At first glance, the topline numbers look bad for President Trump and his party: The president's approval is an underwhelming 43 percent in the RealClearPolitics average of polls, and the GOP is trailing on the generic ballot by about 5 percent. One reason for those lousy numbers is the surge in GOP retirements: 26-the highest number of GOP departures since 2006. This year, we are fighting against historic trends, so we have to connect with our voters.
So where is the good news? "Republicans need to defeat Democratic incumbents to hold the Senate, which isn't easy in this kind of year". "The question is how many". But Nunes obviously fears that if the Senate doesn't confirm Kavanaugh soon, they might not have a chance because Democrats could be controlling the Senate in 2019. The Democratic party could also pick up two more seats in the 18th and 19th districts; Republican incumbent Jim Walsh, a freshman who won a blue seat in 2016, is trailing Democratic challenger Erin Frasier.

I want wall-to-wall coverage of Trump's every speech, rally, tweet and utterance, because they most reveal his character, and Trump's character is the ceiling on Trump's presidency.
