The GOP rides the bull market over the bearish Democrats. @LizPeek 

"...The same survey showed the Democrats’ generic ballot lead had shrunk during the same period, with 46 percent of people preferring Democratic candidates to 42 percent for Republicans, echoing public readings.

Of course, polls go up and down, but it appears that if President Trump delivers on important issues, like cutting taxes and streamlining regulations, he will be rewarded. It also seems as though the relentless assault on the president from the liberal media has helped polarize the country but is not bearing political fruit; supporters of the president most likely tune it out.

But here is the real reason why the frustration and hatred from the left will only grow: Democrats have no one who can contest Trump’s grip on the presidency. This is their problem.

Trump stormed onto the scene and succeeded against long odds because he offered the country a new story. Voters were bone weary of the same old arguments and failed nostrums; they delighted in Trump’s bold attacks on establishment policies. They feared the country was sliding in the wrong direction and welcomed a new approach.

Democrats, too, need a new story. They need their own Donald Trump, someone who can weave progressive threads together with mainstream American values to create a new tapestry, winning over disaffected voters on the left and the right. That person has not yet emerged...."
