Democrats had counted on a blue wave in 2018.
But now they are in panic.
That’s because one new poll has Democrats running for their lives.
To win back the Senate, Democrats need to flip two Republican held seats and not have one of the ten red state Democrat incumbents lose a race.
Democrats figured they stood strong chances to seize GOP held seats in Arizona and Nevada because of those states sizable Hispanic populations.
But the left just got some bad news.
A new Emerson College poll found 62 percent of Hispanics believed they were better off with Donald Trump as President than Barack Obama.
The Daily Caller reports:
A majority of Americans, including 62 percent of Hispanics, feel they are better off with President Donald Trump in office than former President Barack Obama, according to a mid-year ePoll put out by Emerson College on Monday.
When asked their feelings on whether they are better off or worse off financially under a Trump economy, 42 percent of voters said they believe they are better off while only 26 percent feel they are worse off.
Perceptions of the current financial situation varied by party and race, according to the poll. Of Hispanics polled, 62 percent said they believe they are better off under Trump, and 21 percent feel they are worse off. African Americans had a reverse perspective, with 30 percent feeling they are better off and 40 percent feeling they are worse off under Trump.
This is bad news for Democrats on multiple fronts.
Not only would these results put Republicans in stronger positions to hold Arizona and Nevada, but it increases their likelihood of flipping Democrat Bill Nelson’s seat in Florida.
Any GOP pickups close off the opportunity for Democrats to win back the Senate and choke off President Trump’s agenda.
