single 2018 House and Senate race for seats representing places that Hillary Clinton won or that Trump won by less than 3 percentage points—a pretty good midterm by historical standards—they could still fall short of the House majority and lose five Senate seats."
