Midterm Questions for the GOP

… Republicans are like the dog that caught the car. Now what? President Trump and congressional Republicans raised their supporters’ expectations so high that failing to deliver could have profound consequences. Interestingly, consumer confidence polling shows that Republicans are very optimistic about tax cuts and economic policies while Democrats are very pessimistic about policy changes and worry about where the economy is headed. What if the Republican faithful figure out that very little is happening and not much is likely to happen? Will Republicans in general and Trump supporters in particular vote in the 2018 midterm elections, or will they be no-shows like the Obama voters in 2010 and 2014? CONT.
