President Donald Trump’s fantasy that there will be a red wave in November because of him instead of a blue wave was brutally wrecked by The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday.

As it becomes clearer and clearer that Republicans are going to suffer a massive political defeat in November by the Democrats, Trump has sought to downplay the coming blue wave that will likely sweep the GOP out of power in Congress by repeatedly insisting that we’ll actually see a red wave because of him.

On Wednesday, Republicans were smacked with reality as a longtime deep red GOP stronghold in Ohio remained too close to call as Democratic candidate Danny O’Connor is within striking distance of his Republican opponent in a race that Republicans expected to win by a safe margin.

If this conservative district can nearly flip blue, no Republican is safe as the nation poises to make the election a referendum on Trump and his policies.

On Twitter, however, Trump continued pushing his own fantasy that Republicans should not worry because he’ll bring about a “red wave” in November.

The response from The Wall Street Journal did not hold back.

“Republicans on present trend are poised in November to lose their majority in the House of Representatives and a slew of governorships,” WSJ began. “That’s the clear message from Tuesday’s election contests and a growing body of evidence. The President’s persona is trumping positive policy results among voters, and without some intervening news or a change in strategy the result is likely to be a national left turn.”

The editorial continued by informing Republicans that there are 68 House seats that are not in nearly as red of districts as the Ohio district they are close to losing, and that Democrats only need to win 23 of them to take over the House.

“The ominous news for Republicans is that they hold about 68 House seats that are less Republican than this Ohio district. Most include stretches of suburbia that have been GOP strongholds but where many voters dislike Mr. Trump’s abrasive style and polarizing governance.”

“Tuesday’s results cast doubt on the current White House strategy to make the election a referendum on Donald J. Trump,” the blistering editorial continued. “His omnipresence also motivates Democrats, while it may de-motivate soft Republicans and independents who dislike Mr. Trump.”

Democrats could even take the Senate, the editorial stated.

“In this political environment, even the GOP’s Senate majority isn’t safe. Only three or four GOP seats are in play, but the party could lose Nevada, Arizona, and Tennessee. Republicans need to defeat Democratic incumbents to hold the Senate, which isn’t easy in this kind of year.”

“Our sense is that Republican voters haven’t recognized how much jeopardy the party is in,” WSJ concluded. “Many are content to listen only to their safe media spaces that repeat illusions about a ‘red wave’ and invoke 2016 when the media said Mr. Trump couldn’t win.”

Trump and his Republican supporters are truly delusional if they really believe that a red wave is coming in November. Democrats have been winning elections in places they haven’t been able to compete in for a long time because voters reject Trump’s behavior and policies.

Voter remorse is very real across the country right now and Trump is not helping the Republican Party by lashing out on Twitter every day with his lies and narcissism. Republicans in Congress are equally to blame for the coming blue wave because voters are sick and tired of them refusing to stand up to Trump and act as a check on his power.

This election could be the beginning of the end of Trump’s presidency and his harmful policies Republicans have been forcing down America’s throat. A backlash of epic proportions is what Republicans need to force them to truly change their ways.
