They did well in the 2010 and 2014 midterms, however it was more a result of the democrats marching off a political cliff with obamacare and illegal immigration then anything the republicans have offered. They have been given a chance. If they fight to repeal or otherwise undo the worst aspect of obamacare and and fight hard to overturn Obama's unconstitutional EO in regards to illegal immigrants, they might keep their majorities. If not, will slowly fade like they did after 1994.
    Indeed. If they can't remember why they are there I want em gone. Let it serve as a reminder to whom they represent.

    [QUOTE=Jack Hays;1064102671]I think McConnell is going to be a game-changer running the Senate.

    I consider McConnell to be a RINO. However he will at least let bills and riders come to the floor for a vote. He will not table everything he is against like Reid has done.

    Assuming that the poll is accurate, it shows how stupid the uninformed centrists are since the GOP has not done anything to deserve a higher approval level yet. It seems that they are like the sports fans who only support a team when it is winning.

    How absurd. Popular opinion and election results do not change the relevant facts. Both the economy and employment are expanding at an above average pace.

    And the average American's net worth is in the ****ter. People aren't forgetting, like it or not.

    A deflection, but that's quite the overstatement nonetheless. Cumulative net worth is at an all time high, while median and average net worth is largely unchanged from 2009/10. There's no credible data to support the notion that personal wealth is anywhere near the "****ter."

    I'd be very surprised if they could pull that off.

    There's a good chance we'll be looking at 2006-style corruption all over again.
    I fight against the ignorant, irresponsible, and/or closed-minded.
    This group is the worst enemy of America and its freedoms. It includes, but is not limited to, all Trump supporters.
