If you’re Nancy Pelosi, you’re getting a little nervous these days. Or, well, maybe not.
Pelosi’s ability to sense the political winds is legendary for being entirely insensitive.
That might be why she continues on her anti-tax cut ‘crumbs’ tour despite that polling shows a steady shift in favor of Republicans as we head into the thick of the midterm elections.

“People get caught up in the anti-Trump messaging. That’s what the messaging has been,” said Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.).
“The Democrats focus so much on Trump and the carnival that is around him that we don’t spend enough time talking about who we are and what we will do if the voters give us a chance in the majority.”
