(National Sentinel)Â Dominance: If you believed polls from last year and earlier this year, the Democrats were expected to win back control of Congress in a “blue wave” that would sweep the GOP from power and set up President Donald Trump’s impeachment.
Now many of those same polls are showing something vastly different.
Call it the “Trump effect.”
According toÂ a new tracking poll from Reuters, Republicans have taken aÂ six-point lead over Democrats ahead of the midterm elections in November.

For the week ending May 20th, Republicans were up by 40.7 percent to Democrats’ 34.5 percent.
It seems as though “hate” and “socialism” and “impeachment” are not winning campaign slogans.
BreitbartÂ noted further:
While House prospects remain turbulent for the GOP, Senate chancesâ€“given the map of whoâ€™s up for re-election this yearâ€“remain much more promising for President Trumpâ€™s party.
At least ten Democrats face re-election to U.S. Senate seats in states that President Trump won in 2016, including states he won with commanding victories over Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton. Republicans have just a couple of seats that are in potential jeopardy of loss to the Democrats, in Arizona and Nevada, but Republicans have pickup opportunities in West Virginia, Montana, Missouri, Florida, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Ohio, and North Dakota.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Tuesday that if polling is correct, Republicans can expect to pick up four-to-six more seats in the Senate, putting the party in a much stronger position to approve Trump nominees and push through his agenda.
Also, POTUS Trump’s approval rating continues to swell. Rasmussen Reports has it back at 50 percent.
