Democrats seem pretty convinced that they are going to take back the House and Senate in November as part of the ‘blue wave’ we all keep hearing about. Unfortunately for them, there is a lot of evidence out there to suggest that’s not going to happen. Including the polls…
Republicans have also raised a ton of money and have made up serious ground in Senate races.
It’s looking very likely that this blue wave is going to be more of a blue ripple.
Democrats are counting on the fact that they are going to earn the youth vote.
One NBC reporter found out the hard way that the Democrats might have some work to do there.
Jacob Soboroff went down to beautiful Orange Country, California recently to talk to some students at UC Irvine about the upcoming midterms.
It didn’t go as expected.
From The Daily Caller:
Large groups of students looked at the reporter stone-faced. It took some time for any student to come forward and say they were going to vote.
The reporter went on to ask if the students knew about the Kavanaugh Supreme Court battle or the Russia investigation.
“I don’t watch the news,” one student said coldly.
“We’re, like, the most unreliable voter demographic,” said another student, who appeared unmotivated to vote. Soboroff was stunned and called the answers “shocking.”
Watch what happened when I asked a bus stop full of CA students if they'd vote in their *key* midterm district.
While Trump's latest fire drill is underway, here's something else to think about: why young Americans don't vote.

Well, that didn’t go as planned.
Looks like the young people aren’t exactly energized over in Southern California.
A small sign but definitely not a good one for Democrats.
