Last night’s Saturday Night Live captures perfectly what every Democrat is feeling this final weekend:
For further elaboration, Politico:
On the eve of the midterms, President Donald Trump’s approval is falling, young voters are energized, and Republicans look poised to lose their House majority.
It’s enough to make Democrats nervous, miserable wrecks.
Haunted by memories of 2016, liberals around the country are riven with anxiety in the campaign’s homestretch. They’re suspicious of favorable polls and making election night contingency plans in case their worst fears come true. Some report literal nightmares about a Democratic wipeout.
The unexpected trauma of losing the 2016 presidential election has indeed left Democrats extremely wary of feeling confident about Tuesday’s election, and every speculative up and down in the news cycle is an emotional roller-coaster. If the current numbers showing a very good night ahead for Democrats local and national are for some reason not correct, you can take comfort in the fact that we’ll all be wrong together.
Just like we were in 2016. Sorry! Keep yourself busy by volunteering for something and keep hope alive.
