1. Let's take a closer look at the 2018 midterm results for the House. Many people don't understand how close it was. Dems won 40 seats. Sounds big right? Meh. They needed 23 to take control. So basically they are only +17 in the 🏠. For the GOP to win it back they need +18
2. But let's dig a bit deeper into those 18 seats that cost the GOP control of the 🏠 for the "muh we are all doomed" crowd and the "demographic" crowd.

3. 4 of the 18 was due to dem court ordered redistricting in PA. So now we are down to 14 seats.
4. These are the 14 closest races from 2018 that I could find. (CA21, CA39, ME2, IA3, SC1, OK5, FL26, GA6, NJ3, NM2, NY22, UT4, VA2, VA7)

5. The biggest spread was IA3 with 7709 votes and the smallest was UT4 with 694.
6. The turnout for the midterms was the largest in about 50 years. The total number of voters are est at about 113 million. This is important. The turnout was bigger than normal for a midterm. This is not likely to last in 2022 and beyond. However, 2020 should see a big turnout.
7. So, with the highest turnout in 50 years the Dems were able to win control of the house with only a 59,547 vote margin. That's it. Out of 113+ million voters a little less than 60,000 votes determined the control of the House.
8. Let's put that in % terms. The Dems won the House by .053% of the total vote. Not exactly a landslide there. To even approach a 1% victory would mean the Dems would need an additional 1,070,000 votes.
9. Now think about this. The Dems put everything they had into this election:

10. They invested $$100s of millions, they made a massive get out the vote. They even had to resort to in your face voter fraud in some places like CA with vote harvesting and FL.
11. Along with this massive effort on the Dem side, they had a weak GOP uniparty speaker who seemed like he actively worked with the Dems to lose the election.

12. The Dems also had the entire fake media on their side, all the social media companies and an active Special consul
13. With all of that the House was won only by a .053% margin a mere 59,547 votes.

14. That's not to mention the fact that not only did the Dems not win the Senate they lost seats.

15. This is why Pres. Trump said we had a great victory.
16. This is why I agreed 100% with Trump. The victory in the midterms was major for the deplorables.

17. Yes, it wasn't a complete victory we did come a bit short but in a normal year with all that against us we could have lost bigly. Sometimes a draw is a win.
18. What will 2020 bring? It will, like 2018, be a base election and it will have massive turnout. Every vote counts but remember the Dems brought out just about everyone alive and dead in 2018. The GOP didn't.
19. This also explains the push for the Dems to want the EC removed. They can't win long term. Their arc of history is dying out. They are clustered into a couple lonely safe spaces. They can't hold the House nor the Senate long term and they know it.
20. Stop listening to the "muh we are all doomed" and "demographics will win" crowds, instead have faith and knowledge that the Dems are withering away in their safe spaces unable to expand their bubbles.
