“A growing number of Republicans are privately warning of increasing fears of a total wipeout in 2020: House, Senate, and White House,” Axios reports.
- House Republicans in swing districts are retiring at a very fast pace, especially in the suburbs of Texas and elsewhere.
- The Republican Senate majority, once considered relatively safe, suddenly looks in serious jeopardy. Democrats are raising more money, and polling better, than Republican incumbents in battleground after battleground.
- President Trump trails every major Democratic candidate nationally and in swing states — and his favorable ratings remain well under 50%.
“All of this is unfolding while the economy still looks strong, and before public impeachment proceedings have officially begun.”
