Traditionally, midterm elections are brutal for the party in control of the White House. In 2010, after Obama’s impressive victory, primarily because of his deceitfulness about ObamaCare, the Democrats lost the House of Representatives to the Republicans. Despite Obama being reelected in 2012, the Senate flipped in 2014 to the Democrats. 
Now, after the election of Trump in 2016, based on his unpopularity, the Democrats and the media believe the House will flip in 2018. and Pelosi will once again become Speaker of the House. The polls and the pundit are in almost universal agreement about this, but I am certain they are wrong for three reasons. 
First, with passage of the Tax Bill, the economy is soaring, and it’s only going to get better—much better. Despite the militant hostility of the press toward President Trump, coupled with his low approval rating, he is getting the job done. The American people  are enjoying the fruits of his labor where they like it best—in their wallets and purses. His economic victory is massive, as Americans by the millions are coming to realize.
Second, the corruption within the Obama administration is about to explode, especially with the Trump Dossier. Just as Obama used the IRS to target the Tea Party unlawfully, his administration used the DOJ, FBI, and the White House to target candidate Trump, his staff, and practically everybody in his campaign. Presenting this fraudulent Dossier as legitimate, they used it to obtain FISA warrants to spy on Trump. It was also the foundational document for the Mueller investigation. When the American people see how corrupt the Obama administration was, which can no longer be hidden, it will cost the Democrats at the polls this November. This is not wishful thinking on my part. It’s going to happen. 
Third, I believe the sexual misconduct of Congress is going to hurt the Democrats much more than it will hurt the Republicans. Although Americans are very forgiving about such things, they are not forgiving about the use of taxpayer’s funds to pay for it. So far, there are between thirty and forty Congressmen who have used taxpayer funds as hush money to settle claims resulting from their misconduct. Before the next election, all of these men will be unmasked, and I am predicting that 80% of them or more will be Democrats. 
Obviously, other variables are certain to come into play that could have a dramatic impact on the 2018 election, including potential conflicts with North Korea and Iran, but if the scenario I have described plays out, and I am certain that it will, the Republicans will not lose either the Senate or the House. In fact, they will experience gains, perhaps major gains, especially in the Senate.
