While Democrats may see momentum ahead of the November 2018 midterms, voter registration may have them pull back their excitement just a little bit.

The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that the number of Democrats and Democrat-leaning independents registered to votes has fallen to 75% from 84% in November.

This year’s midterm elections could go either way. For the first time in years, the party which controls the presidency could retain control of the House and Senate. That is not the preferred narrative, however. Turn on almost any cable news show and you’ll hear about the big blue wave supposedly...

It’s pretty clear that Democrats are more motivated to vote. Much of that is the nature of opposition — it gets people more excited to be against something than to be for something.

If you listen to the liberal media, a “Blue Wave” is coming in the 2018 midterms. Progressives across the country are just waiting to turn out by the millions and help the Democrats retake control of the House and Senate.

But what if that’s just a narrative? What if the media just...

As we sit on the edge of April headed into 2018 crunch time, those in the media promising a massive blue wave (Texas primaries anyone?) come November will be forced to contend with data that suggests that this blue wave is nothing more than an over-hyped trickle.

In the early days of Legal Insurrection, particularly after Obama’s 2008 victory at least through the 2010 midterms, I often saw the word “eeyore” used to describe those in the conservative blogosphere whose main role in life was to spread gloom.

We all knew this would happen after failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton bashed those who did not vote her. She said that women who did not vote for her did so because a man told them not to.
