Chuck Schumer had to look twice when he saw the results of this poll

Democrats and their allies in the so-called “mainstream” media have been counting down the days until the November midterm elections.

They think it’s a shoe-in that Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi will be running Congress in 2019.

But Schumer and the rest of the Democrats did a double take when the results of a brand new poll began to circulate.

The latest Politico/Morning Consult survey found Republicans building momentum on voter’s perception of them handling issues like immigration, the economy, jobs and national security.

Breitbart reports:

“On the question of who voters trust more to handle key issues, voters have moved away from Democrats and towards Republicans…

June 2017: Democrats 40 / Republicans 42 — R+2

February 2018: Democrats 36 / Republicans 45 — R+9

Republican gain of +7

Job Creation
June 2017: D 40 / R 42 — R+2

February 2018: D 37 / R 43 — R+6

Republican gain of +4

National Security
June 2017: D 37 / R 43 — R+6

February 2018: D 33 / R 46 — R+13

Republican gain of +7

June 2017: D 40 / R 43 — R+3

February 2018: D 37 / R 43 — R+6

Republican gain of +3

June 2017: D 44 / R 34 — D+10

February 2018: D40 / R 36 — D+4

Republican gain of +6”

Democrats ended 2017 on a high note.

They thought the anti-Trump media accomplished their mission of turning the American people against the President.

Democrats would then ride a toxic political environment to victory in 2018.

But after Republicans in Congress passed Trump’s tax cut bill, Americans began to take stock of the booming economy and handed the credit to Trump and his policies.

The Democrats already face a difficult senate map.

They are defending 10 seats on states Trump won.

Any uptick in support for the President and his party will doom their chances of winning control of the Senate in November.
