Limbaugh: D.C. 'uninhabitable' if Dems don't take House
Democrats expect to retake the House in November, given that the president's party usually loses seats in the first midterms, and they are convinced their "resistance" to the Trump administration is gaining followers.
"If the Democrats do not retake the House, I think Washington may be uninhabitable for a while," talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh said Tuesday.
"I think we haven't seen the meltdown that is going to happen among many elected Democrats, the charges of a rigged election, of Russian interference, that Trump did it again, anything they can come up with.
"They are so, so certain they're gonna win this," he said. "They've already banked on the win. They're already planning to impeach Kavanaugh and Trump, and if that doesn't happen, I really think they may lose it all and very quickly."
He pointed out that the Republican candidate for governor in far-left California is only 6 or 7 points behind the Democrat.
"But the conventional wisdom is that the Democrats are gonna retake the House in numbers we haven't seen in who knows how long, since 1994," Limbaugh said. "I've been wondering, 'What if all of this is just a bunch of caca, media and polling unit manufactured, just like it was in 2016?'
"There were not very many polls in 2016 that got even close to being right. Rasmussen was one - and by the way, Rasmussen has Trump at 51 percent approval. The CNN approval number for Trump is 41 percent."
He cited a new headline that said 209 House seats are confirmed or leaning Democrat.
"An average, ordinary person is supposed to conclude from that that the Democrats are gonna pick up 209 seats. The magic number for the House in control is 218, and so they go on to say that, 'This means the Democrats are only nine seats short of the majority!' So they want you to believe the Democrats have zero seats but they're gonna pick up 209.
That's how much hatred for Republicans there is. The blue wave polls out there say that Republicans are gonna lose anywhere from 26 to 50, maybe up to 60 seats."
He said the headline was "specifically designed to make it appear that the Democrats are leaning toward picking up 209 seats, and the reason that's written that way is to convey hopelessness."
