Democrats traumatized by 2016 are having pre-midterms nightmares

I am just amazed.  PTSD from 2016?  I think they meant to say TDS.

On the eve of the midterms, President Donald Trump’s approval is falling, young voters are energized, and Republicans look poised to lose their House majority.

It’s enough to make Democrats nervous, miserable wrecks.

 

Haunted by memories of 2016, liberals around the country are riven with anxiety in the campaign’s homestretch. They’re suspicious of favorable polls and making election night contingency plans in case their worst fears come true. Some report literal nightmares about a Democratic wipeout.

“We're kind of just in the bed-wetting phase now," said Democratic pollster John Anzalone, a Hillary Clinton campaign alumnus who spent election night 2016 in Clinton’s Manhattan war room.

Two years later, even thinking about the prospect of a repeat of that night’s letdown is still too much for many Democrats to bear.

.

.

.

Anzalone said the shock of Donald Trump’s upset victory, which was missed by most forecasts, still hangs over many in the party. “There’s some PTSD,” he said.

That is not an exaggeration. A study published last month in the Journal of American College Health found that one-quarter of college students experienced “clinically significant” symptoms of trauma from the 2016 election results.

.

.

.

A September AP/MTV poll found that 61 percent of Democrats ages 15 to 34 reported feeling anxious over the midterms, up 22 percentage points from July.

But pre-midterm stress syndrome isn’t afflicting only young people: A YouGov survey released Friday found that Democrats are 50 percent more likely than Republicans to report that they are “eating their feelings” ahead of the midterms. Other recent polling has registered high levels of stress among Democrats ahead of Tuesday’s elections.

For many traumatized Democrats, heading into Tuesday feels like flying again after surviving a plane crash. Some say the stakes feel even higher than in 2016: It was one thing for Trump to win in an electoral fluke, despite losing the popular vote, when he was still a political newcomer. It will be downright terrifying, they say, if Americans can’t place a check on him after two years of his megalomaniacal rule.

Yes, I am in a district they are trying to flip with a Pelosi wannabee.  I am definitely going to vote tomorrow as this will be Katya's first General Election (she first voted in a primary).

Exactly and good for her. Yeah our Dem has been trying to portray herself as a moderate and never mentions her party in her ads AT ALL. But she has been having people like Eric Holder come and vouch for her, also she is a longtime Democrat financier here in NC.

Talk about wishful thinking. Trump draws tens of thousands of people everywhere he speaks and even has to turn people away. Any prominent Democrat who speaks can barely draw a few hundred and can't even fill the venue they speak at. The polls are just about as relevant as they were right before the last election. The only way Republicans can lose is election fraud. The radical left has good reason to worry. I predict violence in the street tomorrow night as the radical left throws the biggest temper tantrum of them all.

Here we have a Democrat who follows orders from the Pelosi types without question. It's gonna be an up hill battle here but she needs to go.

Thought this was interesting.  Good old Nate Silver betting the Pass and Don't Pass lines.

 

Btw, comparing  a snowflake Democrat to someone with actual PTSD is just wrong.  If someone other than the candidate is losing sleep over elections then that person needs help.

 

Nate Silver says Dems could retake House, or not: 'Both extremely possible'

CNN calls it for the Dems.


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
