GOP can pull off midterms

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - MARVIN L. HOOVIS Cen­ter­ville, Mas­sachusetts

Re­pub­li­can poll­sters pre­dict dif­fi­cult midterm elec­tion prob­lems for Re­pub­li­can can­di­dates — be­cause, they say, al­though peo­ple like Pres­i­dent Trump’s econ­omy, they don’t like Mr. Trump.

These poll­sters ig­nore that Trump ral­lies draw thou­sands of strong sup­port­ers who do like the pres­i­dent’s poli­cies, es­pe­cially the ben­e­fits from tax re­forms and the marked eco­nomic im­prove­ment. They also strongly agree with his en­ergy plans, fight­ing ter­ror­ism, se­cur­ing the bor­ders, end­ing the Paris Agree­ment and chang­ing the Iran nu­clear deal. Most of all, they ap­pre­ci­ate his stand­ing up to the threats from Com­mu­nist China and Rus­sia, and from the so­cial­ist Democrats.

Mr. Trump has also earned re­spect for re­spond­ing to the myr­iad false ac­cu­sa­tions from Democrats, “nev­erTrump” Repub­li­cans, lib­er­als and the lib­eral me­dia. With a lit­tle more help from the GOP, Democrats and in­de­pen­dents who have ben­e­fit­ted from his poli­cies, Repub­li­cans will have a good chance of keep­ing their House and Se­nate ma­jori­ties to bet­ter serve our cit­i­zens and coun­try.
