Midterms - A referendum or reset from 2016?

Midterms - A referendum or reset from 2016?

November 2, 20181 min read

It’s coming to America with the hype of an old-fashioned prize fight.

Pundits have been speculating, party officials have been spinning and most of us have been guessing about what the outcome of the 2018 midterm elections will look like.

  • Can we expect wholesale change in either House?
  • Is this really a referendum on the Trump administration?
  • And if Democrats seize control of Congress will it mean two years of stalemates or will an agenda surface to keep America moving forward?

Or…if there is no actually change of power and the deck chairs essentially remain unshuffled in Congress and the Senate – is the confirmation that despite the outcries from the Left, America is content with the current administration’s agenda?

There are many issues at play this week such as voter turnout, the urban/rural divide and if news coverage does swayed opinions.

And, that’s where our experts can help.
