    While Conservatives and Liberals flail away at each other, complete with name calling, ugly remarks speculation on one's patriotism, and other melodrama, they ignore the fact that Independent / Moderates decide the outcome of elections. With this in mind, it's looking very much like this swing voter group is now siding with the Liberals, and will swing the House to the Democrats, this despite Conservative voter suppression and district gerrymandering. Liberals would do well to remember however this is not an endorsement of the Liberal agenda by the moderates, but a disdain for the Trump administration, that has made some ill advised moves and comments such as giving away top secret intel. to high ranking Russians right in the oval office, and lying about Mexico paying for a border wall. So Liberals, enjoy the support of the middle while it lasts, because it probably won't. You're a fragmented group without a cohesive message, and an undisciplined base of voters who frequently don't vote if they don't get everything they want.

    Bill Clinton was right when he said. "Getting Democrats to agree on a course of action is like herding cats"
