Stunning Politico story. Celinda Lake says Trump has kept his promises, says voters agree with Trump on trade and the economy and hate the Ds for attacking him. See them as obstuctionist. But read between the lines: if Lake, a big time D pollster, is saying this PUBLICLY, privately the news must be much, much worse. Personally I think the Ds in 2018 are heading for an Extinction Level Event. The voter registrations show this, the popularity of Moore in AL, Kid Rock in MI, combined with the UNpopularity of FLakey and Heller suggest this is going to be a major housecleaning. Lake apparently is seeing this too, leaking only this much to the public. From the article: NONE of the D "signature issues" are working with the public. People reject the $15 minimum wage, free tuition, and single payer health care. They side with Trump on immigration, trade, and the economy (the #1,2, and 3 issues, not necessarily in that order). If you're losing the top three issues, you're out of luck. *LINK*
