    I'm still not hopeful, but it seems like Roe v. Wade being overturned has spurred the Dem cause.
    Despite all the things the Democrats have been given that should help them I'm fairly confident they will find a way to screw it up.

    The GOP takeover is far from a slam dunk in the Senate -- clowns like that quack Dr Oz and Lyin' Herschel Walker, who apparently has taken too many hits to the noggin, are blowing their races. Psycho JD Vance is also losing to Tim Ryan, who has outraised him by 9-1.

    Abortion rights was on the ballot in Kansas and pro-choice won by a staggering 59-41 margin (TFG won the state in '20 by 15 points, assuming he didn't cheat). The motivation of abortion rights drove a turnout of 940,000 Kansans, which is remarkable for that state in a non-general election, which in 2018 was about 1.05m. Primary and referendum elections usually get a fraction of the turnout of a mid-term.

    Abortion rights are now a major lightning rod for Dems, especially in states where governors could overturn the state's abortion rights (in PA for example), and this doesn't bode well for the GOP in what should be a walkover in November.



    538.com now gives Dems a 58% likelihood of keeping the Senate. Last month it was as high as 60% for the GOP.
