Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams raised eyebrows throughout the state over the weekend; bizarrely admitting the predicted “blue wave” requires all voters -including those without “documentation.”
Abrams was speaking during a campaign rally late-last week when she commented on the progressives’ prospects of retaking control of Congress this fall; saying the “blue wave” was comprised of “those who are documented and undocumented.”
“But the thing of it is, the blue wave is African-American. It’s white, it’s Latino, it’s Asian Pacific Islander. It is disabled. It is differently abled. It is LGBTQ. It is law enforcement. It is veterans,” Abrams said to cheers. “It is made up of those who are told they are not worthy of being here … those who are documented and undocumented.”
BLUE WAVE CRASHING: Democrat Advantage TUMBLES Ahead of 2018 Midterms
The Democratic Party’s national advantage over their Republican opponents continued to collapse this week; shrinking to four percentage points after double-digit leads just months ago.
A recent survey by CBS News shows the liberal advantage largely evaporating ahead of the 2018 midterms, with 36 percent of those asked saying the GOP should retain control of Congress and 40% hoping for a left-wing “blue wave” in November.
The shrinking advantage and surprising poll numbers were conducted after the President’s “zero tolerance” policy on illegal immigration made national headlines, with the Commander-in-Chief urging Congress to find a permanent solution to the escalating border crisis.
“CBS’s poll, which sampled 2,063 adults between June 21-22, 2018 and has a margin of error of 2.6 percent, also shows there are a significant number of Trump supporters who opposed the zero-tolerance policy but did not hold the president responsible. The results also suggest voters are compartmentalizing the issue,” writes the Daily Caller.

BLUE WAVE CRASHING: GOP Raises $100 MILLION More Than Dems Heading into Midterms
The Republican National Committee out-raised the Democratic National Committee by more than $100 million in recent months; raising serious questions over the media’s overhyped “blue wave” predicted for this fall.
According to the Washington Examiner, the RNC took in a whopping $14.2 million in July alone; smashing estimates and beating fundraising figures from both 2010 and 2014.
“Since the beginning of the 2018 election cycle, the RNC has now hauled in $227.2 million. The Democratic National Committee has raised less than half that amount – $109 million – as of the end of June, according to Federal Election Commission records,” writes the Examiner.
“Democrats raised around $6 million and $8 million in May and June, respectively, but have not released their July numbers yet,” adds the article.
“We’ve built the biggest field program we’ve ever had to defend our majorities in the House and Senate. History might be against us, but we’re making sure every voter knows we’re the party of results. All the Democrats have is resistance,” said RNC chair Ronna McDaniel.
