As Trump Stumps GOP Bumps, Giving Signs That Blue Wave Could Become Blue Blip
- The plants and factories
are coming back like never before.
- One reason for therecent change in polling
is President Trump's non-stop campaigning.
So far this month, he's visited 22 cities,
and plans another 10rallies before Election Day.
His appearances are beingmet with great enthusiasm.
This Texas stadium, packedwith 18,000 supporters,
while tens of thousands more wanted in.
It's this enthusiasm
that's giving Republicansincreased confidence.
One administration official tells us
they think the President's campaigning
and the Supreme Court confirmation
of Justice Brett Kavanaugh
will help them pick up aseat or two in the Senate.
The same administration official
also thinks the idea of ablue wave has been overblown.
- Anger is the numberone issue on both sides.
- [Jenna] Most agree,including CBN's David Brody
who was on NBC's Meetthe Press this weekend.
Anger is fueling both sides.
- The Democrats have theanti-Trump venom going for 'em.
They have the super-soaker, if you will.
The problem is, is now Republican,
problem for Democrats, is that Republicans
now have their own super-soakerin Brett Kavanaugh.
- [Jenna] A GOP source onthe ground tells CBN News
they've seen a major enthusiasm shift
because of the ugly SupremeCourt battle over Kavanaugh.
This source says it's makingraces in the toss-up states
of Missouri, North Dakota,and Indiana much tighter.
- She's going to befantastic, Marsha Blackburn.
- [Jenna] In other states like Tennessee,
Hoping to change that,Representative Marsha Blackburn
is full-on embracing Trump,and appears to be pulling ahead
of her opponent, Phil Bredesen.
That, according to a newWashington Post-Schar School poll,
the most contestedbattleground House districts
still remain too close to call,
with 50% of those polledsupporting Democratic candidates,
and 47% backing Republicans.
From now until November 6th,
voters can expect to heara lot of similar themes.
- This will be the electionof the caravan, Kavanaugh,
law and order, tax cuts, and common sense.
- [Jenna] The question iswho can keep enthusiasm
high enough to drive them to the polls?
