Republicans are beginning to fear they could lose the Senate and White House in 2020, while failing to retake the House.

More and more Republicans are beginning to fear a “total wipeout” in the upcoming 2020 election, according to Axios, warning that their party could fail to recapture the House and lose both the Senate and the White House.

A total of 19 House Republicans in swing districts have already announced they will not seek re-election, and in the Senate — which largely had been considered safe — “Democrats are raising more money, and polling better, than Republican incumbents in battleground after battleground.”

Meanwhile, Trump is trailing every major Democratic candidate both nationally and in swing states, Axios noted, and his approval ratings are consistently well below 50 percent.

A growing number of Republicans are warning this is a recipe for disaster at the polls next year.

U.S. Chamber of Commerce senior political strategist Scott Reed told Axios that the Republican Party “was shaken” by fundraising reports for the third quarter, which showed that Democratic challengers in Arizona, Iowa and Maine are out-raising three GOP senators.

Reed said, “We are all worried,” and called the situation “a three-alarm fire.”

Why? Because Democrats only need to net three seats in order to gain control of the Senate.

That's Great News! They Lose The Orange Parasite! They Lose the House and Senate! Sounds Like a Good Plan! Hopefully there will be a Bonus: McConnell and Trump go to Prison---along with most of the Inbred Incestuous Trump Family! Thieves and Cowards!

I hope some or all of the 19 have the decency to protect the Constitution and uphold their oath to protect the United States of America. The Republican Party is enabling a Russian asset (Assets) in the White House. Protecting a criminal, a liar, a white supremacist. He really is an illegitimate president - he makes Benedict Arnolds treason trivial!

This band of billionaire funded republican politicians are the most anti-democratic, anti-American, anti-healthcare and anti-voting rights bunch of cash addicts that this country has ever had to suffer in government. They are pro-oligarchy though. Their use of social media manipulation, foreign interference and attacks on the free press are counter to everything that this country was founded on. They all must lose their jobs in 2020!
