Liberals are gearing up for the 2018 midterm elections.

Both sides agree that the stakes could not be higher.

And Chuck Schumer used six words that revealed his biggest fear about the fall.

A Familiar Playbook

Every election season, Democrats play the politics of fear to scare voters into voting against Republicans.

Democrats usually complain that Republicans will take away social security, oppress minorities, and send women back to the Stone Age.

2018 is no different.

The Hosts of Marist Poll’s “Podcast Hub” interviewed Senate Democrat Leader Chuck Schumer and asked him about the upcoming fight in confirming Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Of course, Democrats make every Supreme Court fight about abortion.

The left holds Roe v. Wade as their most sacred victory.

So in typical fashion, Schumer stated that he believes Kavanaugh will vote to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Schumer declared, “I think what it is is we’ve had Roe for so long, and it’s been so much the part and fabric of American life that people think, ‘Well, no matter who’s on the Court, it’ll pretty much stay where it is.’ I don’t think that’s accurate. As you know Trump choose his twenty five, the list he choose from a list of twenty five composed by two groups, one The Heritage Foundation…and the other is The Federalist Society.”

Liberals like to demonize both The Heritage Foundation and The Federalist Society as shadowy and sinister forces in U.S. politics.

Schumer also claimed that Americans will rise up in opposition to Judge Kavanaugh once they know his true views on abortion.

“My view is this, if both the Senate and the American people become convinced that the confirmation of Kavanaugh will cut back on healthcare dramatically, will cut back on women’s freedom and women’s healthcare in particular that he will lose,” the New York Democrat concluded.

2018’s Message of Fear

The Senate is on pace to hold a confirmation hearing and a final vote on Judge Kavanaugh in the heat of the midterm election campaign.

Democrats know they are likely to lose this fight, but they need to be seen as pulling out all the stops.

Schumer and Nancy Pelosi cannot afford to see any dip in their base’s enthusiasm to vote.

Americans can expect to see Democrat’s ratcheting up the rhetoric surrounding Kavanaugh in order to frighten voters.

Democrats have been successful with this strategy in the past.

Barack Obama peddled the politics of fear to squash John McCain and Mitt Romney in the 2008 and 2012 Presidential campaigns.

Democrats are set to gain seats in 2018, so conservatives know it’s up to Donald Trump and Republican candidates to fight back.

Republicans ability to fend off liberal smears and energize their own base will determine whether there is a blue wave, or if the GOP can hang onto their majorities.
