2018 has been a good year for Trump overall.
The implementation of last year’s historic tax cuts has given him a strong boost in approval.
And Trump just got some fantastic news that he’s been waiting months for.
The results of the 2018 midterm elections are going to be directly tied to the people’s opinions of President Trump.
If Republicans do well, it will send a clear message that the people are standing with President Trump.
But if they don’t do well, it will send a loud-and-clear message that President Trump will have a lot of work to do if he is to be re-elected in 2020.
And thankfully for Trump, some early news just dropped which shows it could forecast strong Republican support during the upcoming midterms.
Arizona’s 8th Congressional District hosted a special election on Tuesday.
The race was against Republican former state Senator Debbie Lesko and Democrat candidate Hiral Tipirneni.
Democrats targeted in on this race, hoping to get an early win prior to the upcoming midterms.
But they received nothing but bad news on Tuesday, with Lesko coming in with a sizable win.
This is great news for President Trump, who sometimes requires positive results to actually know where people are coming from.
With the media so biased against Trump, it can be extremely difficult to differentiate actual facts compared against anti-Trump rhetoric disguised as facts.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
“Republican former state Sen. Debbie Lesko defeated Democratic candidate Hiral Tipirneni Tuesday in the special election to replace Trent Franks in Arizona’s 8th Congressional District.
President Donald Trump won the district by 21 points during the 2016 presidential election, and Lesko was able to carry it by six points, according to The Associated Press.
Lesko will replace former GOP Rep. Trent Franks, who resigned in December over allegations of sexual misconduct. Franks reportedly had pressured a female aide to carry his surrogate child and offered her $5 million.
“I’ve really come a long way and this is really quite overwhelming, it’s very surreal,” Lesko said during her victory speech. “Twenty-five years ago I left an abusive husband and I sure as heck never would have dreamt in a million years that I would be running for Congress to be a congresswoman. I mean, that’s right, now I’m actually running for Congress, I won!”
Tipirneni said she still plans on running again this November, The AP reported. She is confident the margin will continue to shrink and eventually tip the scales in her favor.
“We weren’t surprised, we’re not surprised,” Tipirneni told The AP. “And we’re still waiting to see the rest of the votes. We’re not conceding. We’re still waiting for votes to be counted — so this isn’t over.”
The AP called the race for Lesko after state officials shared the results of 155,000 mail-in ballots, representing almost 75 percent of the votes cast.
No President can ever be sure how the midterm elections will go.
The 2010 midterm elections were terrible for then-President Obama.
But Donald Trump’s approval rating is currently higher than Obama’s was at that point.
Only time will tell how the President will do.
Do you think Republicans will do well in the upcoming midterm elections?
