All eyes in the political world are quickly shifting to the 2018 midterm elections.

Who will control Congress?

Historically, whichever party is out of power makes significant gains during the midterm elections.

And the Democrats need to win just 25 seats to retake the majority in the House.

Nancy Pelosi was recently asked about the Democrats’ chances and she gave a stunning prediction.

Politico reports:

“House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Sunday the chances of Democrats taking back the majority in the House of Representatives in midterm elections is getting “better and better” during the Trump administration.

“I’ve never in my years in politics seen so much enthusiasm,” Pelosi told “ABC This Week.”

“History is on our side,” Pelosi said, noting changes in House majorities under former Presidents Bill Clinton (1994), George W. Bush (2006) and Barack Obama (2010).”

And there are warning signs that Paul Ryan and House Republican Leadership are trying to tank the election.

Ryan and establishment Republicans are already tanking Trump’s agenda in Congress.

They have refused to pass a bill to repeal Obamacare.

And Ryan sold out on Trump with a budget deal to fund the government until September.

The bill includes funding for Planned Parenthood, Obamacare, the National Institute of Health, and every other Democratic legislative priority.

Missing from the spending bill were any Republican initiatives.

Not only did the bill not include one penny for a border wall, but it explicitly said Trump couldn’t use any existing money to begin construction of the wall.

Democrats were giddy over their victory.

Conservatives were furious.

Continued sellouts of the Trump agenda could cost Republicans control of the House.

McClatchy reports:

“The party’s center-right incumbents face a different problem. Cooperation with Democrats could be to their advantage, but the party’s internal squabbles could depress enthusiasm among the GOP base, said Kyle Kondik, a political analyst at the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics.

“Democrats are more likely to turn out because they are mad, and the flip side” is that maybe Republicans, if they are not getting what they want from a Republican-led Congress and Trump, become even less likely to turn out, Kondik said.

Depressed turnout at the polls could hurt the 23 Republicans in districts carried by Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016, including Rep. Carlos Curbelo of Florida and Kevin Yoder of Kansas. Republicans currently control 238 seats in the House of Representatives, with 218 needed for a majority.”

If Paul Ryan continues to function as the Democrat leader in the House, the chance that fed-up Republicans will stay home in 2018 will be inevitable – and Nancy Pelosi will be the next Speaker of the House.
