Do you believe in mermaids, unicorns and fairies? The Democrats have suffered election losses in a trend that has yet to reverse, he said.
"Meanwhile, all Republicans would need to obtain 60 seats would be to win every seat in the 30 states that Trump won", he continued. Data collection was conducted on behalf of CBS News by SSRS of Glen Mills, PA. Phone numbers were dialed from samples of both standard land-line and cell phones. Despite Trump's lack of support, this model does not factor in the President as an individual, so even a change in the President himself (due to impeachment or any other cause) would not change some of the key model inputs.
So evangelicals held their noses and voted for Trump, despite the fact that his personal behavior was clearly at odds with the teachings of Christ.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) asserted that Trump is "expanding the Republican tent". Twenty-six percent of respondents attributed the gridlock to President Donald Trump's leadership while 25 percent laid the blame on Democratic opposition. Bought and paid for is more like it!
There was some justification for thinking this.
American Action Network surveyed 1,000 likely voters nationwide from August 1 through August 3.
But such polls have a flaw: People tend to forget how they voted in previous elections, with more recalling they voted for the victor than actually did. Now they have a president who supports the idea and they still can't get it done.
This is underscored by the negative opinions Americans continue to have of both political parties, although the Democratic Party is viewed slightly more favorably - 39 percent have a favorable view of the Democratic party, while 32 percent view the Republican party favorably. "The 2016 election did not create more instability, in the aggregate, than others", it reported.
In a new Morning Consult/POLITICO survey, half of registered GOP voters said they viewed Russian Federation as an enemy or unfriendly to the United States, up 13 points from a poll in May, while 37 percent said they viewed Russian Federation as friendly or an ally - down 12 points from the May 18-22 poll.
Democrats who hoped nationally watched special congressional elections in Kansas, Montana and Georgia would deliver rebukes of President Donald Trump came away disappointed.
But unlike the propaganda "real news" videos posted to Trump's Facebook page in recent months - made to appear as "real" news segments hosted by Trump's daughter-in-law Lara - House Republicans' new venture more closely resembles the commercials put out by previous re-election campaigns. Democrats should instead appeal broadly to working-class voters, he said.
The ads, run through Google, target search engine users who search their lawmaker's name, and directs them to microsites featuring clocks detailing the last time their representative spoke to constituents.
