Two Special Elections Could Hint at Blue Wave

Two Special Elections Could Hint at Blue Wave

FiveThirtyEight: “On Tuesday, we’ll get a taste of whether Democrats’ electoral advantage on paper will hold up in practice, as California and Wisconsin hold special elections for two vacant congressional seats.”

“The main event is in the California 25th Congressional District, a bellwether seat in the north Los Angeles suburbs, where both parties see a chance to add to their ranks in the House. But if Democrats are also competitive in the quickly reddening, rural Wisconsin 7th Congressional District, it could signal another blue wave in the fall.”

I see the Rs won, but what is Silver's analysis in the aftermath? Has the blue wave been hinted at?

He'll get back to you as soon as he receives his response script from JournoList.

red wave all over op’s mom

Nice to see some Latino Republicans win. The GOP has to find a way to get more sensible Latinos on board.

Quite a few Latin American countries have actually shifted to the right. It is hard to fight the democrat message of open borders and free handouts to illegals but it has to be done with the Latino population growing at such a high rate.

You'll never convince the viva la raza and open border/free handout types to vote anything but Democrat. 

But there are a lot of Latinos that can be brought over to the right and it will be necessary to keep the dems out of office in the future.

So when are we going to find out if there is a blue wave coming?

Trust - 

It is a Blue Wave . . . a wave goodbye.

The media and their worshippers. Half of the leftys I work with (and I work with all leftys...I've gotta be the only moderate one, and lol @ a full on conservative even being there) don't follow a second of politics but they all hate trump cause he said grab em by the pussy. Theyre completely clueless about Biden or Hillary or Obamas "misdeeds" and even when they learn about them they're so incredibly ignorant that they don't even understand the consequences that are the result of shady deals.  

They have no idea why people consider China to be bad and they all think its a racism thing. Theres absolutely no critical thought process. Its bullshit that's constantly parroted from the msm. And the lies. Omg the lies that the msm is so happy to use as a tool for them to use to control the narrative. Its So effective on people that don't question sources or context.
