The media has spent 2018 hyping the idea of a “blue wave” in the midterm elections.
Journalists expect the American people to turn against President Trump and elect Democrats in a historic landslide.
But one brand new poll just crushed those dreams.
A new NBC/Survey Monkey poll released in the wake of the battle over family separations at the border and Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement shows Donald Trump’s political fortunes improving.
The poll finds the President holding a 48 percent job approval rating and the generic ballot shows the Democrats clinging to a three point lead.

Those numbers suggest Republicans are in a strong position to hold on to their majorities in both Houses of Congress – and may even gain seats in the Senate.
The poll also shows the media’s continued futility in trying to destroy President Trump.
They zero in on the designated “scandal of the week” and focus the intensity of their coverage on what they believe will be the most damaging aspect of the story to Trump.
Journalists tried this with family separations at the border.
They thought the American people would see Trump as a Nazi and rise up against him.
But that failed because Donald Trump’s policy of enforcing existing immigration laws is the mainstream thinking in America.
It’s the media’s support for open borders that is fringe nonsense.
The media proved they were out of touch with America when they failed to accurately cover the 2016 election.
But instead of correcting their mistakes, they are doubling down on their bias and opposition to Donald Trump in a failed attempt to drive him from office.
