All of the talk of a “blue wave” in next month’s election was based on the idea that Democrats were fired up to vote with anti-Trump rage while Republicans would just follow the standard precedent and stay home in the first off-year election of a new Republican President’s term.  But believers in the conventional wisdom seem to have forgotten how Donald Trump already shattered it.

Trump’s stunning success in turning around the Obama economy, along with the violent, belligerent, threatening ways in which the left has chosen to express its rage at being out of power, have actually fired up enthusiasm to vote among those on the right.  They like strong growth, more job opportunities and higher wages, and don’t feel like letting a bunch of angry leftists slam the brakes on all that real progress just because they’re having an epic tantrum.

Example: Today, President Trump will host a rally in Houston for Ted Cruz.  We were led by the media to believe that Texans were coo-coo for Beto.  But after the Trump rally got over 100,000 RSVPs, it had to be converted from a stadium rally into the world’s biggest tailgate party. 

Also, a new poll by Hill.TV and HarrisX polling found that 90% of registered voters say they either plan to vote or already have voted.  If true, that would be an astounding level of turnout for a midterm election.  A Washington Post/ABC poll found 76% of voters said they are “absolutely certain to vote,” and that number is 11 points higher than the 2014 midterms.

Of course, it’s hard to predict whether that level of turnout will benefit Republicans or Democrats.  But if you don’t want to reward mob behavior, reverse all the economic gains of the past two years, and bring back America-last foreign policy, then the best way to prevent that is with 100% turnout of the Republican vote.  And it’s easier than ever: early voting has already started in some states, and it begins this week in others.  For a schedule of early voting dates by state, click the link.  Then go vote!

    Shut down the southern bridges, protect the border with military and sanction countries involved because 'someone' paid them.

    At the risk of sounding legalistic, could we please remember that Mr. Trump's success is of "divine design"? He would not be where he is without the direct, explicit intervention of God. My point....all glory to God!!!! 2 Chronicles 7:14 "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."

    I grew up in Utah, but we raised our kids in NJ. Needless to say, our outlook differs somewhat because of the influence of the East coast on my kids education. My daughter now lives in NY and it's amazing viewpoints you miss when you don't watch Fox and read the New York Times. My point is, I hope enough of the voters have come to understand how vile the people have become under the influence of the Clintons, of Nancy Pelosi, Waters, Shumer. We Cannot have these people back in power. Please God, help the people vote Red. It's absolutely vital.

    Already voted absentee ballot; all GOP votes. So crucial for conservatives to vote this midterm. In all of my 73 years, I've never seen such a violent and unhinged Democratic party. Several of my democratic friends are switching to the much calmer right.
