When the New York Times Says Democrats Are In Trouble

When the sycophantic fanboys of the Democratic Party start predicting electoral disaster, the Democrats really must be in trouble.On page A1 (that’s the front page for those of you in Rio Linda), Jeff Zeleny and Adam Nagourney spell DOOM for the Democrats in 1,317 words.

The fight for the midterm elections is not confined to traditional battlegrounds, where Republicans and Democrats often swap seats every few cycles. In the Senate, Democrats are struggling to hold on to, among others, seats once held by President Obama and Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. Democrats are preparing to lose as many as 30 House seats — including a wave of first-term members — and Republicans have expanded their sights to places where political challenges seldom develop.

In 1994, Republicans were up 5 points in the generic ballot against Democrats. This year the GOP is already at 10 points and going up. I have said it before and I will say it again. In 2008, independents voted for Barack Obama to prove they were not racists but were tired of Bush. Ever since they’ve been voting Republican to prove they are not socialists either.The Democrats have overplayed their hand and now the voters will beat them like a drum come November.
