It appears that the midterms could be a bloodbath.

With their supporters energized in opposition to Donald Trump, Democrats hold their widest advantage in midterm election vote preferences since 2006, when they seized control of both houses of Congress.

Rebounding from a tighter contest in the spring, Democratic House candidates now lead their Republican opponents nationally by 52-38 percent among registered voters in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll – a lead that holds up across a range of likely voter models.

Surpassing that Democratic lead in vote choice, 60 percent of registered voters say they’d rather see the next Congress controlled by the Democrats, as a check on Trump, than by the GOP, to support Trump’s agenda. Preference for Democratic control is up 8 points from a year ago.

The Democrats’ advantage reflects Trump’s broad unpopularity. As reported Friday, 36 percent of Americans approve of his job performance, the lowest approval rating for a president heading into his first midterms in polling dating to 1954. Next closest were Jimmy Carter’s 42 percent in 1978; Barack Obama and Bill Clinton at 46 percent in 2010 and 1994, respectively; and Ronald Reagan’s 48 percent in 1982.

Midterms are rarely a good time for the party in control of the White House, but thanks to Donald Trump’s insane and likely criminal behaviors this year could break all kinds of records for Democratic turnout. 

Let’s make that happen, shall we?

    OT/ 1998 “It wasn’t until I saw him running for president that I realized I’d been played. That he got his way. And I thought, ‘Wow, he manipulated that whole situation. This guy is not stupid.’ Lesson learned.” “The first time Michael Moore encountered Donald Trump, the filmmaker uncharacteristically held his tongue. The two had been booked as guests in 1998 on Roseanne Barr’s afternoon talk show” ” His 2004 anti-Bush diatribe, Fahrenheit 9/11, remains the top-grossing documentary of all time ($222.4 million worldwide),” NOW 11/9
    ” Moore asks bluntly, “How the fuck did this happen?” “he acknowledges factors like Russian President Vladimir Putin and former FBI head James Comey, but asserts that the person most responsible for the Trump presidency is … Gwen Stefani. “You hadn’t heard that before, have you?” Moore asks, delighted with the audacity of the claim.

    Moore posits that when Trump realized Stefani’s performance fees as a coach on The Voice were larger than his own on The Apprentice, he staged his now-infamous Trump Tower campaign announcement to prove his popularity to NBC, which aired both shows. , “He’d been talking about running for president since 1988, but he didn’t really want to be president. There’s no penthouse in the White House. And he doesn’t want to live in a black city. He was trying to pit NBC against another network, but it just went off the rails.”

    ” “He hates Wall Street because they hate him,” Moore says. “He has never been let into the billionaires’ club. He is treated like a MOOK from Queens.”
    ” “It comes from a book, Friendly Fascism, by a philosopher named Bertram Gross. He talks about how the fascism of the 21st century would not be like the fascism of the 20th century. It would not come with concentration camps and swastikas, but with a TV show and a smiley face. The fascists of the 21st century will convince the people to go against their own interests by using television and branding. I don’t think we should be afraid to call this out for what it is.””

    ” 2004 election, as he tells it, he organized a dinner in New York with then-comedian Al Franken and his wife, Susan Sarandon and her then-partner, Tim Robbins, Bob Balaban and a few other Hollywood leftists. The purpose was to convince Franken to return to his home state of Minnesota and run for the Senate. Franken heard Moore out, and a few days afterward called back to say he’d decided to do it.

    “I was so excited,” Moore says. And when, a few months later, Franken called to ask him to serve as a fundraiser, Moore readily agreed. “There’s just one problem,” Franken said, according to Moore. Instead of sending any checks directly to his campaign, could Moore send them to the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor party, because — here Moore imitates Franken — “it won’t look good when it comes out that Michael Moore and his lefty friends are contributing to my election.” Moore says his heart sank, he didn’t send a check, and it was nearly a decade before the two talked” “Moore’s first attempt to make a Trump doc hit a wall. In May 2017>
    “the Weinsteins’ commitment — a reported $2 million — failed to materialize. “Of course, now we know what the problem was,” says Moore. Five weeks later, The New York Times published its first story with allegations of Harvey Weinstein’s long history of predatory sexual abuse. “We laid off everybody and had to bury the film.” Moore says he was unaware himself of Weinstein’s behavior: “Harvey being the evil genius that he is, found a way so that people did not know, but eventually people like him don’t get away with it. And that’s going to be true of Trump, too.”” “Fahrenheit 9/11 certainly benefited from a moment in time — if you opposed the war and you opposed Bush, one way to vote was to buy a ticket. And Fahrenheit 11/9 also comes at a specific moment in time. If you oppose Trump and you oppose the Trump agenda, one way to express that is to buy a ticket.” AGC Studios’ Stuart Ford, who plans to launch foreign sales once the movie debuts, says, “Awareness among foreign distributors is already sky-high. Michael is definitely a brand as a filmmaker and as a philosopher.”

    What is happening…
    ““Would it surprise you if you got an email saying that you got that from somebody spying?” Kavanaugh asked.

    “Well, is there such an email senator? I mean, I don’t know, That’s the, uh, yeah” Kavanaugh said.

    “Well, we’d have to ask the chairman what he has in his confidential material,” Leahy said.

    At that point, Grassley erupted for the second time in two days.

    “Hey, just stop a minute here!” he yelled at Leahy. “You’re talking about the period of time he was White House counsel, that material is available to everybody.”

    “So that bit of the material about him that’s marked committee confidential?” Leahy asked. “If that’s what the chairman’s saying we have a whole new series of questions.””
