A new poll conducted by Emerson College shows most Americans feel “better off” under President Trump compared with two years ago; sparking new fears for liberal candidates heading into the 2018 midterm elections.
The recent survey asked likely voters if they are “Better or worse off financially than you were two years ago.” A staggering 42% said they were “better off,” with 30% saying they were roughly the same and 26% claiming to be “worse off.”

The strong statistics further signals a growing US economic recovery under President Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress.

BLUE WAVE CRASHING: New Polls Show Democrats' Advantage COLLAPSING
Democrats across the country are sounding the alarm after new polling shows liberal candidates are slowly losing ground to their GOP opponents just months before the high-stakes 2018 midterm elections.
According to new surveys published by Real Clear Politics, the Democrat advantage has largely vanished; shrinking from a whipping 13 points in December to just four points at the end of May.
The poll cites a list of Trump’s achievements as the motivating factor behind the ‘Trump Bump,’ saying tax cuts helped energize the President’s base while average Americans across the country are beginning to “question” the entire Mueller investigation.
“There’s a couple of things going on. I think the good economic news is starting to break through. I think people are starting to question where the Mueller investigation is going. I think it had kept the president down for a while. And I think the tax cuts energized the Republican base and are playing a role in the president’s improving fortunes,” writes the survey.

“Democrats need to 86 Hollywood…This type of combative rhetoric does nothing for Americans,” he tweeted.
